Ever met a celebrity and didn’t recognize her or him? When staying in Stockholm for a couple of days in early April 1993 I literally stumbled across Mel Gibson when he was leaving the Grand Hotel for an interview to local journalists. I haven’t seen anything but Bird on a wire (years ago) and didn’t recognize him until somebody dropped his name. After a bunch of screamin‘ kids left the place and journalists started taking pics and asking questions, I just joined in and took some nice ones as well. And got an autograph into my Baedeker. Didn’t have any other piece of paper to write on and still remember his puzzled gaze at me. I just nodded in return and he signed it… Funny guy back then.
