no need mentioning examples such as Axl Rose, everybody already hates them.

i guess Ill start.

I think Brian May, Tom Morello, Paul Gilbert, and Roger Waters would be fairly down to earth. (i know these artists are from really random genres)

conversely, I think Jim Morrisson, Eddie Vedder, and (ironically) Thom Yorke, would be fairly pompous twats.

yeah so, what do you think?
#2
Dave Mustaine.

Funny story about one of my friends who met him at a meet and greet.
#3
I think the guys from rise against and bad religion would be really cool.

As much as I like tool, something tells me Maynard is an ass in real life. Idk but he just seems
so particular about everything, although the rest of the band seems cool.
#4
Steve Morse is a pretty cool guy and so is Victor Wooten.

EDIT: Forgot to mention Alex Webster is the coolest dude on the planet.

Do you think he is or isn't a dink?

Satriani is super cool. He has fun on and off stage, but isn't overly wild

You think? Paul Gilbert is one of the nicest people alive. He'll go down in the Hall Of Fame Of Life.

Agreed. Maynard seems like one of those guys who would be a know-it-all. He may be cultured, but he doesn't have to treat everyone like they aren't equal to him

Do tell.

I think Marilyn Manson is a down to earth guy (yes the singer in the band). Even though he seems abit odd, I think he's pretty chill.

How are they possibly random? Its what majority of UG listens to. It is to expected in this kind of thread. Please edit your original post to say "(completely anticipated musicians that have a perfectly coincidental connection to each other)."

Only then will I stop complaining.

Do tell.

He wanted to get something signed by Mustaine but couldn't find anything Megadeth related so he just grabbed a magazine with Usher on the cover. While waiting in line Dave would just mindlessly sign whatever people wanted him to and get to the next person but once he saw the magazine he just stared at my friend with a blank face for a minute straight before saying "What the f*** is wrong with you? You expect me to sign this piece of shit?" My friend says "Yeah, I've got nothing else" and Dave says "Evidently not" after another minute of the blank stare. He wouldn't sign it, I wouldn't either but I wouldn't be a dick about it.

i heard mustaine was actully a nice guy but if i were him i would of ripped out another page from the magazine and signed that

i feel like edge from u2 would be a cool guy.. also jack johnson, john mayer, bruce springsteen, and warren zevon seem nice.. and of course i can imagine darius rucker from hootie being one of the nicest musicians around.

on the other hand i feel like both tom delonge and kanye always strike me as complete f**kwads.

i also feel like despite being "the prince of darkness" ozzy would have a softer side to him.

wow... rereading this post i feel like it covers just about every genre of music...

From experience Slash, Eric Johnson, Billy Gibbons, Oz Noy, Roscoe Beck, the guys from Mastadon and Duff McKagan are pretty cool.

Speculation wise, I'd figure Robben Ford, John Petrucci, Allan Holdsworth BB King, Joe Bonamassa, Frank Zappa and Scott Henderson would all be pretty cool.

Also involving no formal knowledge, I think Kurt Cobain, Carlos Santana, EVH, DLR and Yngwie would be total dicks. I've heard some bad stories involving Steve Vai as well but I've also heard good ones so I don't know about him.

Move Tomrello into Cat 2 and I completely agree.

Cool guys...

Lou Reed,
Alice Cooper(somebody was gonna say it),
Meatloaf,
Brad Paisley,
Mike Mcready,
Jerry Cantrell,
Kim Thayll,
Glenn Danzig

Twats,
Chris Cornell,
Zack Wylde(but probably biased by the whole ATHF episode)
John Lennon,
Steven Tyler,
The Eagles.


Confirmed reports are:

Everclear are complete dicks.

Steven Tyler is a really cool nice guy, and a Foodie, but he seems like a dick which is why he's on my list.

Johnny Hickman from Cracker is appareently a reallly nice guy.

Roger Clyne from the Refreshments is a really cool dude.

Def Lepard are some really really nice guys I know for a Fact!!! I met them after an hour and a half Meet and Greet, They actually came up to me as I was slowly picking out "When the Saints go Marching In" on a used Washburn acoustic behind the Techs counter. One of the Guitarists and the bassist and I talked music for about 5 minutes. Then later that night at the show they actually noodled "Saints" while the roadies were fixing a problem during the set. Not a big fan of the Music but a big fan of the Band.

After reading Cobain's bio it seems he would either be really nice or a dick... depended on the day/high/withdrawls/self loathing it seems. Los Lobos are pretty cool guys, and was Eric Johnson as awesome in real life as I think he is.
#29
I feel like if I tried talking to Slash, he'd forget what I said after a couple seconds and just smirk.

I'd Ozzy would be a dick, but apparently, he isn't.

He's quiet. A bunch of guys I know are friends with him and they say he's just like he was when I met him.

Tool's music just drips of self-importance.

I always imagine ska bands as being really nice guys. It just doesn't seem possible for someone who makes such upbeat music to be a douche.

Cool guys: Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (in his interviews, he matches my personality, when probed about something he likes, he talks more, otherwise he's quiet.) Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Justin Pierre.

Dicks: Jack White, Zack De La Rocha

People that could go either way: Conor Oberst (I don't know what he would be like), Chuck Ragan.

I met the guitarist from Heaven Shall Burn, Alexander Dietz, in Perth this year when they opened for Trivium. He didn't really say much, but i'm not sure how good his english is. We asked for photos and he said yes, but he just seemed like he was in a real hurry to get away from us. I don't know, i always figured if you where in a band travelling to different countries you would be happy when people recognise you on the street >.>
