Trailer Park Boys then you know Mr. Lahey and Randy!

Wow, this is something I could write volumes on. I grew up with A.C. Farley being my first employer, at a small comic store, he was an artist for Mirage back in its heyday. I also know Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird, and most of the other guys from Mirage. I've met and worked closely with Todd McFarlane, I was the curator for his Retrospective at the MoCCA during the first New York Comic Con. I met Jim Lee and Eric Larsen, and had a great conversation with both during the exhibit. I've interviewed Kanye West in person (he was a dick), I've also interviewed Lamb of God (they were highly intelligent and awesome, got to hang with them backstage for hours after they played with Megadeth). I've met countless other musicians when I was a music reviewer. I used to party with the Bloodhound Gang, I was friends with their Agent and they were awesome, Evil Jared makes some hardcore hooch. I've only been "starstruck" once and that was meeting Mike Ness, my biggest idol. That shook me.
I've also met countless comic artists and hung out with them in various settings since I work at the MoCCA and hung with Farley.
One of my favorite meetings was a couple years ago. A good friend of mine moved to Cali, well he called me two days before Halloween and asked if I wanted to go see Danzig. I did. He used to be a roadie fora bunch of the old school rockers and punks. Well I got to do the whole super VIP stuff and met both Danzig and Doyle, they were both dicks.
The next night though I went with him to see the Misfits, Jerry Only, Robo, and Dez and we hung with them backstage with their families for hours before and after the show, they were super nice and welcoming. To say thanks I drew them a pic, which my buddy Sky had copied so each member could have one, they sent me the original signed saying they couldn't figure out who should get it since there is three of them and only one original. It now proudly hangs in my living room.
Them with the pic in their trailer in Cali, Sky took the pic.

There have been countless encounters at cons or personal appearances with random people, but as far as actual meetings...
In retail I helped a couple of random celebrities/athletes, I can only remember the woman who played the little girl on Bewitched though.
My son's uncle played for the Broncos with Elway.
There are more I can't think of, but the 2 most notable happened when I was too young to know what was going on, and I've only recently recalled them.
Before an assembly in school, I must have been 7 or so, a teacher was hastily tugging me towards the school auditorium before an assembly on fire safety. For some reason, it seemed really important to her that I come and meet the guest speaker, David Prowse, the guy who played Darth Vader. I had never shown any interest in Star Wars to her, so I have no idea why. My older brother was pissed that he didnt meet him.
When I was really little, Mr. Spock showed up at my house in Old Philadelphia. He was friends with our neighbors, and they jus brought him over.
In tha same house, although I didnt see this guy myself, we werent allowed to leave through the front door for a while because Leslie Nielsen was filming a commercial on our front step for some reason.

Famous people I have met......hmmmmm.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and then Fergie on the same day. Plenty of WWE personalities. Billy West, he was a REALLY nice guy, funny too!
There's been a few more, but those were the most memorable.
