G.E. Smith farked over every performance he was ever in with excessive douchery, including this one with T-Bone and Clapton. The former SNL guitarist/musical director made me want to go Elvis on my TV every gotdammed time he mugged his way on screen. None so douchey

The Edge tops every douche on this list, except maybe John Mayer.


While everybody on that list is an amazing douche nozzle, at least they're pretty good at their instrument.


The Edge has a 14 to 1 ratio of effects to actual notes he plays, and more annoyingly, he named himself "The Edge" to  play in an adult contemporary band.

Gonna have to ask to add the guy from Rage Against The Machine to the list, though. He's a tool bag just because they added a special disclaimer to their albums telling everyone that no synthesizers were used like he has to jerk himself off that much more.

I won't argue with what Eddie became, but if you were there in 1978, Eruption was mind-blowing and ground-breaking.  People thought he was somehow using studio trickery to use it, to the point where on the next album he did it again on an acoustic.  He deserves the credit, you can't take it away from him.

mahavishnunj: qsblues: mahavishnunj: qsblues: mahavishnunj: also, none of you retards(or is it just one of you? im not scrolling back up) have listed a single example of frank being douchey. failure always runs high in guitar threads, so i guess business as usual here.

does failure to read posts before you start typing count?  Well then ... carry on ... business as usual. :P

i read them all. didnt see a single one.

you've obviously missed this part, which is from this very thread:


 Frank would stay in separate, suite level hotel rooms while the band stayed in fleabag motels, would fire band members for getting high (in the 60's & 70's ... REALLY?) file lawsuits against people he thought were trying to make more money than he was, berate band members on and off stage, regularly cheated on his wife, was an absentee father because touring was more important than raising his kids, even after he didn't need the money ... the list goes on and on.  Read "Zappa" by Barry Miles.  Much more informative and objective than "The Real Frank Zappa Book".  He really does tell the truth about what the man was really like.

Fantastic musician and composer, a true definition of the word, "genius", unparalleled in his art, one of the GOAT's.  But like Michael Jordan, Joe Montana, Buddy Rich and Miles Davis, a colossal dickbag of a human being on just about every level.

no, i saw it. i just didnt think you would be retarded enough to lap up hearsay and anecdotal evidence like that as gospel. he stayed in nicer rooms than his band. wow, what a "colossal dickbag"! he only wrote 100% of the music and handled all the business shiat. which of these band members were fired for getting high? you think maybe it interfered with their performance and THATS why they got fired? i feel like im getting trolled at this point. regularly cheated on his wife, im all for that.  he was a rock star and she is a terrible coont. everything else you listed is just as dumb if not more.


what, are you pissed that you didn't get included on the list as well?  Lighten up.  Frank's dicketry is almost as well known as his musicianship.  I gave the man props for his unmistakeable talent, and cited him as one of my musical heroes, along with Miles Davis (douchebag) and Buddy Rich (douchebag).  Since he's dead and can't defend or refute anything, we rely upon journalists who have sat down and interviewed the guy.  Gospel?  Not hardly.  Better source than internet tough guy babble?  Probably.  Just going by authorized biographies released by a respected journalist.  Check out some of Barry Miles' work; he's no slouch in his profession.

Frank Zappa.

Probably my all time favorite musician next to Miles Davis and John Coltrane, my favorite composer next to Beethoven and Mozart, and a much more shrewd businessman than Donald Trump, but he was a douche of intergalactic proportions, and his douchebaggery continues to this day courtesy of Mrs. Gail Zappa, who sues bar bands for playing his music without permission from her.

As with everything else related to music and guitar, all of these punks are amateurs.  Zappa IS the master.

Soulcatcher: Close2TheEdge: List fails without Fripp.  Fripp has always been a douche, but extremely great talent is justified in being that way.  Fripp used to insult the audience if they clapped too loud or didn't pay attention enough.  He's mellowed out some.  I always loved the fact that he insisted playing sitting down.  He's a purist, and it shows.

Fripp doesn't like to sign autographs or shake hands with strangers or have people taking pictures during performances. So what?

Do a search on Robert Fripp's Diary and you will see that Fripp shares more intimate details of his life than any other musician I can think of. He has kept this online diary for years. He talks about when he got up in the morning, what he had for breakfast, what book he is reading, how the Mynx is feeling, what's blooming in his garden, repairs that he needs to have done in his house, the weather, what friends have called, what music he is listening to, how his pet bunny is doing (seriously).

He lives on another plane of existence, we are lucky to have partial access to him anyway.

/Most Farkers don't even know who he is, so who cares?


Fripp is Adrian Monk as a guitarist: an odd, super-intelligent guy with a lot of quirks and a penchant for pissing off his friends and co-workers because the subtleties and nuances of human interaction frequently escape him.

Yes, he's often off-putting to Crimson audiences (at least those not used to his manner of interacting with them).  His rationale, however, at least makes logical sense, even if you don't buy into it: excessive crowd noise disturbs the "zone" that the band members try to get into when they're doing their improvisational work (which is much of the show). Music is a fragile thing, and being broken from that creative zone causes poorer performances by the musicians, which in turn means that the audience isn't getting what they pay for--even if they may have contributed to the problem.

Fripp considers himself "unmusical" and considers that every note he's ever played to be the product of years of practice; he's mentioned Giles, McDonald, Collins, Wetton, and Levin all to be far more naturally-talented than him.  He believes the music business to be a necessary evil (although he hates the way it's run) because it's the only way for the musicians to be adequately compensated for the work they put in.  That's why he hates file-sharing, concert taping, bootleg recordings, sampling, and unauthorized photography--because he also hates the non-musical merchandising apparatus, and he considers the musical output to be the only legit way for a musician to earn money; file-sharing, etc. infringe upon that right.  That's also why he keeps remastering old releases and digging up new concert tapes to sell--if the audience is going to get recordings of the band, they should get the best-quality recordings possible.  Those recordings--and the concerts thereof--are how the musician earns compensation for the hard work he puts into mastering his craft.

Some would say that Fripp's treatment of his bandmates qualifies him for this list, and some of the bandmates might have said the same thing.  But he's gone to great lengths to try to repair any damaged relationships post-Crimson, and the majority of former Crimson members are on good terms with him.  Haskell, who got the worst treatment, (at least to outsiders) has forgiven Fripp (then again, they also go back farther than any of the others, having been childhood friends).  Fripp seems to be unable to not piss off Greg Lake, who probably  comes off as the biggest asshat of the group anyway.  He also patched things up with the Islands-era members, with the exception of Burrell (who never forgave him, and died a few years ago).  Even Bruford, who was the target of much of Fripp's ire for 20+ years, never really took it personally ("I had the thickest skin, so it was fair that I took most of the barbs.").

So he's an odd character who often comes across as an asshat; he's referred to himself as "a wretched creature" or some such on numerous occasions.  But for every snide comment he makes about someone else, he's probably made an equal number about himself.  He certainly has an ego, but it's probably less obnoxious than most "star" musicians, because he recognizes that the musicians are servants of the music, not the other way around.  "I didn't choose music--music chose me.  And it couldn't have chosen someone less likely to succeed at it," he's said.

(b)actually im not going by that at all.  im going by the words of every single great musician who has ever been in his band. id be interested to see someone that actually played with him trash him, who ISNT a member of the grandmothers.


*blinks*

Ok sport.  You got me.  Apparently my standard for being a douche is too high, or low as the case may be.  Cheating on your wife, the mother of your children is ok because "he's a rock star".  Paying band members shiat wages when you can afford to pay them what they're worth passes muster.  Being supported by and making fun of the audience who pays to see your concerts is just peachy.  I'll let all that go.

Tina Turner showed up during the "Apostrophy/Overnight Sensation" recordings, and since nobody else could do it, sang the infamous break in "Montana".  Did it in one take.  Frank was prepared to pay her a handsome amount for nailing such a tough track.  Ike Turner takes him aside, and sez, "You pay her straight scale.  She just did her job, that's all she deserves."  Frank paid her 20 bucks and called it a day.

Now, I'm sure it's quite well known by now how much of a dickbag Ike Turner was, and how he not only exploited, but beat the ever loving snot out of Tina like it was his full time job.  She still showed up to the session with bruises that were still healing.  You'd think that anyone with half of a conscience would slip her a couple Benjamins and tell her to get the hell away from this asshole while she still could walk.  But not Frank.

So yeah, my "douchebag" meter might be a bit sensitive for manly men such as yourself who think that all these antics are okay.  Just because I read material from award winning authors doesn't mean jack shiat, either.  In MY book, Frank Zappa is a douche.  Nobody has to agree, just my opinion, but I've talked to Ike Willis and Ray White personally, and they both said, "Yeah, he was tough to work for, and was an asshole at times, but putting up with him was worth it."

Heresay and conjecture?  Take it as you want, but most geniuses ARE douchebags.

"Our sincerist apologies to those whose conversations we're interrupting."  Love it.

On the Thrak tour, Fripp used to sit among the effects racks under minimal stage lighting, believing that he was better heard than seen.  He got a fan letter complaining that he wasn't visible to the audience, so he sent the writer a check for one-sixth of the ticket price (as Fripp was one-sixth of the band).

A purist, a master troll, and, in many ways, an anachronism.

So the one example you give of actual Zappa douchebaggery is by Gail.  Can you give an example of Frank's douchebaggery?  And for the record I probably wouldn't disagree with you, cancelling the 1988 tour wasn't too cool, and I know he pissed off the Saturday Night Live cast back in the 70s, but when you declare someone the master you should probably give an example or two.

Seriously, Eddie VH inspired millions of pale young schoolboys to plunk down their Mothers credit cards and buy their first electric guitar. Eddie is the real farking McCoy: he tried anything and everything using a few crude tools, his imagination and talent to come up with sounds and experiment with dynamics. In his own way Eddie was a lot like his hero Les Paul. If Eddie had been born in another time I have no doubt his name would be on a slew of patents for rock n roll gear. As it stands he is responsible for a few gadgets and a slew of manufacturers have sought out his input on their goods before going to market. Plus he did the matrimonial mambo with Valerie Bert&Ernie, which itself is worth a standing ovation.
