I met Dave Murray of Iron Maiden in Las Vegas the night before the show in February 2016. We ran into him in the casino at the Luxor and we talked for a few minutes. He's the best!

 

I met Dave Mustaine, David Ellefson, Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover of Megadeth backstage before a show at the Cow Palace in San Francisco in 2010.

 

We had dinner at the same table with the members of Yngwie Malmsteen’s band before a show in 2017, but we didn’t know who they were until we saw them on stage later that night. 😆

 

I met Micky Dolenz of The Monkees at a casino bar a couple of years ago. It was kind of funny... I came out of the restroom to find him sitting on my barstool. We talked for a few minutes and then I left.

 

And I met Smokey Robinson in Las Vegas on my birthday in 1994. I gave him a rose and he gave me a kiss.

 

I'd like to meet Alice Cooper. And the rest of the guys in Iron Maiden. And Dave Grohl.

I grew up across the street from Peggy March whose real name is Margaret "Peachy" Batavio.

Also, went to North Penn High School with John Oates who was an all-state wrestler.

While I never actually met Bruce Springsteen, I did get to strum his guitar while playing "Born To Run" in Hershey, PA.

Most memorable  celebrity I ever met in a social setting, long after his 15 minutes of fame were up.  This guy was for real and this post just reminded me of our evening talking for hours - about his career, his personal Revelations, and most of all our mutual love of vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley music.  Sad and sweet, still arrived in a Rolls Royce to the party.  God Bless Tiny Tim.

Many decades ago my friend did promos and interviews for an underground rock station so I tagged along alot.  We were all so young!  Most impressive, given that point in time: Brian May, he was brilliant, witty, funny, and years later I found out he had an advanced degree in astrophysics, that explained it.  Never met any of the Beatles, they were long split up by then and I probably wouldn't have been given access. Who I would love to sit down with one on one George Harrison (RIP) , Albert Lee, Jimmy Page, David Grohl, and Willie Nelson, and for sure number 1 Weird Al, another genius imo
