Tom Dreesen is one of the most under-rated comedians of all-time. He and I have stayed in touch after I interviewed him for Autograph Magazine, and I feel blessed to have heard so many great stories from him over the years.…Continue
I'm a huge Black Crowes fan (I wrote about them, and White Stripes, in a column years ago).
Crowes singer Chris Robinson is a tough autograph to get. He'll sign, but just a few as he's walking by.
One time, his pregnant wife -- actress Kate Hudson -- was at the show. Now, I was once standing next to Kevin Bacon's actress wife at a concert (can't think of her name at the moment). She was dancing the night away.
