This is always a point of contention with me. I always marvel at how some people can be so human while at the top of the world, while other’s let it get t their head. Sting, for example always seems like the kind of guy who you could talk to over the back fence, assuming you live next door to a twelth century castle.
But my asshole list includes:
Dave Navarro-Grand High asshole. seems to think he’s a self styled god of sex. Really just a pretty good guitarist who happens to have been in a few major groups. I think there are kids in my town who can play better, just haven’t had the luck
John Entwistle-Has been told he’s good a few to many times, wrote songs in keys he knew Daltry couldn’t sing in so he could have the spotlight, Blah!
Peter Townsend-has been told he’s a majorly influential guitarist a few to many times(Johnny Ramone was influential too) also spent too much time in front of big amplifiers, messed up more than his hearing
Yngwie Malmsteen- Don’t even get me started

Sorry, couldn’t resist with that quote… [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
I know what you mean though… That’s what I like about Watt, he’s just a guy. Keeps himself on the same level as his fans. Very cool.
In fact, I give him my nomination…
MIKE WATT FOR PRESIDENT 2004!!! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]October 27, 2001 at 6:26 pm #66080
Axl Rose- but you already knew that…
James Hetfield- alledgedly beats up bandmates
Courtney Love-for keeping box set held up
Lou Barlow- trying to sue J for $$ when he hit it big
And the list goes on…
those guys in Korn
nu metal/rap bands
The worlds needs more people like Mike Watt if you ask me.October 27, 2001 at 11:17 pm #66081
Courtney Love – Some call her Cuntney, wonder why…. [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img]
I feel no need to explain, I am sure everyone understand why she’s on my list [img]images/smiles/icon_wink.gif[/img]October 28, 2001 at 12:30 am #66082
Apparently I’m rubbing off on everyone else – Corgan wasn’t listed.October 30, 2001 at 10:21 am #66084
just picked up the thread, Jaron.

This is from an e-mail I’ve got today from Shawn Barton from Hazeldine (a great band, by the way) showing the two sides of Ryan Adams:
So here are a couple of Ryan stories (we did two tours with Whiskeytown, and I’ve got a bunch, but these will do):
the Good Ryan:
-When Whiskeytown were making their Strangers Almanac cd, he would call me at three in the morning to play me songs over the phone. My boyfriend was not impressed.
-One night in St. Louis, on tour, Ryan took me and Tonya to a riverboat casino (the Casino Queen, for you wilco fans). He even gave us 50 bucks each to gamble with, as we were completely broke and
he had an Outpost Records credit card.
The Evil Ryan:
-On tour in Chicago…we walked in while Wtown were soundchecking, and Ryan says loudly into the mic, "Who gives a fuck if hazeldine doesn’t get to soundcheck–this is OUR show". We all stopped and stared at him, and he looked at us, and it was WAR!! Jeffrey and Ryan almost got into a fistfight that night, and I’m sure Jeff would have kicked Ry’s ass up and down. My boyfriend (the one that was pissed with the phone calls) flew out for that show and climbed onto the Whiskeytown bus after the show to challenge him. an ugly, ugly night.
But hurt feelings have all healed now, and when I see him it’s always good. Sure, he’s a brat onstage, but aren’t most terrifically talented people a little difficult to deal with? I wish him well.

Michael Jackson scares the crap out of me every time I see him. Just saw a bit of some ghost deal he did on much music [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_confused.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]

Hey Allison, the whole Michael Jackson deal has always brought me concern… [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]
I mean, how’d that lune ever get so famous?!? His music has never been that great, but I guess that’s subject to my opinion…
Now it seems like he’s mutated into an entirely different person. That cannot be the same guy who sang all the pop songs back in the 80’s.
Best I can tell, its some kinda of mechinized jacko-bot… or even worst, an evil zombie lord!!! [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]

I think the only robots out there are Mary Kate and Ashley.November 1, 2001 at 8:00 pm #66089
Cool sig, thats one of my concerns with Michael Jackson [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]
But whats up with that monkey he used to hang out with [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_razz.gif[/img] Kinda makes me believe what Mattman said about the weird zombie bit [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img]

I have to say that the BIG problem with Michael Jackson is HIS FANS!!
You have to admit that he is a victem of his success as a child star. The point about some people not being able to handle fame is true, but this guy Michael really could not have backed out of becomeing his F@#$& up self.
Now hopefully his fans will develope the sense to keep their children away from him!!
And he better just stay away from those plastic surgeons!!! First he tried to look like a black Michael York. Then he tried to look like HIS SISTER!! Who knows who he will try to look like next. Some one should go into the Medical schools where they teach plastic surgeons and warn the students of the ethical black hole epitomized by Michael Jackson.
But as pathetic as he is is fans are the real A$$ HOLES!!November 1, 2001 at 9:39 pm #66091
1. The ethics behind 90% of plasitic surgery is questionable.
2. What is it that makes Jackson fans assholes?November 1, 2001 at 9:51 pm #66092
I just realized that some of my favorite musicians are ass holes. That is why I like thier style. All the punks were ass holes. It was part of being a punk. The trick was to see how much of an ass hole you could be with out being uncool.
My favorit punk ass hole was Jean Jaque Burnel of the Stranglers. He was a Karate expert and would go into the audiece and beat people up. WHAT AN ASSHOLE!! …good bass player and singer though. Just keep that asshole away from your sister!!!
Then there is Keith Moon… About the most pompus A$$ HOLE you will ever hear of. If you ever see his solo album you will know what I mean. It’s called "Two Sides of the Moon." You can guess what’s on the cover. Exactly what an A$$ HOLE going by the name of Moon would put on his album cover! It’s an ugly thing which I almost bid on at eBay. But then the picture loaded!! I decided to STAY AWAY from that A$$ HOLES’ solo record!!! …great drummer though…..
…maybe that isn’t what you ment by an ass hole…. ..I always thought John Entwistle was pretty cool….
Uncool A$$ HOLES (I.M. not so H.O.)
Rod Stewart (Except when playing with Jeff Beck)
Jonney "Rotten" Lyden
Sun Ra (an obscure, racist, black, avant-gard jazz ass hole.)
