I think Varg takes the cake for musician who needs to be ignored when he's not making music.
(Then again, as I've said before - if anyone, musician or not, agreed with me completely on politics, I'd be scared.)
Official forum economist. Explodes when thrown.
Bands I'd love to see as DLC for Rock Band:
Bal Sagoth 
I hate having to clarify, but I'm fairly certain I only use this username here and on RYM.
The person using this name on reddit, youtube, and okcupid is not really me.
Peekyou.com is not good for my paranoia.
I probably couldn't listen to Gary Numan or David Byrne if I let a musician's personality get in the way of my listening at this point. Both of them are ego-driven to the point of madness. I'd probably add Morrissey to the list, too, but most of his public shenanigans fall into obvious troll behavior.
Also: Skrewdriver. Donaldson's got a helluva voice.

Devo - "Smart Patrol/Mr. DNA"
ro: put together my random off-the-cuff evaluation of my favorite albums from each of discogs's major genres:
electronic: boo williams - 'home town chicago lp'
rock: christian death - 'only theatre of pain'
pop: zhou xuan - 'the legendary chinese hits'
funk / soul: alemayehu eshete - 'ethiopiques 9: alemayehu eshete (1969-1974)
hip hop: dj krush & toshinori kondo - 'ki-oku'
blues: ethel waters - 'the chronogical classics 1929-1931'
children's: the child development group of mississippi - 'head start'
classical: julius eastman - 'unjust malaise' [for now - conlon nancarrow is probably gonna usurp eastman soon]
folk, world, and country: v/a - 'sacred guitar and violin music of the modern aztecs'
jazz: django reinhardt - 'the classic early recordings in chronological order'
reggae: augustus pablo - 'king tubbys meets the rockers uptown'
after writing out those genres, i realized how silly their major umbrellas are, so brass/military was removed, as well as latin (seems like it can't be super distinct from folk/world/country). also, non-music and stage & screen... uh...
also, re:moby, his politics are so bland, and even though i'm on the left side of things, self-satisfied, vaguely elitist liberals annoy me just as much as staunch republicans; they miss the point of being the supposed working class party when they're always so tin-eared to the problems of the actual people. i avoid the 'l-word' at all costs, even if the 's-word' gets me ****
