Apparently last night Roger Daltrey, lead singer of The Who for those who don't know, showed up as a surprise lecturer at the Academy of Contemporary Music @ UCO last night in Bricktown. The surprise appearance in Bricktown last night is now on The Who's website and has made its splash throughout the blogosphere.

I like best how Steve Lackmeyer talks about the people-spotting bonanza that has swept OKC recently.
"There was a time when celebrity spotting in Oklahoma City meant seeing Barry Switzer enjoying bbq at a local restaurant. Maybe you saw Bob Hope during one of his stops at the Skirvin. But lately with the addition of the NBA and world class concerts at Ford Center, we’re starting to adapt to the chance of seeing Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas eating at Mickey Mantle Steakhouse, seeing Kobe Bryant or Shaq at Hooters, or seeing Eva Longoria and Tony Parker enjoying a meal at Trattoria Il Centro."
Of course he forgot to mention the lead actor of NCIS doing a baseball benefit at The Brick, Jessica Alba "vandalizing" downtown with save-the-shark posters, and more. It's definitely been impressive to see how famous people are beginning to frequent OKC. Not long ago you would have never seen these guys even considering coming to OKC. Now if we can just get presidential candidates to realize we exist...
