See Harvey Keitel often up in VT, next time I'm going to ask if he'll take a picture with me. If he says no, I'll tell him it takes 2-3 days to die from a gut shot. Used to see Christopher Reeve back in the day also on the lift lines. Guys from Living Color (the band) sat in front of me on the plane. Dudes were very cool. Used to see Trump Jr. All the time fly fishing up on the river.

Kool from Kool in the gang brought me into his recording studio. That was pretty cool.
I used to work on Whitney Houston's brother's car. And David Tyree from the Giants was a regular at my shop.
I'm friends in real life with the real Bloodninja.
I've bumped into some members of naughty by nature. They were locals.
Hmm. I just noticed I only ever met famous minorities.
Wait....
I went to high school with Leo Fitzpatrick,Mike Pitt, and Chris Gethard. You probably have seen some of their movies or TV shows. Rapper GDP has been to my house 100 times.

At night we would walk around with the walkie talkies and pretend that we were security...at 16, its was a fun job.

In my younger days I used to see drunk Joe Walsh on Saturdays, when spending weekends at my friend's in NYC.

Shared an Elevator ride with Jerry Garcia.

Played Pool and had a beer with Clint Eastwood in Sun Valley Idaho.
I spend a season working and skiing in Sun Valley and cooked for or met a lot of famous people.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Johnny Carson and so on.

When I cooked at the restaurant in West Port CT- Martha Stewart, Paul Newman, Robert Redford were in every week.
Kieth Richards used to hang out and drink at after hours bar we all used to go to after work.

When cooking in Princeton, Howard Stern had his book party at the restaurant I was a chef at. He spend 5 mins hanging out in the kitchen.
Howard is very tall.

Conan O'Brien is also very tall met him at our kitchen when I cooked in Manhattan.

Not sure how famous the guy was in the US, but back in '93 I was on the same cable car with Alberto 'La Bomba' Tomba on the way up to the Gran Risa slope in Alta Badia during the World Cup Giant Slalom. He was so famous back then he had to board the car from a side door and he was escorted by a bunch of fellow Carabinieri. All of the other skiers just boarded the cable car like everybody else, after joining a rather long line. I guess it's no longer the case these days. The day after the race we're on the same cable car with the Pickard brothers (again, very famous french downhill skiers in the '90) and my buddy tells Frank Pickard 'you didn't do too well yesterday, did you?' to which he replies 'I finished 5th yesterday, how did you finish ?' (picture a rather annoyed and annoying french accent'...the rest of the trip was very silent...

Other sightings include Paul Sorvino at EWR, Hulk Hogan at Citrus Park Mall in Tampa, Kenny G on 5th Avenue, Ethan Hawke in Bleecker St...

The wife is convinced we saw Jesse Tyler Ferguson at the Stop&Shop in Clifton, I highly doubt it was him but who knows.

Incredibly profound yet fantastically flawed
Years ago, I worked in a hotel one exit south of the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel, so a lot of the acts used to stay in our hotel. I worked in maintenance so I met a bunch of them just walking around. I am sure I can't remember all of them, but I do remember some of the nicer folks. My all time favorite was BB King - that guy was just one of the nicest people I ever met. Skid Row stayed there, too, which is odd because Sebastian Bach was local. I think he was from Colts Neck or something like that. He was a bit odd, but his bandmates were good guys and funny as hell. Oh, and not a musical act, but Chocolate Thunder himself, Mr. Darryl Dawkins, was dating the track coach from Monmouth Regional so he used to stay there all the time. He was a great guy, and he used to chat with all the housekeepers like he knew them all his life. Other than that, there were others but none pop to mind at the moment except for Fishbone. I didn't know much about them other than they were freaking awesome to see live at Lollapalooza. But they must have had a reputation because our manager had all these notes about what would need to be repaired after they stayed in the hotel. I don't recall them being nearly as wild as he expected them to be, though.

Nothing as impressive as some of the above, but when I was a kid, one of the parents of a little league football team mate owned a Chinese Restaurant. At a "team dinner", we got to meet a few Giants...Dave Jennings, Craig Morton, and Larry Csonka... My wife's uncle is friendly with Joe Namath, so, met him a few times
