Gene Simmons from Kiss is the nicest guy in the world, I was working security and he passed me in the hallway and shook my hand and thanked me for working the club he was in, truly nice guy.

That mustn't be too difficult these days, lol. All she has to do is avoid the Lifetime and Hallmark networks.

Had nice chats with Geoffrey Rush and William Hurt, both friendly and talkative.

The Pixies were very friendly and kind to me when I met them backstage in 1989.

Aimee Mann was good-natured.

"Uh...excuse me Paul, we're from the States, and we're going to be recording over here and we're huge fans could we ask a couple of questions?"

Huge smile, leans back against a wall and say "Great sure, yeah what part of the States?" and on it went. He was just super nice.


As time went on and we began recording on Abbey Road, we ended up meeting the rest of them, and to a person they were as down to earth as you could imagine. You had groups like Pink Floyd walking around the studio like they were hot stuff, while all 4 Beatles would walk down the hall and nod to you as you went by.

Surreal.. thrill of a lifetime!


That is so cool. Lucky you!!!

I was infront of Korn one time at the security check at JFK. I kept trying to go through but they were standing so close to the machine when is go through their piercings kept setting it off. After the third time going through I was clearly irritated, (having to de dress in a hurry got me 3/4 of the way there). But once they realized and saw I was irritated they apologized and backed up. Very nice

Then I met tom jones after a concert of his I went to at the Myerson. It was out back where his bus was he was in a hurry. I was driving by and saw so one of the friends I was with yelled out the window, "hey tom can we get a picture?!" He turned his head when he heard his name called, he said sure. His manager i guess, kept trying to push him up the steps of the buss but he pushed him away and took a picture with us. Very nice. I'm a guy, but he looked good for his age and smelt very nice lol

My sister in law waited on him at her restaurant a while back and said he was super nice.

Nicest celebrities: Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. I met them in a London airport and they were awesome. The airline rep walking them to their gate told us not to approach them but Sharon said it was no problem and took pictures with us.

Rudest: I live in Vegas and have friends who work at the high end casinos who have said the following:
Tiger Woods is a stuck-up a**hole and horrible tipper. Ditto for Michael Jordan. Charles Barkley is really cool.
Nicholas Cage is a raging alcoholic and typical Hollywood narcissist.
Ice-T and CoCo are super friendly and sweet. Holly Madison from Girls Next Door is a sweetheart, I know a guy who worked backstage at her show.
Sheryl Crow: absolute beyotch.
Rod Stewar: very nice and very generous

I also have a friend who works as a flight attendant on private jets who said:
Mariah Carey is a freaking weirdo. Her assistants have to baby her and literally do everything for her minus wiping her a**
Hilary Clinton is super fake and stuck up. Her secret service told the flight staff not talk or make eye contact with her unless spoken to.

I travel quite a bit and meet a lot of celebrities. I came across a guy and his entourage not long ago that gave me a chuckle. I had no idea who he was but figured he was "somebody" and it turns out he was Wiz Khalifa (I had to look up how to spell that). He was very nice and the group was very quiet. The group as a whole really reeked of, let's say, Colorado if you get my drift. We weren't in Colorado. They were very nice, very quiet and going to do a show. I didn't get any bad boy rapper attitude.

Train band. Oh my, lead singer, likes his alcohol.

Adam Levine. Genuine, nice. Wonderful.

Maroon 5, All of them Wonderful

Kelly Clarkson. Wonderful, sweet, the real deal.

Alex Trebek. Arrogant

Franco Harris. Gentleman, nice.

The late Rosemary Clooney was around when I was a little girl. Very nice to me as a child. Always stooped down to speak to me and treated me as a person.

Jeremy Roenick. Fantastic. Love him, very kind to my kids.

Dolly Parton. Truly an amazing woman. Very generous. Kind. Down to earth. Warm and makes you feel great when you are around her.

Will write more later. Love this thread.

Beretta, I'm not surprised to read Alex Trebek is arrogant. He comes off like such a d-bag on Jeopardy. I always hate the way he condescendingly gives the correct answers after the players mess up. Like he really knows that much about 4th century Roman candlemaking or whatever the subject is.
