  • Bruce Springsteen - I was showing my 2 cousins around NY City while they were up from Miami for a visit. I brought them to the Museum Of Natural History. We got there early and the museum was pretty empty. As I was looking at one of the polar Bear display, I noticed Bruce Springsteen five feet away from me, looking at the same display! I walked up beside him and said very quietly, "Thanks for your 'Born To Run' album! It helped me get through senior year of High School!"..He smiled and said, "Glad you liked it."....Awesome!

  • Timi Yuro - I met Timi Yuro in my hometown in the Netherlands before she went on stage to sing. Nobody saw her because she was dressed very modest, but I spotted her and gave her flowers. She asked me if I would wait until she was ready singing and so I did. After her performance she came to me and asked if I knew a store where she could buy something nice for her daughter, Milan. I took her to the store and she bought Milan a T-shirt. After that our ways parted because she had to be somewhere else, but she thanked me, and gave me a kiss. Other people took pictures of us together and that is still a great remembrance of a little woman with a great voice.

  • Beverly Sills - My daughter worked at Temple Music Festival in Ambler, PA when she was a teenager. They had all the top name stars appear there, but one really impressed my daughter. That was Beverly Sills. She always greeted the girls in a pleasant way, and by the end of her engagement there she knew most of their names. Not every star was as gracious as Ms. Sills.

  • Gene Hackman - My wife and I were tired newlyweds after a flight from San Francisco to John Wayne Airport in LA. We waited outside the terminal for a shuttle bus to take us to our hotel near Disneyland. I don't know why, but there was no one else around in the area we were waiting. It was amazingly devoid of people. I was standing sleepily at a curb as a bus pulled up. It wasn't ours, but just then a man and woman walked within inches of my face. He was so close that he stepped on part of my shoe. I almost yelled at the guy for being so rude until I looked at the man sitting down in the bus all to himself and his pretty Asian significant other. Gene Hackman! I love him! I figured he'd be picked up in a limo instead of some stinky old shuttle bus. Well, I always rolled my eyes when I heard my friends talk about being starstruck, thought they were fawning idiots. But: "Did you see who that was!" I whispered excitedly to my wife. "Gene Hackman!" "No way," my wife said. I motioned for her to take a peek into the bus. "Oh, my God, it's him!" "Yeah, he just walked in front of me, and I was going to tell him what a jerk he was, but then...blah, blah, blah..." So I had become a starstruck idiot, too. I almost bothered him for an autograph but I chickened out because he gave me a look as if he wanted to be left alone. I always wondered, though, why he got into my space so I'd notice him. Actors!

  • Julio Iglesias - I was 14 years old, living in a country in the Third World and I was already part of the working class. I was working in the Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City, when at one of the tables at our restaurant I saw him...yes...Julio Iglesias himself. Seemed like he just got there because there were only about 4 people around him...I walked by his side and observed how his fans were asking for his autograph. He looked into my eye...then after a brief silence he asked me if I wanted his autograph, too. I smiled and replied, "Yes sir." He said, 'Don't call me sir..just Julio' then I said: "Thank you Julio" and he grabbed a napkin, with a blue ink marker wrote: "From Julio, enjoy life, live happy" (in Spanish). I don't know what I did with that napkin, I just think he was very polite in offering his autograph and briefly interacting with me on that day. I am 45 now, I wish to meet Shakira, that South American goddess. Yes sir :) (lol)

  • Art Linkletter - I was working for a car rental company at the airport in San Diego. Long story short, it was raining very hard (in San Diego can you believe it?) and I'm about to park a car and this car pulls up in front of me and I'm ticked off because I have to get out of the car as the other driver got out and apparently has a question for me. Well it was Art Linkletter and he asked me "Sir, can you tell me where we go to park this rental return?" Here he is talking to this 22 year old kid in an Avis shirt and he was so polite, a total gentleman and a nice guy.

  • Betsy Palmer - I was on my way from Elmira, N.Y. to Bottineau, North Dakota via train and by way of Chicago and Minneapolis. A winter storm was blowing and after leaving Chicago on the Northern Pacific, I realized the attractive lady across the aisle was very familiar. Her brown brief case bore the initials B.P. I asked if she was Betsy Palmer. She said,"YES, but don't let it get around"! She was headed to St. Paul for the Winter Carnival and her flight had been grounded by the storm.I always thought she was pretty on "I've Got A Secret". In person, she was just as beautiful!

  • Anthony Zerbe - My girlfriend and I were talking one day about how we had never written fan letters before and we each decided to write a fan letter to our favorite actor. I wrote to Anthony Zerbe. I didn't ask for anything - just told him how much I enjoyed his work. Imagine my surprise when a couple weeks later, he called me on the phone and thanked me for my letter! He also told me about a stage show that he does with Roscoe Lee Browne and a couple years later I was able to see the show in Las Vegas.
