Not everyone will be familiar with these just as I won't be familiar with some of yours. But here goes......

Steve McMahon (Liverpool FC) came to my brothers best friends house after the Hillsborough tragedy to give support to the family after his death.

Ronnie Whealan (Liverpool FC) was with Steve McMahon and is now a regular drinking partner of mine.

Steve Harris (Iron Maiden bassist) at Liverpool Royal Court Theatre in 1990 just before concert started.

The Duchess of Kent - When I first left school I started a mechanics course and she came to the training centre.

Pete Best (original drummer with the Beatles) he was my dads landlord when he lived at 8 Haymans Green, West Derby in Liverpool which is home to the Casbah Coffe Club (basement) where the Beatles started. He asked me to paint the cellar for him ready for the North West Battle of the Bands competition. Still see him now and again in the area.

Jan Molby (Liverpool FC) he used to be a regular drinking partner of my dads.

Paul Gascoigne (when he played for Everton FC) had a wild drinking session with him in my local pub.

Duncan Ferguson (with Gazza ^) and still comes in now and again.

John Thompson (actor - The Fast Show, now in Coronation Street) bumped into him almost knocking him over while getting my bag off the carousal in Manchester Airport.

Johnny Vegas (comedian now in Benidorm TV show) bumped into the fat bastard sending him sprwling on the floor while in B&Q St.Helens, he was buying locks and chains.

Heidi Range (Suga Babes singer) fitted her mums central heating system and had to fit a radiator in her bedroom, she was still in bed worn out from the Liverpool Summer Pops festival and she looked a bit worse for wear.

Ricky Thomlinson (The Royle Family) met him in a local timber yard and discussed the shoddy service of the staff.

Jody Latham (Shameless) went drinking together in Liverpool city centre after finishing a friends movie.

David Yip (Indiana Jones) ^

Leo Gregory (Mark of Cain) ^

Huggy Bear (Starsky & Hutch) drank together in Manchester Airport for 3 hours.

There's a few more which may spring to mind that I can't think of right now but I'm friends/related with a few sports personalities but mentioning them could reveal my real identity here on iGrandTheftAuto.com so I won't mention them.

Also met numerous politicians and and shit like that.

I've met and know a shitload of musicians that are famous (i'm also a musician) and have had them loan me equipment to record with, and let them borrow my stuff. i'm not too much into name dropping. (and one of you fucks will probably try to find out who i am if you were to meet the people i mentioned one day! haha) lets just say a lot of musicians.

other random stuff:
Mel Gibson/Jodie Foster were filming in DUMBO a couple weeks ago but I just saw them during a shoot, didn't meet them.
My mother knows the mother of some soccer player from the Metrostars. can't remember his name but I got a bunch of signed pics from him sitting at home.

that's about it for me.

I know a lot of professional surfers and like an above poster, I'm not into name dropping. Most of them are from Cocoa Beach or the surrounding area, like me.

Uh, I can't really be bothered with a full list, but I met Cheryl Cole the other week, and Gordon Strachan. Dylan Moran used to buy wine from the Threshers I worked at, I met Jim Watson once and Dominic Diamond lives next door to my parents.

Anyone who hasn't heard of the latter should be ashamed to own a videogame. If you haven't heard of the second last, you should be ashamed to have DNA.

Andrew Stockdale (Wolfmother) went to my high school. His band sucks, though.

I've met variour rugby league players, but no one here would know of them.

Like others in this topic, my parents have met all the famous people. My dad met Peter Tosh ffs. sad.gif

To be fair, weren't they both exs by the end of the movie?
