Over the years I have met my share of celebrities. I had the pleasure of meeting big-name actors like Ernie Hudson in Springfield, Massachusetts at one of the big Scare-A-Con conventions. I also interviewed Bret Michales from Poison on the radio and later shared the stage with him at the Mass Mutual Center. I met wrestling legend Jerry 'The King' Lawler in Pittsfield at one of the Big Time Wrestling events. I even walked by without knowing it, actor Claire Danes at a bar in Williamstown.

It's been fun meeting celebrities and getting pictures taken with them. Most of the ones I have met have been very friendly to me and never copped an attitude or had an arrogant personality. As I mentioned earlier, Massachusetts has been a breeding ground for many big-screen celebrities. While many of them have moved out of the state there have been times when some of them have returned to the Bay State for various reasons. Those names include Elizabeth Banks, Mark Wahlberg, and Matt Damon just to name a few.
