Encounters With Celebrities/Jermaine Jackson

This encounter was exceptional because we both had a lengthy conversation about music. It happened in 2006 in front of a Starbucks coffee shop in Beverly Hills and I was sitting at a table in front when he appeared. He sat opposite of me on the other side of the entrance at another table with his assistant so I said hello.

I told him that I was a singer and at that time was when I was in complete rock-mode. I had been ferociously auditioning for rock bands to sing with. He has..... or had a recording studio and produces music but I guess that I was slightly intimidated by the prospects therefore not hinting that I would be interested in working with him. I just simply thought that I wasn't good enough.

We talked for half an hour about music and people were recognizing him so he would wave to them on the street. It was cool running into him and I thoroughly enjoyed the conversation. I got up to leave and as I was doing so was when his assistant was ready to take down my number but I did not oblige. I did run into him again a few weeks later. If I were to run into him now then I would definitely work with him should he offer me the chance to do so...... who knows?
