Andy Warhol and Dennis Miller.<br>Keep in mind I'm claiming Pittsbugh as my home town since it's only 20 mins. away. I couldn't possibly come up with anyone from my home town of Bladder, Pa.

Many many well known germen stars/historic persons and/or celibrities live here in Cologne/Germany, where I am seated. Since this is a major media city in Germeny. But sure I wouold have to do some research about who would also be known by you guys out there.<br><br>Well, I was born in Trier - in the same City as KARL MARX. He died in London though and here's folks fro, Lonmdon I think....

I grew up in the desert towns that FZ came of age. Lancaster, Riverside, Cucamonga.<br>Then the "rents" relocated to the East Coast. Eventually orbitng Springfield, MA... Home of Dr. Suess (yea!), Taj Mahal (eh) and Tony MacAlpine. I used to play with bass player from Tony's first band. That was fun.

Sadly I did not, but a funny story...<br><br>When my family did a house exchange in the south of France around 1988, it was the number 1 soap opera on there. The family we traded with knew everything about it and could not believe that we didn't know it.<br><br>Before they left for our house, it was on t.v. and they excitedly showed us part of the episode. The scenes that we being shown were definitely not in SB...look more like somewhere in Los Angeles. Those wacky Frenchies!;D
