I think if you wanna be a rockstar you should play rock music, but that's just me

playing rock is irrelevant to being a rockstar

discuss

>>61952252
No modern rock musician is a rockstar like Kanye is though. He does all the classic rockstar shit.
>>
>>61952272
I agree. Severe drug abuse is a one of the main criterion tho
>>
Josh Homme. Not even a QOTSA circlejerker. It's objectively true.
>>
>>61952292
he would be a popstar not a rockstar, get your shit together
>>
>>61952272
wrong
>>
>>61952190
Marilyn Manson > Kanye West
>>
>>61952313
He's not much of a star though.
It's not like many normies know who he is.

My vote is with Fred Durst desu
He was a legit celebrity in his time, everyone knew that cunt and he was making bank.
>>
>>61952190
Annie Clark, bangs a coke head supermodel and doesn't afraid of anything. Doesn't get more rockstar than that.
>>
Liam Gallagher

I know his shit is edgy but I really wish there was another artist that went out of their way to piss everyone off like he did, while also having a message behind it. That's why I respect Manson so much.

Trump really is this decade's Marilyn Manson
>>
>>61952190

Yeah Manson is the shit no doubt, nobody since has come to his level of outrageous rock music.

He kinda needs to stop though. Always gotta know when to stop

This, so so so much

Rock died because record companies for whatever reason lost interest in it. I suspect that they prefer pop stars because they're easier and quicker to develop, which ensures more immediate profit.
>>
>>61953666
There's a lot of good bands out there in the local scenes, but nobody wants to sign them anymore. It's not like 1990 when Geffen scouts spotted Nirvana in some Seattle-area festival and said "You guys have 'it'. Wanna sign with us?"

I think it's for the best that the tyranny of guitar music we had in the 70s has been broken when for 2-3 generations, only rawk was considered "serious" music. The decision by the record industry to focus on rock from 1965 onward greatly stifled other genres.
>>
>>61952292
But playing a sample of 21st schizoid man isn't being a rock star
>>
>>61953709
And actually, Ke$ha is a would-be punk rocker and a pretty good guitarist, but her record label makes her do pop because they've arbitrary decided that rock is passe.
>>
>>61953762
I fucking love hearing all these excuses for why somebody is a bad musician and how they're actually much better than what their body of work reflects. Literally nobody cares.
>>
>>61953739
^This. Never believe the rock revolution in the 60s was entirely grassroots and that's what the kids wanted to hear. No. Actually the radio stations and record labels, when the British Invasion happened, decided one day they were all going to play guitar music. Since there was no Internet back then and you didn't have much else other than AM stations, kids were forced to listen to rock and like it.

I mean, hell, jazz was in the 1920s-30s-40s what rock would be later, 4/4 pop with bawdy lyrics and a strong beat that kids could party and have sex to.
>>
>>61953666
Well, kind of. Rock groups typically peak in their late 20s (notable exceptions - Black Sabbath and Metallica who did their best work before 25) while a pop star can be huge before the age of 20 eg, Britney. Thus quicker and more immediate profit.
>>
>>61953806
By the time the Beatles broke, jazz was dead as far as teenager culture was concerned. It had devolved into fedora-tier noodling.
>>
>>61952469
Didn't he also challenge a bunch of people to fistfights to which he never showed up?
>>
If you're going by groupie count alone, probably Ollie Sykes
>>
>>61953971
Wasn't that Axl Rose?

Wouldn't surprise me if Durst did the same.
>>
>>61954028

Lmfao he doesn't seem like that kind of guy
>>
Tyler desu
>>
>>61954233

They're male groupies.
>>
>>61952190
Alice Cooper described Manson as the Alice Cooper of this generation. So yeah I vote for the antychrist superstar!

a pretty accurate description

im not a manson fan but u cant deny that
>>

>Rock died because record companies for whatever reason lost interest in it.
Nobody in any business is going to drop something because they themselves lost interest in it. They drop it because the buying public lost interest in it. Why would anyone throw money away?
>>
>>61952272
Most "good" guitar/rock music these days have modest musicians

Hip Hop is the new bravado/rock star
>>
>>61952313
I agree. In the same vein you could say Jesse Hughes.
>>
Rob Zombie, probably.
>>
>>61955628
Alice Cooper is always trying to insert himself everywhere, trying to make himself seem important and influential.
If Manson was ripping anyone off it was Bowie.
>>
>>61955740
>If Manson was ripping anyone off it was Bowie.

...and Bowie ripped off Alice Cooper.It's the Circle of Life, Simba.
Bowie was chomping granola and singing Folk before The Coop came along. Truth hurts.
>>
>>61955751
And Coop ripped off Arthur Brown who ripped off Screaming Jay Hawkins, it's not the point.
Most of Marilyn's music and shtick is more overtly lifted from Bowie than Cooper.
>>
>>61955845
Manson is Cooper's and Bowie's lovechild.
>>
>>61955661
lol
>>
>>61955740
Feel like Manson was heavily influenced by Trent reznor
>>
>>61952190

josh homme for sure
>>
No mention of James Murphy? Closest I can think of besides Josh Homme
