See its like this... Lets say you thought i was awesome but you had never actually met me in person. And lets say you were a die hard fan of mine. Now lets say you finally after all these years of trying were going to get to meet me and you got to. You soon realized that the best moment to you at the time was shot down by someone you had idolized for so long. I have heard the lead singer of this band is not a nice person. That to me says alot. I understand that they get pestered alot but its the fate that they have chosen. So mainstream musicains wether they like it or not are puppets of the music industry and everything that surrounds it. This means that they (since we are the ones that make them money) should at least aknowlege there fans somewhat. My reasoning is as stands why would you support an a#$h%^&? makes no sense to me. If its good than its good?? Id rather let you say that... There are a bunch of good things that i dont like... aka tim tebow.... case and point

So if Osama bin laden came out with a hot new hit single you would listen and because it was good?? Can you say tool??

Or do you simply think that good is always good cause if so i think that they have a pill for that.

I think Charles Manson was a great songwriter.

So you're saying you don't know how to seperate song from musician? Its like saying someone who is good at brick laying all of a sudden becomes a bad brick layer once he acts like a douche.

But being a jerk doesn't make you bad at your trade. For instance I think Mike Portnoy is a twat from personal experience. However, I still think LTE's 2 albums are fantastic, and I wouldn't mind shelling out money to see Dream Theater. His behavior has no effect on his work, nor on his talent.

I get what's being said about someone being a jerk not affecting their talent / ability, even the quality of their work...


But we as human beings tend to have this sticky little things called emotional attachments and investments - sometimes we irrationally form these attachments with idols and assign characteristics to them we experience through their art (or their music, in this case)

... when we find out that some of these perceived characteristics aren't true, we tend to be repulsed by everything about them, in a reaction commonly felt as betrayal, which repulses us against everything that person does, even their music, regardless of its inherent quality...
