ITT: Great musicians that seem like horrible people to be around
>>
Don't much care for their music outside of F#A# Infinity, but I'd hang out with them.

fat mike was a great musician, but he seems like real negative guy

>>51384888
GY!BE are good at what they do, but their music doesn't really require a great musician, just patience.
>>51385780
Wayne can barely play guitar. He's had some good ideas (Soft Bulletin, Zaireeka, Embryonic), but as far as raw musicianship goes he's a total hack.
>>
"I make cracks about [my audience] at every show. How can I not? I can't count the amount of shows that the entire front row consists of lonely looking middle-aged dudes and maybe a woman who looks like one! Fucking depressing! I'm like 'don't any of you have girlfriends?' They sit there holding their phone likes its their only card in life. I mean, I'm glad they pay the ticket, but it's a very uninspiring front row to look at, honestly."

Genesis wouldn't exactly be horrible, but s/he'd be very intense and pronouns would be difficult.

Same with Boyd Rice, though David Tibet would be pleasant to hang with.

Genesis is a horrible musician. I bet hanging out with him would be an interesting experience and he would probably have a ton of interesting stories to tell, but will probably smell weird.

Boyd Rice seems like a cool dude and would gladly drink a beer with him

I wanted to disagree with you, but while the groups s/he was a part of were fantastic, musically Genesis wasn't the reason they were, beyond leading them.

Artist par excellence though.

Morrissey is not a horrible person, but I think that him being so whiny would be a bit annoying.

>>51385958
mark did nothing wrong

Alex Chilton seemed like a total stuckup prick.

Van Morrison is apparently very dickish.

Frank Zappa too.
>>
>>
>>51385958
mark is a fuckin hero
>>
>>51386760
It seems like you could have a good time shooting the shit with Zappa. but if you rubbed him the wrong way, then you'd be in Hell.

>>51386686
Young Morrissey (around the smiths s/t) seems like he would be a /mu/tant. Old Morrissey is a twat
>>
>>51386760
>Frank Zappa too.
I disagree with that, I don't think he would be a dick. But I love his music, so maybe I'm biased by that.
>>
>>51385958
Birds of a feather flock together.

All of them.

You sorta need to be a douchebag to be confident enough to put your music out to be criticized.

When he was lucid he was a great person to be around, before his "friends" locked him into cupboards while he was tripping.

But yes the Syd that burned paintings in the front lawn would be difficult to hang with.
>>
Greg Ginn
>>
>>51386760
Zappa would probably be 50/50.

He'd be a good friend but he might not be always great to hang out with, especially if you disagreed with him.

But Frank'd always bust you out of jail when you need it.
>>
>>51386852
I get the feeling he thinks everyone around him is an idiot. I think he has a pretty big contempt for a lot of people.
>>
Buzz Osbourne if you had anyway different opinions to him
>>
>>51386283
Genesis is actually very polite and friendly. He/she is pretty open about their gender and will even hold your hand with explaining it to you because he knows it's kinda complicated.
>>
>>51386929
>I get the feeling he thinks everyone around him is an idiot.
>I think he has a pretty big contempt for a lot of people.
So you're saying he'd fit right in with us.
>>
>>51385958
To be honest I appreciate this sort of honesty more than when artists go "our fans are great! we love everyone!".
If you're making music and trying to communicate something it's understandable that you'd want it not to fall on deaf ears.
>>
>>51386941
No he would probably hate /mu/ and write a song making fun of it
>>
>>51386939
Doesn't make s/her any less intense.

I think s/he's a doll, but I don't know what we'd talk about. S/he's a bit old for her old antics but whatever we'd be doing would likely be intense.
>>
>>51386805
>Old Morrissey is a twat

Agreed.
>>
Peter Murphy from Bauhaus is definitely a total ass.

John Fogerty is a self-absorbed egotistical prick.
>>
>>51386941
Actually yeah. But then I wouldn't want to be around most of you people IRL either, unless you're just being ironic with the memeposting.
>>
Thurston Moore
>>
>>51385958
maybe he shouldn't make shitty music that appeals to this type then
>>
>>51387054
Other than the mistress thing, he doesn't seem too bad
>>
>>51386176
>>51386236
Communists evolved into the a political party that could never run a country: libertarianism.

Anarchists and extremely successful capitalists also have made the jump
>>
>>51387054
Thurston seems to be the coolest guy on earth.
>>
>>51387096
commies suck, but hyper-capitalists are even worse
>>
Bod Dylan seems like a bit of prick
>>
At first I was gonna post Tyler the Creator but after I saw the Wolf DVD thing yesterday, he seems like a cool dude.
>>
>>51387134
I was thinking the same. His music is great, but I think we would be a total douche.
>>
>>51387131
They both went to libertarianism, just different sides of the same coin, liberal and conservative
>>
>>51386983
Have you seen that hour long interview with him/her about the early days of Throbbing Gristle? He/she isn't intense at all, man. In fact, I bet you'd have him/her all pally as long as you got them a cup of tea and some biscuits.
>>
>>51387136
Yeah, Tyler's just a young guy trying to have fun at the end of the day. He's also ultra polite to people, albeit a little cocky and playful but he doesn't mean anything by it. Definitely a guy I would eat cookies and ice cream with while reading comics, watching cartoons in his treehouse.
>>
>>51387134
He seems like a generally normal guy reacting to an obsessive following who treats him like he's fucking jesus or something. So he takes some opportunities to fuck with them.

Nowadays though I think he's given in to his god hype.

I wouldn't mind hanging around even with the biggest assholes (Miles, Fela, Beefheart, Lennon, Lou Reed etc). Maybe not longterm yeah.

He's ugly as sin by any metric. Get your eyes checked.

>>
>>51387356
I knew Fela liked to fuck with authority but he didn't seem like much of an asshole.

Also as Miles Davis got older, he knew he was a prick and kinda just accepted it. He could certainly tell you he did plenty of wrongs in his life. I think that's at least a bit better than just being an outright twonk.

Mingus

>>51387431
i think i read somewhere that he used to not pay his band and treat them like shit, and was a bit of a megalomaniac. Also he was sexist. Having said that I would probably be the same if i was as talented.

I actually only bother with Genesis because I respect the intention; I didn't call s/her a "she", because Genesis doesn't believe s/he is a woman. The fact Genesis and Lady Jaye decided to become the same person is a hauntingly romantic thing to me, especially more beautiful now that Genesis effectively allows his wife to live through s/her.
>>
>>51387608
Miles Davis wasn't racist, though. He was confrontational with ignorant whites at the time, but you would be too if you were a young black man being bothered by racism everywhere you went by white people too ignorant to learn anything about black culture unless if it was cool for them.
>>
>>51387437
Good choice. I heard he was angry at everything, even if a gig went well, he was pissed. I wanna read more about that honestly, I kinda want to know what made that guy tick.
>>
>>51387977
>>51387977
Genesis P-Orridge is pretty far from SJW transgender bullshit, though. It's like two people have become one and share each others bodies. It's pretty far out there, man, read up on it.
