Good thread, I've got a few more:
Met Steve Mcclure in Spain and ended up climbing with him for the day, I was pretty star-struck at the time. Later that year I moved up to Sheffield and see him at the Climbing Works party dancing hypnotically on a podium, can't for the life of me imagine why... I wander over to him and try to say hello when after about 10 seconds a female member of his entourage barks at me: 'JUST LET THE MAN DANCE!' I scurried off after that
Again at the works, was wandering over with some mates in Super Mario fancy dress for the CWIF. Megos jumps out of a car and asks if he can take our photo. Last we ever heard of that...
In Pete's Eats a couple of years ago trying to find a table I see some seats next to John Redhead and a mate of his. I asked him 'can we sit here please?' He replied: 'I dunno, CAN You???' mind-blowing stuff... we just sat down.
