Nope... I don't know chit.

Way back in the 80's my sister shared an elevator with Michael J. Fox... I wonder if she still has the picture...

I used to camp with a guy who went to HS and partied with Chris Spielman... Dude was some sort of party machine in HS I guess...

I think that's all I got...

Chit... I sorta have more...

One of my old buddies... Bass player in a couple bands I was in to be precise... he used to work at a comedy club here in town (Funny Bone)... He hung out with all the cool ones... said Dave Attell and Dave Chappelle were the coolest...

I almost got to meet Dave Attell, when he was in town for Insomniac... A girl I worked with was on the production team... basically drove him around in a van all night... I caught up with them too late though as DA had already gotten chitfaced and passed out...

I watched a young peyton manning get sacked by my cousin and take a beating by my cousins high school team while talking to Archie Manning.

Given my cousin's team went on to win the state champ, so it's not like he lost to a low caliber team.

I've met various famous people in New Orleans as well. Got to see Dolly Parton's huge boobs in person at Dollywood one time.

Don't know any famous people personally though.

I went to junior high with Taylor Hawkins (drummer for Foo Fighters). I've still got all my yearbooks, etc... he looks exactly the same as he did then, except the beard.

Ummm... CeCe DeVille of Poison used to hang out at the under 21 club we all used to go to in SoCal in the mid 80's (perv!)

And Roz from (80's deathrock band) Christian Death used to hang out at that same club.

And running around Melrose in the late 80's, we'd always run into various celebs, but never *knew* them really.

Sooooo... no one exciting...

I met Chuck Yeager. I was actually given the detail as his personal driver for the 50th Air Force Anniversary Air Show out at Nellis AFB. He's a cool guy but he hates people asking for his autograph. He'd sign his autograph and we'd drive off and he'd be cussing about how ignorant people were for wanting another persons signiture... I dont think he considered himself a celebrity. I also got to launch him out in his P51 Mustang... very cool.

Incase any of you don't know who Chuck yeager is- he was the first man to go supersonic.

This makes me like him that much more, I dislike the whole autograph sh*t as well.

I met his son Steve Yeager (Catcher for the LA Dogers in the 70's and early 80's) I've also met tons of other LA Dogers, and thier announcer Vin Scully.

I hung out with Mario Andretti for an afternoon when I was working a race once. I know a guy named Torian Wilkins, used to live next door to me and we would chill together a lot. He plays for Arkansas right now but is a pick for heading to the NFL. So he WILL be famous lol does that count?
