Gerald Ford when president...my college band played hail to the Chief and I was in the ruffles and flourishes section...shook his hand.

College band also played backup for Bob Barker...nice guy, came and talked with us when he did not have to. Seemed very genuine.

Played a gig with Buddy Morrow (jazz trombonist) he was awesome, and also a hell of a nice guy. Such an amazing talent. He sat with me and chatted a while after our rehearsal. Seemed so kind.

Bill Berry...founding member and drummer of REM. Also I fired him from a restaurant job. Did not want to. Really liked him. Others called him weird. I found him thoughtful, interesting, and very nice. He was so excited about the band. Remember him telling me about the name they had picked and what it meant.

Hershel Walker...thighs like tree trunks.

Edwin Newman

Shawn Cassidy

Barbara Berry

Vincent Gardinia

Tim Shriver...awesome speaker...and so handsome. Acts as if he cares about everyone he meets. Eyes that connect.

THE Vincent Gardinia?

Lewis Grizzard rocked! The guy had been married like 5 times. Had a pig valve in his heart. His dog "shotgun".

He was one guy I wished I could have met.

He was really nice ... It was interesting, though. He got stage fright before each show, so after being introduced to me, he had another drink, and went off into the hallways to pace and work it out. His crew started feeding me Fuzzy Navels because I was so nervous! then, Lewis came back, told me not to be nervous, then read my intro notes -- loved them and autographed them for me. It was a fun night.
