I met Charlie back in 2008. Man was a legit class act. I used to sit up and watch ALL of his True Hollywood stories.
I watched his stories so much, I adapted to his way of story telling. When Charlie told a story, you'd listen. What was so unique about Charlie's stories was he lived his life first THEN had a story to tell. It didn't click with me until recently that's all it took and Charlie was very impactful in that regard.
I wanted to interview him for my YouTube channel but never had a chance to. He encouraged me to keep going cause that was one of MANY times where I was going to give up.
Wish I had a chance to share some of my personal stories with him when I saw him again.
