    I was just thinking that I have seen a lot of pictures of famous people playing pinball. I'm not sure if it has fully caught on with the "jet set crowd," but I have heard of many stars who are avid pinball players.

    Slash, Alice cooper, Jason Sudeikis, and Owen Wilson.

    What other famous people are pinheads? Any pics?

    I was asking if there are more famous people that are known pinball lovers/collectors, and only secondly if there are pictures to prove it.

    I was NOT asking for just a bunch of pics as could be found in another thread.

    Thanks anyway

    I have heard that. I think he supposedly had a whole arcade (which would make sense for him). Im not sure that i have ever seen a pic of any of it, however.
