    So I didn't want to be the guy that bugs Alex for a pic while he's out with his wife and kids eating.

    But I was the guy who snapped a semi-creepy, TMZ-style pic while we were walking to our cars

    would have been great for more info, but just to be able to see him was cool

    I probably would have semi-shouted "Hey Big-Al!" maybe saying "see you in a few months" and then winking. Then carry on as usual.

    I would've asked why he is in the same town as the kardashians. He's alex fucking van halen.

    But still cool. I only ever to see ball players and Clark Howard on occasion.

    Calabasas makes sense. I understand that people who like horses like Calabasas because there are lots of mini ranches and riding trails and arenas etc. I believe that before it became developed as suburbia it was a ranch and horse area. I heard Alex's wife is into dressage or something.

    There are still a few trails around there. Now it's just an expensive area to live.

    I think you did the right thing TMS. I was in a bistro in Niagra Falls on the Canada side which is much better than the US side if you ever go. Joe Perry was there with what looked to be his family they played in Toronto the day before I was there. You should have seen all the A holes going to his table I felt sorry for the guy. They left pretty quick too. I was 10 feet from them. Alex would not tell you anything. I think we had a poster on here who ran into big Al in the grocery line 10 years ago or so. Always nice to see your favorite celebs just being us.

    As far as doing the right thing- when you see famous people out like that it's pretty obvious whether or not they want to be bothered.

    I saw Jon Cryer last year on my trip to LA for a wedding. He was walking down Hollywood Blvd. at 8am on a Sunday with his wife and child. They were out for a walk, just having a good time. Given those parameters, he was just trying to be Joe Average. Would he have been approachable? I assume that on Hollywood Blvd. the answer would be yes.

    If he had been out there six hours later, when the streets were packed, by himself, then yes, he would be wanting attention.

    In this particular case, I think you did the right thing. Although the stalker photo I don't think I would've done.

    You should have asked him if it was a conscious decision not to use any toms in the song "Cabo Wabo" or if he was just being lazy that day.

    Absolutely, I would never go up to someone like that at a restaurant, it is rude in almost every case.

    I first walked by his table and recognized it was Al and family sitting there. But we both just happened to walk to the parking lot at the same time and parked like 3 cars away from each other. So the photo was slightly less stalker and more just semi-creepy opportunity

    I actually had almost the same exact experience seeing EVH and Wolf around 2002-2003. Was in a Halloween shop and noticed EVH/WVH were in the next aisle shopping. Of course Wolf was like 10 or so. Anyway I didn't go up to him for the same reason. Dude just trying to get a costume with his kid.

    I sat through a whole game next to Anderson Cooper once. We talked like fans sitting next to each other, but I never once even acknowledged that I knew who he was.

    My days of being star struck are long gone.

    Nicest celebrity I have ever met is a certain Samuel Roy Hagar.

    (2) When SRH kept talking about aliens?
