    My friend who used to live in LA met a bunch of people. I haven't met anyone famous, really. I've met people who are famous in their fields, but the general public has no idea who they are so I don't get to brag. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    In my work as a sound tech we have had some real talent and got to work with many "stars". I got drunk with Gordon Lightfoot, hung out with Hot Tuna, jammed with lots of NAtional talent bands. I met Gracie Slick and JAck Cassidy (Jefferson Airplane) and was roundly tipped when I carried a bag to their car with the equal of my weeks wage where I worked. I went fishing with Rod Serling (Twilight Zone) and I caught twice as many. I had dinner with PAul Winter (Paul Winter Consort) and met the NAtional Poet Stanley Kunz. I even have talked to Dr. BArry Rice on the phone! I have shaken hands with BB King, Doc WAtson, Normal Blake, Tony Rice, Del McCourey hoping some of it would rub off.....

    Once, I rode on the Easter bunny. The REAL Easter bunny. I wasn't awake at the time though, but it counts!

    I will say this: the stars I met were all saints or eeeeeeediots, there was no inbetween, lol.

    My brother dated a certain "star" (that word being used very loosely) when they were both back in highschool... I am actually not proud of admitting to this one so no names will be mentioned. Lets just say that this particular woman is known only for certain physical endowments that are miricles of modern surgical techniques. I will also say her charms (if you are into that sort of thing) stop there!

    Oddly enough her parents who still live in my hometown are absolute sweethearts! I guess the apples can fall quite a ways from the tree afterall!

    Well, it all depends on how you define famous. I saw the Queen of England 4' away as she walked past, same with Princess Michael of Kent. I was friends with the late Rosemary Verey, noted British garden designer and author. Penelope Hobhouse. (same but still living) I once worked for one of the wealthest women in the world, Ann Cox Chambers. She and her sister are in Fortune 500's top wealthest people every year. I met Calvin Klien and sat next to Martha Stewart at a dinner party. I think that is it for now.

    I sat behind David Robinson and Sean Elliot in church once... but out of respect did not say hello or introduce myself. (I expect actions like that ran them out of many a church.)

    I've met Tamlin Dawnstar, Black Sabbath (Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, and Bill Ward), the late Jay Youngblood, Tommy Lee and the two women in the Same ol' Situation video, William Prescott, the guitarist from Fear Factor, and I talked to Tom Keifer from Cindarella on the phone.
    I think that covers it.

    I prepared dinner for Gore Vidal. The arrogance was astounding.
