Elliot Smith, but most of you probably don't know who he is so I guess I haven't really met anyone that famous.

Fun topic! lol Ok, I have met some, almost met some etc...
Some were a long time ago and some Canadian TV personalities you probably haven't heard of.

Hockey Players-

*Russ Courtnall- His brother works in my bldg. and I see him from time to time in the summer. Super nice people.
*Geoff Courtnall- Same as above, but I did happen to meet him at a nightclub in '94 a few weeks after they (The Canucks) made it to the Stanley Cup Finals... and I asked him to dance, lol!! But he said he didn't think his wife would appreciate that.

Actors-

*Drew Barrymore- well... kinda. Many years ago when she was dating the guy from 'Hole' I was at Lollapalooza at the Gorge in Washington and she was down hanging out backstage by the trailers and we yelled down to her and she yelled back up to us for a mo. Super sweet.
*MacGyver- lol! Richard Dean Anderson. David Foster used to have celebrity baseball games in my town, hence- MacGyver.

Canadians-

*MuchWest guy- Uhm... Terry David Mulligan
*Dan (big guy, blonde hair). Hmmm, Dan... used to be a MUch DJ, then had his own show. He has since passed away.

Musicians-

*MOBY! - super, super nice guy.
*Bob Geldoff- he said hello, lol
*Gavin Friday- same as above.
*Bono?- sorta, not really
*Edge?- same as Bono. (They were a feet away but we missed out)
*Courtney Love- kinda, not really, lol. I have a lot of that. She bumped into me at Lollapalooza. Her and Melissa Auf Der Mar (sp?) back in their good ole heroine days...

Misc.-

*Paul MacGuiness- really nice man too. When I asked to take a picture of him, he was like 'If ya really want to' lol!

I think that's it. Nothing too spectacular.

I can confirm - he was an ass when I saw him at a gathering. I avoided him. To add to it, he may have been drunk too (makes celebrities more of an ass)!

I have met a lot of celebrities (not bragging by any means, I do not like the 'celebrity' hype), but my favorite was Bill Murray. I was actually nervous around him - but he was great.

I've met (huge list, be prepared! haha):

*Anthony Michael Hall (very sweet guy--but I had this strange desire to call him FarmerTed)

*Pat, the drummer from Weezer--very cool guy

*Brian, the guitarist from Weezer--not quite an asshole, just doing business (sign autograph, move on, no small talk)

*The replacement bass player in Weezer (for the guy who was in the mental institution)--very cool guy

*Bob Sura--used to be the point guard for the CAVS

*Vitaly Potapenko--another ex CAVS player, very sweet guy

I think that's it!

I saw Johnny Depp leaving his club "The Viper Room" in a pink thunderbird in LA a few years ago.

I saw Kevin Spacey leaving Mel's Diner in LA in disguise.

Hmm I saw Jerry Rice at the supermarket.

But I've never talked to any of them.. And I've never met anyone from U2.
