Hooray!! I made it!
Back in December 1995 I ran into Joe Satriani and his band (with Stu Hamm) at the Guinness Brewery in Dublin (I'd seen their show live the night before, so it was doubly cool). There was nobody else there that day, so my buddy and I spent about 2 hours just hanging out with the guys- talking about all kinds of things and drinking Guinness. It was definitely a highlight of my guitar lifetime- they were all amazingly cool people and fun to talk to. I've met Joe at shows a few times since and he's always been super cool.
Later that month, we ran into Robert Plant outside a small little pub in London, just hanging out and smoking a cigarette. I guess the music gods were shining on us that month.
I did a gig with her in British Coumbia, 15-odd years ago.
Very nice, talented and classy lady.
We rehearsed a little, and the show went off without a hitch!
I have opened for lots of great acts over the eons, but never really rubbed shoulders with them.
I've been a sideman to a few successful artists, but usually as a sub.
I'm a lucky old guitar player!
I met Shirley Jones a few years back .
My mom met her when she was in diapers . She babysat her .
She's a classy lady and she can still bring it . Great set of pipes .
In music Pat Metheny, and I was a Dave Weckl student when I was a drummer .. a looong time ago,
Besides those a bunch of not so well known italian actors and actresses, and some known directors, cinematographers and so on which I've worked with
on the musical side the guys were great, in the other field i really was not impressed that much.
Come to think of it...
This past Sunday, I met Dawn Wells at the Chiller Theater Horror Convention. Considering the whole "Ginger or Mary Ann?" thing, she just might be the most famous of all!
Oh, and she still looks amazing, by the way!
you met Zoot Horn Rollo! guitar player in one of the coolest bands ever on earth. tell about it, please?
Oh man! You know her too? I tried many times to ask Delete on a date, and she deleted me every time. Now I know how she got her name.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Edward Norton Jr., Greg LeMond, Bobby Julich (American racing cyclist, Tour De France, I actually raced him many times), Joe Montana, Hillary Clinton, numerous senators and congressional members (I used to meet and testify up on Capitol Hill a fair bit). Coolest was hanging out for a whole weekend with the first two bonafide movie stars. Both are very cool, actually. Edward Norton went to Yale, speaks Chinese, is an accomplished pilot, avid SCUBA diver, and does a whole lot for the environment, too. Leo had recently shot Blood Diamond and was buffed out. He was way taller than I expected, probably about 5'10" or maybe a little taller.
Yeah she cold!
I met PM, too.
I was a precocious 17 year old in 1974.
I went to the Armadillo World Headquarters after school to try and sell him an Epiphone Riviera 12 string.
He kindly declined, and was nice to me.
I just walked in the side stage door while they were sound checking.
She was hot right up until she pressed the....delete!
Probably Richard Thompson. Had seen him in a small club in Berkely, later in a larger venue, then ran into him in "Richard's", a coffee shop when he did a show in Colorado Springs. Still one of my favorites!
Only famous people I've ever met:
Dennis Weaver - filming in the Philippines
David Bromberg - playing for Up With People in Philippines
Lance Wakely - played with Bromberg
Harry Kalas - signing autographs for fans in Allentown PA
Steve Carlton - with Harry
Kevin Saucier - with Harry and Lefty
Steve Wariner - went on his bus in Hellertown PA
Pat DiNizio - gave him a clove cigarette for the song "Cigarette" at Smithereens concert at Zodiac in Allentown - he yelled at me, "Who the f smokes clove cigarettes?" (BTW, I quit over 20 years ago.) I actually met all the guys in the Smithereens. All really nice guys.
James Taylor, backstage a couple of times, and John Belushi, after I cooked his rack of lamb dinner in the late 70's. No, he didn't have Jello for dessert.
Sonny and Bobby Osborne.Played a show with them at Mountaineer Opry House in Milton,WV...and also the late John Hartford,a couple years,before he passed.
My all-time favorite athlete, my boyhood hero - Walter Payton. I met him about two years before he became ill, he looked great when I met him. He looked like he still could have played football.
My wife and I were at his restaurant in Aurora, IL and he was there just talking casually with the guests. My wife convinced me to go up to talk to him so we went together. He was incredibly gracious. I shook his hand, we talked for a few minutes and he gave my wife a big hug before when we were done talking. I will never forget that moment.
Sadly, yesterday was the 17th anniversary of his passing.
