Post The 10 Biggest Classic Rock Douchebags
According to LA Weekly, these ten musicians screwed up rock music big time.

Opinions?

Idiotic list. Yeah, I guess Zappa never made creative music. Totally screwed up music. Wait, what? :stupider:

Springsteen, Zappa, Lennon and to a lesser extent John Fogerty and Bob Dylan were the only musicians I had issues with in their rankings on this list to be honest. Lou Reed should've topped this list in my opinion.

Sounds like tha author doesn't like rock music, and is extreamley bitter that he has to write about it. Seriously idiotc take, and maybe the dude should find something else to do with his life.

I'm surprised Ted Nugent isn't on this list.

The author has some serious envy issues. Some amazingly talented people on that list.

The only one I agree with is Carlos Santana.

He should've broadened the scope a bit & included guys like Fred Durst & Michael Stipe.

Or, just do a modern "Country" music list of artists that are NOT douchebags. Now there's a challenge.

Even though half of his choices are wrong and he sounds like a smug self-opinionated dick in justifying his choices, I'm kinda glad that he went after some of rock's most sacred cows here.

I mean, we all know that Ted Nugent is way deep in douche territory but that's common knowledge and most of the time he revels in it. If anything, I'd be more shocked and repulsed that, for example, despite his stance on world peace, John Lennon was known as a woman-beater.

You are correct. Unless you are also insinuating that Lou Reed's career was a pile of shit, as well, just not as big a one. In which case you are a complete moron and I hate you.

The Velvet Underground & Nico is one of the greatest albums ever fucking recorded. Forever and always. Amen.

I love the list. I can't stand Bob Dylan. And most of what those guys did. I think the writer hits the nail on the head more often than not. Lord was right, they are sacred cows for whatever reason. Fuck em.

You could be onto something with that thought. But everybody here also knows at the same time there is an amount of truth to each criticism.

I just read a biography on Zappa and had to put it down because he really was kind of a dick. That being said, I truly love his music and don't think he deserved #1 on the list...maybe number 8 or 9. Otherwise I feel the list was fairly accurate. :lol:
