    I personally rented a space to Lionel Richey for his tour bus. He wanted to park it so that his soon to be ex-wife could not find it. He was a really cool, humble guy and was very nice to our assistant manager and maintenance guy. He always paid on time and move out after a year. I told him that I loved his video of the song, "Dancing on the Ceiling" and he just beamed!

    The closest we have gotten is the cousin of our owner -- Richard Hatch of BattleStar Galatica fame.

    I've met him a few times - nice guy.

    The only "famous" people we've had are San Jose Shark hockey players and a few SF 49ers over the years. Only famous if you follow sports and keep up with who's on first.

    Crystle, care to share which emcee rented a space from you, or in the spirit of customer privacy protection, are you withholding that information?

    Can we at least have a hint?

    Well, according to a former assistant manager, we had a senator come in one day when I was off, but he didn't rent.

    I would have probably given him 90% off just so I could say, "Yeah, I've got a Senator in one of my units!" to my other fellow managers!
