    My friends dad was in a famous 90s techno band (10 points if you can guess which one).

    Said hello and had pictures / autographs from a few, but those I've actually had a chat to are in a small group:

    Prince Phillip
    JK (as in Jamiroquai, not Harry Potter)

    Not at the same event, I hasten to add.

    I've met Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt at a book signing

    Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro and the TV presenter Neil Oliver are both from my hometown and I've seen them a few times and I've seen the cast of Still Game in Glasgow.

    Best for last, I got to talk to Damon Albarn after a Gorillaz gig at MEN Arena in 2010 :love:

    Omg, I forgot about Edinburgh Fringe Festival! I've lost count how many people I saw there but some notable ones were Jack Whitehall, Dylan Moran, Sean Hughes and the most random of all - the actress who played Stiffler's Mom in American Pie :laugh:

    Enter Shikari where at a HMV in my city once and i spoke to Rory C and Rou there.
    They're nice guys.

    So did I when I was 11 :rofl:
    But if I had to choose one now, I'd definitely go for Nick. I like his aesthetic better.
    OMG I actually remembered that these guys were wearing purity rings and Kevin was the first to marry. He actually lost his virginity on his wedding night and I read in a magazine that he said 'it was not such a big deal'
    Joe was the cheekiest though lol
