I meant you, as the OP of the post, for which I was replying to a comment about the post by someone else.

Going back to the 1960's (I'cos I'm that old )
Through working in London hotels, I met loads of 'stars' from TV, film etc.
Ther BEST by a country mile was American Pop Star, Gene Pitney, loveliest, most generous, down to earth person you could ever meet.
The WORST was Freddie Cannon, also American Pop Star, he was the rudest, most up his own backside, person I had the misfortune to ever meet. I did agree to go out for a meal with him, but only because I liked Wes Rose (song writer) who was also coming. We went to The Lotus House in Edgeware Road, which was the 'in' place to go, lots of other celebs of the day, were there, but I couldn't get out of there fast enough when Freddie complained LOUDLY about everything. The rest of the hotel staff also loathed him.

Aw, that's lovely to read. Gene was one of my mum's (many) crushes in the 60's. Tragically lost too soon.

Freinds of mine met him and said he was great, especially with their youngest kid who was a bit overwhelmed and dumbstruck at meeting the Doctor. They were soon chatting away like old mates.
Okay, now I am jealous. I would give away my firstborn to get up close and personal with him

Not met in person but went to a listening preview of a Nine Inch Nails album a good few years back and their fan club invited about 50 people in for a sneak listen. Trent Reznor bought pizza and coke for all those people there and seemed like a really lovely guy as he came out for an introduction and spoke of the album. Really humble guy and thankful for those that have put him there.

On holiday earlier this month and James Corden, Peter Jones and Holly Willoughby came in to a bar with a group of other friends. All three of them were absolutely charming, happily chatting and posing for photos with everyone who asked and over the course of the couple of hours that was an awful lot of people! Special thanks to James who recorded a very funny video message for my son who had had to stay at home following a serious car accident.

Was that awful Keith Lemon with them - him and his family are supposed to be sharing a villa with HW and her family.
Thinking about it he could not have been or you would have known about it.

My old band supported them a few years ago and they were all lovely. Their management weren't as nice and wouldn't even let us have a group photo with them.

You do know that Keith Lemon is a character and not a real person, don't you?

I'm no fan of Lemon either but don't know what Leigh Francis is like when he is himself. Has anyone here met him?

You'd be shocked how many people don't know/believe that Keith Lemon isn't real.

I think I read earlier on this thread or possibly on a similar one that someone had met Leigh Francis "as himself" and he was actually quite shy and quiet. Makes sense I suppose, if you're shy you might want to only be a more flamboyant character in public.

I almost put Leigh Francis in brackets but assumed everybody knows KL is a character.

Yes, I met James Corden in a bar and he was very sweet and not showbizzy at all.

We did hear that Leigh Francis was on the resort too, but we didn't see him and he wasn't with the group that night

Your mum had good taste
Gene always had time for his fans, would take every phone call ( I know, 'cos I was the telephonist) and come downstairs to meet any fan who called at the hotel to see him.
He even paid for 2 fans to stay overnight after they had waited until midnight for him to get back from a show. He then arranged for them to see him in concert.
I could go on, but I won't as you say, gone far too soon.
Gene was good friends with The Rolling Stones - who I hated as much as Freddie Cannon.

The girl who missed out on girls aloud Javine a bitch
Martine McCutcheon full of herself
Allen Stone total sweetheart
James Arthur nice

That's all I can think of at the moment )

My other half is from a Northern Ireland village called Loughbrickland which you used to have to drive through when travelling from Belfast to Dublin. In the 60's his father was in the Village Inn one Thursday evening, when a limo pulled up outside and Roy Orbison entered the premises - to see his performance on Top of the Pops it turned out. He bought the whole bar a drink - namely the OH's father, the barman and 2 other punters.

My dad met Brian Johnson of AC/DC in a restaurant in Newcastle in the eighties and said he was completely down to earth and very pleasant.

Do you ever remember the case when a woman was beaten into a coma in the seventies and she was a huge fan and when she came round, the Big O paid her a visit.

Is he the one who did 'Twenty Four Hours from Tulsa'?? And that duet with Marc Almond?? I love those songs!!! And his voice!
