|Bruce Campbell "If
Chins Could Kill" signing.
Bruce Campbell will be signing his new book on Long Island? Well,
of course as soon as we heard this, my friend Matt and I had to
be there to meet "the man." We eagerly awaited in our
seats of the Huntington book store for Bruce to take the podium.
He was running a bit late, coming from another apperance in Manhattan.
But it was well worth the wait. My buddy Matt managed to ask the
burning second question in all our minds. "Bruce... I don't
know how many times I've seen 'The Quick And The Dead.' Where exactly
are you in that movie?" The audience snickers and Bruce shoots
a dirty look as he replies "What are you trying to say, man?
That I'm NOT in the movie?" And so it began. His 45 minute
panel can be only be described as 45 minutes worth of stand up comedy.
I've never laughed harder at a convention or in-store apperance
then I did for Bruce's witty stories about the real behind-the-scenes
deal in making movies and his sarcastic replies to almost every
question. "Will there be an Evil Dead 4!?" an eager fan
calls out. "Well, gee... I don't know. I've never been asked
THAT before. Listen folks. I don't know. No one in Hollywood is
saying... 'Boy we need another one of those!'" Behind
the sarcasm though was just a regular guy who seemed to get a kick
out of people wanting his autograph. In other words, Bruce is a
really humble guy. He gladly signed books following the Q &
A and traded jabs with fans, including yours truly. I asked the
dude to sign my book to Rob G. Love because... well I though it'd
be funny and that chicks would be impressed. Of course, Bruce poked
fun at me right away for this, but did it anyways. Anytime this
man appears somewhere, just go! You won't regret meeting him. -robg.
"Do I own a copy of the Necronamicon?
"There are no small parts. Only
bad offers!" Bruce explains.
"No, sir. I am not in 'The
Quick & The Dead.' I was never in the movie.
I don't WANT to be in the stupid movie! But I will accept the residual
"If I didn't try to carve out
Kurt Russell's eye... he wouldn't have tried to escape... from LA. Now,
"Rob G. Love, huh? Any relation
to Buddy Love?"
"Yea, they're will be more 'Jack
Of All Trades' ... when monkeys come flying right outta my butt!"
All joking aside, Robg. & Bruce meet & have a 'moment'!
