Random Rock Star Moment #13: Nick Varner

Nick Varner is an 8x World Billiards (Pool) Champion and a 1992 inductee into the Billiards Hall of Fame.

I had absolutely no idea who he was when I met him.. It was at a charity event in 1991 at a pool hall in Emeryville, CA. We only went because it was advertised that Tom Waits was going to attend (he did.. but that's another story). Primus was also there. I guess Varner was a nice guy 'cause he signed his autograph with the inscription I asked him to write..
