I worked for a moving company during the summers in college. I moved 3 famous people:
Don Johnson was not just aloof, he was a prick. We started answering with "yessa massa" and he didn't even blink.
Bruce Springsteen, very cordial but left soon after we got there.
Billy Joel, now this is a guy who you can have a beer with. We showed up, he was there, took me and the other supervisor aside and PREEMPTIVELY apologised for his wife (Yes it was Christie Brinkley). She was a total BITCH. We had to move this cast iron bitch of a tub up the stairs. 4 large guys and it was a bitch. 6.5 feet long, claw foot tub. She had us move that thing 3 times.
Later Mr. Joel came outside around lunch time and asked me what the boys do for lunch. We told him that we all brown bag it. He looked at me and ASKED if it would be ok if he bought us lunch! I told him heck yea! He said "Well go ask the boys what they want, I know a good sub shop around here but get whatever."
Knock me over with a feather. I went to the boys we all agreed that whatever Mr. Joel wanted was fine so I went back to him and said we'd love the subs. He comes down with one of those big ass fishing coolers with cokes, bottled water, juice, and beer takes our lunch order himself, gets in his Ford Crown Vic and is back 30 minutes later with BAGS of sub sandwiches. He got us 3 sandwiches apiece. Then he sits down with us and starts unwrapping a sandwich and begins eating. He grabs a beer and cracks it open.
We all sat down on the front lawn with him and started eating like it was the most natural thing to do. He was talking baseball, music, family, etc. Just a regular guy.
We saw his wife 3 times that day and she was just a raving bitch. It was something out of the movies. She would yell for him to come inside and he would yell back "I'll be in when I'm done with my sandwich!" and then roll his eyes. Funny guy. Loves dirty jokes.
I also had the fortune of meeting with Denzel Washington and Gary Sinise up in DC. they do so much for supporting the men and women in the Armed Forces.
Bruce Springsteen again in the Stone Pony is Asbury Park before it closed down.
Faith Hill and Tim McGraw at a Longhorn Steakhouse in Nashville TN when they paid for the dinner of a group of kids going to prom. They went over and introduced themselves to the kids. The kids were just dumbstruck. They asked them if they could pay for their dinner. The kids said sure. Tim and Faith said "great, on one condition though. You guys do not have a drop of booze to drink tonight. Deal?"
There were at least 4 kids that night that went without booze I can guarantee it.
Who's John Galt.
