Artists And Their Face On Sound...

Hi everyone. =) Another question list. This time I wanted to ask everyone what they think in regards to an artist and how he/she/they reflect their music on you or does it bother you at all? For instance, do you care about image, personality, things they've done or things they haven't done? And does it make you think twice about their music or enhance the experience for you just that little bit more?
1Sam Amidon
All is Well


Don't get me wrong, I loved his music before seeing him live. I held both of his albums in a high regard and had given them the ratings I currently have for them before seeing his shows... but then I went to one of his shows and my respect for him sky rocketed. Easily the most humble and genuine musician I've seen perform. Of course this probably comes from his lack of fame but every fabric in his body screamed that he loved being there and doing what he was doing and that the applause from fans was a cream and cherry reward on top of everything.
2Iron & Wine
The Creek Drank the Cradle


I hold his albums in a high regard personally but I've read countless times online that he can be quite distant and unfriendly when dealing with his fans. I'm not sure how far this goes because I haven't seen him live myself but it definitely has me nervous for seeing him live when I get the chance to. Has anyone seen Sam Beam live? Is he a nice guy?
3Guns N' Roses
Appetite For Destruction


This is a rather obvious one, isn't it? But it goes to the extent where I can't enjoy Guns N' Roses any more. His level of professionalism is so dreadful; it annoys me when I listen to something he has worked on. I know I shouldn't paint the artist too personally with their music but when recent live shows have been so disastrous; it's hard to appreciate Axl Rose's work when he treats his job and his fans with such little respect.
4Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica


Again, I really like their music but perhaps I was unlucky when seeing them at Reading fest (I think it was 2010) and they performed with such little charisma and care. Walked on stage, spoke one sentence half way through "It's f'ing hot", finished and walked off stage. I had a chat with another Modest Mouse fan who described their live shows as 'hit and miss'. I wish they were always hit. =/
5Wild Beasts
Two Dancers


I've seen these guys live twice. There's nothing quite like a man raising a beer to you and saying "Cheers, thanks a lot! We really appreciate you guys coming!". It's subtle but I like it. =) They're humble, relaxed and they perform wonderfully on stage. So, when I go home to listen to one of their albums; all I can see is a man holding a beer and saying "Cheers, cheers! Thanks for picking us to listen to."... probably not that vivid though.
