Figured I'd go ahead and tell my stories, I only just mentioned the two celebrities I actually met.
Little Jimmy Dickens- I was at the Kansas City airport with my dad to pick my brother up and saw an old man in a cowboy hat standing outside with his
bags. My dad said "That's Little Jimmy Dickens." I didn't believe him and told him he was going to embarrass that guy but he went up to him
anyway. Turns out it really was him! That guy is really short, hence the name. He was a really nice guy who I'm pretty sure was more excited that we
recognized him than we were that we'd me him! We talked to him for about 15 minutes till his car came to pick him up.
When I was going to Navy Electronics School in Great Lakes, I got volunteered to help set up for the the 4th of July celebration. I was driving fence
posts for the VIP area and it was really hot. A guy walked up with a cooler and asked if I wanted some water, when I looked up it was Gary Sinise! He
was there with the Lt. Dan Band to do a concert. He was a nice guy, I was surprised that he was only about 5'8 and I towered over him ( I'm only
6'0). He asked me where I was from and I talked to him for a good 45 minutes. He was a pretty nice guy.
When I was in Sonar school in San Diego some friends and I went up to Hollywood one night, we decided to go up to Beverly Hills. We were sitting at a
stop light when a new red Ferarri stopped next to us. I looked over and saw the guy driving was Nicolas Cage. I yelled "Hey, you're Nicolas Cage!"
and he said "Yeah, what's up guys?" Then we got into a drag race with him that we lost. I didn't list him before because we didn't really meet
him, just saw him in the car next to us and exchanged a few words.
I saw Paris Hilton outside of a club in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego, but wasn't very interested in her so I didn't get any closer.
Oh, I met Billy Gibbons from ZZTop once after a concert in Miami, Ok. He was in line at Charlie's Chicken and I talked to him for a bit, he was a
pretty nice guy. I didn't want to bother him too much though as he'd just done a show and looked pretty tired.
