For some reason, I've met a lot. A couple favorites: Hunter S Thompson, I got to hang out in his dressing room after an appearance. He is just as intense and jittery as you might imagine. Friendly, though. I was at the Night Stage blues club in Cambridge MA, back in the '80s; I can't remember the band, but I noticed the guy standing next to me, a short fellow with curly hair and a sort of fedora hat. It was the comedian Steven Wright, who, it turns out, went to community college in Bedford, MA, the town I lived in at the time. We spoke a little, but he was really loaded and couldn't really focus. I was hoping for one of his jokes, but I think he had his hands full just holding the wall up. Cool to meet him, though.
