Exactly Sting is only rumored to be happily married. And apparently his wife enjoys his tantric abilities also.

I've never heard of terrible things done by Noel Gallagher and he said more than a couple of smart things in life, according to the Special Issue of NME. I respect him, seems a nice person.

Justin Timberlake, too. He understood everything: never into drug scandals, always with beautiful women and out from useless media exposure. Maybe he's an idiot but he's using fame the right way.

I read the rumor in a newspaper. Considering how Sting ended up with Trudie Styler, it's probably true. And cheating with her in the first place would make it hard for me to respect Sting regardless of anything else.

Ok why does a person have to be seemingly perfect to be respected? That to me is almost fake in itself and a red flag. Not saying that their aren't genuinely good people out there but to me its a non factor for respect. I respect people I don't even like sometimes but anyway, mine of course would be Hendrix. To overcome so much in life from his childhood and still be able to leave his mark in historys is nothing short of what legends are made of. A testament of what true dedication, and talent can do when applied fully and passionately.

I used to love Jimi as a person. I respected him even more than Jim Morrison, but then I read a book about him (more than 500 pages) and I came to the conclusion that he isn't as great person as I thought. He's exactly a voodoo child, I mean he never thinks and let's things just happen. He does many stupid things, of course. I don't like this kind of people.

City Sonic: Damian Abraham (****ed Up) at Rotate This - YouTube

Damian Abraham from Fucked Up. For a guy who's in a band that makes such ambitious, arty punk music and is known for getting naked and making his forehead bleed onstage, he seems like a surprisngly nice guy. Fucked Up often get called "pretentious" in punk circles, but those people that say that clearly haven't watched any interviews. I guess the music is just too challenging for them...

That's right, I mean you respect people for certain attributes or skills, not because they ignore their family or love the bottle.

When someone says "respect as people", I do think of if they ignore their family and love the bottle. If OP had said "respect as musicians", I may have listed Jim Morrison or Sting.

Not trying to tell you what you should choose, just explaining my reasons for why I disagree.
