We've had a few threads about knowing/meeting famous people. Have any of you had a schoolmate, family friend, coworker, etc, later go on to achieve fame and renown?
I thought of this because I just saw an ad for Yanni's latest CD. I never knew Yanni personally, but he was the keyboardist in a popular local band when I was in college. We used to chat quite a bit with the other band members after shows, but not Yanni, he always seemed a bit more business-like.
