    Holy crap. I always thought I've led a shallow, meaningless life and this just proves it. Not nearly enough celebrities.

    Bruce, most of the celebs I met just happened through the job I have. And being here in California, celebs are coming out of the woodwork. No thing. All of the celebrity meetings I have had were simply accidents. Being in a certain place at a certain time, a pure chance gig. I am not as enamored with thesefolks as some people are, but they were interesting. My favorites were Dom Delouise, and Lee Van Cleef. Van Cleef is a very intelligent man, and interesting too. But they are just people.

    Hey, regarding Dom Delouise. I went to school with his kid, Peter Delouise, who I have to say was a fairly obnoxious individual. He was in 21 Jump Street.

    David Schwimmer was just a normal, dorky eigth grader.

    Ooh boy name dropping! Bet nobody knows any of these people:

    person- band
    Quorthon (rip)- Bathory
    Ronnie James Dio- DIO/B. Sabbath
    David Defeis-Virgin Steele
    Bill Lindsey-Impaler
    Lemmy and Mikkey Dee - Motorhead
    Jello Biafra - Dead Kennedys / Jello Biafra
    King Diamond - King Diamond/Mercyful Fate
    the whole band of ABSU (I wrote the symphonic intro music for their 1995 US tour used it as a hidden track on my CD later on. They got pulled over in the same spot everyone gets pulled over at when they leave minnesota right after burning one of their offerings...oops!)
    the whole band of Enslaved (I took these drunken norwegian vikings to the mall of america instead of making them do their soundcheck like they were supposed to)
    The bald ahole from Slayer, whoever he is! One of my writers was infatuated with him for some reason so I had to meet him too.
    Mikka from Impaled Nazarene
    Kai Hansen - Helloween / Gamma Ray
    The Great Kat! - (who remembers this metal chick! and her "Worship me or die!" LP? She's just as hot nowadays even more so!)
    Tom Angel Ripper - Sodom / Unkel Tom
    Udo Dirkshneider - U.D.O. / Accept
    the AC/DC midgets
    Nashville "Kitty" (not the real 2nd word - they were girls gone wild!)
    Sepultura (they smoke a lot of dope)
    Schmeir - Destruction
    Lizzy Borden - Lizzy Borden (I never got better photos than at this show the whole roll was golden but Battle Helm mag was only a B/W magazine! aaarrrgghh!)
    Rob Halford - Halford/Judas Priest (he gave me his belt! I don't know where I have it stored now tho)
    Dee Schneider - Twisted Sister
    all of Quiet Riot (and their hairpieces)
    Doro Pesch - Warlock / Doro (she was truely as beautiful as she was when I was 12 years old - though she was only about as tall as I was when I was 12-she's small!)
    THOR! -from rock band Thor and several campy 80s horror flicks.
    There's a lot more cos I've been interviewing bands for almost 15 years!

    Non bands would be these old fart wrestlers:
    Rock n Roll Buck Zumhoff (met him pumping gas with the too-young girl which later got him jailed!)
    Hulk Hogan & MR T. he was a wrestler with Hulk for a shot time in the 80's
    Rowdy Roddy Piper (my aunt knew this guy somehow he gave me a tee shirt with an iron on tranffer that peeled off the first time I washed it!)
    Jerry Blackwell
    George the Animal (he was my english teachers next door neighbor she broght him in to school for some reason a funny fellow)

    Sheik Adnon Al Casey (He had a habit of roaming his house and outdoor property without his pants on! My aunts fireman scanner picked up police radio and they were always being called to his house in eden prarie for indecent exposure! I was about 10 years old and was using the bathroom at the highschool where they taped the saturday morning WWF matches on tuesday nites. When I came out to wash my hands he was taping his cast onto his "broken arm". I said "hey you're supposed to keep a cast on all the time aren't you!?" he just said "shhh" and finished tying up and then went off to wrestle with his "broken arm!" [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] )
    mean gene wilder (the ring announcer, I met him outside the bathroom where I had just seen the sheik tying on the cast I told him "his arm isn't really broken!")

    Vern Gonyea was arrested by my best friends dad for drunken driving. He came over one day when I was at Matt's house and gave us all tee shirts and posters and stuff but we had to give it back cos his dad said it was a bribe to try and get him to somehow erase the DWI charges.

    After meeting all these people and those to come it really comes down to they're just people some are good some are turds. In the end their talent we respect, not the person cos sometimes those people aren't respectful. Luckilly 90% have been genuinely great folks but maybe that's cos most of the time I have a press pass and camera (if allowed)...!
