I am writing about an encounter I had with Brett. I am not one to be starstruck, etc. but I recognized Brett when he sat next to me at a bar, oops, a restaurant, in Salt Lake City while on location for his new Disney movie.
He looked familiar (The Replacements) and we struck up a conversation about the golf tournament on the t.v. at the bar. I am writing this because I travel a lot for work and I don’t meet many people that come across as being really quality human beings and real people. It took Brett a while to even mention what he did. Once he did I picked his brain a bit and could tell right away how passionate he was about his craft and his family.
I mentioned that I saw The Sharks in San Francisco earlier last year and Brett told me of his friendship and time in college with Dennis Quaid. I believe he was headed to Montana to meet his family the following week at Dennis’ ranch.
The night sticks in my memory because the band WAR was in concert in the upstairs bar. I just wanted to chime in on the website to let everyone know that it is rare when you meet someone (especially an artist) that is as humble, down to earth and family oriented as Brett. He is a genuine human being and a humble artist…a sellout he will never be.
