Every year, there's only two on my list... Danny DeVito and Hasselhoff. Every year my soul goes home a little more empty than before. Yet there is always hope. Maybe this is the year.

Every year, there's only two on my list... Danny DeVito and Hasselhoff.

these are the only 2 I've seen walking around the grounds. the Hoff was chowing down in the food court and everyone was tempted to say hi and shake his hand and give him a bit of a hard time about the burger thing, but we decided to just let him eat in peace.

I'm pretty sure I saw Danny Masterson 2 years ago in the sahara, but I wasn't 100% sure if it was him. I know he goes all the time though.

of course, I've seen tons on the sides of stages but I don't think that really counts.

Sean Penn, Paris Hilton, Hoff, Perry Ferrell

Sean Penn was there for his speech at the main stage. I was backstage with my son and we saw him there. We asked for an autograph he said not right now...which was fine. My son was running around and having fun. We look over and Sean starts to light up a cig. and security quickly smacks it out of his mouth and stomps on it.
Penn was shocked...before he could utter a word security say's 'Take a look!' There were a bunch of propane tanks less than 10 yards away. Penn went from a look of WTF to 'Awww shit. I should have seen that' He said, 'Sorry about that!' was a little embarrased then walked over to me and my son and said he'd be happy to sign an autograph.

Paris Hilton - we were in the artist parking walking towards the festival entrance backside and my buddy noticed her. We quickly walked up and saw it was her. We were side by side going in...nothing big...but the next week she was arrested....all we did was exchange Hi's

Perry was way cool. Back stage with my son I asked for a photo with my son and he said sure....was way cool with everyone...just had a fun way about him that those of his group seemed to be into.

Hoff was backstage at the main stage...he was super nice...didn't know he was that big....he is a large man. Gave a headshot...was with his daughter and was as kind as anyone could be to anyone and everyone he met.

In 2007 my wife and I are on our way to see KOL when she says "is that James Murphy?" I turn around and it is. Unfortunately he is walking very fast in the other direction. After a moment of panic we are now chasing him down. I yell out "James" as if we are long lost friends. He turns as if hoping to see a friend only to see two out of breath total strangers. I quickly say "we are really big fans, can we get a picture?" To which he replied "you don't look that big, sure." Nancy Whang took the picture. I wish I would have gotten her in it as well.

In 09 I was in the Sahara with my group waiting for Girl Talk to start when one of them noticed Gareth and Neil from Los Campesinos! We ended up hanging out with them for the rest of the night and on Saturday until they had to leave town. That same year we saw Mystery from the Pickup Artist by the beer garden (he's a giant and was wearing a cowboy hat with a miners light attached), Adrian Grenier with a big beard outside the Sahara and Alicia Silverstone during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Last year I saw the guy who plays Andy on Weeds by the lockers and Tiesto watching Yeasayer but my girlfriend forbade me from saying anything nasty to him.

Juliette lewis in regular parking several coachellas ago... She was with some fat C List actor and at the time I couldn't remember either of their names so I pointed at them and said "hey look they're famous" to my girlfriend... If I would've remembered their names I would've asked for a picture and offered them some of our bud brownies we were eating before entering fest -shrugs-

Paul T

well not really, he was right behind me in the back of the Sahara last year, and I was too shy (polite?) to interrupt him and his lady friend's good time. I do wish I threw him a thank you though.

edit- I also had just finished smoking lots of herb and was a bit paranoid that he was RIGHT behind me.

I was right beside a shirtless and potbellied David J from Bauhaus with his arms around his wife(?) in the Sahara during the Chemical Brothers in 2009...


..i did so many double takes that I assumed he noticed because when we finally locked with what I believe were eyes (he had shades on) he nodded as in "Yes, I'm that old grizzled goth rocker from that one band, now avert your eyes back to the stage and cease your gawking."

I obliged after that

Last Year during Club 75. I was sitting outside the Sahara minding my own business tripping on the Palms?/Grass??? IDK. I was leaning against the fence that divided the rose garden and a random guy stands next to me. I look at his wristband and it says "Artist". He knew I was way out of my head. I stare... take a double look and it was freaking James Murphy. All he said was 'Hi, you okay?' to which I nodded.

I got the nod of approval from DDV. I was laying on the grass smoking a blunt when DDV pushes his way out of the crowd. He sees me blazing away and gets a big ol' smile on his cute little face. He then gives me "the nod." It was awesome.

Flea asked me where the beer gardens were last year. Considering I was standing right outside them, I just pointed to the sign and said, "Right here." Then he smiled, said, "Yeah, stupid ass question", patted me on the back, and went on his merry way.

Cool story, I know.

This is true. :) We did talk about that a bit after. Overall cool guy man. We talked about the greatness that is Trident regular flavored gum. Then again, there was a smoky haze in the air amongst us, which likely sparked such nonsensical tales. Good times.

I was up front center for Gorillaz and Paris Hilton was standing about 5 feet away (spitting distance) from me during the first couple songs. The cunt was putting on cover up during the intro, not even attempting to watch what was happening on stage. I didn't look her was for a few more minutes, but when I did she took her compact out again and looked into the mirror. wtf

I am terrible at recognizing celebs so she's the only one in the 2 years i've attended that I have even noticed.

First of all....who cares? But here's a cool story...

A few years ago I was standing in line in the VIP to get a drink and the bass player from the Black Lips was right next to me. He looks at me and goes "watch this" as he jumps over the bar and grabs a giant bottle of Grey Goose while the bartenders weren't looking. Then he jumps back over and tells me "lets roll!". I sat under a tree for an hour with him getting super vodka shitty. Great time.

Southern California thing. He's been on our PBS stations forever and comes across as the NICEST and MOST INTERESTED person in the world. He travels the state visiting anything worth visiting. Anyone who has grown up here can do an impression of him or recognize when someone is attempting to. Huell did an hour on the Empire Polo Fields and Coachella in 2008 (Here's part 1) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28w2Tc55PvI). He LOVED it. i saw him in 2009. i have seen and met a lot of celebrities in my life and i about shit rainbows when i saw him. Sure enough he was SUPER NICE and INTERESTED in me and why i was at Coachella (without a camera following him).

In 2007 I seen Cisco Adler trying to get back stage and not being able to. I had the strongest urge to throw something at him.

I passed by Lily Allen that same year and my hand grazed hers. I'm almost positive she thought I was trying to steal her ring or something idk. When I looked down at her hand like sorry she had a huge ring on. Then I just looked up at her shrugged and kept walking. It was the weirdest thing.

I'm kinda hoping Paris Hilton is irrelevant enough to just not be there this year.

Not necessarily related but when I went to get Mika's autograph, I handed it to some spanish girl and walked away for a minute. She got it signed for me and said he was a bit of a douche and would only hug guys lol.

I just watched the entire Huell Howser show from Coachella. It was amazing. It was actually quite informative, since this will be my first. The best part is when he walks into the steam punk tree house. It's as if his head is about to explode from sheer amazement.

Can't remember the year (prob 08' or 09'), but I was dancing in the Do-Lab one night and my friend says "Hey Carmen Electra is behind you. I laughed and said "Yeah right, I wish". I turn around and sure enough there she was. SO HOT!!

Carmen Electra hasn't been hot in 10 years.

I spotted David Hasslehoff with his 20-something girlfriend on Saturday this year, said what's up, he was in a hurry and just kind of waved.

Also, about an hour after that, we were in the Sahara and the guy who plays Jesse in Breaking Bad walked by us. One of my friends asked him if he had any meth and Jesse gave him a really serious look as if he was in character and then busted up laughing. Good times.

In 2007 I worked security for free tickets, and I would usually work the backstage at the mainstage. I met the Arcade Fire, Lily Allen, Lupe Fiasco, and a few other bands I can't remember. These were just the "hey" type deals with a "hey" back. I saw a ton of other bands up close like RATM and RHCP.

I stopped Drew Barrymore from getting to the seating on the mainstage and I was like "Can I see your pass?" and she was like "ohhh I don't have one"...then the backstage manager guy was like "here come in" to her. She then said something like "oh, I know you're just doing your job" to me. I also checked in Cameron Diaz and Paris Hilton. I can't remember any one else at the moment. Working that coachella was hella fun.

I'm kinda the same way. I grew up on the Sunset Strip and did a lot of work for a bunch of different bands that have filtered through the venues there and at first, of course, you get the shock of meeting someone famous but after it keeps happening you realize they are just people. Nothing speical.

eh, they're people sure, but i only typically bother to introduce myself to celebrities that mean something to me (musicians primarily). i just like to offer a handshake and a thanks. they seem to enjoy that more than me hounding for an autograph or a picture.

Was standing in the beer gardens watching Arcade Fire and noticed a group of people dancing together off to my left, then looked closer and realized it was katy perry and her crew. Also saw Tyler the creator outside of the festival with what I assumed were other members of OF but they were pretty much terrorizing everyone within sight haha

09: nobody.

10: I ran into a tiny couple on my way from Miike Snow to Phoenix. I turned around to apologize and saw that it was Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens. Instead of apologizing I just pointed at them at disappeared into the crowd.

11: I was wearing my shirt as a cape and Katy Perry told me I looked like Superman and had a nice body. I laughed nervously and then yelled out "I have x-ray vision, too" like a creep as she walked away.

His body of work through 1992 was cool. I think something strange happened when the Coneheads movie came out.

But celebs (especially rock stars) hanging around in the regular VIP area have to count on getting some attention. My girl just walked up an asked for a photo and he snapped and yelled at her. Lucky for that little punk I was on the other side of the fields. And I suppose lucky for me cuz I'm sure some heavy security would have ruined my day after I folded up Fleabag like a road map.

oh man. this is one guy I would seriously like to shake hands with and thank him. You should have done that for me.

I think the key is hanging out to the right of the outdoor stage. Celebs seemed to be coming from there in droves.

1) Asked to take a picture of Josh Homme in the guest area before the Buzzcocks Weekend 1. Told him he regularly kicked ass. Noticed Tim Roth (not pictured) standing next to him and let him know he kicked ass as well.

2) Shook the hand of Jimmy Cliff as i was exiting and he was entering the Artist Compound. Told him the show was great and he said "Thank you." (blurry pic after this not included)

http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7218/7081152951_59f4ab3d32_c.jpg
3) Talked to Scott Kirkland from Crystal Method after Feist about stuff that included our past connection through Groove Radio.

4) Got to meet Gary Tovar (founder of Goldenvoice) at Kasabian 2nd Weekend. Told him "Gary! i'm an Olympic / Perkins Palace kid" He liked that.

5) Ran into Fred Arminsen and Rebecca from Wild Flag in the Guest Area after PULP. Told Fred he was doing everything right.

6) Brief encounter with Ritchie Sambora in the Guest Area after the Hives. Told him if GV did Rockchella, they would be a great headliner. He liked that. (Have a picture of Ritchie and board member Missy together)

7) Radiohead was coming into their trailer area as i was going out. Was standing next to Thom Yorke. When he was done talking to someone else, i said to him "This is the closest i will ever be to you. You're the best. Looking so forward to tonight's show." Shook his hand (which i was careful not to hurt) and went away.

(disclaimer: this was not AT coachella but NEAR it, don't hassle me)
sunday morning after RH played, I went into Koffi in palm springs and while waiting in line, glanced behind me to see a certain someone.
didn't say anything, felt it would be inappropriate as he seemed to be enjoying his day off...

I met Gary Tovar right before Jeff Mangum. I had seen him enter the vip/guest area in front of the outdoor theatre and I immediatedly noticed Paul Tollett walking in, and Gary Tovar was with him, and Gary makes eye contact with me. He walks up to me at the barricade and says "You know who that guy is? He's the king of Coachella." I told him I knew and then he said "and I founded Goldenvoice!" I shoke his hand and then off he went. Very cool. I saw him later in the VIP/Guest for Justice.

How did I miss Josh? I was at that Buzzcocks show grrrrrrrrr!

My "celebrity" brush was at Justice when Jamie Kennedy stood near us. About 4 of us tried to hit him in the head with a beach ball and failed. The highlight was my friend Dave yelling "hey Malibu's Most Wanted, FUCK YOU!"

We also got to say hi to Chromeo who was at that show as well.

the paparazzi are so creepy. there was some famous dude sitting in the grass outside mainstage vip sunday. these camera guys all crowd together and get on the ground in the prone position like they are trying to hide, also sitting behind people sitting in the grass and shooting between them for cover. you're not fooling anyone douchebags. then they continue to gather like wolves who smell a fresh kill, more and more, just staring waiting for a good shot and when it happens every single one of them raises their camera and starts shooting. it's the staring that is the worst. i sat close by and stared and took pictures of them just to fuck with them and you could tell they were uncomfortable. god, they are gross.

POST!!! I've never seen the paparazzi before- I would love to see what these guys look like.

We saw him in the beer garden, right next to the big lion statute. My friend was staring at him, trying to figure out, "Is that Pierce Brosnan?" He got annoyed and left, lol.

Doesn't most of the Entourage cast attend many years?

I was standing behind Adrian Grenier and his girlfriend in 2009 while watching Junior Boys. About 3 songs into the set, her nudges her, they turn around and leave. Dude walks straight through me as he leaves (it wasn't that crowded). He's either a huge duche or was really high/drunk. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt (even though he seemed sober).

This wasn't at Coachella, but I met Seth Green on Friday after getting kicked out of a club on Hollywood Boulevard. He's really short. I was wasted and kept grabbing his tits and telling him how much I love robot chicken (which is not exactly true). He was a good sport though.

Stood next to and talked to Josh Meyers, from Mad TV and Seth Meyers brother, during Gary Clark Jr wk2. We were both just so amazed by GCJr. The heat in the tent was worth it to see him play.
Also saw ASAP Rocky and his pose walking around Sunday afternoon of wk2. I figured something was off when I saw guys walking around with Budweiser 40oz on the fields. Then saw those french braids and gold teeth and realized it was ASAP.

I'm not so sure about that, anyone who knows anything about sports either watched the Woman's World Cup last year or knows her story considering Hope Solo and her(and to a lesser degree Alex Morgan) are the face of woman's soccer. Im willing to wager that at least 20%-30% of the coachella crowd would recognize her.

My friend who went weekend 1 got a photo with her and was super stoked. Of course, she works for Fox Soccer, so she had no problem identifying her. I would have probably recognized her, but I'm a soccer fan.

Don't know his name, but the brother from Heroes (that's what people around me referred to him as) asked my car camping neighbor for Molly (my neighbor wasn't a dealer but knew where to get it). When this guy was called out, he suddenly got nervous and excused himself. I'm pretty sure it was him, though I only watched parts of a couple episodes of Heroes before. He was quite handsome, douchey hat and all.

I saw Seth Green in the parking lot of the Ralph's in Sherman Oaks (Studio City border on Ventura Blvd). And, yes, he is short (made me look tall at 5'8").

Sean Penn was there for his speech at the main stage. I was backstage with my son and we saw him there. We asked for an autograph he said not right now...which was fine. My son was running around and having fun. We look over and Sean starts to light up a cig. and security quickly smacks it out of his mouth and stomps on it.
Penn was shocked...before he could utter a word security say's 'Take a look!' There were a bunch of propane tanks less than 10 yards away. Penn went from a look of WTF to 'Awww shit. I should have seen that' He said, 'Sorry about that!' was a little embarrased then walked over to me and my son and said he'd be happy to sign an autograph.

The best story...to see Sean Penn get bitched slapped:dumbo
