Celebrities you've met...

Post by Damien Thorn » Sat Nov 06, 2010 3:29 pm

I just thought of this topic when I was reading about the silly antics of a deranged Hollywood actor...

Which celebrities have you met, and how were they in real life?

Cheerio,

Wow, you've been in the presence of divinity! I would consider Ronnie James Dio the greatest Voice in Rock History, bar none...

A little tribute to Ronnie James:

Angelina Jolie some time in 2003. She was cool and had a very sexy accent plus she was going about with her girlfriend and no visible bodyguards or whatever. Also Kate Moss - don't really remember date - but she's boring as fuck. And not particularly attractive.

Years ago, Geoff Tate from Queensryche was practically my next door neighbor. I once saw him in a park but didn't realize it was him until weeks later. :lol:

I hear he used to judge the Battle of the Bands at the local high school....

Bill Sheehan...

Post by Damien Thorn » Mon Nov 08, 2010 2:10 pm

I met Billy Sheehan once, at a very cool bass clinic.

Image

(... the one on the left...)

He was a very funny and accessible guy and showed us how to work miracles on the bass. This guy is fantastic, so I was going to test his confidence a bit...

I walked up to him after the clinic to get my Mr. Big CD's signed. So, I thought I'd be clever and said, "just remember to put an arrow over your head, so I know which one is you..." I thought he'd see I was kidding (because everybody knows Billy, right? He's the greatest rock bass player alive and is up there with guys like Pastorius), but he still seemed ever so slightly thrown by my smart-ass comment. He quickly recovered though and said he would sign an extra picture for my sister. Rock humour...

:lol:

Check out this online clinic on Youtube:

Haha, even though I'm pretty sure she's bi-curious at least I meant her female companion.

I've learning British english for almost 15 years, and there a girlfriend is a girlfriend, not a girl-friend ;)

Glenn Hughes is great. I just listened to that song "Why don't you stay" of his (which features half of Europe's band members), and it struck me how effortless his singing seems. He hits incredibly high notes without any strain and with amazing power... and of course he's a bass player too. On top of that, he started out in Deep Purple, a band without whom Rainbow, Malmsteen and - ultimately - Stratovarius wouldn't have existed in their current form. Respect!

Listen to that vocal:
