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.

Today Is Saturday Watch And Smile! Demonic 'children's' tv programme which consisted of adults being extremely drunk and having water and gunge thrown over them and torturing young defenseless children -pretty much your average Brit Saturday morning viewing. TisWas became legendary because it gave birth to the careers of Chris tarrant and Lenny Henry. Sadly it did nothing for my career!

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'.

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.

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 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.

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.

I was on the Basic Black Radio show in the Noseflute contest. I also played with a guy who played with Eric Clapton in about 1962, unfortunately he has now passed on to join the the Big Band in the sky. My real claim though is that I know another guy who in 1963 could have booked a band called the Rolling Stones for a college dance, the rest of the commitee would not agree to cough up the extra 50 quid that they wanted over the other band, whoever they were. I guess they don't do gigs for 250 quid any more anyhow. JohnB

That's funny, Ben. Vince McMahon went to my university, East Carolina University. He majored in business. Guess it didn't work with the XFL!

Sandra Bullock also went here (ECU) for 2 years. During her time here, she won the honor of Watermelon Queen at the Farmville Watermelon Festival, which is about 15 miles from here.

Katharine Whelan, the singer & banjo & ukelele player for The Squirrel Nut Zippers (who are mostly from Chapel Hill), grew up on 5th Street here in Greenville. 5th Street is a mile from where I am now. Her father was an art major at the ECU School of Art (just like me). My figure drawing teacher remembered having taught him in a few classes.

My friend Paul got to shake GW's hand when he visited here a few months ago. He was at the sports coliseum down the street.

When my grandfather was a baby, he was kissed by Mother Cabrini, who would be canonized as Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini.
