And a very early arrival of Harry Potter...

Literary fans may be interested to discover that "H. Potter" arrived in New Orleans on the Schooner Commerce on Feb. 5, 1845. Apparently there was an attempt to disguise this important arrival. He is listed as a Seaman for occupation with United States given as his nationality. But we all know he is a wizard from England...

Schooner Commerce - Grand Cayman to New Orleans - Arrived Feb. 5, 1845



And proof that Catherine Zeta Jones was a spinster in a former life...

Ship Lady Gallatin Passenger List - Liverpool to New York, 21 June 1820

This is all meant in the spirit of fun and parody and not to be taken seriously.

"Proof That Rock Stars Are Vampires" is an ongoing project. More vampiric rock stars will be added when they are found. And we think there are a lot of them.
