They were pretty regular people once you got to know them.
But a little stand-offish initially, not surprising given the way people love to bother them.
Quite a few. Most of them were singers at concerts, but I've also some movie stars and pro athletes. They were a mixed bag of personalities. Some of them gave me the impression they thought I was just a fan to be made happy with an autograph and the pushed away; others were more than happy to answer questions.
Yes I have, mostly musicians. I've met all four original members of KISS, the Ramones, Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth of Overkill, Max and Igor Cavalera of Sepultura, the Ramones, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth, and Jerry Only and Doyle of the Misfits, to name just a few.
Non-musicians I've met include Adam "Batman" West, Richard "Battlestar Galactica" Hatch, and Mike Reiss (head writer/producer of "The Simpsons").
Yes, Magic Johnson, Reggie Jackson, Meshach Taylor, David Boreanaz, and I'm sure there are others whom I can't think of at the moment. I've had many more "sightings" of celebrities than I have actually met with. I've never asked them for any autographs as I know many of them just want to enjoy the day's activities.
Yes. And almost time, I'm disappointed then never like them again. So I don't want to meet any more celebrities. There has only been one exception. But I'd rather not take the risk of ruining good entertainment by meeting them.
OK, I have to preface by saying I don't gush and most of the ones I have met I was usually helping them out or working with them in some way. None of this had to do with photography. I worked with /met in some way. Princess Diana ( one on one), Oprah, the last 4 Presidents and VPs, Michael Jordan, Madonna, Duran Duran, President of Mexico, Harrison Ford, John Travolta, Prince, Neil Diamond, Alan Greenspan, Charlie trotter, many heads of countries and a zillion other ones. These are the ones with great stories.

What are the funniest actual names you have ever heard?What are some truly awfully funny names you have ever heard. One of my favorites is Young Boozer. The only rule for answering this question is the name has to belong to a real person, no made up names please!

Have you met some people who have no interest what so ever in any form of Music?I came across few people who had no interest in Music. I was a little... gobsmacked in the beginning. I mean no interest in any form of Music at all. Then I tried to understand their perspective, with a little success....

Can be someone political, celebrity, world leader or inspiring. So who be it? (I met Robert Englund in 2004 while I participated as a contestant on his reality show which was never released by the network).
