Well, considering that I'm in the Hollywood California area, I'd say I have a lot of famous people living close to me

John Barnes' (footballer) children were in my school,
Patricia Routledge (sp?) from Kepping Up Appearances went to my school (not at the same time as me, obviously! )
Paul O'Grady (aka Lilly Savage) went to the Catholic school next to mine! (again, before my time! )
My Dad went to the same college as John Lennon and Paul McCartney (different years, but there at the same time!)
Freddie Starr used to live in Birkenhead.
Wilfred Owen was from Birkenhead, Elvis Costello apparently was too!
(found a cool website! )
That's all I can think of for there!
Manchester probably has loads!
Oasis (Noel and Liam Galagher)
hmmm, my mind's gone blank now, i'll think of some more later!

Esp. Gerry Marsden being from your village and your dad going to college with John Lennon and Paul McCartney.
And Manchester has LOADS of talent... Besides Oasis, The Stone Roses (my fave band of all time) are from there.
