    That's cool, Romeo.Where did you meet him ?
    ROMOS

    Stayed in the same hotel he was staying in.

    My mother lived with  Jimmy Don Cox.  He's by no means famous, but he did have a bit part as an extra in Gunsmoke and he played the County Sheriff in Tommy Lee Jones movie, The Good Ole Boy's.   Jimmy was also an artist and sculptor. Here's a picture he painted several years ago. Every Cowboy in this painting is a well known  person, such a Wilford Brimley, Elmor Kelton, Bruce Boxleiter etc.  Jimmy Don was also a great Festus impersonator.

    Beat over the head is more like it.
    Jimmy died of cancer about 2 years ago. You would have liked to of known him, he did a great Festus impression. I know he met Miss Kitty.

    When I was in Las Vegas with my parents, and nothing to do, I met Dean Martin AND Bob Newhart (different times).  Both men were exceedingly cordial and pleasant. I have an 8 x 10 B/W glossy autographed by Dean.

    Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis movies are my favorite old black and white movies.
    tabber

    now that dean was a special handsome man, my type.
    Bob/PKB

    Hysterical duo. To this day, I remember how gracious Dean was, and how heartbroken he was when his son, Dino, was killed.
    mycatsmom

    he was never the same after his son died .Ditto for Johnny Carson.

    I met Barry Crocker (The Adventures of Barry MacKenzie) at Jupiter's Casino.Nice bloke.Easy to talk to.


    I also met Johnny O'Keefe Outside the York Hotel in Brisbane once.He was trying to catch a cab.


    And of course There was Rock 'n' Roll George whom I met several times.George was an iconic Brisbane celebrity.He drove around in an old Holden that everyone recognised.A sign on the front said "Rock"n"Roll.Sadly he passed a year or so ago.He will be missed.
