Looking For Some Help With A Signature
Apr 28th, 2018 at 5:29pm
Alert Board Moderator about this Post! 
I have an autographed Rolling Stones piece and am looking for some help on one the signatures.

This is a professionally framed poster from The Licks World Tour.  It has four signatures plus the artist (Joe Whyte).  This piece originally came from the collection of Will Simmons of Rockit Collectibles.

Three of the signatures are clearly from Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood.  But I can not figure out who the fourth signature is from.  It's the signature on the cowboy hat.  It certainly does not resemble any Mick Jagger signatures that I have seen.

I would love to hear and thoughts or opinions on this signature.  Below are some pictures.  Thanks.

That 4th one certainly isnt Mick Jagger. First name looks more like 'Ray'. The second name seems to start with a 'J'

Check out Bernard Fowler's signature.
(I couldn't post picture of it, but you can find it on line.)
The last name looks like a match.
The first name could have just been scribbled in a rush.
Nobody else with the band at the time comes close.

Its close to Fowlers signature...at least the surname...you can look thru eBay for his autograph...However, nothing resembles the first name....I thought possibly it could also say "Fischer"...but Lisa's autograph is very "cutsey".

That first name, to me, looks like Ray...maybe Reg...that dot at the end is also not indicative of anyone I can think of...certainly not BERNARD.

One other possibility is the inker or the colorist of the piece who may have worked with The Artist you listed.

Wiki does not list a birth name in his bio main article, but in the side bar, it does list him as R. Bernard Fowler. Mystery, likely solved...though I do not see his signature like that anywhere else...

Nice Job Bluzdude!! Let's go get drunk You rock! Let's go get drunk

I can certainly see the last name possibly being "Fowler".  I guess my question would then would be, has he ever signed his name as "Royland Fowler"?  The dot at the end of the first name could also go along with it being something like "Regi".

Not sure how interactive he is on social media...but you could try reaching out to him with the pic and asking him...Good Luck!!

I did a bit of research for you...I spoke to the artist, via messenger...I sent him your photobucket link and verified he was the artist and if he knew of the signature...,and he said this:

Hi Paul, thanks!
Yes, that's a blast from the past, I was hired to do that artwork by Beyond the Pale posters, here in Melbourne when I was just starting out.
No idea about the signature though.
Cheers


I think its Fowler at this point...but the poster dealer in MEL may know something if you wish to peruse it closer.

I certainly do appreciate the effort and the information.  I did try sending a message to Bernie Fowler through his Facebook page, but have not gotten a response yet.
