The Six Most Uncool Members Of Cool Bands
Last week in this very column, we counted down the six coolest members of uncool bands. This week, we flip the script. Here are the six most uncool members of cool bands, and they're all probably really nice people.
6. Jon Anderson - singer, Yes
Jon Anderson is the reason Rush fans think Yes fans are nerds. His lyrics are all fairy dust, and he tends to bring the band into his Renaissance Faire universe rather than contribute to its badassness. When Anderson and Yes cohabitate properly, the band is unstoppable. "Close To The Edge," man, seriously. But when Yes becomes the Jon Anderson show, like on "Wonderous Stories," it's pretty weak.
5. Jimmy Chamberlin - drummer, Smashing Pumpkins
