Should have got a pic with Harrison and the standie, LOL....
We had a strict no bothering Celebrities policy, we would get atleast 3-4 a day, minor to major.
It was standard Policy anyone who bothered them would be fired, we were the Highest Profile store in the company due to how near all the studios
It was fun, Got tons of funny stories from those days, we had to put on Shows as well for Artist the company promoted.
Had some signed crap from publicity stuff we did, but nothing I could get on my own volition,
Shatner and Nimoy where at the store for a signing awhile ago (back when the Osbornes were first on tv and Saint anger by metallica was just out...
How I remember it by what we where getting in) They hate each other, they wouldn't look at one another and we had to talk to them through a mediator,
we couldn't address them both at the same time.
Michael Bolton was another that had to come in to promote, funniest of all because NO ONE SHOWED UP, and he was on a tare about it cussing us all
Had a nice long chat with the Lead singer of Hoobastank with out knowing who he was, talked about Xbox and such. He asked me if I was a fan of the
band that was going to play my response was less than glowing, he laughed, and shook my hand. Cool guy.
Lots of cool stories but nothing to show for it, Harrison ford and Lucas, where probably the two hardest for me NOT to fan boy out on, No cell phone
cam at the time was worth it. I would of loved to be able to geek out on them and not get fired.
Harrison ford walked by, and I saw him glance in, I did a double take and he slowly walked back in the Store, WE had a HUGE DVD display with Indy on
it. He looked it over, looked at the DVD's than looked at me and gave me a thumbs up.
Han f-ing solo Thumbed up me, Highlight of that job.
