Friendly Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.
Here is one celebrity encounter that I got before my friend Glen Rylko. Despite meeting a lot of celebs, I always seem to miss the big ones that Glen gets. Not this time though.
Glen met Billy Corgan during Billy's time at Resistance Pro. As has been documented many times, I met Billy many times obviously during his time at RPro. Score one for me on beating Glen to Billy!
I don't think Glen is as petty as me. He's probably not keeping a tally. Besides, he did meet Billy, unlike the many celebs he has met who I have not.
Of course, I am just kidding about the competition. Glen is a great guy and gets to meet some interesting celebrities. Sometimes we even manage to meet some of the same ones.
I am sure Glen and I will continue to meet celebs. I'm even okay if he meets a few before I do. This general statement does not apply to Billy Joel though.
