I'm gonna a write me a letter...

Inspired by this story of a young and unknown David Bowie writing a personal letter to a fan.

Have you ever written a letter to a famous person and gotten a response?

Thank you so much for posting this, as a long time fan of Bowie I found it interesting.

I e-mailed Dave Pegg (the bassist of Fairport Convention) and asked if I could sit in as a guest bassist for one tune at the band's 2002 Hollywood CA gig. He wrote back and said to mail a cassette of me playing along with my tune of choice (Portmeirion) to Ric Sanders, the violin player who composed it. I passed this audition and got to jam with my favorite band, all thanks to a polite letter.
