Dane Cook, Jeremy Piven, and Kid Rock.

CAVEAT: I'm only happy about this one because I like to pretend that the ceiling caved in two seconds after this photo was taken killing all three where they stood.

I like this photo, not totally unlikely, but still a whole lot of famous. Saw first on an ILM thread, I think.

I thought that was Charles Bronson for a moment (this bone), can honestly say I would not have expected to see him photographed with Cyndi Lauper. that is still a neat picture, though

Dylan hanging out with Mick and Keef? Not sure why this would be surprising, but it is cool.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 20 March 2015 00:31 (6 days ago) Permalink

Actually, I saw a little Pete Townshend show a few years back, and he told a story about the one - one! - time he ever spoke with Bob Dylan. So maybe it is kinda weird!

Some good photos of people hangin' with Bob:

If this was Audrey's party, the deer was probably alive. If it was Anthony's party, it was likely dead and stuffed.

Where's Graham Gouldman?

pplains, Friday, 20 March 2015 13:45 (6 days ago) Permalink

Actually, I saw a little Pete Townshend show a few years back, and he told a story about the one - one! - time he ever spoke with Bob Dylan. So maybe it is kinda weird!

The anecdote Pete sometimes tells is of Bob coming up to him backstage after a 1969 Who show and saying, "Pete, I'd like to stay, but I've got another appointment."

But they've apparently met again since:

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 20 March 2015 14:01 (6 days ago) Permalink

Pete said he asked Dylan something like "what makes someone a folk singer?" and Dylan's response was I think "a good memory."

Wouldn't expect to see Plant hanging with Ronstadt:

Or Bolan:

But snogging Collins? Sure:
