    And frankly he was no better at picking the right lane to be in than he was picking the right team.

    The most embarassing part was i was at a function probably 5 years later with a friend who was/is in ‘the business’ and we bumped into him. He did that slitty eyed ‘i fckn know you’ kind of thing so i hilariously pointed out that i puched him at Universal studios, he took it well and we did kiss and make up. He is a prize A ****t though.

    Just being able to sit 3 feet away from Elizabeth Taylor and actually converse was, at the time, tantamount to scoring all the points I thought possible in life.

    Got out of the car and kicked off with Jimmy Savile in Glencoe village. He’d parked his campervan totally blocking any access to our driveway. We guessed who’s van it was (well known in Glencoe and him having a house near there) and I waited for him in the car whilst the others walked to the house. It was years before all the accusations, but I’d always considered him a self publicising tit anyways. I felt a bit childish at the time, sitting for 15 mins or so waiting for him, but now since very happy with my small rant at a fiddler.

    MacC, I shall gently giggle into the early hours at that one, wonderful stuff. Could well have been the nail in the coffin for Frank.
    Busy, still no more points but I am rather jealous. Was this around the time of The Comedians?

    Was this around the time of The Comedians?

    It would have been as I worked for TWA from late 1966 through most of 1968 and I think The Comedians came out in 1967.

    Was at a Godskitchen night with an ex way back in early Noughties, for my sins, at Leeds Town Hall. There had been some horrendous hard house on in one room, not my cup of tea, and I was utterly miserable at the sound of it. So we wandered off and had fun convincing some bolloxed ne’er-do-wells that badgers don’t exist.

    We leave that room and this woman approaches me asking what I thought of the DJ set previous in the hard house room. Without taking a breath I said it was aural diarrhoea, absolutely terrible and that the mixing was horrendous. My ex grabs me, apologises to the mortified woman and drags me away. At the bottom of the stairs she says that was her favourite DJ, Lisa Lashes and the reason we had come to the night and her set I had just commented on. To this day I refuse apologise for my actions.

    I’ve been upset by Martin Shaw.

    In a jewellers in Cambridge, some years ago, I was wanting to look at potential engagement rings, but all the shop-staff were fawning over him and the girl who was with him. Pissed me right off.

    Still, Burton, Harris and O’Toole were screen legends the like we will never see again, and you spent a couple of hours with one of them!

    You should have seen the difficulty n keeping all the other TWA people from the ticket counter away from my lost baggage office—everybody suddenly seemed to find some reason to stop in. Worse than a bunch of dogs in heat falling over each other—kind of embarrassing actually.

    Tom Baker to me to f off in the Racing Page in Richmond and had a small set to do with Mike Gatting who was being overly familiar with a then girlfriend. He took exception when asked how much coke he’d done to have such a mangled nose.

    During Euro 96 at gatwick airport watching England destroy Scotland… Our finest hour.
    Olly Reed was sitting at the bar next to me keeping him self to him self and I may have got carried away when gazza bagged the second and started getting all chatty…. He told me to piss off and promptly moved round the other side of the bar.

    Also, my mate made a very famous boxer, his next door neighbour, clean up his dog’s sh!t (it had wandered in and dumped in my mates garden). He still talks about it triumphantly.

    I will be recommending a very famous person’s son is not accepted back to complete his A levels next year. He is famous for being very bloody obnoxious at the best of times. I am anticipating some quality procrastination all afternoon to put off the call!

    JuilianA, I shamelessly but half heartedly tried to find the thread but couldn’t. Any clues?

    Not me but a mate who pis*ed James Hetfield off – asking for an autograph at the Marquee when he was busy entertaining Lars with his “see how long I can keep this pint on my head” demonstration. Quite a while it seems…

    I inadvertantly enraged the drummer from Feeder. That was quite funny but he killed himself about a week later. I don’t think it was entirely because of me…

    Speaking of Lisa Lashes I had to help carry her to her hotel room she was that lashed a few years ago.

    I slapped Cedric round the face and gave him a sod off great wedgy once. I’m afraid we were very very drunk

    A tenuous link at best………I upset David Coulthard in Economics at Kirkcudbright high school in 5th year as he found out the following day that i shagged his GF on the geography teachers desk at the Candlemas ball – it sounds pretty despicable but we were only 16/17 at the time and i didn’t know much better, we’ve settled our differences over a drink since the act in question back in 1989 – i guess he’s had the better part of the deal since.

    And….. I told Calvin Harris (adam wiles) to GTF one night (2004) in my bros club in dumfries as he was being an absolute sex pest wi the bar staff (as usual) and pissing every girl off so we told him to GTF or we’d rearrange his mush down the back staircase. #comebackalisforgivencalvin……….. πŸ˜‰

    There’s a a few other upsets/moments with the prima-donna DJ’s we book for the local festival that our crew run the dance tents for but professional responsibilities (and possible lawsuits/problems with booking agents) prevent me from naming names……

    Great thread.

    Like Convert I also can’t reveal all in case I lose my job, but I have upset a very famous current pop star so much that her reaction on social media made the news internationally.

    I was only doing my job, but nearly lost it because of the daft cow.

    I told the Green Cross Code dude that there was “No way” he was Darth Vadar. He looked peeved.

    I also laughed at Goldie when he asked for a discount on a PS2 and some games and told him to sell a tooth.

    I was riding down Cheyney Walk in London a long time again when a big Bentley Limo pulls up along side me. In the back was a tiny wizened monkey like creature that was Mick Jagger. I gave him a thumbs up and he flicked me a V sign. What a charmer πŸ˜†
