The Worst Tempered Men In Rock N Roll (UK Edition)

According to Gigwise these are the ten grumpiest men in rock and roll UK division (mostly, though I doubt you can perform one of these types of lists without including Lou Reed) and what do they all have in common? More money than brains? A disproportionate sense of self worth? All of the above???? The grade is on nastiness, the nastier the guy, the higher the grade.

1. Liam Gallagher – This guy is such a nasty piece of work he insults his audience at his concerts for no reason whatsoever. no wonder his (preposterous dreams of being the next Lennon have now left the building – Grade: A-

2. Paul Weller – You've heard of giving people what they want? Well, meet shoving what they don't want down their throat. Weller is a talented guy but he is pigheaded and arrogant.Grade: B+

3. Rick Wakeman – Rick, on the other hand is pigheaded and arrogant and not a particularly talented guy. – Grade: A-

4.Lou Reed – The sine qua non of assholes, just ask Lester Bangs. Stop Lou on the street and ask for an autograph. I dare you, I double dare you – Grade: A+

5. Ringo Starr – You saw "A Hard day's Night", all that smiley curly ring-y stuff, he was a miserable bastard, and now he is older – Grade: B

6. Johnny Rotten – Yeah, well I interviewed him and he was great so – Grade: C

7. Billy Corgan – arrogant and enervated, he hates everybody and starts every sentence with "Back in my days…" – Grade: B+

8. Morrissey – Yeah, Oscar Wilde for people who've never bothered reading Oscar Wilde – Grade: B

9. Robert Plant – The only thing standing in the way of a Led Zep reunion (well, that and John Bonham having croaked – Grade: B+

10. Gary Barlow – The Take That X factor grump. Didn't he just play a personal concert to a girl dying of cancer. Must try harder – Grade: D
