The most famous person… December 30, 2015

I was reading Danielwalldammit’s blog today, a tribute to Lemmy Kilmister, and this sentence jumped at me:

Lemmy is probably the most famous person ever to speak to me. It was after a concert. The man walked by and said; “covered in fucking blood, eh?”

That got me thinking.  A lot of people probably have a good story to tell about a famous person speaking to them and what they said.

Here’s my challenge:  Who’s the most famous person to speak to you? Can you remember what they said, or tell us something interesting about the encounter?  Let’s rule out times when you were part of an audience, those are too easy and generic and shouldn’t count.  Only times when some well-known person was speaking directly to you.

I’ll start, I have at least two.  (Maybe I’ll think of more later.)

Gary Sinise said to me, “Be careful, the stage is slippery!”

Alex Trebek asked me, “Do you think it will show on camera that I’m not wearing shoes?”

Let’s hear yours!
