Top 10 Metal Musicians with the Greatest PersonalitiesMetal_Treasure People on this list are great and talented musicians with great personalities. 2 in 1.
The Top Ten
Meh, he was a hot shot. He got into a lot of fights, and dehumanizer was socially/politically a disaster. But, as Metal_Treasure said he was a good guy in the sense Ozzy wasn't. - SoldierOfFortune
Mr. Golden Voice was also a great person. R.I.P. Dio.
A nice guy with impeccable ethics. Also wise, friendly, accessible.
Known for talking with fans for hours after live shows. Never left a fan without an autograph no matter how long the line was and paid attention to every fan who approached him.
Dio and his wife didn't have own children and adopted a boy.
Dio probably didn't do drugs. - Metal_Treasure
He sang a whole album with tongue cancer. He's got unique skills in different areas:
1) part-time metal singer
2) part-time pilot
3) part-time businessman
4) part-time T.V. entertainer with a great sense of humor (hosted Headbangers Ball, etc)
5) pretty good fencer who was a member of the UK Olympic team.
6) Captain Dickinson took part in rescue operations with his plane, incl. in other countries. I watched a BBC News report (The Flight Of Astraeus) where he flew back home passangers who were stranded in Egypt. Yep, "Hallowed Be Thy Plane". - Metal_Treasure
He's got a great powerful voice and he's a very interesting person, too.
He left a major metal band (Iced Earth) to help the US after September 11 terrorist attacks - he became a police officer in the police department in Georgetown, Delaware. Thank god, he returned to music in 2007. - Metal_Treasure
A god given voice and unique personality. Intelligent, friendly, wise, honest, hard working. He reads a lot and plays video games, most often - D&D.
He doesn't smoke and doesn't look like a person who does drugs or drinks too much. When on tour, he calls his wife every day. He's been married for over 20 years and is known for not cheating on his wife. Some fans, musicians and bloggers from different sites make fun of him for not cheating on his wife and call him stupid.
He played for charity with Blind Guardian. - Metal_Treasure
He formed one of the most iconic metal bands and wrote one of the most iconic metal songs ever - Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Every time I watch him on videos (music or interviews) I feel this guy just can't be a bad person. - Metal_Treasure
A very solid rhythm guitarist and amazing songwriter who's probably the most patriotic metal musician.
He's a rebel but he's got a very good heart. He's also a fighter with very strong character that helped him save Iced Earth several times during crisis situaltions when key members were leaving (Matt Barlow became a cop and so on).
I've read interviews with his wife and she obviously knows personally many metal musicians even outside Iced Earth and I conclude Jon Schaffer doesn't keep her away from his professional life. - Metal_Treasure
One of the best metal drummers who's very smart and very friendly during interviews. You just feel this guy is very nice.
He's got a university degree in computer sciences and was an Associate professor at a percussion department. - Metal_Treasure
She's an animal rights activist and a vegan. - Metal_Treasure
Death metal pioneer. He was one of the nicest guys in metal.
He's got a great voice and amazing personality. He often plays for charity all over the country (Finland). - Metal_Treasure
Shouldn't really be on here. He's not metal. - Aragorn98
Pretty clean guy. He's a vegetarian and doesn't drink, smoke or take drugs.
He also doesn't try to get involved in Celtic Frost's influence on modern artists, stating that it's not a healthy thing. I agree because I think it'll just make you think you're above every band of today just because you influenced them.
