Writer's Block: Close Encounters of the Celebrity Kind

Have you ever met a celebrity in real life? Who was it and how did your paths cross?

Several, actually; mostly writers (at Conventions), and a number of America artists, most notably my buddy Dave Insley, Dale Watson, guitar god Pete Anderson, and Mark Stuart; all of them were met at their gigs, usually--I met Dave at the Rhythm Room and got to know him pretty well before he moved to Austin (we still keep in touch on MySpace); Dale I met at the Cajun House, where he was the gentleman and called Triple-A for me when I locked my keys in my truck; Mark I met at the Rhythm Room, while I first met Pete Anderson when he was playing for Dwight Yoakam, and have talked to him many times, both while he was with the Babylonian Cowboys and then later when he was touring with Moot Davis (whom I've also met). Pete always remembers me and once introduced me to someone else as a "local journalist." That was pretty cool. I've also met Jesse Dayton and Roger Wallace, Troy Olsen, and Cody Canada.
