20 Of The Greatest Rock Star Insults Of All Time

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

Living the life of a rock star is something of a dying art form.

Even Liam Gallagher has had to resort to making his own tea these days, although we did get THIS outstanding video as a result of that unlikely scenario.

Give a man a mic and he will eventually diss someone, which is why history is littered with classic rock star insults. The Telegraph have picked the greatest of all time, and we’re going to pick 20 that would have hit right where it hurts.

Let’s get nasty:

“A completely dysfunctional character and a cretin.”

Bono on Chris Martin

“There was this other group warming up… and they were terrible. I said, ‘Shut them c—s up!’ And they were still warming up, so I threw a bottle at them… I just thought they were a load of retarded Irish folk singers.”

Mark E Smith [ The Fall’s frontman] on Mumford and Sons

“It’s the most brutal, ugly, desperate, vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear.”

Frank Sinatra on Elvis Presley (and rock ‘n’ roll)

“All that money, and he’s still got hair like a f—–g dinner lady.”

Boy George on Elton John

“It’s like a monkey with arthritis, trying to go onstage and look young.”

Elton John on Keith Richards

“Marianne Faithfull had no fun with his tiny todger. I know he’s got an enormous pair of balls – but it doesn’t quite fill the gap.”

Keith Richards on Mick Jagger

“Personally, I consider Slash a cancer and better removed, avoided—and the less anyone heard of him or his supporters, the better.”

Axl Rose on Slash

“I once asked Axl why he left the ‘E’ off his name. He started crying and said he thought he’d spelt it right”.

Slash on Axl Rose

“I’m forever near a stereo saying, ‘What the f— is this garbage?’ And the answer is always the Red Hot Chili Peppers.”

Nick Cave

“He’s not even the best drummer in The Beatles”

John Lennon on Ringo Starr

“Don’t call your band Nine Inch Nails if you have a three-inch one”.

Courtney Love on Trent Reznor

“One time we saw some hookers but when we got closer we realised it was Motley Crue”.

James Hetfield on Mötley Crüe

“Bob is not authentic at all. He’s a plagiarist, and his name and voice are fake. Everything about Bob is a deception.”

Joni Mitchell on Bob Dylan

“Pick a note and sit on it for a while, OK?”

Billy Joel on Christian Aguilera

“Chad Kroeger is to rock what KFC is to chicken”.

Corey Taylor from Slipknot on Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger

“Is he just doing a bad Elvis pout, or was he born that way?”

Freddie Mercury on Billy Idol

“If Morrissey says not to eat meat, then I’ll eat meat. That’s how much I hate Morrissey.”

The Cure’s Robert Smith on Morrissey

“Marilyn Manson? Yeah, really original. Stick some make-up on and give yourself a girl’s name. That’s never been done.”

Alice Cooper

“She’s gonna get her ass whupped. I can’t stand her. She had no business up there, on a big ol’ President day, singing my song that I’ve been singing forever.”

Etta James on Beyoncé

“You see blokes like Craig David meet a girl on Monday and make love by Wednesday. What’s the delay? Craig needs to work on his approach.”

Derek Smalls (Spinal Tap) on Craig David

Oh Spinal Tap, how your legacy lives on.
