Top 5: Biffy Clyro – Simon Neil chooses his Top 5 Rock Eccentrics

December 2nd, 2008

Biffy Clyro singer/guitarist Simon Neil took the time to have a chat with Anne Waites about his Top 5 favourite eccentrics in the world of rock. We agreed that there are a lot and that beards are very important.

Rivers Cuomo, Weezer
“He went through the huge beard phase, tried to deconstruct the technique of writing a pop song, sat in his room painted black for three years, realised he didn’t want to do it and now he plays soccer and he’s letting the other guys in the band write songs. He’s probably my favourite eccentric ever.”

Axl Rose, Guns N’ Roses
“Total genius! I think I’m the only person in the world that still rates Axl Rose. I’m mega excited about the new Guns N’ Roses album. He’s the only person that could spend 50 million dollars of a record label’s money. That’s something brilliant in my eyes. It’s shaped up to be a corking record.”
