There's almost nothing we won't believe about the behavior of musicians. But so often the tales of reckless hedonism, diva antics, or random weirdness end up being untrue.

    Musician Feuds That Got Out Of Hand

    Musicians, being a volatile, emotional, damaged, and creative lot, understandably have spats with each other over a ton of petty crap most people wouldn't stew over for more than a second.

Just imagine being on tour: Everybody allowed to come into contact with you is there to cater to your every whim, thousands of people show up every night in different cities just to hear you rock, and you get paid obscene amounts of money for this. You could be the Dalai Lama, and that would still go to your head.
