    I've met quite a few celebrities over the years
    When I was in Little League, we had Cleon Jones and Tommy Agee as our featured guests.
    When I was in the Navy, we had Fergie Jenkins, Graig Nettles, and another player I can't remember come for a ship visit and signed autographs and talked with the crew. Great guys, really appreciative.
    I met Dee Snider several times (and the rest of the band too a couple of times). Always very cool to talk with.
    At one of the casinos I worked at, I've met Zach Brown (of the Zach Brown band). Possibly the nicest guy you can ever meet. He used to walk around backstage and bullshit with everyone and anyone, no matter who you were.
    Kenney Chesney is quite possibly the 2nd nicest person you will ever meet.
    Phil Savage, of Def Leppard, was an ass
    Gwen Stefani was horrible. She screamed and yelled at everyone as they were unloading the trucks to set up the show.
    DJ Ashba (of GnR) was very cool
    Nikki Sixx was pretty nice to talk to.

    Another casino I worked for had David Cassidy's Celebrity Golf Tournament at their golf course (Cassidy was the resident show, with Sheena Easton, at the time) and met several celebrities there. Me and a friend were working the Hole In One hole, so, they would all come over to us and bs with us for a bit.
    Vince Neil was a pompous ass. Walked his flabby ass up to us like he was the king of the world and says "I bet you know who I am?". My buddy says "No". Well this kind of shocked him. Says he was the singer in a Heavy Metal band, Motley Crue. Friend says never heard of them. So, Vince says he must not listen to Heavy Metal. My friend replied that he listened to Priest, Maiden, Kiss, etc. Vince says "well, we are just as good as those guys". My buddy told him if they were any good, he would have heard of them. I though Vince was gonna have a stroke.
    Also met Wendy Jo Sperber (the fat girl from Bosom Buddies). She wanted us to lie and say she hit a hole in one, so, she could win the car. John Byner tried to be funny, but, wasn't asked what he would get if he knocked the ball in on his next shot. I told him minus 1 on the score card. He got pissed. The Principal, from Saved by the Bell, was really cool guy.

    Also met Randall Cunninham a few times. Very nice guy.

    Just a few of the run ins I have had.

    I've heard the same about Kenny Chesney. He does a concert in my town every year and a lot of friends have met him.

    I met Brodeur in a chipotle when he had the bum arm for a bit. He was a dick, but nice enough to take a pic

    I spent 10 seasons producing the SF 49ers television show from 2005-2014. In addition to the players and access I had, I met some cool celebs. Chris Isaak was a really cool cat. He played halftime at a game and after our interview Chris, his drummer and myself talked music for awhile. Also met Alyssa Milano through the 49ers. As a kid of the 80's I had such a crush on her. She was really cool and we hit it off. I thought I had a chance with her for a second.

    Also met Harry Kalas a year before he died. Great guy. I listened to him for years growing up a Phillies fan and produce a segment for the show and interviewed Harry. Still my favorite celeb meeting. While my crew set up the lights and cameras, Harry and I watched batting practice and he said "Well Jay, what do you think of this year's team?" He had that smooth voice and he was so genuine. That was May 2008 and the Phillies won the World Series that fall. He died the following spring.

    As for Will and Grace, I was standing in line at the dry cleaners in Studio City CA in 2004 and in walks Will from Will and Grace. My only celeb sighting I had the year I lived in LA.

    Mike Eruzione was at a hockey camp when I was a kid - biggest dickhead Ive ever met. He was being an ass to 10 year olds.

    Drank with Brian McGratton a few times when I was in college.

    Ron Duguay got pissed at me during a Rangers viewing party because he thought I was hitting on a chick he was going for (she just happened to be the one passing me free drinks). He was legit pissed, too. My brother in law always talks about it.

    Random celebrity/athlete run ins always happen when I'm in the city - a friend picked up Justin Timberlakes cellphone (handed it back) when we were crossing paths, see random guys out to eat all the time. Shouldnt seem like big deal to people that live there.

    Also grew up playing against a bunch of current/past NHLers, so those stories dont count.

    My brother in law ran into Wayne Gretzky in an airport. He had just started dating my sister and was traveling back to NY from Phoenix. He knew my sister liked hockey and bought a Gretzky plaque. When he saw him in the airport he asked Wayne to sign it... he had to dig through his bags to find the plaque, said it took (what seemed like) 5 minutes, and the entire time Wayne was telling him to calm down, relax, take your time. He then personalized it and wrote a nice note about teaching kids (she was a teacher at the time)

    I see Louie CK almost weekly, he lives a few blocks from my office and walks his daughter to school every morning while I'm walking to the office.

    Mac, Hayes, Skjei, and Vesey all live in the area as well, occasionally see them on the train.
