    Doesn't have to be music related.

    Use your own definitions of "most famous"

    Go!

    These questions are so frustrating to those of us who are famous...

    Cut in front of Buzz Aldrin at airport security in South Dakota summer before last. When I recognized him, I was mortified.

    The woman he was traveling with said "It's okay, he's used to coming second."

    A lot of "music" people.

    The most famous, overall though? Probably Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys.

    I worked at Tom Barnard's house (KQRS Radio)

    Met Larry "The Axe" Henning.

    Met R.T. Ryback (past Minneapolis Mayor) on a flight from Seattle to Minneapolis.

    I'm stretching here!

    I forgot to include my own.

    It'd be a toss up between Brian May of Queen, or THE Queen.

    REALLY!!! Larry the "Ax" Henning! Cool!! I met Mad Dog Vachon. One of my childhood favorites, he and The Crusher. I never did get to meet him.

    I've met a lot of famous people but Mad Dog is in my top three. Up there with John Entwhistle and Johnny Cash. Oh make that the top five. I met Casey Jones and Roundhouse Rodney.

    I've attended TIFF since 2013 so I've met quite a few. And the list of personal friends is quite long. Pretty hard to not meet famous people when you're famous, LOL

    I worked in the music industry for over ten years doing lighting at some of the biggest venues on the East Coast. I attend the NAMM show most years. And, when I was younger, I played high-level amateur hockey and often scrimmaged with members of the New York Rangers, including a couple of now-Hall of Famers.

    Who was the *most* famous? I have no freakin' idea.

    In the early 80s I was very young and my dad used to do vintage racing (SVRA). We would all go as a family and one year John Oates almost ran us over with his moped in the pit area. He apologized and chatted with us. I was like 2, but technically met him. Can't remember the track, Mid-Ohio or Watkins Glen, something like that.
