Gense Simmons doesn't have a wife, only a "Girlfriend" my friend wink.gif


Good point, in that case I saw Gene Simmons and Shannon his long time Girlfriend and mother of his children! (and wife to all intents and purposes!)

I've never met or seen any musicians, but I've seen some Norwegian TV celebrities such as Thomas Numme, a talkshow host who stood right in front of me on the airport metal detectors once, and another TV host Elin Tvedt the very same day ^^

I went on tour with Mark Knopfler and travelled with the crew for a couple of weeks last year. I helped out with all the different sectors of the tour, for example: sound, catering, rigging, guitar tech, drum tech etc.

I spoke to Mark Knopfler a few times during the two weeks and also jammed with the guitarist. It was awesome! biggrin.gif

That would be awesome. I'm jealous of that. He's coming in concert this Summer and I plan to see him.

I've been in the movie biz for 20 years. Met many actors & filmmakers. The only musician I've met is Neil Young - I'm editing a concert movie of his. I'll post a link when it's finished. It rocks!
