    Depends what you mean by famous, really.

    I met the entire band Toto in 2006
    I played football with Les Sealy
    I met the Chelsea squad in 1970
    I played in a school band with Iron Maiden's Steve Harris
    I played in another band with Alan Murphy, ex Level 42, Go West, Kate Bush, Mike and the Mechanics
    I met Ramsey Campbell, Michael Marchall Smith and Brian Lumley (authors) at a book signing

    But no royals, no actors...except maybe Ray Winstone.

    On the subject of obscure footballers....

    I used to play football with Imre Varadi! ( Check wiki!!)

    He was a foster child, with his brother, with a family on my street and always used to play football with us. Then, he was playing for Letchworth United (may have been when they changed to LGCFC), and before you know it, he'd been scouted by Harry Haslam.....Noted manager of Sheff United. Further transfers included to Leeds, Newcastle and Everton....Much to the delight of my Toffee-supporting sister!

    Les was a tubby kid who had bags of enthusiasm and no talent...my dad stuck him in goal...the rest is history. Became disillusioned with the game long before his early death.
