    Nope and other than for the concerts, Cash was never in prison. Spent a few one-nighters in local jails though.

    I sat next to Danny Devito on a flight from Atlanta to Minneapolis once. He is a short dumpy little fellow and was just as nice as he could be. I worked on a set of drawings and he asked a few questions and acted interested in what I was doing. When we landed he told me he appreciated not being bombarded with questions and asked for a business card, I never heard anything of it.

    I'll tell you a little story.
    Long before I had ever picked up a chainsaw, I worked in the kitchen of the finest restaurant in the state.
    Late one Friday we were told to get ready for a 20+ person table. They showed up and they looked like a biker gang. Leather and beards. Then the last two to walk in sat down. Both pretty little women. The one sitting at the head of the table was Sheryl Crow(All I Wanna Do is Have Some Fun) facing me across a big table of her band and roadies. They stayed for hours drinking and whooping it up. When they left they didn't want to be followed so they ducked out through the kitchen. It just so happened that at that moment I was cramming gourmet cheese And crackers in my face. So in walks Sheryl Crow and I say/spit in her face "Have a nice night"

    I left out Ryan Hunter. He let me in his Indy garage for a close-up look at his car. He seemed like any other guy I have met at race tracks.
    He spent 20 minutes talking to some old WW2 guys when I know he was tight on time.

    Rode an elevator in The Pfister Hotel with Bart Star and Vince Lombardi. My mouth was open I think but I didn't speak to them I was about 16 at the time.

    Chatted to Jay Leno a while, we were watching a blue ray edition of Easy rider in a store and making jokes about harleys and talking bikes in general, he said I was funny (I wondered if he was trying to pick me up). Spent most of a day walking and talking with wendy wilson of wilson phillips fame and talked with Mayim Bialik at a party for about an hour. All in a week staying with a friend in west hollywood who was very well connected. She was house sitting for someone in manhatten beachI promised never to name to anyone. (they are not that famous now though)

    As a kiwi I had NO idea who those people were at the time. In fact it was only after watching about 2 seasons of the big bang theory a decade afterwards I clicked to who Mayim was. (my friend who knew her told me not to call her blossum, i had no idea why anyone might call someone that).

    A few weeks ago I met Dean Kamen. My son won an award for a robotics competition and we toured his house and heard him speak several times. Son got an autographed book.
    He invented the segway and has over 400 other patents. Designed his own house and helicopter. Very rich!!

    Mayim Bialik grew up in San Diego and got her first acting job (Pumpkinhead (1988)) when she was just 12 years old. A number of TV roles followed until in 1990 she was cast in Blossom (1990), the role which made her famous.

    By 1993, while Blossom was still airing, she had already won a deferred place at Harvard and was also accepted by Yale but chose in the end to attend UCLA. She was awarded her Bachelor's degree in 2000 and began reading for a PhD in Neuroscience (studying Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder in adolescents with Prader-Willi syndrome) which she eventually completed in 2007.

    She continued working throughout her studies and was a regular on US TV screens, becoming a Prime Time face again in 2010 when she began her regular appearances as "Sheldon's friend who is not his girlfriend" in the hit series The Big Bang Theory (2007).
