Rocker John Mellencamp broke protocol by touching Buddhist leader the Dalai Lama when he visited the U.S. last year (07). Tibet's spiritual leader visited Mellencamp's native Indiana in October (07) - and the rocker couldn't resist reaching out to the 72-year-old religious guru. He says, "My two heroes right now are Bob Dylan and the Dalai Lama. He held my hand for five minutes, man. It was weird. You're not supposed to touch him. I thought, 'Well, I kind of feel like his girlfriend.'"
