I guess for me it would be Ringo Starr. 
I worked with him in a TV series on PBS 20 years ago. 


Was it when he was the conductor in Thomas and Friends?  :)

That's the show. 

Damn dude!  I remember that show, it was on after my brothers and I would get home from swim lessons.  Funny to think of ol Ringo having a good bit of brandy sloshing around inside of him while filming that show.  Although glad to hear he got straight.  Maybe not the world's greatest drummer but seemed to be tasteful and never really limited the band at all.  And a seemingly nice guy all around.

He was drining a Heineken, but I was too young to drink: Keith Richards. I was 14 and on vacation in NYC. We saw the play, "Amadeus" and Keith Richards was sitting 2 rows ahead of us. I talked to him a little bit at intermission. A little kid asked him for an autograph and he signed it, "Mozart."

Butch Patrick who played Eddie Munster on the TV show "The Munsters".  He was in Atlanta in the late '80's and showed up at a party that my GF (now wife) was hosting.  A very cool dude.  Said he wasn't making any money from the re-runs of the show and was a little bitter about that.

These are great stories. I don't think I've actually ever met anyone famous. Seen some celebs on the streets of NYC but that's about it.

Had a beer backstage with the legendary Buddy Guy once... at a gig where my band opened up for him.

Dirk Benedict, remember him? Face from the A-Team, he lives in my town. Although he was more interested in my wife and her friend. :D I used to be a chef, and have cooked for many famous people. Does that count? ::)

I sat with Ray Daniels at the NHC dinner last year when he got his award.  That was cool.

I had a couple of beers with Dale Watson the last time he was in town for a show. Pretty nice guy. Full of s*** of course.
I wasn't even in town that day, I swear.
