I count booksignings as a meeting, I've been to a bunch of those

Bruce Springsteen
Larry Bird
Magic Johnson
President Clinton
President Carter
Rudy Giuliani
Hillary Clinton
Curt Schilling
Johnny Damon
Ted Williams
Dorothy Hamill the figure skater
Brendan Fraser when he was making a movie near me years ago

I think that's it-I've seen a few famous people from near/afar, but I didn't meet them

Same here... we had dinner together in a NY restaurant (obviously by chance) and she was incredibly nice... I posted details in another thread.

But she also said "hello, my name is Gwyneth"

Don Henley - not much personality
Ted Kennedy - grumpy old man
Neil Diamond - very polite and pleasant
Lou Gramm of Foreigner - nice as could be!
Ozzy Ozzborne - also polite, but he was very ill at the time
Bette Midler - nice, down to earth and very funny!
Joan Rivers - believe it or not, a real sweetheart
Keith Urban - (country singer) shy and a lot shorter than he looks on tv.
Paul Rodgers of Bad Company - very nice, respectful and talkative.
Ted Nugent - flirty and very full of himself
Steven Tyler - damn sexy!

i knew i was forgetting someone worth mentioning when i kept bitching that i hadn't met anyone worthwhile. then it dawned on me.

he signed his two cookbooks for me, and i got a pic. he also answered a couple questions i asked him (he was there for a book signing/q+a).

my parents own the coop apartment that steve tyler from aerosmith grew up in..he came to my house a couple of years ago and we hung out with him for 2 hours while he reminisced about his childhood....he mentioned my family on the z100 radio show and on oprah winfrey....my whole family is on their vip list and ive seen them live for free and had backstage passes and everything. the agent even told me my family has the max amount of stars next to our name to show our priority when calling up for ticks... thats me on steven tylers left and my twin brother on steven tylers right. ive also met jerry orbach, rod gilbert ( famous rangers hockey hall of famer)..and my brother met clyde frazier and vanilla ice believe it or not.

sorry if this pic is blurry..it was first taken with a polaroid camera and then scanned and resized to fit the sites limit.
