Default Kind/Mean Musicians

This is a reoccurring thought that won't leave me alone. Some of you might have have wondered about this, so why not start a discussion on it?

So, which musician(s) would be nice to you and which musician(s) wouldn't?

Nice/Friendly: Ringo Starr, John Cage, John Paul Jones, Mo Tucker, Jack White

Mean/Rude: Biggie Smalls, Lou Reed, Jimmy Page, Kanye West, Karlheinz Stockhausen

What about you guys?

Most musicians, I'd probably make a point to be mean, and rude first. I'm not sure, otherwise. Albeit, I agree John Cage would probably be nice but I don't imagine that guy having a mean bone in his body.

not really. Biggie seemed like a pretty chill guy around the right people.

I bet Maynard James Keenan would be in everyone's mean category. That guy is a complete wanker. I mean, he's a good singer, and a creative guy. I just think he's a pretensions annoying self indulgent ****sucker.

Well I know Joe Strummer's dead but I think he would have been the nicest guy to meet.

I'm kind of surprised with Win Butler being put in the mean category. He seems like he would be a really nice guy to me.

I agree with you on Thom Yorke. I've watched some interviews with him and he can be pretty rude sometimes. Although, it's usually because the interviewer is asking stupid questions or questions he's been asked a million times. If he's being asked original questions specficially about his music rather than personal life, he seems a lot nicer.

Nice: Lady Gaga (she's weird but probably pretty nice to everybody atleast at first), Sam Beam (Iron & Wine), Ed Droste (i imagine him being pretty chill), Sierra Casady (of CocoRosie, watch her in one of the music videos she don't have a mean bone in her body)

Rude: Damon albarn (Blur/Gorillaz) (just gives off that vibe), Patrick & Eugene (the percussionist guy is actually very rude and snobby), Bianca Casady (The non-opera voice from CocoRosie, i'm not sure why but i think at first she's probably mean to everybody but once you get to know her she's probably nice)

I've always thought that every famous musician will have at least a bit of assholiness about them, no matter what their personality may seem like.

Oh... I forgot to mention him. He really does seem like a nice guy to meet (not to mention he's probably very strange which makes it even better).
