You don't have to necessarily like their music (or you could love it), but people you like for whatever reason. There are many, and I'm trying to think of someone not very famous, but I always like Roger Daltrey, especially the way he honors Keith Moon... Jim Morrison, the interviews especially. Frank Zappa was another interesting interviewee, although I can't say I'm a huge fan with the exception of a handful of songs. I like people with integrity, non-conformists.

Jim Morrison, the integrity, rebelliousness, also some fascinating interviews. Frank Zappa was another interesting interviewee, although I can't say I'm a huge fan with the exception of a handful of songs. I like people with integrity, non-conformists. Roger Waters.

The nicest and most likeable musicians I personally have met were 1)Albert King.  I met him in between sets at Hunter College in NYC.  I was at the beverage stand and he just walked up like a regular person.  We both got a beer and sat at one of the 'regular people' tables and talked for about 45 minutes.  I thought I was talking to an old high school buddy.  2) Frank Gambale.  The nicest most humble guy I think I ever met.  Met him at Club Iridium in NYC.  It was after the show.  Check this band out, Billy Cobham on drums, Tom Coster, on keys, the late Victor Bailey, on bass and of course Gambale on guitar.  His genuineness (if that's a word) just floored me.  Just a really nice guy.

My favorite part of Pompeii were the interviews.

Going with people I know over the internet, I like David Hanselmann and Barry Palmer-two singers of Triumvirat-who have been very nice and gracious, having sent me CDs of theirs for free. Personality wise, I get the impression they are pretty easy going about themselves, appreciative of their admirers, and are polite with people...

Nicola Distaso of Libra is a nice chap as well, having thanked me directly for my literary efforts regarding Libra.

The late Eddy Marron of Dzyan was pretty nice to me when we chatted on the phone a few times...

Peter Giger of Dzyan, etc. is pretty cool, as well, and very appreciative of his fans, I think. He has also thanked me several times for my posts on facebook.

Also would like to give a shout out to another couple of musicians I know on facebook that I quite like

Jamie Glaser, who has collaborated with the likes of Jon Anderson, Chick Corea, and Jean luc Ponty, is a great person, very communicative with his fans, and is eternally in my good books for having taken the time to both watch and comment on my Triumvirat video on youtube

and last, but not least, there is Burkhard Lipps, who was in the group Jail with Jaki Liebezeit, Jurgen Fritz and Helmut Koellen, among others, is a wonderful, and appreciative person, and has taken an interest in my fb posts and comments

Dave Grohl is the definition of likable and cool dude whom can sitt on the pavement of Oslo while eating Kebab like anyone else would.
