We had Sean Kinney and Jerry Cantrell in studio earlier today for about 30 minutes. They were great (which makes us look like we know what we’re doing) because they were honest but funny and easy going. Why bring it up? Ever heard Alice in Chains? If so, do you think ‘funny’ or ‘easy going’? Didn’t think so. Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise. We’ve also had the misfortune of the having the occasional unpleasant surprise, e.g., Aaron Lewis (Staind), comedian Charlie Murphy, NBA’s Steve Francis and a handful of others. Then again, Chad frickin’ Kroeger of Nickelback was one of the coolest people we’ve talked to… and didn’t WANT to like him. Dammit! That’s how it goes; you meet someone you always wanted to meet and one of two things happen; they’re cool as hell or they let you down. Today we wanted to know: WHO DID YOU MEET THAT WAS COOLER THAN YOU THOUGHT THEY’D BE OR WHO DID YOU MEET THAT WAS A COMPLETE DOUCHE WAFFLE?
We’ll start with the cooler than expected people:
Dee Snyder… Twisted Sister
R. Lee Ermey… granted, this guy is biases because Ermey is his uncle
Marcus Trufant… a LOT of people said this about Trufant today
Ken Griffin Jr.
Geezer Butler… Black Sabbath bassist
Ron Jeremy… never met anyone who didn’t like Ron. A great guy
Stevie Ray Vaughn
Taylor Lautner… hairless ‘Twilight’ eye candy for the girls
Believe it or not, Gary Ridgeway made this list because before people knew he was out of his f**king mind, he used to tip well
And now the douche waffles:
Merlin Olsen… former NFL player with a weird beer
Penn Gillette… always hear that he’s a big, sweaty pr*ck
Billy Corgan… I don’t think anyone likes Billy Corgan
Sully from Godsmack… met the guy a few times and he’s a douche 50% of the time and really cool 50% of the time
Neil Schoen… guitarist from Journey
Ken Griffey Jr.
Bill Cosby… never met the guy, but I’ve heard repeatedly that he’s an a**hole
Demi Moore… was described as a “bitch”
OK bitches, time to get myself together for the Alice in Chains show tonight. Miles and I are headed there this evening with the Drunk in Charge Ryan Castle while Thee Ted Smith is going to tomorrow night’s show. Yea, that’s how we role, bitches.
Until tomorrow, check my brain and STAY BEAUTIFUL!”
