I'd go on the basis that it's Sunday service, just to be on the safe side.

I doubt I could list all the bands I've seen, far too many festivals.

 

I will say Foo Fighters are the best band I have ever seen live, and having seen Maiden, Kiss and Metallica (also many, many others) too I think that's quite an achievement!

Here is a topic for everyone. What is your biggest claim to fame/most famous person you have met?

 

I have two big ones:

 

I was once invited to a garden party at Buckingham Palace and whilst there I lead a parade of over 750 cadets of army, air force and st john ambulance, and was personally congratulated by Princes Charles, William and Harry (Who said I was scarier than his commander)

 

The other one is that whilst working as security at Leeds festival, I was given a lift from the dressing room area to the stage by Suggs on a quad bike. That was a surreal moment.

 

I have also met tons of other famous people, but they are the two that stand out for me

Jesus, are you on Jerusalum time or something? You only ever seem to post between 12am and 3am!

 

Your claim to fames are pretty damn excellent!

 

Mine is being related to a fairly famous drummer- BJ Wilson. Most famous for being in Procal Harum, but also drummed for the likes of AC/DC, Joe Cocker, Cat Stevens and was also the drummer for the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not too shabby a resume! Sadly he died in 1990, when I was 2 years old.


 

If anyones interested, heres a great clip of him, check it out if anyone likes a bit of classic rock or drums. This song is an actual clinic.

that's madness! ;)

 

can't beat you's im afraid. got a relevant one though, in that i met mr jim marshall a couple of times, always had a big cigar in his mouth and a couple of tasty birds by his side :D RIP mr amps!

 

another i'v just remembered. I was sat in a fairly small, insignificant subways (chicken and bacon... in case you were wondering) a few years ago, when all of a sudden, a 400 grand Mercedes SLR Mclaren rolls up in the car park (which up until that point, only had a clapped out old micra and my mum's little citroen in it) and out pop's a certain fabio capello (+ friend) who came and sat at a table near us (12 inch meatball marinara... in case you were wondering) :p

Nb4, I'm a teenager, I don't tend to sleep until 3am at the earliest. I'm certainly a nocturnal person. Your claim to fame is pretty cool, I love RHPS!

One of my former work chums moved to Cardiff, and happened to be working in the Hotel that the Middlesbrough team stayed at in 2004.

 

They were using one of the conference rooms for the pre-match timing schedule. When they left the room my mate took the flip chart paper that Steve McLaren had written all the timings on, and it's now framed on my bedroom wall.

 

Any ideas which Boro player drew a man's bits on it?

haha well i was in my early teens...it was april 2000 and i was a ballboy in the boro 3-4 utd match.

 

it was during the first half when we were 1 up and the ball came straight to me...utd throw. so i thought in the best interests of my beloved boro was the throw it straight to christian ziege even though mr beckham was less than a couple of yards away....he then unleashed the expletives!

 

i have also shared a spa with joe royle when he was in charge oof everton....a few weeks later they beat utd with a paul rideout header in the fac cup final!

    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees. 
    • Imagine complaining that you earned enough to invest into things like property so you can't afford to lose a quid of your huge wages. The poor sods. Must be awful having to downgrade your car or house to a smaller one when something doesn't work out as planned.
