I don't mean someone you saw at a concert or public event, but someone who was close enough to shake hands with or to exchange a few words.

Great list. You have had an interesting life.
It' nice when a celeb takes time to talk to a child. Vaughn Monroe, a famous singer of the old days, said hello to me in a Vegas hotel lobby. I was about ten and probably staring.
Cool! And keeping a low profile at the thrift store, too.
The name is familiar to me. I think "celebrities" who are not entertainers (or politicians) tend to be more like "ordinary" people.
Wow.. and Whoa!
Almost forgot - when I was around 12 or 13 I met George Gately, the cartoonist who drew the "Heathcliff" comic strip. He was my first "celebrity" meeting (and I still have the "Heathcliff" paperback that he autographed with his name & a sketch!)
Sorry, should have said SON of Scott of the Antarctic! Also, his godfather was JM Barrie who wrote 'Peter Pan'.
That's quite a few-- sorry I've never heard of any of them.
There all UK based. A friend of my grans worked at the local theater and so I always got chance to get the stars autographs and find out when they would be at the stage door
I'm sure it was a great experience in every case, and I agree that privacy is an issue to be respected.
That's quite a list! The Monkeys were amongst my favourites. Helen Shapiro has a great voice; I believe she does a lot of jazz these days.
