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.
