    Rat bastard showed up long enough to get tax free for the year then scurried off to leave us eating sand in the wind...literally.

    I called in to a radio station in Charlotte, NC once when I was in high school and got to talk to Tommy Chong. If that doesn't count, I met Mike D outside of the Tibetan Freedom Concert in Taipei two years ago.

    Adam Faith. Okay, you've never heard of him outside the UK.
    In the late 50' / early 60's Adam was a HUGE star in Britsland. Loads of top ten hits. Well, when I was a little boy me and my "big sister" waited outside a seaside theatre stage door to get Adam's autograph. There were only about a dozen girls there. (So maybe the Beatles had arrived on the charts by then). As the green limo rolled up they all started screaming and pushing. The next thing I know I'm trapped INSIDE the stage door alone with Adam Faith, and everyone else is on the outside. I was petrified! He says "What do YOU want curly?" Trembling I replied "Can I have your autograph please Adam?" He signed, and I couldn't escape quick enough. Of course outside the door I was something of a hero.

    I still have the autograph.

    On the streets of Chicago on a busy crosswalk, I accidentally walked into Mel Gibson...went like this...*big crash* "oh I'm sorry bout that, my bad...*I look up*...Mel Gibson??..." He laughs at my confusion, says "no big deal"..*shakes hand*. not much of a meeting...

    Also, had to help some friends carry out Eminem when he was wasted at a party in Detroit.

    Met Flava-Flav too...before his recent resurgence into Pop-culture.

    Lots of bands/dj's...I work in a club.

    Gene Simmons from Kiss. It was 1986 and me and a friend got backstage passes handed to us. We went back but Gene was the only one we were able to meet and that was only because he wanted to have sex with us. I didn't but I think my friend did him an oral favor if memory serves me correctly. But that was long ago and I was drunk but I do know we met him because I have pictures to prove it.

    I never met anyone famous, but was on an airplane last year with Colin Farrel. That's about it. I have seen famous go by at airports and restaurants, but I am too shy and respectful to ever say "boo", never mind hello.

    Cheers,

    Jeff Gordon, Joe Gibbs, Bobby LaBonte at Nascar vip meet and greets. The Beach Boys in the 60's. Several politicians including John Danforth and John Ashcroft (a total jerk.)

    The man who discovered/pioneered Genetic fingerprinting used to give me a lift to school occassionally, Proffessor Sir Alex Jeffreys. He may not be celebrity-famous but he'll probably get his name in the history books, thats good enough for me. The first man that was ever caught using the genetic fingerprinting method lived a few doors away from my aunty too, didn't actually know him though which was all very well seeing as he was a serial murderer.

    Clint Eastwood here. I work for a helicopter company and he owns one. He visits our facility every couple of years to renew his training. He's a cool guy.

    Don't know if they are celebrity status, but my husband and I have hung out with the band Guster. They rule.

     
  • At 12:14 PM, Blogger Mind Sprite said…

    Oh yeah, I met Dale Earnhart on his birthday just days before he won at Daytona. I had forgotten about it since I've blocked Nascar from my memory since I got rid of my ex husband.

    Peter Mayhew, aka Chewbacca!

    Do I win something now? A t-shirt?

     
  • At 12:24 PM, Blogger Sublime said…

    Yes Forky, you win a t-shirt that says, "Skywalker Ranch"...lol.

    This is sort of scandalous, but I was sort of cozy with Jack Nicholson for a month or so back in the 80s, and met Michael Douglas then, too. I also went on two dates with Adam Ant (I don't know if that's as good as Simon LeBon, though) and one with Steven Segal.

    Good times, man. Good times.

     
  • At 12:40 AM, Blogger Elizabeth Taylor said…

    Howard Dean, Patrick Ewing, Chris Kattan, Tucker Carlson...that's it! I don't know who is the most famous among them - they're all famous for different things!

    I had lunch with Bruce Willis and went Clubbing with Ashton Kutcher, and a lot of other people when i was doing TV and Movies in Hollywood.

    I haven't met anyone famous. I feel so...deeply saddened by this. Wait....wait..I shook hands with that robot guy at Epcot Center at Disneyworld. Yep, he'd probably be the winner.

    OHHHH I did have lunch right across from Salt-N-Pepa. I was with my dad in Houston at a seafood joint. He was a massive fan of theirs at the time. When they went to the restroom my dad begged me to go in there after them to ask for an autograph, but I refused because I didn't want to be one of those creepy fans. That's really my only encounter with a "star".

    I met the lady who designed the sheep's sweater in Wallace & Gromit, "A Close Shave."

    My high school madrigal group sang happy birthday to Dizzie Gillespie before a concert. Our director was a huge fan and wrote a special birthday song just for him. At the time, I had no idea who Dizzy was! I didn't realize he was a music legend until years later.

    President Reagan when he was campaigning before his LANDSLIDE butt-whoopin' of "Fritz" Mondale.
