    Billie Joe Armstrong comes across like a real airhead in interviews. I'm sure he isn't, but that's the way he sounds.

    And I agree, Ted Nugent should shut his trap. What a putz.

    I'd like to see a reality show where Ted Nugent and Ray Manzarek are roommates for a month. That would be more entertaining than The Odd Couple.

    Robert Fripp can be challenging to listen to at interview. :D

    Madonna seems to have a new cause or a new path to enlightenment every time that I see her in an interview.....it makes me think that she's a flake.

    Sting.

    Every rapper.

    John Lydon (at least when he cranks up the hypocrisy).

    Conversely, Johnny Marr is an excellent interviewee.

    I think her flakiness is well documented.

    I'm surprised no one said J Mascis, but I'm not complaining

    Hey I like Uncle Ted (Nugent)
    Yeah, he may get out on a limb sometimes, but when he is on a limb, he is usually dead on with his bow.
    Besides, who wouldn't want to play guitar and shoot guns with the Nuge?

    Keith Richards for me too.
    Hearing him speak is like listening to someone who is very drunk, doped or both.
    A wavy unclear voice that falls away whilst speaking.
    And what he is saying does not cut much ice. Just terrible.

    Also Liam and Noel Gallagher.
    I have got this interview about their Stop the Clocks CD compilation.
    The whole interview is about twenty minutes. After six minutes I stopped registering the number of times they used the word "fxcking". The count was 43 at that moment.

    So, by popular request, here's a recent one with Uncle Ted :D




    I really do like Bumblefoot's solo work. He is an exceptional guitarist with a vision, but can't stand listeing him being interviewed. Or very rarely.

    On the other hand, I almost always sacrifice some time when I bump into an interview with Devin Townsend, whose music is practically and audible armageddon to me that I can stand for about a minute.



    But I like him, when he talks. Not always, mind you!



    And I also like his tele:

    You know what would be real funny? Listening to Keef & Ozzy get into a heated argument. "Rallo farka bargo sungina barchin...."

    The only musician that I ever thought who had anything insightful to say was Frank Zappa otherwise, to quote one of Frank's album titles, "Shut up and play your guitar"!

    Bono.
    Sting.
    Just about any teen star with a cause. "It's IMPORTANT to know about..." and then ramble on, being obvious it is something that they barely know anything about. (many actors fall into this category).

    Any singer who has to remind us who "the real heroes" are. In case we can't figure that out.

    I saw one interview with one of the ACDC Brothers, I think Angus. Every sentence starts with "Uh, yeah, y'know..." and ends with "y'know... yeah." With a "y'know" and "uh..." thrown in every fourth or fifth word. After that, I could only listen to him play.

    The worst musician interview I've ever seen was Greg Allman being interviewed by Piers Morgan a few months ago. Watching that left me thinking that Greg has fried a good many brain cells over the years.
