    You know, your uncle's aunty shagged the singer from Sigue Sigue Sputnik, or something like that...

    Well, my mum didn't do that, but she once nursed Alexander Fleming when he had a dicky ticker, and she also nursed David Bowie's brother (schizophrenic, commited suicide in mid -80s).

    As for moi, well, Ara Darzi fixed my hernia in 1993! :biggrin:

    I went out with a girl who had a penpal in New Mexico (although they had never actually met) who was the girlfriend of Michael Stipes' (of REM) cousin.

    I have also met a few minor pop stars from my student-gig promoting days.

    An ex-girlfriends mum used to date the lead singer from The Troggs.

    Had golfer, and sometime actor, Sean Connery buy a round of drinks for my family and friends. I was thirteen, and my father wouldn't let him buy me a lager!

    He was in a band called Cornershop. One-hit-wonder-shoe-gazing-indie-types.

    I don't think she was THE "wild thing" but she was a stunner. MILF I think they call it don't they?

    I went to a Gary Glitter concert when I was under 18 and can still walk tall. Not many can claim that.

    In fact thinking about it, I really have been rubbing shoulders with the great and the good. Why am I not on some z-list celebrity show already?
