Mostly musicians/people in bands. Friend of mine was seeing the editor of a heavy metal magazine at the time so he used to get us into gigs n stuff for free.
Lemmy from Motorhead was the most memorable

Asides from that...

Lorna Wing and Judith Gould (people who translated Hans Aspergers work into English and got the diagnosis into the DSM IV ICD 10 and the Triad of impairment concept)

John Bercow, Speaker of the house of commons. Helped him find his ride home after an autism conference he was speaking at a few years ago.

Baroness Emerton, went to see her at the house lords about people with AS working in the nursing profession. with some other nurses

Ray Mears, He was signing copies of his book at a presentation he did in Derby

If I actually turned up to my graduation ceremony at uni I'd of met Sean Bean

I've met many actors & actresses over the years, most encounters I'd rather not describe because they were so embarrasing.

Most actors & actresses that I have met were in Portland doing promotions for whatever they were involved with and the last encounters I had were about two years ago. I'm glad I haven't had any since.

I sold a bottle of Pepto Bismal to Howard K. Smith when I worked in a drugstore 20 years ago. If you dont know the name- some years before that he was a big long time TV anchor like Dan Rather- who competed with Walter Cronkite back in the day. He looked rather palid too when he bought it too.

Met other famous people while in retail.

I sold a bag of processed film to a sister of Aretha Franklin- she showed me some of the pics- her and her sister at the white house. Later learned that Aretha's sisters sang as her back up on many of her hit records. So the lady whom I meet is on tracks in my record collection herself.

A few a days ago I kinda 'met' another kinda 'celeb' .

Last week while online I stumbled upon a live video sex performer site. The lady performing was none other than Amy Fisher. She was not really 'in person' meeting with me- but she on this interactive website -with a small audience that happened to include me for a minute or two. And I couldve signed up for a private online session with her.

She was talking and responding to tweets- and boasted about being a professional porn star. I realized that OMG -that girl is THE amy fisher- I recognize her- now almost middle aged. She was that teen girl who seduced Joey Buttafucco, and then shot Joey Buttafucco's wife- that whole nasty tabloid scandal- the "Long Island Lolita". I could have a conversation with her right now- If I wanted too. But I clicked the red dot and left the site.

On a different note- years ago my sister the photographer got to do a function at the whitehouse and met the president. When she told me about it I was blase'. But then she mentioned in passing that she also got to meet David Attenborough ( the nature film guy on PBS shows) at this event.

Later she got to meet him again for the second part of this event- and she mentioned that "my brother yawned when I told him i met the president, but he got exciteted when I told him I meet YOU." Attenboro almost blushed -he was so flattered. And my sister delivered an autographed copy of David Attenboro's "Life On Earth" to me. Pretty cool.

I've met Temple Grandin. I got to hear her speak about a year ago. My whole family went because we have two people in the autism spectrum in my family. I really enjoyed it and would suggest it if anyone ever got the chance.

Which Bozo the Clown? Bozo was a character Larry Harmon, Bozo's creator, franchised in several TV markets. For example, the late Stu Kerr played Bozo on Baltimore's WMAR-TV for many years.

I've never in my life met anyone who is famous world-wide. I have, though, met a few Finnish politicians and said a couple of words to them.

I've met astronauts, Dr. Temple Grandin. J.K. Rowling came to my elementary school for a day. I have met senators, the governor of Texas and even Formula 1 drivers. I got to sit in Fernando Alonso's Ferrari when I was at the US Grand Prix last year.
