I don't get around much anymore -- if you look at all those names those are pretty crusty celebs... heh.
At the time I did a combination of things, among which were some journalism and things in the music biz (including recording).
Many I just met out and about -- like John Goodman -- met him on a flight to New Orleans out of LAX the day before Thanksgiving heck of a nice guy.
Met Cokie Roberts in St. Louis on a layover at the airport.
Met Sam Donaldson at an event I was covering as a photographer.
Met Gene Simmons backstage @ a concert that I was working as a rep for a music products company (and let me just say he is the most disgusting human being I've ever met).
Met some at trade shows like Doc Severnson and Omar Hakim...
It just varies.
I have moss now
Never met Sting but always wanted to also -- in fact -- I have a whole list of people I would like to have met -- like Kate Hepburn, Shatner, Nimoy, the Stones, Clapton, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Susan Sarandon, Gena Davis, Elizabeth Shue, Diane Lane, Gena Davis, um... ok... I seem to be stuck in a pattern here.
