    ..have been fortunate meeting basically all the bands i'm into over the years and have never been awe struck.

    was in a car with pinball author michael shalhoub a few years back on the way to collect some games.

    mike dials a number and puts wayne on the phone and hands it to me.

    for once i WAS in awe, can remember him being so nice and kept thanking him for everything he had done.

    also remember calling him sir - respect!

    I spoke with him on the phone as well, and was not comfortable calling him Wayne. I kept saying Mr. Neyens, and he said "just call me Wayne".
