I met Steve Vai, he's a guitar player who's pretty famous for playing with David Lee Roth and playing his own style. He was also in a movie. Whom ever you met, it would neat to hear about it. Got any pics? See mine below.

I haven't met too many famous people. I did meet Mato Nanji, the lead guitarist and vocalist for the band Indigenous, actually I've met them all. I also went to high school with Tommy "the duke" Morrison, an ex heavyweight boxer. He was also in Rocky IV...Don't have any pics. I don't even have my yearbook anymore...lol.

Also...I haven't met him before but Garth Brook's lives in a town not far from where I live here in Oklahoma. My cousin is a cook at this restaurant and Garth comes in there all the time, and he says my cousin is his favorite chef....I thought that was neat.

I looked up Indigenous, never heard of them, but I'll check them out. Its too bad about Morrison, he did have a good comeback bout with Matt Weishaar though.

Ive actually met a couple people. When i was about 7 years old, my family went on a vacation to Maine, where me and my sister made up a lemonade stand. we wound up selling lemonade to Will Smith, and Jada Pinket. A couple years after that, we were coming home from West Virginia on a family visiting escapade.. and we stopped in some random town to use the bathrooms, when whos walking back to his car but.. Steven King. (hes very creepy looking) then, about 3 years ago, we were in New Haven for my cousin Julie's Yale Graduation, and we had been scheduled to eat at a certain resteraunt. we didnt really know our way aroudn so we stumbled into the wrong resteraunt. this resteraunt was actually baught out for dinner by david caruso(from CSI) for his family because his daughter was graduating with my cousin. of course my crazy aunt had to run up and get an autograph! Oh goodness!

Sure have. Michael Jordan rode in my horse and carriage in Chicago once and I met the Oak Ridge Boys when they were performing at the Four Seasons hotel in Chicago. I was actually invited onto their tour bus. Still have their personally autographed pic as well. I met Oprah as well. She really is a kind and caring lady. I just missed meeting Barbra Mandrell as well.

True but also missed Aerosmith and a bunch of others because I wasn't working when they were around. Guess that's what happens when you take a day off.

I met Gordan Ramsay recently as he came to the marine camp where I work and the put him through his paces whilst also filming for his F Word series. I used to live near a lot of stars in Webridge in Surrey so have also met Sir Cliff Richard, Su Barker, Sir Bob Geldolf to name a few. They are all people at the end of the day. I also know two of Jon Claud Van Damme wives, Darcy and Susanne. Ellie :D

I wonder if Gordon yelled at any marines? He's intense, I hope he can keep the three Michelin stars he's been awarded. You've met musicians, actors, who next on your list?

I met The Rolling Stones. I won a contest by creating the best banner. Got front-row seats to their concert, too! I have a picture of me with them in my profile pictures. I'm the short one on the right. LOL My hair was shorter then. Actually, my hair is much longer than my profile pic. That was taken about 4 years ago. Guess I should update it, huh?

Very cool! To update the pic you'll need to see The Rolling Stones again, right?

Yes, and I'd love to meet them again and be able to spend some time with them. Well, at the very least, Ron Wood and Charlie Watts. Those two guys were so very nice!

Steve Vai huh! Great guitarist! Where I used to work we always had musicians coming in. Nobody I really cared about just people like Paul Young, Stryper, Jane Weidlin of the Go Gos, and Rico Suave. But one time I went to see the band Garbage and me and my friend had backstage passes. So we went backstage and saw the band and after talking to Shirley Manson for a while Duke the guitarist asked me if we wanted to hang out so we all went to a bar next door and their record company picked up the tab. That was pretty cool. I think Shirley liked me, but I had a gf whom I'm not with anymore mores the pity.

Glad to know a couple of people know who Vai is, Paul Young is cool, I love Stryper, the Go Go's were cool in their time. Jane does a lot of stuff now with commericals. Rico Suave, he had a couple of hits, cool. Shirley is pretty cute, call her up!

I have yet to have an encounter with anyone famous. Maybe I will someday, but I think that it is highly unlikely.
