Manic Street Preachers rocker Nicky Wire has a valuable collection of postcards featuring personal notes from stars including John Lydon and Morrissey.
The bassist was a music-mad child and constantly begged his parents to take him to see his heroes in concert.
But he was forced to miss some gigs - including shows by The Sex Pistols and The Smiths - through illness, and his mother had a special way of ensuring her boy wasn't too disappointed.
He says, "If I couldn't go to a gig she'd send a postcard saying, 'My son's really ill, could you send him a postcard?'. I got all these brilliant ones."
