I met Diana Ross and got her autograph back stage at the Westbury Music Fair in Long Island NY back in the eighties.

I've met Jimmy Buffett, Melissa Etheridge and Earl Scruggs. And I'm an old personal pal of Suzy Bogguss.

I have been fortunate to meet a lot of celebrities at music venues. I won't mention those. I have met a few in just ordinary life. I meet James Moody, Denis Edwards (Temptations) at the airport. AL McKay (Earth Wind Fire) at a house party. Shaun Cassidy shared a top bunk with me for a few days while I was in a rehab in Hawaii (visiting friend). I also met Chuck Berry, Nelly, Vanilla Ice (Casino). Also my sister used to date Chuck Carter (drummer for Hugh Masekela) famous for those cow bells on the opening of Grazing In The Grass. I know there are a few more just won't come to me now.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, a serious and most knowledgeable jazz fan, was in the Village Vanguard when I was performing there. He told me if basketball hadn't been his calling his wish would have been to play the piano like Bud Powell.

As a member of the Tarrytown Music Hall I got to meet many of the performers, from Dave Mason, David Benoit, Russ Freeman  and many others. We had a British Invasion show a couple of years ago and got to meet several stars including Denny Lane. We also had a private Charity event for members only..the Star ..Jon Bovi.
