Jerry Seinfeld before he was famous. He was engaged to my cousin and I met him at my uncle's home. Also, Eric Burdon this past July. We were staying at the same hotel and I ran into him in the lobby. I complimented him on the show and he put his hand on my shoulder and said "thanks mate."

I also forgot one. I ran lights for, and met, Stevie Wonder. Now, mind you, his daughter (yes, Aisha) went to my high school.

...and of course plenty of us had seen Michael Bolotin (later to become Michael Bolton) playing in clubs throughout CT

My god..How could I forget...Kenny Rogers...Had dinner with him and his band in a Mexican restaurant in Dallas Tx. He was with the First Edition at the time. He is a real kook, but a friendly guy.
My son and I shared a post show meal with Richie Havens. What a terrifically gentle soul!

Not me, but a guy I worked for used to frequent Mohegan, and loaned Manute Bol $200 one night. Manute gave him his card, wrote IOU $200 on the back ad signed it, took Herb's card and promptly lost the money in five minutes at a blackjack table. Shrugged his shoulders and left, telling Herb he would send him the money the next week.

He didn't and he passed just a few months later.

Herb ended up selling the card to a sports memorabilia collector for (I think it was) fifty bucks.

With my 3 high school friends chatted with Carly Simon in Vineyard Haven summer of '78 waiting for hubby James Taylor who picked her up in a yellow cab. She was 33, with a warm personality, memorable voice and a lovely sight.

I saw Ivan Putski wrestle Jesse The Body at Stamford High on Polish Night. Guess who won? But The Body deserved it, he only had one move; choking Putski with the tag team rope that just happened to be attached one match too early
Waq, you're from Stamford? If that was around 1976 I was there as well (Putski was among the bigger names at that event). I think Superstar Billy Graham was the biggest name that night.

I was fortunate to meet Sir John Mills and his wife, along with the new appointed Governor of Australia and wife while sailing from Southampton, England to Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. back in the 70's. They sat at my table, and this was when he was preparing to film a movie in the USA with Lee Marvin and Jane Fonda. Also as a 9yr., I met Mamie Eisenhower, her chauffer had to gas up the Limo at my parent's Gas Station & Restaurant in Groton on the day of the Nautilus launch. She had to use our restroom. Interesting I don't remember seeing any secret service agents with her. And now the season is awaiting us GO HUSKIES! Mrs. Dribbles
