The poet Allen Ginsberg (good friend of my communal family). He died some years ago, though.

Define "famous." The guy painted on the Alaska Airlines plane is my great-uncle.

Notbuet, but I hear that shazam is killer at karaoke, so I'm waiting for him to hit it big. 😆

I wish I could remember, but I was about 4 or 5 the last time we saw them, as they moved away. I don't remember much (anything) other than a picture I had with him. I can ask my mother about it when she gets back from her medical conference on Sunday

That's interesting! I've met one other person who knew him quite well, independent of all my other friends who knew him. This guy was his personal assistant for a while. I met him on Twitter & visited him once when I was in the city where he lives,
