    Mainly met a lot of footballers, but my best memory was eating at a restuarant in Knutsford with an ex, and Posh and Becks walk in, then sit at the table right next to us. Had a freindly chat with him about the game (we just lost at home to Liverpool 1-0 that day, he gave the free-kick away for them to score!) Told him not to worry as we'll get the scouse t**ts back, to which he had a giggle.

    I'm not particularly star-struck, but way back in about 1980, Paul McCartney had booked the old Hippodrome in Eastbourne to rehearse his new album. One night, after his session, he & Linda came into the pub nearby for a swift 'un before driving back to Peasmarsh. My brother and I just happened to be there, so we necked a couple with them. Nice people.

    I was out drinking with David R one time...we were well oiled and decided to join my sister and a few of her mates in visiting the local (uber crap) nightclub...
    Through the drink David R saw Sophie Ellis Bextor...
    In the nightclub...

    Only it wasn't...even with David's glasses on...it wasn't. Not even close.

    That's the closest I've come to anyone famous.

    Top of the list has to be...

    Frank Biela
    John Bintcliffe



    Met Nick Park a couple of times too, although only because he went to my school (albeit a while before me) and he reappeared from time to time. I suppose I've met Wallace too, but more on a technicality because his general style and dress sense has to be based on the chap who was head of English there!

    Like sam_20vturbo I've met Armin Van Buuren a couple of times, also Tiesto and Corsten.

    I know a lot of UK Producers/DJs (and a handful in Germany/Netherlands/USA too), but they're more mates and/or people I've done work for/with; so I suppose it'd be cheating to name them! ...Add to that I'd probably be linched for knowing a couple of them given some of their crimes!

    I've known () a couple of dancers/promo girls too over the years, and some of them are sort of celebrities in their other careers ...

    Regards,

    Rob.

    I've met John Bintcliffe too, at Sinclair Audi. Had had a few photos taken with him by the touring car (inside and outside).. and he signed my bum cheek and Audi baseball cap. I asked him where Biele was.. John was not impressed!
