i fucking HATE how all the good sad-sack singers are all FUCKING ASSHOLES
OK IM IN A SAD MOOD
SO I WANT TO LISTEN TO SOME SAD SHIT RIGHT
but HOW THE FUCK am i supposed to relate to the singers if they're all fucking DICKHEADS!
hmm let's listen to some sad flaming lips NOPE wayne coyne's a cock!
how about some SMASHING PUMPKINS TO RELIVE MY YOUTH - NOPE BC IS A COCK AS WELL
even joy division! ian curtis was a cheating dickhead!
red house painters hahaahahah dont get me started
sparklehorse guy was a dickhead too, richey edwards, michael gira, john lennon, kurt cobain, all fucking dickheads!
nick drake probably was a nice enough guy i guess i'll listen to him
Well, Swans works out pretty well. Even when Gira was full douche mode during his alcoholic stage, he made this afterward.
Do tell about RHP I am curious now.
Townes Van Zandt neglected his friends on his downward spiral and I'm not sure how he treated his wives but I think he was a good person. Just very, very sad
Fred Neil seemed like a bro
is Will Oldham an asshole?
yeah I think he's a pretty decent guy. a little preachy maybe
seeing a couple docs on him many of his friends felt he pushed them away and generally didn't care whenever they wanted to help him.
they say growing up he felt very ashamed to be rich and considering he ended his life in a trailer park I'd say he felt unworthy at times
Because making music about how bad you have it and feeling bad for yourself automatically attracts narcissists, given that they love self-pity
of course, this doesn't mean every single artist that makes sad music is an asshole. Like Nick Drake, poor guy was just consumed by anxiety and severe depression
>i dont listen to music to related to the music, i listen to music as a fashion accessory and a way to relate to the musician and make myself think that maybe one day i can be like this musician
please do yourself a favor and stop listening to music all together. just print out pictures of musicians and stick them on your wall and jerk off to them because thats essentially what you're doing now but it would be more cost effective
I suppose it could be. Not wanting to reveal yourself because you feel others wouldn't "get" you is very egotistical, just not in an overt Kanye West way
It's all speculation but I do think this is how he felt, considering he did tell his friends that he felt he deserved more for his talents
Sufjan is just a goof.
Elliott Smith by all accounts was just a really sweet, quiet guy.
Bill Callahan probably is somewhat of an asshole, but at least he seems to be aware of it in is songwriting, and even still he's so far out of the public eye that there is no real examples of him being an asshole.
If you think pic related is an asshole you have no soul
Bill's entire persona is so fucking hilarious to me because of this. Like most people just seem to say he's this reserved guy with a deep voice, but then somewhere on the internet you'll see some guy bitching about about how Bill fucked his girlfriend or some shit and it always cracks me up. He just gets by due to the fact that he's not famous enough for his assholeishness to be common knowledge.
Good musician either way though,
>stabs a friend
Did not happen
>tries to kill his dad with plane crash
*Has mental breakdown and almost crashes a plane unintentionally
>was an asshole with velvet underground
I don't even know what you mean by this
>plays one song and goes away
>Loves Jesus Christ
This is a positive
A narcissist is someone who admires their own self; their own attributes. Drake seemed to be the opposite (though I do wanna follow up on this "he told his friends he deserved more for his talents" thing I wonder if the more means popularity or just not having straight up major depression 24/7 shit life.) Cuz there's a difference between being in one's own head and being straight up narcissistic. Guy's egotistical in a similar way all those that have depression automatically are in that they stay in their head and entertain thoughts from it (even if it's thoughts of straight self-loathing and believing that they are worthless.)
