Does Keith Urban, Tiny Tim and Don "The Dragon" Wilson count?

Best Answer

They sure do! :-) What was Don "The Dragon" Wilson like in person?

Best Answer

He's wonderful! I got to spend about an hour with him, just chatting about martial arts and some of the movies he's made and about my son, who had just gone into the Army and would be in Korea for his first Christmas away from home. My son also studies Martial Arts and Don Wilson signed a photo with a message on it just for my son. We also had several pictures taken together, which I still have. Don Wilson is a very down to earth person, very humble and very polite and it's something I will never forget.

Best Answer

I met Paris and Nikki Hilton before they were famous. I was staying at the Waldorf Astoria and they stopped me to ask about a convention that was there. They lived in Waldorf towers at the time. I am not a fan and Paris was rude, but her sister was pretty nice.

Best Answer

I figured Nikki was the nicer sister. lol

Best Answer

If Paris was rude, then I would not have given her the time of day.

Best Answer

I was rude right back and she got frustrated with me using word she couldn't understand so she walked away and said "come on Nikki!" Nikki looked at me and told me good luck and she kinda looked embarrassed that her sister was such a numbskull

Best Answer

I'm jealous because of some the people you've gotten to meet here. lol I saw Kevin Smith &amp; Jason Mews live earlier his year with some friends. Very cool experience!

Best Answer

Unfortunately, I didn't meet Jason Mews but Kevin Smith was really awesome. He stopped to have a full on conversation and gave me tips about screen writing. He's a really nice guy.

no, and I am so jealous you've met all those people! Nick Guerra follows me on twitter though... he's not famous, but he was on comedy central once... lol. That's probably the closest I'll ever get. Speaking of Nick, he's pretty funny >>http://youtu.be/r9vxz38JON4

Best Answer

Aww! No need to be jealous. lol Thanks for the link! :-)

Best Answer

I've met a few...most were very nice...but Paul Newman was a complete asshat and so was Dianah Ross.

Best Answer

Really?! Wow!

Best Answer

Paul Newman was the worst. My son and I had pit passes for a race that his racing team was in. My son who was 12 at the time, thought he was one of the drivers and asked him for his autograph. Newman started screaming obscenities....and ranting about how he wasn't going to sign anything for anyone because it would just end up on ebay.....making money for lowlife scum.
Dianah I met a charity fundraiser. She was obnoxious....belittling the catering staff....complaining about how much of her schedule the appearance was taking up.
In both cases I was thoroughly disgusted.

Best Answer

Ugh! I'am so sorry you had such rotten experiences. Especially your son. I can only imagine how crappy he felt after Paul Newman did what he did. :-(

Best Answer

Smiling...12 year olds are resilient.....and the other celebrity drivers he met more than made up for it. Mario Andretti in particular, was really nice. He let my son sit in one of his cars, try on a racing helmet, and let us take pictures with him.

Best Answer

haha!

Best Answer

We have one in common.<br />
I met Kenny Rogers and his family.

Best Answer

You got to meet him &amp; his family? WOW! :-)

Best Answer

My mother has met Jack Black.

Best Answer

I have met a bunch...<br />
But my all time favorite run in was with Big George Foreman!<br />
He initially tried to run away from me...but since I am quick (and George is slow), I caught up to him fairly easily. Once I met up with him, even though I am a big strong guy...George made me feel small (I rarely feel small next big guys). He was extremely nice to me too, he invited me to tag along with him (which I graciously refused out of respect to him).

Best Answer

yes, famous people are just like the rest of us.

Best Answer

True. lol I never said they weren't.

Best Answer

I never understood people who are star struck. silly

Best Answer

I think it's cute that you called me silly. lol :-) I understand where you're coming from. I wasn't star struck when I met these folks. But I was very impressed by how kind they were to me.

Best Answer

I wonder how you meet all those celebrities.

Best Answer

Eminem &amp; Kid Rock are both from Detroit. I live in Detroit. I've met them bunch of times. Aretha Franklin &amp; Smoky Robinson i've met backstage after a concert whenever they were in town. They have roots here in Detroit (Motown). I met Zooey Deschanel, Amanda Peet &amp; Conan O'brien when was on vacation in California a couple of years back. I met Joan Jett at a book signing &amp; met Carlos Santana after a concert of his. Leon Hendrix was touring with him at the time. So that was a double dose of awesomeness right there! :-)

Best Answer

Thanks for taking the time and effort to explain. Music celebrities fascinated me when I was young. But now that I am old, I got over it.

Best Answer

You are most welcome, sir. :-) And I can understand not being as fascinated with them as you got older. In the end, they're people trying to make their way through this world like the rest of us.
