May or may not have been turbo,maybe was, but it was modified. Again, been a while.
I’ve met a few famous media people and politicians who are mostly just regular folk one on one - the only time I’ve ever been genuinely star struck though was meeting Douglas Adams at drinks after a talk he gave at our university. I adored and still do the Hitchhikers guide and Dirk Gently...
How did you end up seeing Eddie's ride lol?
Here’s my list in
no particular order:
George h w Bush
Dick Van Patten
William F Buckley
I grew up on Provo, UT.
Redford’s Sundance Resort was close by and lots of film people hung out there. I also saw Sydney Pollack and Mary Tyler Moore there.
Osmond’s studios were also close and they did the Donny and Marie show there so seeing celebs around town wasn’t unusual.
Steve Young was doing an appearance so I bought a football and had him sign it for my MIL.
He said he hoped he had a mil like mine some day.
I was at the 1999 Ryder at Brookline and G H W Bush was walking along the ropes shaking hands. As he shook mine I said,”I hope your son wins this one.” He chuckled and said, “ me too!”
I was a student at BYU and Gerald Ford was on campus taking a tour so our art class met him and shook his hand.
I talked to Tiger when he was playing for Stanford in a tourney in Provo. The head pro told me Tiger tried to buy a six pack at the course but was rejected.
Derek Parra worked at The Home Depot while he was training for the Olympics here.
I played golf with Bill “ Rolling Thunder” Devane, we were playing through another group and they asked me who he was.
Out of all of those my fav is Christian Slater lmao. How did u meet him?
Well... the studio doors were open not too far from the set. We were making small talk during a break, and I could see a blue vette sitting right outside where only someone who was someone like EVH parks, if you know what I mean. Anyway after the shoot, which was interesting in its own way, he got into the drivers side.
I assume it was his lol.
Wow. That is impressive especially considering that I sometimes don't want to leave my home to get the mail. All jokes aside, tell me you gave Rodney Dangerfield some respect!!
Did it look something like this?
I guess your speaking of entertainer types...
Met a lot of guys motocross, round track and Drag racing...
In the pits
Bench racing at shops n speed shop...
Never thought of them as celebrities...
Oddly yes, but again, it's been a few decades.
It takes a lot of balls to have a less Paul pic on a strat forum
One thing I like about strat talk is how inclusive we are!
Full disclosure: I have owned two wonderful American Strats (back when they were called that), but did not bind with them. I have not given up hope though, and am shopping for and S type. Also I have a Bronco Bass, so they let me in on that regard.
He was in Salt Lake filming a movie. This was about five years ago. We got in the elevator at the Grand America Hotel at the same time.
Nice guy, I told him I liked his movies.
Circa 2011 at Antone's in Austin. Very cool guy and great performer. Seen a lot of others, but didn't really meet them. Face to face with Buddy Guy and Chuck Berry while they played during a show, which was cool.
I met Sandra Bullock once but I’m under NDA...
Other than that all the people I know/have met are music people rather than A-listers, mainly from the 70s when I was in the scene - Dire Straits, Squeeze, Tom Robinson, Sham 69, John Cooper Clarke, Thunder, Aswad, etc. We all used to drink in the same pubs, play the same venues etc. We often had football games on Blackheath outside the Princess of Wales on sunny Sundays...
And then there was the ‘creative’ lot - Kate Bush, Adam Ant, Steve Strange. My wife knew Boy George’s brother very well.
Bumped into Ian Gillan in a lift in Frankfurt in the 80's - nice chap. My boss at the time decorated his house in the UK.
Met Jimmie Vaughan at a Billy Bremner gig in Camden. We had a brief chat & it turns out that they were in London recording a T-Birds album produced by Dave Edmunds.
I found myself standing next to Robert Plant at an Otis Rush gig in London. I had no wish to talk to him, but I managed to fight the urge to nudge him & say
"See? That's what "I Can't Quit You Baby" is supposed to sound like".
Yes, a long list. I played music with a lot them too. I won't list them all here but I will tell you:
Smoked weed with Willie
