Star Struck

Living in Nashville I've met many stars and even guided a few so I don't usually get too excited. Last night I've got to admit, I was a little star struck. We were downtown to attend a David Gray concert and decided to grab some Sushi from Kato. As we are walking in, my wife says "there he is". I'm like there who is? David Gray!!! I look down and he's sitting right in front of the door looking at us :) . Then the waitress comes by and seats us right next to him. We didn't bother him because I know how much most of them hate to be interrupted, but **** I wanted to. He's been an idol of mine for decades. IMO one of the best singer/songwriters of our time. The show was acoustic at a performing arts center and as usual, it was an amazing performance.

    I saw him with a full band a couple of summers ago. Great show.

    I've never met a celebrity. Not even a minor one.

    I have no idea who David Gray is....


    when I was a kid I hung out with Bob Cousy, Curt Gowdy and a bunch of NBA Hall of Famers.....

    John Calipari gave me a pizza once.....

    I met the Beastie Boys, after ingesting mescaline, which was pretty cool.....

    I've never met one, but rode in an elevator with Soupy Sales.
