    This was a few years before he died. I met him at a gig he was playing and he asked me for a ride back to his hotel. This guy was one of my idols and I couldn't believe how down and out he was. Truly a virtuoso, but all the years of hard living took their toll.

    I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

      He had placed his leash handle under a chair leg in an n outdoor cafe to go inside for a moment, when the dog got loose so I grabbed the leash until he came back outside. I gave him the leash and explained what happened, and he thanked me.

      Doesn't exactly compare to these other stories but I bet that everyone here has a celebrity story of one sort or another. Perhaps a diary is called for?
