Meetings with Famous People

Postby Sis. Ali » Tue Jan 18, 2005 6:01 pm

Heya folks...hope everyones hunky dory...

In the tradition of the board, started by Mr Reel.....

The followiong seen since I started working on the Tube:

Darcus Howe, at Stockwell Station, having a problem with his ticket through the gates and asking me the way to Brixton...

Claire Short coming through Clapham North station (she lives in a huge gaff round the corner)

Lee Jasper, (Ken Livingstone's race advisor at the GLA), again at Clapham North. He chased away a gang of troublesome kids for me and introduced his son "if he ever gives you any trouble let me know"....(aaah wouldn't that make you cringe as a kid eh ! :lol:

Tony Benn walking along the platform at Bank, on the central Line going West....

and finally....

Chris Evans and friend lolling on some chairs outside a furniture store at Camden Lock..


:D

Love

      Last February on an open day the London College of Fashion with daughter and wife, Rik Mayall sat almost right behind me in the presentation auditorium - he was there with wife and daughter.

      Early Friday evening last March, while waiting outside the Hammersmith Ram (formerly the Builders) in King St. for Dave Home, almost fell over Bill Bailey - looked like he was on his way home froma supermarket :)

      Last June on Acton Green had a chat with Marcus Downie (of No. 1 Station) at the Green Day fair just before their excellent live set :)

      Last July on Kew Green, legendary funsters Ant & Dec seen enjoying a beer with a small group outside the Greyhound pub :)

      December 2004 - brushed shoulders with Wendy Richard (Pauline Fowler in Eastenders) while making my way out of John Lewis in Oxford St. :)

      :idea: I have it on good authority that all of the above luminaries speak very highly of me :roll: :? :? :shock:
      If it don't turn you on, you oughtta leave it alone!!

      Was at a Shaka dance a few years back when my friend drew my attention to the man mountain Lenox Lewis who was standing 2 feet behind me with half a dozen minders.

      Always makes me laugh that guys like Lennox Lewis need minders! :D

      Then again I can understand it, if he chinned a regular punter himself he'd probably kill him....

      Many famous people I have met. I used to work at rehersal studios in London:

      Kylie Minoque (Phoarr!), REM, Black Crows, Blah, blah... I also toured Europe with Usher. Also met the PM of NZ since moving here.

      ... Oh yeah and best of all... InI Oneness and The UK Players kipped at my place when I lived in Perth, Scotland.

      Trumpet blowing, big up etc!
