Hey guys, I thought it would be nice to make a thread where users can can post which celebrities that they have:
Met in person
Twitter contacted (ie been mentioned or Re-tweeted)
or any other method of communication

I will leave what you judge as a celebrity up to the poster.

I will start, I will self edit my celebrity list due to me not seeing the people as celebrities as they are more aquatints as I played high school basketball and I played against many NBA players (and current NCAA tourney players)

My list:
CheapyD - God of all Cheapness (tweeted back and fourth mentioning me)
Rudy Gay - NBA player (didnt play in high school met at a camp)
Digger Phelps - basketball sports analyist (spoke at a camp I was working at)

YOUR TURN! :bouncy:

I once stood on a sidewalk in London as the Queen's motorcade went by. I didn't meet her, but if her window had been open, I could've high-fived her.

Also, Robert Beltran is my uncle... (I suspect only a few hard-core Trekkies know who he is.)

I met Papa Roach WAY back in the day; they were pretty cool dudes. I actually wound up meeting them again a few years ago and they were complete asshats.

I've met Slug from Atmosphere, Mac Lethal, and Greyskul.

I met Paramore a few years ago when I was lucky enough to attend a private acoustic concert they put on for probably 20 people. Here's a short vid I recorded of the performance.



I've met and shot the shit with CM Punk multiple times back at ROH shows in like 2004/2005.

Lastly I've met Andrew Bogut (at the time was the Center for the Milwaukee Bucks. He's now on the Warriors).

Even though I rarely enjoyed watching Voyager, I know he played Chakotay on the show.:booty:

As for celebrities I've met, do 1980's pro wrestlers count? :razz:

If so, everybody except for Hogan and Savage from the 1980's WWF lineup. We used to go to the one local venue where they had shows at least once every 2-3 months back in the 80's and early 90's here. I met everybody from Andre The Giant to Hacksaw Jim Duggan.;) Savage was here a couple of times(at least) but musta snuck in and outta the building before the fans could catch him.:-#

When I was a kid I met Dick The Bruiser (wrestler), Clayton Moore (The Lone Ranger), and Jim Nabors (Gomer Pyle).

As an adult I met Robert Crumb and worked and drank with Don Ed Hardy.

Oh and I'm second cousins with Patsy Cline. At least that is what I've been told.

The end.

Sasha Yvonne Wallach (not really a celebrity but a local actor who is outrageously hot in person, imagine Sean Yseult from White Zombie with curves)
More metal bands than I can recall
More MN Vikings than I care to count
Due to an internship I met 98% of the MN Wild team from the 3rd season when they made the playoffs
P.O.S. and I had an almost hour long discussion at an Obama campaign concert
Whole mess of the MN media
etc...

I don't really get starstruck and the only person who has ever made me shy/awkward while meeting them was Amanda Fucking Palmer & Neil Gaimann while they were out walking their dogs.

Met the band RED a few times. Really awesome, down to Earth guys.

Jeremy Hummel (former drummer/co-founder of Breaking Benjamin) used to shop at the grocery store I had my first job at. Cool guy. Used to go to high school basketball games with a mutual friend of mine also.

Davy Jones (The Monkees) also used to shop there. He was a really nice guy, always friendly and willing to speak with anyone who came up to him.

As for twitter bs, retweets don't really mean much other than the fact that they (or their publicist) read your message. Who cares?

Terrance Zdunich, Lloyd Kaufman, the guy who played Boba Fett, I think I met the guy who was Darth Vader, most of the Dragon Ball Z voice actors at gaming conventions, random B-listers, MC Frontalot, mc chris, Schaffer the Darklord, all of Abney Park, The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing, and in May I get to meet Darren Bousman finally. There might be more... I don't know.

Oh, and for Twitter, I've had Kevin Smith reply to me a few times.

Was able to meet Mick Foley, Shawn Michaels, and Harley Race.

When I was younger, I snail mailed Joe Montana a few times. Although it took a year or more, he did eventually respond back with autograph items (one of which I sent to him to autograph, the other was an 8x10 pic he signed).

The McElroy brothers read a few of my questions on their MBMBAM podcast.

Price Chopper near me used to have Chief Saturdays where they would bring in a KC Chiefs player or two and have them sign autographs. Most weren't big names, but I was able to meet Will Shields who is one of the best linemen ever IMO.

Exactly. About 6-7 years ago my one ex convinced me to make a MySpace account. I had it for all of a week before I got sick of all of the complete strangers trying to be my 'friend' who just came out of nowhere. I viewed it as a popularity contest where idiots were impressed by how many 'friends' the other idiots had on the service. I imagine Facebook and Twitter are just more of the same.

Only time I joined FB was to try and get some promo code from Hastings or some other retail chain. Otherwise those social sites and all of the self important people on them can (insert graphic visual here).

I've probably met almost every metal band in the early 2000's due to my band playing with them back in the day (Sevendust, Filter, Taproot, Drowning Pool, Ill Nino, etc.)

But I will mainly list the ones that stand out to me:

Howard Stern: Met him while on vacation in NYC. I was like 15, he was cool as shit and took a picture with me, which I still keep up in my apartment.

Nicko McBrain (drummer of Iron Maiden) - Lived down the street from me when I was 15/16...invited me and a buddy into his house to hang out for an hour and gave us t-shirts and took pictures. Was truly an awesome experience!

Tank Abbott (UFC Fighter): My band licensed music to the UFC, and they used one of our songs for Tank's entrance theme, so we went to an event and met him.

The Undertaker: Met him at the same UFC event...friends with Tank Abbott

Joe Rogan: Again, met him at the UFC event. He mentioned us on Pay Per View, which was badass.

Enrique Iglesias: Another UFC story. I barely met him, but UFC paid for my band to record at this famous studio in Miami, and we were taking band pictures outside by the sign, and there was a Mercedes in the way, so we went inside to see who's it was so they could move...and it was Enrique's, who was recording in the studio next to ours...he kindly moved his car for us, lol. We also hung out in the game room of the studio while Missy Elliott's posse played pool...that was interesting.

Megadeth: I was 15 (1994) and we signed up for the fan club and received backstage passes. Got to hang out with the whole band for like an hour. Was pretty badass!

Dee Snider: Never met him, but I tried starting a fanzine thing when I was 13 about Twisted Sister so I wrote him, and he sent me a hand written letter back with his publicist's contact info...nothing ever came of it because I was some young stupid kid, but was still cool nonetheless. I still have the letter, as well as another letter he sent me after that.

Overkill: One of my favorite metal bands of all time. I have met them on many occasions. The singer (Blitz) and his wife own a German Chocolate shop in the town I am from in NY, so I went to visit family on vacation and stopped in. His wife sold me some chocolate covered pretzels and talked to me about how my band (old high school band, not Scars of Life) played with his band in the late 90's. I catch up with Blitz everytime they are in Florida. He is always awesome and says he remembers me, but who knows...lol.

I think that's it for me, but on a side note, but Dad dated John Travolta's sister in the 1960's.

Is Ted Nugent as bathshit crazy as he seems on tv?

He was in a real hurry so he didn't really talk much. He didn't come across as very friendly though. I just went to his room and grabbed a big metal case and he got the other one and we threw it in his truck and he thanked/tipped me and he rushed off.

Let's see if I can remember a few:

Met a bunch of PBA bowlers back in the late 80's when my father entered a Pro-Am tournament. I had photos, but they got lost during one of our moves. I was 6 or so at the time.

Marc Summers - Got his autograph and got to shake his hand after the Family Double Dare tour waaaay back in the early 90's. He was actually a bit reluctant to do a meet and greet at first, but eventually came out.

Ron Howard - This was back when he was promoting the movie ED TV. I was with a class trip to NBC 5 Studios in Chicago, where we got to see a bunch of behind the scenes stuff with the morning show. Ron Howard was the guest that morning. I got a brief moment to chat with him, told him I thought Ransom was an awesome movie, and got a photo with him. Nice guy.

Steve Dahl - Famous radio personality in Chicago. Met him, got his autograph and a handshake. That's about it.

Bubba The Love Sponge - Radio personality. He was in Chicago two years ago filming a pilot for a television talk show that never got picked up. He met the entire audience, took photos and even cracked jokes with a few people. I have a photo with him on my Facebook page. Pretty cool guy.

All I can remember off the top of my head, really.
