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....

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.
