I was actually going to add Dave Grohl if he wasn't on the list but he's number one! Dave Grohl is really nice, he cares about his fans. Once during a concert he broke his leg and still finished the concert. Also, once I think the drummer of cage the elephant got sick, so he couldn't play in a concert. Somehow Dave Grohl had been informed of this and he decided to help cage the elephant by substituting for the drummer when he was sick. I went to a Foo Fighters concert recently and it was awesome.
