Now that I have more followers, I will ask again. Have you ever met a person who once was/is famous? If so, who?
I spent 2 hours with Mitt Romney and his team in Boston last month.
Buddy Rich, Stubby Kaye, Alan Jones, Jerome Hines, Joseph Sobran, Cynthia Clawson, Annie Herring, Matthew Ward, Clark Terry, Jamey Aebersold, Phil Driscoll, Gary Chapman.
I worked for Reggie Jackson for a year or so back in the late 80's in Oakland. He owned a Chevy dealership where I ran the finance department.
Richard Nixon in 1972. Of course, I was only nine years old and really only said hello and shook his hand.
Mr t , David Grohl, Christopher judge.
Wayne Cochran from CC Rider
David Henrie (wizards of Waverley Place, Grown Ups 2, etc.), Reed Deming (X Factor USA season 2), and a few athletes
Does Herb Chambers count?
Too many to mention but the most iconic was Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol. Last celebrity I met was Adam Sandler this summer getting Starbucks.
I love Adam sandler!
I love Yoko Ono!
Several when I worked at Space Camp: Kris Krisopherson; Chelsea Clinton (when her dad was POTUS); Jay R. Ferguson; Kevin Bacon; David Graf (Tackleberry); some others who's names I can't recall.
I have also attended personal appearances or met Alfonso Ribeiro, John Stamos, Elizabeth Dole, & James Earl Jones.
I think that's everyone.
Case Keenum at FCA camp in 2007 he was at UH
Andrew Luck at Houston's Touchdown Club ceremony while he was still in high school in Stratford
The dwarf that said "The wicked witch is dead." On the Wizard of Oz.
I sat next to one of the lollipop kids on a flight and was trippin the whole way.
John Boehner, Michelle Obama, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, and Ron Paul.
I knew you were becoming liberal! Michelle Obama!
I worked on his campaign for the Virginia senate race.
I love Oli North!
Joe Nichols. I know who he is. Very beautiful though I don't listen to his music because I don't like country. I met him twice when I worked at Jason's Deli. He loves salads and drives a BMW:)
teacher Ram Dass (Richard Alpert), and a bunch of others whose names I can't dredge up right now.
Oops, sorry fluff... that was intended as a reply below; that's a booboo I haven't made for quite a while.
People famous in my world, maybe not so much in others'... Jane Goodall, briefly (although she was kind enough to write me a letter once). The 1958 Nobel Prize awardee (in Physiology or Medicine) Joshua Lederberg was a member of my professional
society, as were a number of scientists whose names are in college biology textbooks but whom everyone forgets when the class is over. Eula Bingham, national head of OSHA under Carter, was my very first boss, when she was a young researcher.
The beat poet Allen Ginsberg was a friend of my communal family & visited us on trips to San Francisco. Other communal friends or visitors were the actor/narrator Peter Coyote, the poet Philip Whalen, the author Richard Brautigan, the spiritual
Jane Goodall is rad, and Lucky you meeting Ram Dass :-)
I honestly don't remember much of what Ram Dass said... I just remember him hanging around the house for the better part of a day, talking with one of our older members mostly. And this may sound odd... especially from a totally non-spiritual person
such as myself, but I remember him as being bathed in a pool of sunshine while they sat & talked. (In the foggy part of San Francisco we were in, sunshine is pretty rare in itself!)
Well that makes sense, if you were very spiritual you probably would have wanted to interact with him more?
Probably... hard to say. But I probably would have been too shy anyway. I was pretty shy around Ginsberg, & he was there a lot.
That's awesome! Wish I was there, it's great to be surrounded by minds like that.
Jane Seymour, and a few NHL players (current and retired).
Corey Koskie ex MN twins 3rd baseman. I installed his DirecTV
Paris Hilton, yes she's as ugly in person as she is on tv. Many bands. Bill Clinton.
I shook Nicolas cage's hand. Didn't exactly meet him though.
Admiral akbar (or at least the actor who played him), Gary gygax and lou ferigno
Did you ask him to say "it's a trap?" otherwise I think you wasted the meeting lol
Well, Bruce Campbell, but he's only famous to me and some others.
I envy you...
Easily one of the top 5 moments of my life. He goes to wizard world conventions, you should look it up.
Hmm, I'll have to check that out, I loved him I'm the evil dead movies.
Burn Notice, one of my favorite shows!
A few hockey players, but that's it.
