- Claudia Schiffer (at a party from my aunts company (commercial shit))
- talked to Kim Clijsters (if "Hi how you doing?" "Good!" counts as talking)
- talked to Bertrand Baguette (currently testing for Renault F1, not really that famous yet )
- saw Tom Boonen in a club (the cyclist)
- lots of international dj's, though that isnt actually 'meeting' them
I once blanked Nicko McBrain at a musical instrument show. Walked up to him and said, "excuse me" to get passed him. Didn't realise who he was, (oh the shame I was a big IM fan at the time!!), until I saw him doing a clinic a couple of hours later.
Used to live next door to Michael Brandon and Glynis Barber (Dempsey and Makepeace -they were a couple in real life) and Michael once said "morning" to me as I was outside taking the cover off my motorbike.
They are probably the most famous people I've actually talked to.
Other that I've either walked passed or been in the presence of, (not including on stage at gigs):
Pauline Collins and John Alderton (another real life couple)
and motorsport wise:
John Reynolds (well on the track at the same time as him anyway :shy
Tony blair (Famous for being a twat) came to my school a couple of years back. I got to have a brief word with him and shook his hand, not that i entirely wanted to.
Vicki Butler Henderson. This was about 5 years back at Silverstone. I think the BTCC or something was on. I didn't actually talk to her apart from saying "Hi", but it was my dad who was talking to her. He spoke to her for about 10 minutes, and for those 10 minutes i was in a trance fixated on her.
I can appreciate musicians from all genres but DJs... They just play records. **** you, you aren't a rock star, you just bought some records. ****ing die.
Honestly DJs, who the **** are you? DJs make me angry. If you can scratch then you're a musician, if you just play other peoples records and stand there infront of a thousand gurning pill victims pumping your fists like you just invented music, you're basically just like every tool pumping their fists back at you, except you got chosen to be the one who stands behind the turntables.
Talentless gobshites inspiring a nation of talentless gobshites.
More infamous than famous, but i know michael 'lotto lout' carroll, and have done for many years, i first met him through a mate just before he went to prison, but when he came out after that stretch he bought a lottery ticket and the rest is history i guess, he can be a nice bloke, but acts a bit of a dick most of the time as well, always has and always will be the same, money or no money.
I also spoke to clarkson over my garden fence about 7 years or so ago as he randomly pulled in and did one of his pieces to camera in a farm gateway next to a big barn about 10 yard away from my mum and dads place, and all i could think to say to him was 'alright jeremy' he said 'yes very well, and you' and i replied 'yeah fine thanks' and that was it.
I should have at least offered him a cuppa or asked for an autograph but i didn't think.
I saw gary bushell, who used to write for the sun newspaper, coming out of a toilet in corley ash services around that sort of time as well, we were going on holiday.
I was also mates with a girl at school who went on to be on the late night *ahem* tv show babe station.
My cousins are very lucky with who they know too, my cousin lynette was mates with myleene klass of hearsay and the jungle at college and they still meet up now and again, and my other cousin franchesca (her sister) went to school and is mates with hannah spearitt formally of s club 7, and primevil.
