The Top Ten Musician Quotes About Other Musicians

Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses: "They’re really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they’re the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can’t believe it."

Umm, I don't think Nirvana were more talented than Guns N' Roses... Kurt wasn't a better guitarist than Slash and wasn't a better singer than Axl either. - Metal_Treasure

Maybe this is the reason people hate Guns N' Roses so much because they are mindless slaves who worship Kobain as if he was a god or something and making bands like Guns N' Roses look like satan or something - christangrant

Arjen Lucassen of Ayreon also talked about Hansi Kursch as the Astronomer in a concept album:
"Hansi was my first choice basically... I had this song “Planet Y Is Alive” and I still remember exactly... I was walking in the forest and I had the melody “planet Y is alive” in my head and I heard it with Hansi’s voice. Like it couldn’t be anyone else! What I like about his voice is that again it’s very distinctive. And he’s an incredibly nice guy as well, one of the nicest guys in the business." - Metal_Treasure
