Great News CB
Oooh, Oooh, I met someone famous, but I didn't know he was famous. I met Jimmy Buffet right after his Big Margaritaville hit and being on the cover of the Rolling Stone. He was bumming around the Caribbean, getting his head right after all the Hollywood treatment. I did not realize it until years later. I thought he was an angel sent to help me stay sane. Pretty soon I began to "find" music books lying about, and an American teacher/musician came to the weekly campfire where I played and we sang John Denver, and Christian music. He told the director what nuts they had all been for not letting me play and for shunning me for it.
That's a great story Tina
The best I can do is the fact that I once almost ran Bruce Forsyth of the road
. he was in a golfing cart and I was in a transit van.
No ....... I have met someone else fairly famous. Karen & I met the whole of the band Marillion (after Fish left). D had just had a major op and we had not seen the outside world for a while (what with hospitals, appointments etc) My sister arranged for us to go to Minehead where there was a Marrillion convention. She contacted the band and got permission for my Mum & Dad to attend (without paying for the tickets to get on to the site). They were then able to look after D in the evening whilst we went to the gig.
Marillion did a signing session, and my sister had also made up some babygro for D with Marillion album covers printed on. We took a spare one of these and went along to the signing with D asleep in our arms. The band signed the babygro
. Then in an article I read a few months later, they were asked what the strangest thing they had ever been ask to sign and they said 'a baby'. I always like to think that was us, although maybe they had been asked to sign a baby as well
