I met my one idol: Ian McCulloch, singer of Echo & The Bunnymen. The only person I respect that much that I'd rate him an idol. I was very pleasantly surprised how down-to-earth he was, very friendly man. Bit of a bizarre sense of humor, but still very pleasant person.
I also met: Will Sergeant (Echo & The Bunnymen), Heather Nova, and very brief encounters with the entire band Placebo.
On my 'wish list': Steven Patrick Morrissey.

My wife and I were chilling out on Ilha Grande (lovely island about 3 hours south of Rio) at the start of 2005 Carnavale when I spotted actor Colin Farrell accompanied by a male and female Brazilian minder in a waterfront pub.
Told the missus but she wouldn't believe me, so we walked up to the bar, plonked ourselves either side of him and my wife turned and asked 'Are you Colin Farrell'?
He cracked this massive smile at her and said in a soft Irish brogue 'No I'm not'.
Her first movie star!!!
