I know lots of people on TAM have connections to the music industries...How many real celebrities have you met in any field.....

My list is pretty short...I met James Smith McDinnell, founder of Mcdonnell aircraft, now Boeing.....when I worked there....

Met Phillip Sweet, singer in the Group "Little Big Town" When his father came to our house....I had Known his dad for years..Phillip played keyboard and sang for my wife...She was in L O V E...At the 55th Grammy Awards, their song "Pontoon" won the Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance....

Ran into Mike Huckabee at the Hope watermellon festival...Arkansas governor, Presidential candidate, and talk show host on FOX

Parker Wheatly....Founding member of WGBH Boston...Had a talk show in St Louis......I wrote him a letter and was invited on his show.....People actually recognised me for years after that show....

Literally bumped into Newt Gingrich in Washington. Had breakfast in the same restaurant with Dennis Hastert several times. Having been in radio some years ago I met (and worked for) quite a few Chicago radio personalities.

Re: celebrities you have met....

I have never met a celebrity in my life.

maybe weird, but I never cared to. just theink of them as another person who does a job...and I would not bother them outside of work.

The only celeb that I've actually met, sat next to and gave him a hug (yes I was on my way to being drunk) was Michael Jordan.

No, he's still alive. When Death knocked on his door, Norris shoved his scythe up Death's ass and sent him down the road.

Re: celebrities you have met....

Thinking about it, I actually have met many. I used to be a flight attendant and I also had a short lived work experience in music. I still have a friend who is well known in music and so I sometimes see him and his friends. I haven't met anyone who I considered "over the top" or so glamorous that everyone would just go "WOW!" though. No Chuck Norris.

Frank Sinatra. He was gracious, a gentleman and kind. My then boyfriend, now husband and I talked with him for about an hour. I have always loved his music and his talent. We were only 20 at the time and he loved that the "younger" generation still appreciated his music. Nobody will ever compare.

Debbie Harry and her boyfriend back in the 1980s.

I interviewed Tony Blair and met his wife. Although his wife is not photogenic, in real life she is very attractive.

Craig Biggio used to go to the same salon I did and had the stylist next to mine. He was without a doubt the biggest asswipe I have ever met. He would scream that she didn't do a good enough job, tip her nothing and tried to get out of paying for his $60 haircut and $100 highlights, yet he would return to her over and over. I sat next to him 4 times and each he was so intolerable I asked to be moved.

The last time he was there, he grabbed her breasts and called her a wh@re. Me being me, told him to f@ck off and to leave her alone. He got up, yelled that this salon sucked and left without paying. His wife also got her hair done there and both were banned forever. You have to be a special sort of ass hole to come off the World Series and be banned by a business and Biggio was just that kind of butthole.

I laughed when I heard ESPN talk about nobody making it in to the Hall of Fame and those morons chirping about "What about Biggio?! He's awesome, a nice guy, great athlete and cares about people". Yeah, right. He juiced too. Anybody who treats a hair cutter and staff the way he did would think nothing of cheating to get a head. Nothing.
