Already posted, I know, but famous people.....

BEFORE anyone says a danged thing about my re-posting this topic: I tried to reply, but webtv kicked me off each time.

So, my list of famous people whom I've met or spoken with:

Carol Burnett (love her)
Bill Clinton (sang at his 2nd gubernatorial inauguration, he played saxophone with us at an ASU game once, and saw him at an Anita Baker show once, plus I'm told I'm related. yuck)

Bono--I was gonna be so cool, but completely lost gray matter upon meeting him. He was very polite.

Adam Clayton--very kind guy.

Adam Duritz of Counting Crows--kinda moody, but, aren't we all?

Harry Connick, Jr.

Wynton Marsalis--the nicest 'celebrity' I've met. Very cool, and my brother kinda-sorta knows him.

Bill Mallonnee---who??

Michael English--who??

B.B. King
Rufus Thomas
Bill Wyman from the Rolling Stones (made him laugh!)

Eric Singer from KISS

Cowboy Mouth
Harvey Jett from Black Oak Arkansas
Russ Taff--who?

Meadowlark Lemon

the guy who played Barney Miller

Oh yeah, and Daniel Lanois and Gavin Friday, who took a pic of Bono & me.
And Charlie Pride & McClean Stevens walked right by me as they had just walked out of my dormitory. (speaking engagement & celeb. golf)

E quell'amore non so pi aspettare

Of course! No, seriously, the cheap-arsed webtv is very funny sometime...if it's a 2-page thread, I can't reply without being knocked offline. I'm sure it's something that could be corrected.

Don't be too jealous. There's one more Irish person I'd loooove to meet...of course, Andrea Corr. That'll never happen. lol!

Bono - wonderfully polite, with a glint in his eyes you could see right through his shades

Edge - kinda quiet but very cute and a lovely warm smile

Tom Selleck (don't laugh, I met him during the height of his Magnum P.I. days and that's a thrilling thing for a 9 year old)

Muhammed Ali - most fly moment ever in a hotel lobby, what a gracious man! A gentle giant who is grateful for his fans.

The Sugarcubes minus Bjork - a bunch of happy Icelanders who were flirting with my friend. lol!

Spike Jonz - brief meeting, but cool. Very soft spoken, funny, and earnest.

Also met a few dj's, and starspotted many other celebs but never officially met them.

I'm green with envy! Well, not that she'd give me the time of day, but I'd love to live near her. I should've tried to meet her after the Miami show, as she did her little stage-flirting with me (I was right in front of her.) I mean....I'd pack-up & move to Ireland for her.
