Default Celebrity Owners?

Anyone know what celebrities own Corvettes? Obviously Leno does and I think I heard Matt Hardy owns one. Kinison did. Who are some other famous corvette owners?

Kenny Perry, the pro golfer, owns a yellow Z06. He picked his up at the museum the same day I took delivery of my vert last December. That was pretty cool meeting him.

In the mid 80's Ted Nugent lived near Jackson MI, near me. Every once in a while you'd see a top down vette tooling around with two long manes of hair blowing in the breeze. You'd swear it was two babes, then at a light you'd notice one was a dude - Ted himself, always grinning ear to ear.

The player on the Carolina Hurricanes with the redhead afro owns a C6, ESPN interviewed him arriving to the rink during the stanley cup finals. Don't remember his name.
