A friend of mine had a cousin who happened to also be a cousin of Jim Kerr from Simple Minds. Although my friend was not actually related to Jim Kerr she referred to him as her half cousin. Another friend used to boast that she and Simon Le Bon were at school together, they did indeed go to the same school but not at the same time. Anyone else got any vague claims to fame?

My next door neighbour said he was in the Beatles before they were famous. He packed it in to become and electrician.
I suspect this might not be true (not the electrician bit though).

Thanks for all of these.I really don't want to blow my own trumpet, but obviously I win because I started a thread that was commented on by loads of people who are spuriously linked to loads of famous people!!!!

I love these Bono stories. I'd stamp on his hat in a heartbeat.

I slept with someone, who slept with someone else that slept with Russel Brand

I hope you had a good wash afterwards.

At gd's school one of the parents is a famous actor. I have seen him a few times - but I don't know his name - or what he's been in
I might be a bit crap at this

I've got a few Grin
I danced on stage with Bruce Springsteen at Roundhay in 1985 to Dancing in the dark. I was an extra in Rita, Sue and Bob too.
My dad knew Kiki Dee in the 1960's when she was plain Pauline Matthews.
My mum worked in the chip shop of the parents of a member of Smokie in the 1970's.
Alex from Coronation Street went to primary school with my two eldest boys.
I'm thrilled with the first one, made my teenage years!
