 Famous People You Have Met ; Who be they?

Post #1 - 11 Sep 2019, 19:42

I have a few, but yesterday I was chatting to a good friend at work, Sam originally from Kenya. I was telling him about my time in Kenya when I was the Scottish Director of a charity working there as barman for a bunch of mercenaries. I recalled that in 1999 soon after I arrived on a visit I met the President of Kenya, Daniel Arap Moi. He had heard that I was coming and had asked to meet me, which we did in his offices in Nairobi. He asked about Scotland and the UK and the meeting concluded with a prayer (said by the padre) asking God to bless my visit. Moi was a fucking God-botherer.

Sam told me that Moi later lost favour with the Kenyan people due to allegations that he was favouring the people of his own tribe. A common occurrence in Kenya he said.

I met Ronald McDonald in 1974 aged 10. He was going through his Diamond Dogs era. :heart:

As a reclusive deeply religious person, I've been privileged to meet several fine upstanding celebrities.

There was Jimmy Savile, Gary Glitter, Rolf Harris (he was amusing), Stuart Hall, Max Clifford, Jonathan King (in my formative years), Noel Edmunds, Fred Talbot....to name but a few.

I wasn't allowed the photo shoot, but our cardinal was.

I once met Jarvis Cocker outside the library in Sheffield. I told him that my house also has woodchip on the wall. He told me to fuck off.

I have just got off the phone from Stephen Wright, Manchester black and white photographer.

He was aggrieved that I had phoned him so late (10 pm).

He said that his daughter had just comes home from Cambodia and had breast cancer.

He is no longer part of my plans for my upcoming exhibition.

Some people never go crazy. What truly horrible lives they must lead.

Stills from a very important film of our modern age.;

I' saw Noel Gallagher in a Belsize Park pub in Autumn 1998. The anodyne bass player was also there, i seem to remember...

I have a compatriot Liam Gallagher lookalike who was stalking the real LG at the time, but we were not together, on that occasion. :)

Quite right, I hope you told the selfish cunt. 10 pm isn't that late. :angry:

I'm a bit pissed but that is possibly the worst video I've ever seen. Is that that Gumbies in the background?

I agree the video is a 'fiasco'. That Cocker limey sure ripped off one of our bestest cocaine- addicted pop singers, though.

I am already very pisseds. Think i'll skip dinner.

Don't know about the 'Gumbles', sorry.

Take care, mein Koeinigin.

No more editing, on this pointless post. :party2:

The late MES dressed worser on occasion,s if i remember :banana2:

I telephoned Stephen Wright last night.

He of the Smiths iconic photograph outside the Salford Lads Club.

(I would post an image but it doesn't work on this site) :angry:

I got the number from his website where he plies his trade.

It was 10pm. Apparently too late for him. He said that his daughter had just got home from Cambodia and has been diagnosed with breast cancer and why was I bothering him.

I said it was about an art project that I wanted him to help me with, but he was not having it.

What a cunt.
