There was a piece in the Telegraph the other day about rock star insults, though only a few were real gems worth remembering.
Such as when Peter Grant turned up at a Dylan gig and introduced himself: “Hi Bob, I’m Peter Grant, I manage Led Zeppelin”. To which His Bobness replied drily: “I don’t come to you with my problems, do I?”.
The other good one in the Telegraph was from Slash about his nemesis: “I once asked Axl why he had left off the “e” in his name and he started crying because he thought he’d spelt it right”.
Lester Bangs wrote clever insults, such as his description of Barry White “nineteen hundred pounds of pure lumbering animal, makes Leslie West look like Steven Tyler”.
Any others spring to mind?
