William Shatner...Las Vegas,Nevada.The Tropicana.My wife and myself for our 2nd anniversary in Nov.,1987.I spotted Captain Kirk with a blonde walking thru the casino while we were standing on line for "Follies Bergere". I turned as he passed me and reached out to shake his hand.I told him I was a huge fan and would just like to shake his hand.In a very curt tone he told me to go F**K OFF and get a life.Afterwards my wife said to me,"Well, do you still think he's the greatest thing since sliced bread!!!"

Madonna called me a ...sorry Muzz, a Fu---ng bitch because we were shooting "A League Of Their Own" and she walked into my trailer when we were at Wrigley Field and said, quote, "Was there a man in here? 'cause it stinks bad like it"...I said, "honey, I have to shower and use Mitchumm or I'd smell like one too",. I said no more and she walked out of the mu-up trailer and slammed the door so hard it broke. A half hour later, Penny Marshall had her apolozize, and I said, 'f. u.' I don't need this shit, I'm union. Then they begged me to stay. I did. eye crazy bitch...

When I was in high school my girlfriend and I saw George Szell and The Cleveland Orchestra at what was then called "The RKO State Theater," in New Brunswick. (The same State Theater Eric appeared at with Ringo). Aunt Muriel Carmen was in the viola section at that concert, also, but since it was back in the early 1960s and long before I would ever discover Raspberries, I had no idea who she was at the time.

The orchestra had the most pure and perfect string sound of any in its time or since, so I was thrilled to see them perform and beside myself about meeting Szell and asking for an autograph. When we did he was intently talking to some orchestra official or musician friend. We waited for a long time and after awhile he turned around and asked us what we wanted in a very annoyed tone. I told him I was thrilled to meet him and asked for his autograph. He wildly scribbled it and shouted, "Here it is now, get the hell out of here!" We were both terrified and decided he wasn't a very nice man. I found out later most of his own friends found him difficult at best and many to most professional musicians and fellow conductors hated him.

However, he hired Eric's Aunt Muriel, even though he didn't believe in hiring women at all. She was the first woman he hired and his standards were impossibly high, so that tells you how great a violist she was. She also managed to get along with him enough to want to stay in that monumentally great orchestra for her long tenure there. That says a whole lot about Aunt Muriel's tolerance and fortitude!

I met Eric Carmen and his beautiful wife Suzie at his birthday party at Bernie's in 2007.Sadly,Mr. Carmen did not say anything insulting to me.He did say thank you for the fresh raspberry birthday cake I brought him.Eric Carmen is head and shoulders above Shatner in personality.

Charles Schultz called me an 'idiot' over the phone. I had written a couple of Cheerios commercials that used the Peanuts gang. When I called to get his approval of the copy he decided it was 'beat up the new copywriter day'. (The commercials ended up running exactly how I wrote them.)

Rest in peace, Chuck.

Gary Puckett. It wasn't actually an insult, but I went to see him in a "Flower Power Concert" at Disney World. It was an open air theater, and there were NO signs anywhere saying you couldn't videotape, and there was no "announcement" before the concert saying you couldn't, in fact, many other 60's bands were there, like The Buckinghams and Grass Roots, and people were allowed to record and not a word was said. Then Gary Puckett came onstage... I always liked him, and in fact, I had met him a few years earlier at a concert, and he was extremely nice. But this time around, a few minutes after Puckett came onstage, I was taping (as were countless others), and this really nasty security guard tapped me on the shoulder and said something like "Gary wants you to stop taping... NOW". I said "what?", because he just took me by surprise. He said "shut the camera off, or I'll escort you out of Epcot". I turned the camera off and pointed out that any number of people were taping. He said "Gary feels you're taping too much and you may be selling copies"!!! I didn't want to make a scene, but in some ways, I wish I had... I was basically singled out because I was in Gary's eyeshot, and was threatened to be tossed out of Epcot for doing something NO ONE said you couldn't do, and no signs were posted, plus I was proven guilty without any facts. "He felt I might sell tapes"??? Whatthehell?!

I still like his music, I still listen to his cd's, but as a person, that day he went to the bottom of the barrel on my list. angrymad

A similar thing happened at the EPCOT outdoor theater in Nov.2007 during a Chubby Checker show.They didn't announce a "No taping" policy,and there were absolutely no signs forbidding it.However when I took out my camcorder to record Chubby, a security man was on me in seconds telling me to put the camcorder away or be escorted off the property.

As some of you know I used to be a die-hard Kiss fan. While staying in Sydney in 2001 at the same hotel as the band I walked up to some friends of mine who were in this large crowd. I was oblivious as to who was standing there. I was apologizing to my friends because the night before we all went to a show at the Olympic Stadium there and we were supposed to meet up after the show as we were not sitting all together. I went out the wrong exit door and couldn't find them or the cab we were taking back to the hotel. Anyway - I was apologizing to them about it and then I got in the elevator and went up to my room. The insulting remark came from Gene who was apparently standing right next to them and I just wasn't even paying attention (actually the entire freaking band was standing there and I just didn't even seem to care lol). I would love to tell you what the insult was but it would be thrown into the Cartoon forum for adult content. Needless to say I have no respect for that man at all!!!

Jack Palance called me 'short Frankenstein' at a Halloween party. It was true, but still...

Omigod, Jack lived in my city all his life (of course, there WAS that "other" home in Hollywood too). He spent a lot of time here at his farm, and he acted pretty "normal" for the most part. He waited his turn patiently at restaurants and grocery stores and stuff, he never pulled that "I'm important, take care of me NOW" routine.

A lot of local servers in restaurants said they didn't like him, and some even refused to wait on him, they'd give the table to another server, but honestly, I never had one bit of a problem from him, I always found him to be very polite. He did have a habit of drawing nude women while he waited for his food tho haha

He'd draw on the back of a (paper) placemat, then he'd sign it, and leave it, along with his pen and your tip. Just one of his quirks, I guess.
