I figured there was a cute story attached to that meeting. I've only met the singer Mac Davis. I'm not sure if anyone even remembers him now but he was pretty popular back in 1974 when I met him at the San Francisco International Airport. More accurately, my mom met him when she asked for his autograph for me. I peeked out from behind my dad and Mac winked at me. Then we all flew to Buffalo where we saw him again. LOL




She was gorgeous!



From Lubbock Texas!  Of course I remember Mac Davis.  He had a big crossover hit with Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me.

Aside from my good fortune in being able to do phone interviews with a number of great musicians as part of my job with a newspaper - I've mentioned a few before - I've had a few in-the-flesh brushes with fame through the years...

Timothy Leary
Bill Graham
XTC (all band members)
David Byrne

In each case a few words were exchanged and a modicum of weirdness characterized the moment.

There have probably been more, but the data bank cranks slowly. That damn dentist.

 :P

LOL So does mine because that last statement went over my head until Barry posted the Beatoons video. I knew it was a reference I should get but the info wouldn't quite load in my brain.

Mostly, I've been fortunate enough to meet mostly sports figures but here's a few of the musical folks:

Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, and all the members of my favorite "current" band Walk Off The Earth.

I also couldn't pass up including a photo of the back of Ringo's head and Mark Rivera's back as they were entering the venue. I told this story previously but this is when Ringo turned around and flashed a Peace sign at me after I called out to him and said "Hey, Ringo! Peace and Love!"
