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.
Good guy Grohl totally deserves this number one spot. If you don't believe me, look up good guy Grohl on YouTube
He's just the best

I love all the things Gerard says to his fans. He has been so kind to people and I am proud of anyone who looks up to him, he is such a talented person with his singing and comic careers. If people would look past the fact he has been labeled "emo" they could see what an amazing person he truly is. He also looks after his younger brother a lot and you can research all of the things he has done for his brother like I know he has written 2 songs for him. Once his brother, Mikey had a mental breakdown and was in a lot of deep stuff so Gerard had "Famous Last Words" written for Mikey and another time after My Chemical Romance split and Gerard started doing solo work Mikey wasn't doing so well because he was severely depressed and was going through drug addictions and one time he overdosed and went to the hospital so Gerard wrote a song called "Brother" and a lot of facts say he wrote it next to Mikey's hospital bed.
