My father had Doc Egerton as a lab instructor at MIT, and I attended a bones workshop he led (really! It stands to reason that a man as bright as that would play bones!) I still have the practice bones he passed out, cut from pieces of straight lath and stamped with Egerton's office rubber stamp.

I used to catch clothes as they came offstage for Ann Corio's This Was Burlesque show, and Minsky's Burlesque Follies '76. I have a picture of me with Ann Corio.

Billy Joel was in my 10th grade math class.That was in Hicksville (yes, really, the town is called Hicksville) Long Island, NY. In the same class, I sat next to Virginia Calahan, Billy's former girlfriend and the same Virginia he sings about in "Only the Good Die Young". A band that I was in did the soundtrack for a triple-X rated film called Big Abner. It was a pornographic take-off on the Little Abner comic strip. This was years ago and we were willing to do almost anything for money, since paying jobs for old-time string bands were few and far between at the time. And still are. I saw the completed film at a sleazy movie house on Times Square, and I can,in all fairness, say that you don't need to ever see this flick. It has just occured to me that someone scanning this paragraph quickly is going to read it as "Billy Joel was in an X-rated movie. I don't know how I feel about that. Just don't blame me for starting the rumor.

Hey Jacob B! Thanks for that. I never met the man but have spoken to his son on the phone (we are doing genealogical work). It sounds like he was a lot of fun. I didn't know about his bones workshop.
Speaking of best men, Alex, my husband was a musician at a wedding were Henry Winkler (Fonzie) was the best man.

I was performing at a supper club with my Jazz band (a number of years ago) and Tony Bennett (in the audience having dinner) got out of his seat and approached me on our first break and asked if we'd mind if he came up and sang a few tunes with us. He said "you guys swing real good". (Yeah...like we'd mind!) Ended up doing two sets with him. The people in the room went nuts. Afterwards he bought the band rounds of drinks, autographed some charts of his tunes I'd had, and gave me his home number and that of his manager's. We've remained friends over the years, and still touch base with each other occasionally.

Family claims to fame:

My dad was at school with John Renbourne, albeit in a different year (JR was 4-5 years above my dad).

My great-grandfather set up the department store "Crawfords" in Hong Kong (basically the Hong Kong version of Harrod's), but through some shady boardroom deal he lost control of the company and got booted out (about 1930).

Personal claims to fame:

Met Prince Philip when I was collecting my Duke of Edinburgh's Gold. Otherwise very little.

I sold a futon to Bela Fleck; I sold ice cream to Ranger Doug and Too Slim of Riders in the Sky; and I sold a bedroom suite to Woody Paul of Riders in the Sky for his teenage daughter. No, the furniture store did not sell ice cream. It was two different jobs. Also sold a stone angel to Emmylou Harris's mother. And a down comforter to Bernie Leadon. (hey, this is Nashville, after all)

One of my ancestors, Jacob Van Meter, was among the first to settle Hardin County, KY. He was a French & Indian and Rev War vet and there is a DAR chapter named after him in Elizabethtown, KY.

I like to call the following kinds of things 'sideways fame' because they're not quite the same as 'full-on' fame...

I ran the sound board for about one third of a Peter Rowan concert.

I was the first person to officially collect, identify, and catalogue a specimen of a Swamp Rose Mallow (Hybiscus Palustris) in the history of the state of Oklahoma.

The artist who did the Elvis stamp (remember the Elvis stamp?) has a pen an ink drawing of mine hanging in his home.

I don't know if they're still there, but for years, the Tulsa Zoo had 'Native American artifacts' that I had actually either made, or artificially aged, and were displaying them in part of their museum as the 'real thing'.

In addition to my last comments here: While performing in a coffee house in Brooklyn years ago a guy came in and started backing us up on the house piano. I later learned that it was Peter Schikele - PDQ Bach. He definately had a talent for old-time string band music. My harmonica playing was complemented by Leon Redbone, but not to my face. I was directing traffic once and held up traffic so Senator Bill Bradley could cross the street. I said "Good Evening" to him but he ignored me. Now he'll never get my vote. He was also in the audience at Albert Music Hall in Waretown NJ when my band was playing. He's so tall that he had to sit in an aisle seat with his legs in the aisle. I almost tripped on his feet in the dark. I also shook hands with Kaptain Kangaroo at a supermarket opening when I was 6 yrs. old.

I have shaken hands with Hubert Humphrey and George McGovern (at different times -- as well as some Minnesota politicians you wouldn't care about.)

I once ran into Senator Paul Wellstone in my favorite bookstore. We exchanged a few words about the books we were buying.

The owner of this bookstore, when he was in high school, went to a Jewish summer camp with Bob Dylan.

I have visited in the home of my state senator, who once shook hands with Groucho Marx! (He has the photo on his wall.)

The funeral director who directed my father-in-law's funeral once dated Tammy Faye Bakker, before she married Jim Bakker.

My cousin was literally a face in the crowd in the movie, "A Face in the Crowd." She lives in Piggott, Arkansas, where it was filmed.

In high school, my best friend's biology lab partner was Sue Diller, daughter of Phyllis Diller.

Another friend's older brother was a high school classmate of Dick Gephardt.

In college, I lived in the same house with a guy whose cat ran away and was found by Muriel Humphrey, wife of Hubert Humphrey.

I also scored the only touchdown during the entire 1962 football season at Needham Highschool on the Junior Varsity Team. I recovered a fumble on the first play after the half and ran 56 yards with little or no intereference from the other team. They won 6-0. It was a very long ride home in that bus.

Took a songwriting workshop with Bob Franke. He said my songwriting-exercise song was "masterful", but maybe he says that to all the paying customers?

Gene Shay, Philadelphia Folk Festival emcee, said I "write songs the way they ought to be written."
