Yes, I've met:

Duran Duran
Isaac Hayes (came to speak to my one class in college)
Styx (well various members, most of them used to live near me and I attended school with one of the kids)
Al Kooper (not to be confused with Alice Cooper, Al Kooper was in Blood Sweat and Tears and played on Dylan's Like A Rolling Stone)
Jenny Jones (she used to have a talk show)
The Buckinghams (local band made good)
I personally knew members of the Dells. You may not know them because they are old but they are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I'm sure I've met more, I'm blanking now. Oh and I didn't meet anyone but saw them filming the Black Knight. I'm pretty sure I've met several blues musicians, I lived near many.

I know (know as in real life) people who have met Tom Hanks, John Travolta and Johnny Depp and all had good comments. In fact true story but Tom Hanks told a local school he would come and talk to them and he did! He's a great guy.

Country singer Pam Tillis. She's my second favorite singer (Dolly Parton is #1).

I'm going to see Pam April 16th when she's at Dollywood....the best of both of my favorites!

In the early 90's, I met singer Juliana Hatfield (Satyricon - Portland OR) while she was touring with The Lemonheads. I was standing in line to get a pitcher of beer, a lady in front of me ordered a pitcher of water, she turned around, bumped into me and spilled her water on me, it was Juliana, she was really nice and apologetic and paid for my pitcher of beer.

Fans of The Adventures Of Pete & Pete will know her from the episode Don't Tread On Pete (she plays the lunch lady that runs off)



At book signings I've met fantasy/scifi author Stephen R Donaldson (got a book signed for a friend for his birthday), it was at a book store at a mall, he was a bit rude.
And at Powell Books in Portland, I stood in line for several hours to get my wife (while we were still dating) a book signed by Anne Rice as a birthday present. Anne was super friendly. When I told her who I was getting it signed for, Anne told me I was a keeper.

Early 90's at a Tower Records in Portland, I met Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle of Roxette.


I, and most everyone in my family that lives in the Sandy/Boring/Gresham Oregon area have had encounters/sightings of/with the Hoffman crew from the tv show Gold Rush, as they live in Sandy.

Before I met my wife, and she was still going to college (University of Washington), she worked at a live music venue/bar that was a hotspot for local bands and met members of various bands including Mudhoney, Everclear, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains...

Too many to list, but the ones I've been most excited about probably wouldn't appeal to many because they are more on the B-list.

Those are the best kind!

I live vicariously through a friend of mine who hits a lot of the cons, he's the one that got my daughter the Texas Chainsaw Massacre apron. And he also got her TerrorVision poster signed by the director.

Do you get any horror cons in your area? There's one local one here that continues to grow each year but the prices are getting out of hand. Where celebrities used to commonly charge $20 for autographs, the norm is now $30-40+.

Seattle has the Crypticon, and Portland has recently had one called the Living Dead Horror Convention. But none really have any interesting celebs. Well, Crypticon this year has Felissa Rose and Jonathan Tiersten, but not really worth the trip just for those two.

I agree. I'd meet them if they were at a convention I was already attending but I wouldn't go too far out of my way for them.

I shook Peter Noone's hand at a concert when he came to Fort Wayne. I haven't met him in person, but Preston Beckman (former head scheduler at NBC and FOX) has published several of my questions in his Masked Scheduler column at TV by the Numbers. On Facebook I am friends with the now deceased Abe Vigoda, and was friends with Barbara Eden when she had an account earlier.

Yep. Oh, and the car from Supernatural will be there, not the Winchester Bros, just the car.

The only celebrity I ever met was Country comedian Jerry Clower when he
performed at Bluefield College(a local Southern Baptist college) in Bluefield,
Virginia in November, 1993. I snuck back inside the auditorium to get Jerry's
autograph. Sadly, I no longer have it as it was lost somehow a few years
later.
