I see by the replies that there is quite a variety of music that the board members like, and a few stories of hanging out with famous people..(Billy Joe and Rancid) Anyone else met a famous person? When you met this famous person, was it what you expected, or were they a total jerk?:Push:

Not really "famous", but famous to me, at least - George Rebelo, the drummer from Hot Water Music, one of my favorite bands. I met him this past New Year's Eve in Gainesville after they played a show. Oh, and I stood right next to Matt Skiba :love: from Alkaline Trio at the bar at the same club on July 4th last year. My boyfriend talked to him. And I met Tim, the singer from Rise Against, that same night. He stopped and talked to my friend and me. Very nice guy.

About 5 years ago I met Joey Fatone from N'Sync :suspiciou He was at a mall down in Palm Beach Gardens. My ex-boyfriend's little sister used to love N'Sync, so I stopped him and got his autograph. He acted flustered and annoyed :suspiciou

Hey. I'm a newbie who likes to lurk, but this one caught my eye. I went to warped tour and met the Way brothers of MCR. Mikey was so nice. He even introduced us to Gerard. I used to be a HUGE Gerard Way fan, but he was very mean. =( I think in all honesty, he was not interested in meeting me and my friend, she gave me the tickets =) I love her, because we were not very beautiful model types. Maybe it was a bad day for him, but being that he hurt my feelings and my friends feelings, I am no longer a fan.

I think so, too :biggrin: I've seen Alkaline live a few times, and they're coming here in April. I just have a strange attraction to three guys in black suits who wear eyeliner and sing about serial killers :shame: :P No, I'm not strange.......... :nuts:

At the title fights I've gone to in Vegas many of the celebs come out; we always pay top dollar for prime seating so I have walked up and complimented many prize fighters, there is this one guy from HBO's Oz who is always at fights but I never remember his name (I just said, "hey I really loved your performance in Oz".) It is always my hubby who remembers the names I just smile and shake, when able.

Don't know if it counts but I used to have Paul Newman's phone number in my possession. Gave it to all my girlfriends for their birthdays.

Met Jennifer Holliday and the singer of Twisted Sister when I worked in a currency exchange office... but I guess that just celebrity sightings.

And my neighbor is one of Sweden's most famous pop stars. Don't like his music tho ;)

I've met a lot of Nobel Prize Winners, CEOs and a few billionaires but I'm not sure how famous anyone considers them. It's not exactly like meeting Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Or even Jessica Simpson.

Extreme Home Makeover was re-doing a house close to me a couple years ago. A couple friends and I went one day to watch the renovation in action. We got to meet Ty, Paige, Michael and Constance. On the unveiling day, we stood there in the crowd for 6 hours! :oh:

Hubby and I also stood in line behind an actor in line at the grocery store once while in Malibu....I for the life of me can't remember his name...ack! I want to say Samuel L. Jackson....but I'm not sure. Darn it. :sad:

Hmm.. I know there's someone else.. damn, my memory is lacking :wacko:

Patati, who is your neighbor? I'm trying to think of the most famous singer in Sweden and I can't seem to fathom who it is :P LOL
