I saw the werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's one night.

His hair was perfect.

Funny, the reason I started this thread was after seeing Ryan Stiles and guess what? He came into my work again today! My husband says he lives here in Bellingham part time. It's even more funny to me that he comes into this restaurant of all places, I think the food looks better than it tastes. It's nothing special.

Probably the most-known I've had contact with is Eddie Van Halen. Back in the 80's, I was helping out backstage at a NAM convention and I literally had to walk him down the stairs, as he was too inebriated. Also there, had conversations with Billy Idol, Jeff Beck, and most big hair bands, such as Ratt and Poison. I remember members of Warrant and Guns N Roses begging my friends and I to come see them play the late shows when we'd hang on the strip in Hollywood. I went to high school with (and had choir with) the guys from Toad the Wet Sprocket. . My sister had many classes in high school with Kathy Ireland, Eric Stoltz, and in her madrigal singing group, one of the 8 girls would always bring her boyfriend to all the get togethers. That was Anthony Edwards. (Tony to all of the kids) I've run my fingers through the mane of John Travolta (when I was a hairdresser), my dad built his screening room too, as well as working on Kenny Loggins' and Jimmy Messina's houses. Actually, he knew all the celebs in our town, but since he never went to movies, he never knew who they were.
We'd see celebs quite often, but never bothered to speak to them, since it was a pretty common occurrance. Although, I will admit, about 10 years ago, when Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid were sitting behind me with their son at "Sesame Street Live", I did have to chat with them at intermission. My h meets up with celebs, as they are at his work often. Recently he spent the afternoon with Ed McMahon. Of course, I wanted to know if he brought him the big check and the balloon bouquet....hee hee......
My son currently goes to school with the child of a very famous rock star. It's very nice to see him driving in his family SUV and waving "bye" each morning.

Of course, I see more "celebrity" in the thought of meeting fellow DCers!
So far, I'm at 1 and counting....
