Was gonna go 4 cause fair play he has released some utter tripe, but reading some of you philistines saying he’s bad means the big man gets a solid 5.
Come Undone is one of my favourite songs in the world, the lyrics are amazing and I straight up will die on that hill. Sexed up too. And it’s pretty impressive that songs like that can resonate so deeply with lots of people, that’s undeniably good song writing.
He’s also not an arsehole at all, just a deeply flawed man and he does have self awareness of that. He’s been relatively open about his mental health, self esteem and addiction problems and good for him for doing so. Fair enough I’ve never met him but he seems like one of the nicer men in music, especially of that era. And he’s set up a charity in his hometown to to “improve local conditions and strengthen community life by giving money to those who are disadvantaged.” according to Wikipedia.
Accidentally got a fan tattoo for him a few years ago (I didn’t choose it, it came out of a gumball machine and then got it tattooed on me) and it’s the same as one he has on his neck. Was chuffed to find that out.
Better than radiohead and also I want him to shag me senseless, ideally with Come Undone playing in the background.
It’s up thread a bit. I was mostly positive on him coming into the thread but I feel that would go against some of my principles so sadly had to bump him down to a 2. I still like the songs for the most part
Maybe but then why are we assuming this guy was the brains behind it to start? There’s no proof that he had much influence on the final version and the story seems to go they drunkenly recorded an early draft which no one has heard and it was significantly rewritten (and the guy says the bits that made it a hit weren’t done by him).
