I personally haven’t met anyone in Three Days Grace, but from hearing some other people’s experiences meeting them and seeing videos of them, they all seem very humble, especially Brad. - 3DG20

The Contenders

11 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

People always judge him by his looks, but don't focus much on his music. And even though his music seems bad to some people, it all has meaning to it. He's also a very nice and smart guy in real life. I don't care if anyone agrees with me or not, Marilyn Manson doesn't deserve the hate he gets. And personally, I love him.

I have also heard about it. He's very annoying by his looks, but in real life he's actually good. - zxm

Good personalities? - zxm

I hate how some people dis Ozzy and put him on the bad list. In what way is he bad? Just because he did a lot of hard drugs and alcohol over the years doesn't make him a bad person. And it's not like he's the only one. Most musicians do drugs and alcohol but it doesn't make them bad people. Ozzy is actually a great guy and he's a kickass musician. I love Ozzy!

I think he deserves a lot more, especially after he left Metallica. Personality-wise, he was the best member of Metallica during his time in the band. In most interviews he is involved in, he seems pretty cool and down-to-earth. It's a shame the band had to be jerks in the old days which led to Newsted's leave.


Still though, I'm happy he's back on terms with Metallica :). And while he may not play metal anymore, he's still active playing acoustic music. Still doesn't change the fact that I love Jason Newsted personality wise :P. - CrimsonShark

Tom has a great personality for these reasons:

He is creative and artistic:By far one of the most creative music artists of today. He never samples his music and always creates it with his bandmates, his lyrics have great quotes that are memorable and well thought, his guitar riffs are catchy and memorable. Not only does he make the music, he makes movies, books, and other stuff with it, every creative job possible. His books and movies are full of great landscapes and originality. I even saw some drawings by him and he is actually really good at drawing, and in some aspects, better than me, I think he made the Blink-182 art cover for their Self Titled album (it looks like his art). His painting and coloring is amazing, I want to color like that. And he can draw good proportions and nice character designs, too bad he doesn't use his artwork in many things, it is amazing. Even his son said he is good at art.

The way he treats his fans: Tom made a free album just for his ...more - AnimeDrawer

I just realized... he is just like me! He is the famous person that is closest to my personality and all. I have so much in common with him it is scary.

He's a very strong personality. Axl Rose threatened him to put off his mask. He left Guns N' Roses, but never put off his mask. He doesn't care about if he's in one of the greatest rock bands or not. Ozzy Osbourne also offered him to work with him only if he had put off his buckethead. He didn't do it either.

On the other hand, he has good reputation for close relationship to his family. Especially his mother. He wrote an entire album for her.

Also, once he gave his guitar to his fans for playing it. Unlike Chuck Berry "No one touches my guitar". - zxm
