The Top Ten

John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

Eh, not really. He was kind of a prick when he was alive so giving him beer probably wouldn't be a good idea.

Brilliant, creative, witty and self effacing. Love to have a beer with him!

He was quite a witty guy!

I honestly think he's spam voted on here, since he's number one and none of the remixes included him, but nonetheless, I'd say I choose him!

Lemmy Ian Fraser Kilmister, known as Lemmy, was an English musician, singer and songwriter who founded and fronted the rock band Motörhead. He was a bassist and a singer known for his raspy voice. He died in 2015 from cancer and other health problems.

He knows how to tell funny stories.

@ryanrimmel - haha, weird enough but I understand him and I love his funny stories. He knows a lot about people in the music business.

Itd be a little hard to understand him, but he's a cool dude

R.I.P. Lemmy!
He died today, December 28, 2015, at the age of 70.

Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

I'd gladly sit down with him and a Trooper beer!

Of course, the beer is on him and of course it's Trooper.
Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden launched a new beer named 'Trooper' in 2013, brewed by Robinsons family brewery in Stockport. This is Maiden's very own signature beer, named after one of their signature songs "The Trooper". Cheers!

He's intelligent, cool and with a sense of humor. Even his speaking voice is pleasant and melodic.
And he's the one who sang the song Metal Beer (Metalliolut in Finnish), which illustrates everything I said about him.
Just watch this video: Teräsbetoni - Metalliolut
