Quoted from PhilGreg:

Ok sorry for being a n00b, but who's that guy? (I'm guessing it's not Gary Stern that's the main subject of the pics, right?)

EDIT: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Mitchell_(video_game_player)

Sorry to make a small hijack on the thread, but I am planning on putting
a picture "wall mural" on my gameroom to cover the whole wall.
The picture size would be 2,7 m x 2,17 m (106 inches x 85 inches)

Therefore if anyone could help and provide me with hires pictures of the following, that would be really nice:

Laurel & Hardy (that would be the best):

Superman:

Any Honeymooners fans here? I found 3 Honeymooners episodes which feature a pinball machine. The first is "Two Men On A Horse" from 5/29/1954. Ralph gambles with a fellow in a diner and dances around while playing a flipperless 1948 Exhibit Supply "New Contact" machine.

http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=3435

Next was the "Finders Keepers" episode from 12/8/1956. Both Ralph and Ed play a 1950 Exhibit Supply "Judy" machine in a candy shop to try and win a box of candy. Even though this machine has flippers, they both dance around during play without flipping.

http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=3186

A later color episode from The Jackie Gleason Show on 10/7/1967 was "Two For The Money" (a remake of the 1954 "Two Men On A Horse" sketch). Here Ralph plays a 1964 Midway "Rodeo" still dancing away without flipping while the chimes ring.

I couldn't get him to play my Bad Cats but he did sign the glass for me:

Funny part was, I bought the Bad Cats a week before he came because I didn't currently have any Python games in the house.

Sure miss him!

I think these are the data that many of us would like to know.

Quoted from gouveia:

Mark Tremonti's personal collection. This was taken from Guitar World magazine.

Quoted from Minneapolispin:

Brian Setzer from the Brian Setzer Orchestra and the Stray Cats has quite a collection at his home.
Here's a link to the story about the condo he's selling: http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/homegarden/235781301.html

To know what famous artist, musician or actor, likes pinball and they may have a personal collection of pinballs at home. Someone else knows? of course I think that Kiss, Mick Jagger, metallica , Guns and Roses, Sylvester Stallone , Michael Jordan , they have more than one !!
Maybe it's top secret and few people knows....., but I know there are many pinsiders who know famous people !!
It is simply curiosity. We will wait....

I can't find it in this thread or anywhere, but I remember seeing a pic on Pinside of James Hetfield in front of a Pinbot from back in the day, I think standing next to the Pinsider who posted it.

Anyone know what I'm talking about? I was playing my Pinbot with a friend who is a Metallica fan. I wanted to show him the pic I had remembered but couldn't find it!
