Who is COOL to you?
« on: February 01, 2020, 01:56:35 PM »
Regardless of the music, what musicians just have the swag, who is too cool - in your opinion?

Feel free to specify an era if the coolness was concentrated in a particular time.

My two all time favourite people in music are Mick Jagger and Prince.  Keith Richards and Michael Hutchence would be next.  Adam's quite cool as well, or he used to be.

I used to think Steven Tyler was pretty cool...those long swaggering legs, those scarves, rings, etc. But then I got old.

Now...I think Adam is about as cool as cool gets.

I think Prince is pretty hard to beat for cool.

David Bowie. Mick.

Michael Stipe annoys me but he can be cool. Axl is an asshole but that hair and those moves were cool.

I might have picked Madonna but...

Yeah, Prince was very cool. Bowie was unbelievable live in the 70's.

As far as living musical artists go, Jimmy Page and Herbie Hancock are like eternal coolness personified. Siouxsie Sioux as well. Oh, gotta throw in legendary bassist Tony Levin, who's played with like everybody. Met him once, and even though I know better, I would've sworn he invented the gangsta lean that evening. Bill Bruford gave him a run for the money than night, though. They were both funny as hell.

I don't think Bono was ever cool, but Edge and Adam sure af were. Hell, they still are.

More on this later, when I figure out just how I want to say something.

Andrew Eldritch was pretty damn cool circa 1987.
