This is a question Shit Claims to Fame II

My car was in the Specsavers advert with the old lady and the loud stereo. Not me. My stupid blue Nissan Micra. Tell us about your brushes with fame.

Oh, and I occasionally run into a fair amount of musicians who were famous in the 1990s, but who still hang around the Minneapolis music scene.

Surf trip to Hossegor.

Crossing the dunes one evening for a surf, we see some bloke, dressed head to foot in expensive Quiksilver gear, playing a ukelele (or, more likely an hawaiian guitar) to a couple of girls, giving the full 'I'm a surfer, me' thing.

'What a wannabe twat' my mate says, just loud enough for him to hear.

And then Kelly Slater turned round, put his tiny guitar down and glared at him.

'Comedy Dave' Vitty
I was asleep in a room at a partywhen a friend of mine shagged 'Comedy Dave' Vitty. This must have been around 1995, so before he teamed up with that cunt Moyles. He was at Uni with the boyfriend of another friend of mine. The friend he shagged was nicknamed 'Pig', which tells you alot about his pre-fame standards

I don't care who you are, you're in the way
Around 1990, I was wrestling an enormous flight-case containing electric-make-music-loud stuff onto the side of a big stage in Berkshire. Someone was in the way. I requested that they allow us egress. And that is how I came to say "Get out the way you stupid fucking twat" to Mick Jagger.

Four things...

1) I got to meet Lloyd Grossman when I was about fourteen. My class at school designed a flag for Monkwearmouth museum. He shook my hand and said something, couldn't understand him. I called him a wanker (very, very quietly as he was walking away).

2) I was on ITV News eating a sausage roll when I was skipping college. Only one of my friends saw it and he told me I had pastry all down my shirt.

3) I walked past Coronation Street's Les Battersby about six months ago when he was at a stall selling Flossies. There was a big sign saying he would be there from 12 to 5. Didn't even have his real name, just 'Coronation Street's Les Battersby'. We made eye contact and done the eyebrow raise thing and smiled. My mam didn't believe me.

4) A friend was on some telly show with Robson (of Robson and Jerome fame) skating along a street. He said he was a really nice bloke, got an autograph and a sandwich from him.

When I was a student
one of the girls I shared a house with was friends with the girlfriend of Dave Fenton, of the Vapours.

We went to a party at their house in Thornton Heath. I was told before we went not to ask him about 'Turning Japanese' because he got the hump when people did.

So I didn't.

I was sick in their bathroom, and fell asleep in a flowerbed though.

Watty from the Exploited head butted me

As a 12yr old I measured Geoff Capes' horsepower whilst he was there in the flesh actually in front of me in true flesh reality.

Guess how many horses Geoff Cape's power equates to....

here's a random selection of varying shitness
I once got a lift in a van from Leeds to London off one of the guys from Utah Saints. Remember them?

Craig Charles scavved a fag off my mate and had a chat with us at a festival last year. Nice guy, wasn't on crack or anything.

Oh yeah, and because I was assisting in a photoshoot a few years ago, I've got a selection of full frontal butt-naked photos of Lady Gaga. I suppose they'd be worth money but it's pretty obvious exactly where and when they were taken so if they got out I'd be instantly sued and there'd be no chance of working with any of those people ever again...
