Good to have you back, Maymay! I hope you are doing okay now.
You've met Phil Lynott and Cliff Burton? Cool! But...eeehhh...how old are you, girl?
Thank you, Loudmouth! I met Cliff Burton a couple of nights before the band took off to Sweden (wasn' it Sweden?), where they had an accident... Some people think I'm really old. That's really Koo~l, but the reasons why I had chances to meet those people were that I was living in London at the time and also many of my friends were working with them. I'd love to meet Danko Jones members one day, my BIG DESIRE~!

Met Gene Simmons at his Toronto book signing a few years back as well as at the '95 official KISS Konvention in Toronto. Also met Paul Stanley and the rest of KISS at that event and then Paul again at his Toronto Tower Records signing when he was here doing Phantom Of The Opera.
Met Bruce Kulick again along with John Corabi when they were both in Union at another KISS convention (uh, can you tell I'm a fan?).
I shook hands with Bono and Adam Clayton when I saw one of the four shows U2 did back in September. I was in the first row up by the catwalk/stage thing that comes out into the audience. Now that was one of the highlights of my life. Bono was walking by and I used all my height (6'3) to get my hands up near him and he stopped, squatted down a little and shook my hand for a few seconds and said "Alright, brother". ;D
And while I never actually met them I had a close encounter with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band at Darien Lake (near Buffalo, NY) right after their show there. It was an ampitheatre show and as my brother and I left the venue and were crossing the road to get to the parking lot the whole band's SUV motorcade went past, like, two feet in front of us. It was surreal...they had these big beefy security guy running alongside the vehicles, like a presidential motorcade or something. Bruce had already gone past but you could see the rest of the guys in the different vehicles. I think seeing Little Steven was the coolest...I mean yeah, the guy's in the friggin E Street Band which is badass enough but DAMN man, it's Silvio from The Sopranos as well!
This is just a bragging topic, but ok, what the hell. I´ve met a lot of swedish musicans, but the most well known international ones I´ve hung with is Mano Chao, Carl Bârat, Pete Doherty, J.C and Damon from Danko Jones, Mike Monroe from Hanoi Rocks, No Means No (hehe) and Fu Manchu. But more interesting is who I WOULD LIKE to hang with; I would love to meet Justin Hawkins, Mustasch and Carl Bârat (again). He´s lovely . So I´ll like to pass the question over; Who would you like to meet?
I don't I've ever really met any celebrities... Oh yeah, I met Lee Towers in the park when I was really young, haha. You dutchies should know him.
;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Loes, you just made my day! Lee Towers, the Dutch Elvis!!! Who doesn't know good ol' Lee... I was getting very jealous about everybody meeting famous rock stars, except me, but now I feel a bit better again
Live fast, die young and leave a good-looking corpse
No, didn't meet him. It was in 1998 when we opened 2 shows with my ex-band (Vampyre State Building) for the later Misfits outfit (Jerry Only, Doyle & Dr. Chud + don't know the name of the singer) in Berlin and Hamburg.
The singer was Michale Graves who is waaaaaay better than Glenn Danzig!!!
If I'm not mistaken, Myke Hideous was Jerry Only's son..Too bad I never saw the Misfits lineup with Graves.. Michale Graves recently featured on the Roadrunner All Stars Tribute..his vocals are still top notch!
