  • Micky Dolenz - I met Micky after a solo concert in Bayonne, NJ in 1991. After the concert he was signing autographs. He seemed to be much more pleasant with the ladies. I asked him if "Circus Boy", the show he was on as a kid might ever be released on VHS, and he basically barked at me, "No, not a chance." At least he was right. I love him as a performer, but meeting him was disappointing.

  • Peter Tork - I met Peter in May of '86, on the 2nd tour date of The Monkees 20th Anniversary concert. He was in a buffet line before the show and I was behind him. I said, "Mr. Tork" and he almost jumped out of his skin. I think he was surprised to be recognized. He turned around and just looked shocked. He got a little looser in the buffet line when he spotted some beets or something and said, "Ooooh, beets!!"

  • Davy Jones - I've met Davy three times. Before I met him, I heard that he could be quite ignorant, especially if he had been drinking. Well, to me, he's been great and a pleasure each time.

  • Eddie Van Halen - Around 1985, after a business meeting with Eddie and his attorney, to discuss the making of a new custom guitar for him, Eddie had to run off to band practice. At this time, he was running late. So he left immediately after the meeting, leaving me and my partner talking to his attorney for a few extra minutes. When we got down to the parking garage, Eddie was there, anxiously trying like hell to get ANY attendant's attention, so he could retrieve his car and still make band practice. Not getting any response from an attendant, he eventually retrieved his own car. Though now VERY late, he still stopped by the passenger loading area, waiting long enough for an attendant to finally show up, whereby he actually APOLOGIZED to the parking attendant for retrieving his own car. He inquired to the man, hoping that he didn't get the attendant in trouble for getting his own car. Exercising a level of courtesy and consideration so sincere for the man's job, like I had never seen before, or since. His humility and down to earth quality was so impressive, I've never forgotten the event. Especially for being the world famous 'Rocker', Eddie Van Halen.

  • Muhammad Ali - While exiting a restaurant in Miami in the '70s, the door was held open by who I thought was the doorman. I said thank you and he said you're welcome. After walking a few feet I turned around and entering the restaurant was the one and only Muhammad Ali. I could not believe it.

  • Larry Hagman - I was receptionist/PBX operator for a luxury condominium bldg. in Beverly Hills. I had to call all residents to tell them they had guests in the lobby. When I asked Mr. Hagman who I should announce him to he was rude, arrogant and not at all pleasant to deal with. This was after "I Dream Of Genie" but before "Dallas."

  • Annette Funicello and the other Mousekeeters - Disneyland in Anaheim had just opened and I was thrilled to be there for my 9th or 10th birthday with my Mom and brother. At the end of a very long "E-Ticket" kind of day we discovered that Mom's car battery was dead. We trudged across the parking lot to the Disneyland Hotel to phone my Dad for help. While waiting for my Dad, we all went out to the hotel playground. To our utter astomishment, there was Annette, Tommy, Cubby, Karen, Darlene and I don't even remember who else. Only the idols of my childhood. Nobody was a bigger Mickey Mouse Club fan than me. We all just played and pushed each other on the swings and were kids together. They were great. Really unaffected, great kids. No 10-year-old could ask for a better birthday present!

  • Robert Vaughn, David McCallum - In 1966, my dad, a writer, managed to get interviews with the two main stars of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", and took me along. We drove to the MGM studio in Culver City, and were escorted to the sound stage where "U.N.C.L.E." was filming. We sat and watched them work on a scene for a while, then there was a break and David McCallum sat down with us. At one point in the interview, he reached over, gave me a friendly slap on the leg, and said "I bet you didn't know that about me, did you?" Next, we went and sat with Robert Vaughn in his small dressing room. He asked if we would mind if he changed clothes, since he had only a few minutes before the next scene. He then stripped to his boxers and shirt and put on different slacks while he answered questions. Both men were very friendly and my youthful image of them as cool heroes was not spoiled one bit.
