    Never meet your heroes. When I was a kid we had a popular state wide children's show. The Ranger Andy show, which had a live audience. Well finally I went with my Cub scout group to be in the audience, a big thrill - what an SOB, he was mean, physical with booze on his breath. But when we went live he was all smiles! Maybe he was just having a bad day...

    I don't know, I always thought Gary Senise was a great guy, and I met him, and.... you know what? He really was amazingly calmly friendly and decent!

    Also, Brian Kilmeade - met him at the Alamo doing a photo shoot - he came over and shot the breeze with us.

    Oh, and the Dirty Jobs guy -- he is EXACTLY like he is on TV!

    Not sure. But I can tell you I met William Shatner once at a Comi Con. He was not that nice of a guy, and he wanted $75 for an autograph.

    I've met a lot of pro baseball players and a very small number of them weren't as nice as can be. Tom Glavine, who is a friend of my brother's, went to talk to my niece's class back when she was still a young'un in Elementary school and gave all the kids autographed baseball cards -- and not just those in her class but the whole school.

    I'm always still in trouble again

    He just seems like such a... I don't know... wretched person sometimes.

    I got a photo taken with Robert Englund of Freddy Kruger/Nightmare on Elm Street fame. Dude totally knew how to work a crowd. EXTREMELY charismatic, and as I awkwardly attempted to figure out how to pose with him and a pal of mine, he gave both of us friendly stage direction, and the photo came out great (I don't physically look that good in it, but that's not his fault). I got the sense he was performing, and so it might not be the same thing as meeting him in real life, but it seems like he really likes working the crowd.

    Right before the Might Mighty Bosstones got somewhat popular, I made it onto their tour bus and played Nintendo with one of the band members.

    Certain bands can be complete jerks or totally amazing. Michael Gira of the Swans shot me daggers when I asked for a poster behind him, not realizing that he didn't help sell his own posters, he only signed them. Dick Lucas of Subhumans and Ian MacKaye of Fugazi (popular bands in the underground punk scene) are extremely friendly. After playing really intense and long sets, they stuck around long after the show, and just mingled with the crowd, and tried to talk to as many people as they could. You can tell they just really love connecting with people, and are totally anti-big shot snobbery.
