Gene Simmons. Just his obnoxious god like complex. Merchandising himself to death , not for the sake of the band but himself. Kiss kasket?! Give me a break. Non Jews should be the slave labor that keeps the train running?

Alex and Eddie Van Halen for kicking out Michael Anthony out of the band.

Richard Patrick of Filter notoriety.

And you?

I'm so vain,
I probably thought this thread was about me, 'bout me, 'bout me, 'bout me.


Yngwie's gotta be up there, no? But this could be a pretty big list, me thinks.

Ted Nugent.
I'm not saying that I don't get the reasons why some may find him irritating but in all honesty, I truly believe most people, if they sat down and talked with him for an hour, they would leave the room actually liking him.

Last year at the Dallas Guitar Show he signed autographs, took pics, shook hands and spoke with every person for 7 hours straight without a break on both Sat and Sun. Even I had to leave the booth to go to the washroom and have a small break --- but he just kept on going because people were lining up for a long time to meet him.

That doesnt mean he isnt a shitty guy, just that he appreciates fans.

Theres a long list. What did the singer from Filter do?

I am so pleased we can now swear in thread titles, I was all worried we were going "classy" and "kid friendly".

Hey, if you're gonna name call can you at least put up some justification for naming names? ie., Gary Glitter - child pornographer. Don't just throw out Richard Patrick - Ted Nugent - and leave us hanging.

I just finished "Running with the Devil" by Noel Monk. It turns out Ed, Alex, and Dave put Mike on salary after the release of 1984, and to make things worse it was retroactive to before that album was released.
Ed and Dave argued they were the creative geniuses behind the band and Mike hadn't contributed anything (other than back-ground vocals). Alex basically got a full share for being Ed's brother. So Mike had been getting the shaft for almost 30 years before Wolfgang took his place. Good book about the business end of the band.

The guy from Filter paid his band wages that were on par with poverty level! He even admitted to wanting to keep all the money from every gig to himself. Band members are what helped make Filter, Filter.

Did Billy Joel help to end Stegmeyer's life by telling him he was no longer on tour with the band?

He got that from Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails. If you watched the Netflix Hired Guns thing, Richard and other NIN members talk about it.

Nobody killed Stegmeyer but Stegmeyer. He was, again according to extensive interviews in Hired Guns, depressed at least in part about being out of the band yes.

Thread may get canned if you don't edit the title.

It was the devious way that he was let go!

If it gets canned c'est la vie. I guess f bombs don't count.

I'll add Roger Waters for kicking out Wright and trying to prevent founding members from ever playing a Pink Floyd song.

Ginger Baker was/is pretty next level in terms of straight up cruelty.

I'm always surprised by how many of them kept 15 year old (or younger) "girlfriends". Straight up predatory shit. I'd say they top the list by default but I guess that's something different and worse than a garden variety asshole.

I'm fairly confident that most of them would qualify by somebody's asshole criteria. You could say that for anyone I suppose.
