my closest encounter was a blink by Flea and John Frusciante, from the RHCP and a pointing finger and tongue from some dude called Danko Jones, you might have heard from him ;D unfortunately, ive never met a famous person..
Danko Jones few times and JC ones, Donna F and Donna C from The Donnas, Zia and Peter from Dandy Warhols, all dudes from Flaiming Sideburns, Ville Valo from HIM, Jussi69 from 69Eyes, Maja from The Sounds, all the guys from The Rasmus, Santeri from Amorphis...
Then those popstars like Kym Marsh, Amy Studt. And I've spoke on the phone with Eagle-Eye Cherry, Kelly Clarkson and Jenny Frost from Atomic Kitten.
Did I say that? Or just think it? Was I talking? Did they hear me?

i've met Moe Berg(The pursuit of Happiness), The Hip, Danny Greaves(the Watchmen), The Weakerthans, Deanna Carter, Ian Astbury(Cult), Bad Company, Colin James, Joe Satriani, Allanah Myles, The New Meanies, Brad Roberts(Crash Test Dummies), and Burton Cummings.
I met Lemmy (I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy) at the DJ gig at the Camden Barfly earlier this year. Yes, Lemmy was in the audience at a DJ gig. He was there with Ace from Skunk Anansi (probably spelt wrong). I made a complete arse of myself but I got to shake his hand. I've got to say that he seemed like quite a nice fella, I thought he might be sick and tired of fans approaching him and I had visions of him telling me to fu*k off but he didn't, he was quite a pleasant chap.
At a Dandy Warhols gig about 3 years ago, my girlfriend bought a T shirt and Zia from the band served her. I had to tell her who had just served her as she didn't even realise. I must admit you don't expect to buy a T shirt off the keyboard player.
