AC/DC, Coldplay, Guess Who Voted Nicest Autograph Givers

In the wild world of autograph-seeking, there’s apparently good guys and bad guys, especially in Canada, where a recent poll named the best and worst rock stars to pester for a John Hancock.

 

According to a survey by HoundsTV.com, AC/DC came out on top as the nicest guys to ask for an autograph, with Coldplay and the Guess Who coming in second and third, respectively.

 

Here’s what HoundsTV.com said about AC/DC: “From the time they checked into their downtown Toronto hotel, until boarding the bus to play the sold-out stadium gig, to after lunch on Bloor St. the next day, Angus Young, Malcolm Young, Cliff Williams, and Brian Johnson (and yeah, even the usually tough drummer, Phil Rudd) were signing champs and all round great guys, greeting fans and collectors at every turn.”

 

As far as the not-so-nice stars went, the top jerks were former Led Zeppelin band-mates Robert Plant and Jimmy Page, who reportedly refused to give out a whole lotta love. "Page announced on arrival, regarding autograph requests, 'I'm kinda finished with that,'" HoundsTV.com quotes him as saying.

 

Bon Jovi, the Eagles and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder also came in at the bottom of the list, with one autograph hound labelling Jon Bon Jovi “an asshole,” plain and simple.

2. COLDPLAY

 

Chris Martin and the boys spent a few days in Toronto during early August for two concerts and a few television and radio station appearances to talk up the new album. All the guys from the band were great about signing and always taking time to greets fans and pose for photos. There was especially a lot of attention on Chris Martin and he was a class act - always polite to fans and autograph collectors.

This is soooo true! I always see the boys taking time off to do autographs...I remember going to Jay Leno last year in July. There's this girl who goes to Jay Leno taping;s for a living (it's a hobby of hers) and she's never missed a show, and when Coldplay came out to do pictures and autographs, she said that was a first for her! She said they were soooo nice and she's never seen a band or actor/actress do that before!

 

I met Chris Martin after too...I know it was a long day and he was very tired and exhausted but he stopped to do an autograph and picture anyway!

Is this the video where the girl doesn't know that Guy's name is Guy?! And doesn't understand when she's asking her friend his name why he keeps saying 'Guy' and she like 'what guy...??' :laugh3:
