yeah, most recently ended up dancing with some girl named Tara Reid at ghostbar in Vegas (NYE 2003, pre-botched boobjob). I didn't know who she was at the time.

ran into several at the Hollywood Stage on Santa Monica Blvd. NYE 93 i think it was, we stole a van and drove from San Francisco to LA go to go K-Rave (at knotts berry farm amusement park). When we arrived we found they were sold out and gangbangers were everywhere- but that was okay because we got turned onto a much better underground venue by a loved-up group in the parking lot. That night I became best mates for an hour with Al B Sure (this time I knew the name, but couldn't have named any of his tunes) and had a half hour discussion about beats and circles with some bitchy girl from 90210, I think her name was Tiffany - you'd know her if you saw her. She was bitchy on the show (at least in the commercials, can't say I watched the show), but she was quite nice in person (and presumably on a pill!). :-)

Was a strange and wonderful night, there were loads of other celebrities of the time that have since slipped from memory. doc martin showed up for a surprise set around daybreak and played a hard set, which was completely out of character but pretty damn good nonetheless.

I was VIP at the main venues and darkest dives of San Francisco at the time, so saw quite a few famous people passing through & seeking decadence over the years...

Of course, I'll take any excuse to tell my best celeb story- Alicia Silverstone asked me for a kiss on her 16th birthday... when I was 24... in front of her parents! She pulled me into the living room and when I kissed her, she got a little tongue in there before I backed off (her age aside, I had some lame yet very strict rule at the time about not dating the sisters of friends & I'd been friends with her brother Dave for a while by then so she was off limits in my eyes).

I'm sure as soon as I post I'll think of more....

There were rumours of Patsy Palmer of 'Bianca' fame chewing her face off at Oscars in Clacton BITD. My ex said she saw both Sean McGuire (remember him?) and Tony from Hollyoaks at The Cross.
And I saw Ellis Dee at a breaks night at SE1 about 3 years ago. He was spannered. So much in fact that i refrained from wandering up and asking why he used to bust all those spinbacks on his mixes back in 1992!

Pamela Anderson and Ice T were at World Dance London Arena, apparently Ice T said it was too repetitive! Fuck off back to the hood then.

Mr Motivator also used to dance on the stage at Lydd.

I've seen what I thought was Mr Motivator on stage at Dreamscape. (so was it MC Motivator? Fucking looked like him. But then, my vision wasn't exactly what you would call 20/20 at that point....)

Does he count as 'famous' though?

And I SWEAR I saw Erkan Mustafa, AKA Roland from Grange Hill, MCing at Berwick Manor in 91. <!-- s:? --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/confused.gif" alt=":?" title="Confused" /><!-- s:? -->

Haha. I'm sure I read on here about Roland being seen at the Tasco Warehouse as well, apparently not the friendliest of people - but if you had folk coming up to you all the time shouting &quot;oi, Roland&quot; you probably wouldn't be very sociable either.

I didn't see him, but several of my mates saw Gaz Topp from How 2 (and previously, er, Motormouth I think) at a Future Dance event a few years ago at Bagleys, apparently eating his face.

I always wandered about that. I have a Sy tape from Fibre optic in 94 with Mc Motivator and it does sound just like the dude!

lol it prob was roland as i know he was on the scene, a friend of mine held a party in 1990 in my home town (Ipswich) and a friend of his came down from London to DJ and the DJ brought a couple of mates with him, one being roland <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> after the party we chipped back to my friends for a session, including roland, it was bizzare but quality passing spliffs to rolly after growing up watching him on TV <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Jason Dazel, old Ipswich, Coventry and Tottenham player, he was out constant in the early days, this is when he was playing in the premier aswell, i remember we used to say we need to take a picture and sell it to the news paper to make some cash <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Reg Hollis (is that right?) the geeky one from The bill. Anyway saw him at the Astoria in 1990.

And the last one but this is pre house/hardcore days, i saw zamo and one other dude from grange hill (can't remember his name) at a hip-hop event in 1986 at wembley arena.

Not seen at a rave but I remember reading an interview with David James in Shoot magazine when he first started playing for Watford and he was well into his hardcore and used to go out and had decks.

Me too. I saw him there and he scrounged a Rizla off me or the other way round.

I remember seeing him there as well most weekends - although that was when it was still a skating rink. Always had a stupid white beret on :-)
