Met Korn before they were famous. Was working at the Fire Station in Bossier city and got called to a RV that was leaking fuel at a gas station. Pulled up and these weird guys walked up and said that the RV was theirs and that they hit something on the road and it started leaking gas. That thing was a complete piece of crap! They were on tour and were traveling back to Atlanta. This had to be around 1995. Who knew they would make it big.

I met Soulja Slim in 2001. He was one of the coolest people you could meet. He gave me his a cd with his single at the time off the Streets Made Me album. He also saw a dude who only had about 3 dollars for gas money in the store we were in and filled his tank up for him.

Robert Plant at hotel in Nashville. Had several conversations with him throughout the weekend. Said he loved NO and loved playing there. He brought up playing there in 1970 at Warehouse with Steve Mariott and Humble Pie. I happened to be at that concert.
