    Guess it's thread with the BRoS lyric title ressurection time :rolleyes:

    K..The point of this thread is to see just how many famous (if any @:p)
    faces we have lurking behind those nics on these forums...

    Please post stories/anecdotes and/or any supporting images etc, to support
    your "claim" hehe...... (if possible...no biggie;))

    If not did your Grandmother used to babysit Cher?, or
    your Uncle Albert know Bob Hope?
    Relatives/friends count too!.
    Kinda gets more people involved.

    It got a pretty good response last time, so let's see if we have any stars
    amongst us?

    I'll kick the ball off....

    I'm not famous in my own right, but I did win $16,000 on the UK
    version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
    It got quite freaky afterwards. Couldn't go anywhere in my local town
    without being stopped, local rag kept phoning me at home and work
    wanting stories etc.. lol

    I've got a credit (in my real name) on the Gunshot album, "Patriot Games"

    My Grandfather served in WWII win the same platoon as the actor Sir David
    Niven, and he used to walk to school with Norman Wisdon (British comic)

    Met a few famous people at different events. Goeff Capes, Linda Lusardi,
    Jean-Paul Sigmarrsson, and a few other's like that. I've also been in the local
    paper for other stuff when I was younger, though nothing major.

    Ooh yeah, and finally my uncle regularly plays golf with many
    of the older comedians..Mike Reid, Jim Davison, Brian Conley, Bobby Davro,
    Duncan Norvelle, Jimmy Tarbuck and others.;)

    Right then, it's over to you....

    Hmmm, well, other than being in the newspaper a few times(NOT the Police Report, thank you)...I'm not really famous. But, I have been around some better known people. Not sure how well know he is to our friends across the pond, but the company I work for was formerly owned by Joe Amato, of NHRA fame. He still runs the Dragster from this building, although he doesn't do the driving anymore. Most recently worked on the pc in their tractor-trailor that records all the info from their run times and dyno tests, and had to get the DVD player working on Mrs. Amato's laptop. They're good people...and I love hanging out in the garage!
