Who's the most famous person you've ever met?

Happy Joe

Apprentice Geezer
Probably Bob Hope,
Was in a bar once when O.J. Simpson walked in (he obviously just wanted a quiet beer) but his hangers on kept trying to entertain him; actually felt sorry for the guy. Left him alone, didn't impose myself on him.

Enjoy!

I shared an elevator in a hotel once with Bob Hope.
I couldn't believe how short he was!

I met and actually kind of "igged" Jackie Wilson at Lloyd Price's Turn Table in N.Y.C. I also met and had a nice chat backstage with my crush at the time, Pervis Jackson of The Spinners when they appeared at The Cheetah in N.Y. I met Cuba Gooding, Sr. at a jazz club in Montclair, N.J. He told me I had pretty lips...but then again he was pretty high. 😅 I responded earlier in the thread that I'd met Sydney Poitier. He was walking around the Montreal Expo 67 by himself. Just found the photo I took which didn't come out so well because I was trying to hurry and take it.

OK, I'll bite, what does "igged" mean?

Cool! Or should I say "Kool"! :D My husband's best friend was good friends with Kool. When my husband and I were heading off to vacation one time, he asked us to drop him off at Kool's house which was in another city located in the direction we were traveling. We didn't go in with him so I never met Kool. That same friend later moved to PA. When we went to visit him there, he had just opened a restaurant in the same block as his apartment. He took us there, showed us around and told us that Bon Jovi was helping to revitalize that neighborhood. He met with Bon Jovi (a Jersey boy too) and was subsequently told if he needed any help to just call.

I should add that though I never met him in person, I talked on the phone with Al Goodman of Ray, Goodman & Brown (formerly The Moments). I was considering writing an article about RG &B for this entertainment e-magazine my friend publishes. He and my husband were very good friends. I would have been able to meet him, the rest of his group and The Manhattans if I wasn't sick the night Al and his wife hosted a party. at their house. My husband had to go without me. Before I got a chance to interview him for the article, Al went to the hospital for what was supposed to be a minor surgery and died in the hospital.
