After reading Mr. JimNasium's stunning thread regarding the snorting of one's father's ashes, I started thinking ... that's pretty crazy.

But, there are a lot of crazy people out there and some of them are Rock stars just like WrinkleMan. So, the real issue is, who is the craziest of them all? Jim Morrison (of waggle your wienie on stage fame)? Marilyn Manson? Ozzy? Paul McCartney for marrying that one-legged gold digger?

I know that the answer is here on ChiefsPlanet, so please advise and thanks.

Hmmm. I had blocked that one from the remnants of my memory entirely, Mr. KcMizzou.

You're absolutely right, though. That ranks.

Good call on GG Allin, Mr. ChiefFripp.

He should be considered solely for recording country songs with poop on his head.

I never heard of Mayhem, but found this quite funny:

Euronymous, in turn, was stabbed to death while in his underwear on August 10, 1993, by the band's bass player, Count Grishnackh (born Christian Vikernes). Grishnackh's alleged motive was jealousy over the fact that Euronymous had a more evil reputation; he inflicted 23 separate wounds, it was also rumored, so as to outdo rival band Emperor's drummer, Faust, who was convicted in the stabbing death of a homosexual acquaintance. When police arrested Grishnackh, they found over 150 kg of stolen dynamite in his house, complete with a plan to blow up a large church on a religious holiday. Grishnackh went on to pursue his electronic-influenced project Burzum while in prison;

Frank Zappa, Iggy Pop, Bon Scott, David Bowie, Ronnie James Dio, Ted Nugent... they've all gone off the deep end... which is part of their genius. Marilyn Manson (one of my favs) is actually a pretty quiet guy off stage and very intelligent/well spoken.

The craziest rock star ever isn't gonna have a clear cut right answer. Degrees of craziness... Ozzy pissing on the Alamo... crazy or just funny? Gene Simmons having sex with 10,000 women... crazy or just damn lucky?


btw... ftr... I have a friend (female) who wants to be cremated and snorted when she dies too... and they way she lives that may not be long.

Hmmm. With all respect, there is a difference, Mr. beer me, between eccentric behaviour or attention-getting stunts and crazy.

I wouldn't consider Ted Nugent, for example, in the same league as GG Allin.

Good point there, Mr. beer me.

But personally, I believe that dark beer is better than light beer, a girl's breasts should be proportional, and marrying a one-legged woman sans prenuptial agreement is 100% certifiable.

I'm getting a faint recollection of a punk dude a couple years ago [maybe a few more], he was stocky/muscled, like a bouncer, and he was either bald or his head was shaved. bashed his head until it was a bloody mess, might've slashed his torso/extremities, might've shat on the stage and rubbed it all over the bloody mess of his body/face. I think he's dead now.

Anyone?

I believe you're referring to GG Allin, Mr. Baby Lee, the King of Rock and Toilet Roll.

Died of a heroin overdose and buried with a bottle of Jack. A hero to soccer moms everywhere.

I kind of agree with you there, Mr. Phobia. However, there's a part of me willing to forgive Freddy for that and anything else he might have done.

To my mind, his music transcended the poop chute flute route.

Syd Barrett

No doubt. His craziness wasn't an act either.

Barrett's behavior became increasingly unpredictable, partly as a consequence of frequent experimentation with psychedelic drugs such as LSD. Many report seeing him on stage with the group, strumming on one chord through the entire concert, or not playing at all. At a show at The Fillmore West in San Francisco, during a performance of Interstellar Overdrive, Barrett slowly detuned his guitar. The audience seemed to enjoy such antics, unaware of the rest of the band's consternation. Before a performance in late 1967, Barrett apparently crushed Mandrax and an entire tube of Brylcreem into his hair, which subsequently melted down his face under the heat of the stage lighting, making him look like "a guttered candle".[4] Nick Mason later disputed the Mandrax portion of this story, stating in the Barrett biography, Madcap, "Syd would never waste good mandies". The image of Syd's melting features would later be used in The Wall film. Link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syd_Barrett)
