Are you friends or acquainted with anyone famous?

When Ryan Dunn was alive and doing that show "Room Raiders" my friend used to work on the show and actually was on an episode himself. He and Dunn became good friends after. He would invite us to MTV hosted parties, all the jackass guys would be there and other celebrity-ish people as well. Dunn would also go to our parties once in a while. Cool fucking dude RIP.

Tyler, The Creator- Skated with he and his dudes here and there back in the day. We're actually still cool, a few years ago he signed my friends band Trash Talk to (his label) Odd Future which was awesome.

Social Distortion- I do merch for them every time they do local so-cal shows.

Juninho from the LA Galaxy- He used to be a regular at my barbershop. He gave me a jersey and picture signed by all the players, which I framed and hung up. Also would always assign us tickets whenever we wanted to go. Really awesome guy. Unfortunately we sold the shop. Still takes the time to say what's up after games when he sees me and the family though.

And this last one I wouldn't call him "famous" but he's on tv a lot now...

Emanuel Newton- Bellator lhw champ. Friends since 03, and he's the reason I got hardcore into mma. Hands down one of the nicest people on earth. Phone Post 3.0

I have a very close friend who is an academy award or oscar award ( I don't know the difference) winning writer, producer, and director.

 

He is a cool guy, very normal dude.

not really famous, but I know Brett and Wade from Tanked. I know Max Lucado, although not really well. He will say hello when he sees me.

Jay Cutler (body builder not QB) was my dad's best friend when I was growing up. It was to the point where I was told to call him "Uncle Jay."

Him and my Dad had a falling out, but everytime he is in FL I shoot him a text and usually see him.

The most down to earth dude ever, did not feel any different than when we used to chill in my living room and rice cakes when I was a kid (We literally had a whole drawer of those things fully stocked at all times).

Not friends friends, but I hung out with Evan Seinfeld back in 99-2000. He was banging my guitarists sister at the time. Weird dude. Funny, but weird. Looks like hell these days. Phone Post 3.0

Guy is all heart, really good dude. Shocking considering he is super successful and had a really hard upbringing. His brother was murdered, and a book and movie were later written/made that had a main character that was supposed to be his brother and it was all lies.

A lot of stuff that couls have left him jaded but... no he isn't, just a happy go lucky how can I help you kind of guy.

 

Pretty cool.

Not everyone gets the privelage. I talked cigars with Frank Vincent twice at Davidoff on Madison. Unfortunately for you, you will probably never have such an experience to hang with such a cool guy.

He's a really nice guy. Always sends people to check up on us to see if we're doing ok- hungry, thirsty, enough shade, etc. and he always makes sure we take merch for the family. Also gives us band wristbands for access to free drinks.

Only had one bad experience (which was a misunderstanding).
This lady came over to the booth at The Hootenanny last year and just came up to me and said "I need 3 band pics and 2 shirts. Mike said to dock them" I had no idea who she was or anything, so I told her no, she needed to call him or bring someone we knew. she made a big scene and Mike had to stop their sound check to come over to the booth... Apparently she was related to him. He was kinda mad, but I told him I wasn't gonna just give out free shit to people that come and say they knew him or the band. He was more mad over him being dragged out to straighten things out and there being absolutely no reception there. No biggie. Phone Post 3.0

my friends and i used to skate with harold hunter (RIP), the black guy from KIDS....in fact we also skated with Leo fitzpatrick (the main character of KIDS) when he used to work at the willowbrook mall in jersey as well as justin pierce (casper) back in the day

 

but that was more of a skateboard thing.....all active skaters are linked with "celeb" skaters if they get out at all
