I've met him a couple of times as well (and saw him get attacked by a wild animal!! ).

I met way too many senators, representatives, and miscellaneous other politicians when I worked on the Hill, including Dick Cheney , Bob Dole (I have a picture with him where he looks disturbingly like a cardboard cutout and jkayet and I once literally bumped into him immediately after meeting Bono), Strom Thurmond, everyone even remotely connected with Kentucky politics...probably the Republican equivalent of U2Democrat's list. Also met Bono (twice), the woman who plays the wife on Everybody Loves Raymond, Jack Hanna, and Buzz Aldrin while working there...no one very memorable apart from Bono!

I've met quite a few bands as well, but no overly massive ones.

Add me to the I've Met Newt list Who knew! Someone also mentioned Dan Quayle and I met him too years ago when I worked in publishing. I wanted so very much to make fun of him everyday but he was so damn nice it was ridiculous.

Silly me, the grossest oversight of all, I MET DIAMOND. The man can dress, even in a GA line.

Sure, anytime.

But I don’t live in that apartment anymore. This was in my previous life as a New Yorker.

I should say I lived above him for a year. We moved in at the same time but I moved out before he did.

I do have some great stories but I don’t want to hijack this thread. Suffice it to say he was an absolute doll, soft-spoken and shy but could also be charming and flirty, who drove me crazy with Led Zeppelin marathons in the middle of the night necessitating many a neighborly chat about noise and boundaries. But to balance out the noise, I was often treated to overhearing his afternoon voice lessons through the floorboards and he always left post cards announcing his shows on my door. I wish I’d gone to more of them and I wish I hadn’t asked him to turn it down so often but I was just a struggling workin’ gal who needed to sleep. I adored him.

Well, I'm glad you posted -- 'cause that means I can post too, since my famous people aren't all that famous to most people, but they are to me.

I never have really gone out of my way to meet famous people (too shy) and it's not likely that many would find themselves in my little out of the way area.

I've said at least hi to all of the members of The Church -- ok, so I just nodded at Peter Koppes, but he just kinda freaked me out...don't quite know why. Got an autograph from Marty Willson-Piper after a show in Minneapolis. He asked my name to sign and when I told him he mentioned that he almost named his daughter that, so I asked him what he chose instead (I've forgotten what he said now) and I told him that was a decent name too. He was sucking up the attention that night (he'd had a great show that night and was feeling great). Can be very charming when he wants to be.

Met Steve Kilbey a few times in person within several days, the longest one being after a show in Milwaukee last spring. MWP had been an absolute shit on stage and walked off -- and left the venue -- during the last song of the main set, so I was very surprised SK waved me backstage. Now I'd spoken to him a couple of days earlier for a minute or so, so he knew who I was and we'd also chatted online extensively in the months prior to the tour. But he was in a great mood and really quite chatty -- we mostly talked about is fledgling career in art (I'd purchased several paintings of his and given him lots of encouragement during the online chats). My favorite comment came when he was saying why he liked doing portraits so much, "It's like when you're watcing porno...you still want to see the faces." OK Steve. Overall, he was really kind and quite funny -- he likes to tell really bad jokes...they're funny, just bad.

Since then I've purchased several more of his paintings, including the cover artwork he did for the band's last two albums (they've been putting out a load of material), and kept up an email correspondence with SK. He even sent his condolances when my mom died which was incredibly sweet. And now I am working with/for him promoting his art to a wider audience (as opposed to just fans of his music).
