    Especially as I have also sat at the same table as Quentin Tarrentino outside a pub.

    I served John Squires and a lady their tea one night. I very nearly asked if she banged the drums.

    My printer was in a band who played a gig with Pulp as the support act.

    I've already mentioned the Manics connection a few million times so I shan't repeat meself. :biggrin:

    What? A piece of equipment attached to your computer played in a band?

  12. My most tenuous claim to fame - let me see if I can get this right - is that some people I used to be friends with have a daughter, whose friend at the time I knew them had a boyfriend whose uncle was Nigel Pegrum, who played the drums for Steeleye Span.

    My band have supported the Oysterband and (almost) Chumbawamba and Fairport Convention. Oh, and John Otway.

    My brother was once accused of being "a pisshead" by none other than Shane MacGowan.

    Beat that!:biggrin:

    James Herriott has been round our house for tea. A few years ago obviously.

    I met Public Enemy coming out of a hotel in Sydney on emorning after I had been out drinking all night. I asked Flavor Flav if he had the time. I guess you had to be there, and had to be as pissed as I was. (and you'd also have to know who he was and why asking if he had the time would be in the slightest bit amusing to a pissed teenager - and he was wearing "it" at the time, no pun intended)
