RSB / NYC celebrity sightings

I announced to the band as we entered the Holland Tunnel, that a sighting of someone considered famous has become a staple to each visit to Manhattan.
Now "famous" can be a relative term, dependent on the supposed celebrity and their current relevance in our culture. But nonetheless, someone will appear before us that is of a moderate to high level of celebrity.

There was the rather infamous Brett Michaels near Times Square.

The has been famous Loretta Switt from Mash - you know Hot Lips Houlihan!

Who could forget the judge from People's Court or the bass player from RadioHead.

I informed the New York rookies (Tyler & Tank) of these past sightings so to be on the lookout for A, B & even C list celebrities walking the avenues of SoHO or shopping for sneakers in Times Square.

Not even an hour into the metropolitan excursion, Sure enough .. There he was. A fellow Texan. A cast member from one of my favorite movies ever. A Texas Longhorn. Anthony, Dignon's kid brother - aka LUKE WILSON.



Now, never mind that he seemed like he'd rather be at the dentist than talking to me.
Never mind that he immediately folded his arms for the photo as i awkwardly tried to put my arm around him -- soon realizing that's now how movie stars take such photos, i tried to make it look like a stretch before the big photo shot.

Never mind all that. We were just two fellas from Texas hanging out shooting the breeze in a record store in SoHo. (okay, technically..taylor & i did most of the talking and by hanging out i mean we stood there for 25 seconds, then scurried off like awestruck middle schoolers).

He was actually a nice guy and the Luke Wilson sighting moved to tops on the RSB/NYC celebrity sightings list, just inching past the former Poison front man.
What about you - Anyone random or crazy famous cross your path while in the Big Apple?

We had a blast in NYC, a great time with our friends at Rev Gen in New Jersey & a memorable concert here in Orlando tonight. So thanks to everybody who's come out to see us this weekend. We really appreciate it.

Happy happy Labor Day ,
Gustav Gustav go away.

My grandmother met Garth Brooks in NYC while Christmas shopping. The poor guy was just loading packages into the back of his SUV when my Nana recognized him and excitedly asked for an autograph. And nobody says no to my Nana! So she got his autograph for my sister, who is a HUGE fan.

Gotta love Manhattan! I passed Jackie Chan in Times Square a few years ago. I could barely see him as he was surrounded by his entourage - which drew even more attention to him. I've been there numerous times, and Jackie's all that I have spotted. Your visits only seem to be getting better!
