 We once posted a very popular biggest assholes in popular music back in 2011, but the Data Lounge aka the daily fix of gay gossip, news and pointless bitchery made a thread of brushes with greatness aka meet a  famous musician, the good, the bad and the buggered. So rock nyc took a peak and if you want it in its original state please feel free to hit the Data Lounge Link. meanwhile, here is a people in rock for dummies. The nicer the person the better the grade! The thread dates from 2011!!

Peter Frampton – Shy – B

Pet Shop Boys – "Droll, ironic amusing" – B+

Destroy All Monsters – Regular guys – B

The White Stripes – Weird but nice – B

Conor Oberst – Nice but kinda weird – B (since we are mostly Conor obsessives here, here is some more info: "He plays the "enigma" card to the max. But. I will say when we first met, he checked me out. Like the way a straight guy checks a girl out. So did this blond guy that was with him. The two of them seemed to be attached at the hip. Even my brother noticed it. When we were alone later he was like "Whoa. Conor totally scoped you out. Also, there was a ton of gack around backstage at his show. Not sure if he was indulging but everyone else certainly was. But the guy isn't a prick at all. Just distant and a bit inscrutable.")

Air – Bland and above it all – C-

Tina Turner – Accessible and genuine – B+

Bon Jovi – Accessible and down to earth – B+

Morrissey – Very sweet! – B (here is the entire quote: "Morrissey is just unbelievably sweet if you catch him in 'the wild'. He talks about the strangest topics, but he's doing the best he can – he is a bit awkward. At after show parties (and he only does a few) he's fantastic. Just approach him gently. ")

Chrissie Hynde -You get what you give  – B – (here is the entire quote: "she's a relative of mine, and you can suck my sack. With her you get exactly what you give. Don't be rude, pushy, or stupid. If you approach her like a human being (and you're not holding a Big Mac) she's very cool with everyone. (She's not going to kiss your ass, but if you want to talk about any decent topic, she's not shy.) If you're a dick, goodbye")
