Question Who are the famous people you've met?

Anne Rice
Darryl Hall
Some folks from a 60's revival tour; I don't remember their names @ the moment (I've got their autographs someplace...)
Ted DiBiase
Amanda Palmer
Brian Viglione
David Byrne
Lord Alfred Hayes
Lead singer of the group Gollum (forget his name @ the moment, too)

Two celebs whom I've got their autographs but never actually met them:
Yoko Ono (hers was personalized to me, which was way cool; I'll tell the story sometime)
Rick Ocasek (from when he was filming a video in NYC many moons ago; a kind roadie/video crew person got his & the model's signatures for me)

I've gotten into arguments w/wrasslers @ a house show, which was fun. I know there are others, but I'll most likely remember them @ 3am...

Geez, I ain't hardly ever met anyone.
Well, long ago, there was Alan King. Yep, related to Martin Jr., and yes, in second grade we got into a racial fight with others. I was the one on his side. Weird, huh? But an achievement I'll never forget.
Then there was this time I was a private courier, and had to take an envelope to Burke Lakefront Airport to met a private jet with Elvis Presley in it. All i got to see was a big goon in a suit, so I said, "It has to be signed for personally." He said, "Bullshit !". So I backed off coz I was lying , and missed meeting the King, by that much.

I love Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

I once stood right behind Kim Bassinger when I was doing extra work. It was a scene in a Starbucks, and I was behind her in line. I was not allowed to make eye contact with her. It was interesting. She is not really any taller than I am, and very, very pretty.

the island I lived on was seething with off-duty celebs, but I never met any of them.

I once saw Heather Graham in a local restaurant. she wasn't wearing makeup, and looked a bit tired. my cousin rented a boat to Michael J. Fox. she said he was really nice.

I met a fugitive former international hash dealer on the run from INTERPOL - does that count?

I was an extra in a movie with Gerard Depardieu, but I never met him. I got paid $75/day to pretend to drink fake beer, though.

I walked past Matt Parkinson (who appears but perhaps quite wisely doesn't speak in the clip below) in the street yesterday.

MY husband is related to Sonny Bono, but I never met him in person.
My best friend's grandpa went to the same school and class as Kissinger.
My dad went to school with Brian Dennehy.

I walked around the Biltmore House with Jack Klugman once.
I met Billy Taylor at a jazz festival.
I ate dinner with Dizzy Gillespie and Freddy Hubbard after the same jazz festival. It was at a friends house, his mother cooked dinner for all the performers and they invited me. My friend and his mother, not the performers...

auntie, you're amazing!

I haven't had many celebrity encounters, except in the music world:

Yo-Yo Ma
Richard Stoltzman
Janine Jansen
Ok Go
They Might Be Giants
Billy Cobham
+ assorted quartets

Billy was amazingly friendly and gracious. He was co-hosting a television program on the festival with Steve Allen.
Dizzy and I didn't talk much as we were both pretty hungry, him from performing, me from not eating all day. I did talk to his wife outside while their chauffeur used his limo to jump start my car. Yes, you read that correctly.
Didn't talk to Freddy at all. He spent most of the dinner trying to score some cocaine.

You've met Janine Jansen? I have a major crush on her. She is the only person I can think of who makes Baroque Music sexy.
