    Some gems in there:

    24. Courtney Love on Dave Grohl
    “As for that drummer, well, he’s hit on me so many times. He’s just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he ‘hates’ me more than ‘anyone else.’ Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else (except a journalist) … He’s just sub-mediocre kind of [guy] who does this ‘nice guy’ nonsense.”
    Kurt sucked. He always sucked. Sadly, he died a martyr, and now we have to hear about his shit for eternity. Grohl may not be the most gifted musician in the world, but he's certainly been far more entertaining over the years than Cobain ever was.

    23. Dave Grohl on Courtney Love
    “She’s an ugly fucking bitch.”
    I agree.

    7. Elton John on Madonna
    “Anyone who lip-synchs in public on stage when you pay 75 to see them should be shot.”
    I also agree.

    2. Anton Newcombe on Eric Clapton
    “People talk about Eric Clapton. What has he ever done except throw his baby off a fuckin’ ledge and write a song about it?”
    holy shit that was harsh.

    Some of those are pretty amazing. And humorous.

    Pat Metheny's famous loathing of Kenny G didn't make the list. - Pat Metheny on Kenny G

    Here's a good bit:

    But when Kenny G decided that it was appropriate for him to defile the music of the man who is probably the greatest jazz musician that has ever lived by spewing his lame-ass, jive, pseudo bluesy, out-of-tune, noodling, wimped out, fucked up playing all over one of the great Louis's tracks (even one of his lesser ones), he did something that I would not have imagined possible. He, in one move, through his unbelievably pretentious and calloused musical decision to embark on this most cynical of musical paths, shit all over the graves of all the musicians past and present who have risked their lives by going out there on the road for years and years developing their own music inspired by the standards of grace that Louis Armstrong brought to every single note he played over an amazing lifetime as a musician.

    My mate posted the film director on film director one on my wall this morning as well as the author on author one. Both are similarly hilarious.

    Pretty sure 28. was said by Frank Zappa...or something incredibly similar was said by Zappa as told by Vai on the commentary on his live at the Astoria DVD.

    Yes, I watched a live music dvd with the commentary on...

    5. Boy George on Elton John
    “All that money, and he’s still got hair like a fucking dinner lady.”
    Someone buy George a mirror.
