  • Shelley Fabares - About ten years ago, in Rock Island, Illinois, Shelley Fabares participated in a walk for Alzeimer's awareness (her mother had suffered from Alzeimer's disease). At the conclusion of the walk, she was signing autographs. Most of the people, of course, knew her from her role on "Coach." As she signed my visor, I told her that "most of these people know you as Christine Armstrong, but you'll always be 'Mary Stone' to me" (a reference to her role on the old "Donna Reed Show". She looked up, smiled and said "that's the sweetest thing anybody has said to me today." Sure made my day!

  • Errol Flynn - In January 1959 two friends and I were staying at the Havana Hilton with only 2 other paying customers, Errol Flynn and Beverly Aadland. The top three floors were taken over by Castro and his friends. We were there an an adventure and Flynn was writing an article for the equivalent of the Cuban "Life Magazine". When he was not out riding around in an army jeep, he and Beverly (about as big as a stick!) were in the pool area, she swimming and sunning and Flynn sitting under an umbrella drinking ice tea glasses of vodka in one gulp with no chaser!!! It was really a shame to see his condition and we were sure the end was near!

  • Davy Jones - My wife and I were at EPCOT in the late '90s, and we just happened to be walking along the American Pavilion and saw that a concert would be starting soon. It said Davy Jones would be appearing. I thought that maybe it was just the name of some band or an impersonator. I couldn't imagine that someone as famous as Davy Jones would be doing a free concert at Disney. Well, when the show started it was really him. He stills sings great and is a great entertainer. During an intermission, he walked around and shook hands and spoke with almost everybody in the audience, including us. Then he announced that after the show he would sign all autographs, and some people had even brought Monkees albums for him to sign. If only I had known he was going to be there, I'd have brought my album also. A very nice down to earth guy.

  • Dee Dee Ramone - This happened back in the mid '90s. I was having lunch in an Indian restaurant in the Detroit area. There was only one other person in the place beside myself. I heard this person speak to the waiter in a thick New York accent. He had short, spiked white hair and was wearing purple high-top sneakers. I recognized him immediately. I had read in the paper that Dee Dee was in town to perform at a benefit concert. A short while later as he was leaving I said to him, "Good luck with your new band." He then sat down at my table and told me that this was only a one time gig and that he wasn't intending to keep this band together after the benefit show. We chatted for 10 minutes or so and then he left. Very nice man. Being a huge fan of the Ramones since they started I was in a daze for weeks afterwards. One of the most cherished moments of my life.

  • Richard Burton - I was working at a doctors office on 5th Aveue in New York City. The long and the short of it is I took some X-rays of Richard Burton. I asked him for an autograph for my wife. He wrote Dear Jonnie,I would sign the pictures your husband is taking of me though I doubt the likeness would be very good. Best Wishes, Richard Burton. He seemed like a very nice and down to earth kind of person and it was my honor to have met him.

  • David Lee Roth - Back in 1997 I was invited to the Foxwoods Casino high rollers lounge after a bachelor party to watch the Evander Holyfield fight on closed circuit. I didn't know that DLR was doing a show there that night but one of the guys in our group said, "Hey, isn't that David Lee Roth?" I turned and sure enough, it was. I got up in a shot and went over to see if I could get an autograph. I was quickly met with a very large man standing before me asking my business. I just said I was a fan and would like to meet him. He stood aside and I said, "Hey Dave, I've been a huge fan since Van Halen started and was wondering if I could get an autograph?" He very arrogantly said "Nah, I don't f@#king think so...if I give you one all these f@#kers in here will want one and I don't f@#king feel like doing that." He then turned back around to the bar and the large man stepped in front of me again and said, "I think your business is finished here." My jaw nearly hit the floor! I was astounded that he would do that to a fan. It was a huge let down and it really changed my feelings about the man.

  • Jaclyn Smith - Back in the late '80s-early '90s Jaclyn Smith was promoting her California for Men fragrance at Bloomingdale's in New York City. I had to go there to meet her. I was always a big Charlie's Angels fan and Jaclyn Smith was always my favorite angel. Well, let me tell you....she was as much of an "angel" in real life as well. She graciously signed my cologne box and wrote a personal autograph as well. She even posed for a picture. She was as beautiful, elegant and sweet as I could have ever imagined. She made me feel so special. She has a reputation in Hollywood of being one of the nicest actresses around and that day she proved it wholeheartedly. What a class act!!
