random famous people where you least expect them
Saw Phil Collins in Sainsburys in Guildford High Street many years ago. Also saw him on the train going back to Guildford out of Waterloo. He seemed very angry that the train was running late!!
Also saw Rolf Harris one morning at Charing Cross station. Not what I expected as I was staggering bleary-eyed to work!!Posted 4 years agostevestuntsMember
Lee Scratch Perry in Morecambe;
RZA from Wu-Tang Clan in Barrow In Furness ***I THINK THIS MEANS I WIN***
Vernon Kay used to have a couple of my mixtapes in his car, and in 1996 he had a few drinks in my room in uni halls, before going out clubbing with us and making a complete shaft-grasper of himself (I was mates with his younger brother, and Vernon was visiting)*.
* – I only mention this because I wanted to use the term ‘shaft-grasper’.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
Another.. Almost forgot..
Simon Amstell from “never mind the Buzzcocks” etc. etc. sitting in the row in front of me and MrsBouy at Saddlers Wells a few weeks ago.
The tall thin one from the PetShopBoys, again at Saddlers last year whilst their production of “the most incredible thing” was playing out on stage.
Forgot about those two.Posted 4 years agoNJASubscriber
I once sold Martin Brundle a Bike (Marin Indian Fire Trail with Manitou 2’s IIRC).
I didn’t recognise him and when I asked for his name and address for the receipt he loudly stated ‘I am Martin Brundle’ and then got very miffed because I still didn’t know who he was.Posted 4 years agoaustenSubscriber
Ronnie Wood keeps getting in my way as I’m heading out of the office for lunch. In fact on one occasion he was flirting with the checkout girl and fumbling for change in a little purse and hugely delayed my sandwich purchase!
Also seen coming out of the Flight Centre.
All in downtown Bath.Posted 4 years agooomidamonMember
Yasser Arafat on Chiswick High Road, late ’90s. He was in the back of a limo with a rather large police presence. I also used to go to a gym near to the BBC which had a few Blue Peter presenters (Katy Hill!) in it but the best one there was seeing Bill Bailey having a personal training session.
Saw a Ferrari waiting at a roundabout a few years ago and my first thought was ‘he’s a bit young to be driving that’ – then I realised it was Matt Bellamy from Muse.Posted 4 years agoDenDennisMember
another Ian Brown here,
weekday morning about 830am before work, just off to get milk from what was then a Safeway at the bottom of Berwick St, soho.
He’s mucking about being filmed on a silver BMX in the road. Have only seen clips of the final vid – was it FEAR?
Not Ian Brown-
The late, great Richard Whitely at the gents urinals in what was then the volcano club, glasgow!Posted 4 years agoBillMCMember
Dolly Parton came into the Princess Louise, Holborn, with a crowd of pearly kings. They were filming and the pearlies gave us loads of beer that had been bought for them.Posted 4 years ago
Donald Trump in Manhattan this April.
Winston Churchill Jr in Crete airport.
Prince Charles in the Abingdon St, Northampton. I ignored him.phil40Subscriber
Brian Moore at Trevose Golf club, we were both in the bar waiting for the dinner service to begin at the restaurant. I wanted to buy him a drink for all of his test matches against the french, but my wife decided I would come across as a sad middle aged star struck bloke!
I kept looking on the pairs board to see if he wanted a partner for a round of golf on the classic course… no such luck 🙁Posted 4 years ago
