I can like or dislike a band solely on the basis of an interview.

Me, too. Sometimes I can't help it. It's probably stupid. Image is another thing for me, to a lesser extent. If you're a mediocre band but you've also got a stupid schtick or image, I'm apt to hate you.

Jamie Stewart and Justin Pearson were both very nice to me. The Melvins' drummer was a bit of an ass though. Oh well.

Not really.
I don't really care if musicians behind the music I like have a terrible personality or revolting political views etc.
Maybe I would if they'd be an asshole to me in person but I've never experienced that.


However, what does sometimes put me off listening/buying music is when bands are obviously screwing/disrespecting their fans, i.e. ridiculous ticket prices, godawful sloppy live performances, milking their fans by silly high priced ultra-limited releases, etc.

Yes... The Smashing Pumpkins and Billy Corgan. Siamese Dream, Adore and Mellon Collie are great albums, but I hardly listen to them anymore. I don't know if it's only because Corgan is a big fucking cunt or because I've grown apart from the music, but I do know that I have a hard time taking them seriously because of him.

oh yes, it would highly affect me. the worst case could destroy my love for an artist/band completely. the reason for that is that I dont just like the notes he/she produces, instead of that I like the whole package. the atmosphere, the emotions, the "message". and if this message will be delivered by an asshole I cant take it serious anymore, because I wont respect the person or her work anymore, no matter how much I adored it beforehands, (for the wrong reasons maybe? imagined something different?)
but Ive been on the lucky side so far. met the hairy guys from at the drive-in while being a big fan of them, met eddie vedder (yes, I know) while being a big fan. and some major minor "celebs" too.
the only one I was really afraid of was Lee. and it was the only one where I had thoughts about the "what-if-asshole-topic" before actually talking to him, because it ment such a shitload to me. plus the situation was the most intimate, no one else was around and a bigger time-frame then ususal in such situations like meeting eddie vedder and telling him how great the show was....what could ve happened that would be a big deal? he could have ignored me, but that wouldnt be too bad either.
the lee situation could have been the ber-major-letdown. but I am glad it wasnt. maybe the most memorized 3- cigarette lenght-conversation Ive done so far, hahaha

I only remember one negative experience like that.
I saw Roger Turner play once, it was really great so after the gig I went to the merch table and started considering buying some of his CDs. Being a poor student back then (2001), I just stumbled around so he looked up to me and asked: "Are you going to buy some of these?". I replied: "I don't know, I'm still thinking about it".
So he said, in an almost inaudible fashion: "Then you can buy some food instead" and turned his back on me.
What an old prick.

I can only imagine this applies to the American noise scene. I find more uppity pricks in noise circles than anywhere else.

I can dislike musicians for far more tenuous reasons than their personality.

How about when a musician has some heinous accusations about them? I'm thinking about Jason Crumer being called out as a rapist all over the internet. I guess any person in any band can be responsible for any type of terrible activity. So I gues it's essential to separate the art from the person. I still listen to Burzum. And I alluded to Kurt Vile earlier. Seems like he's full of shit and douchy but his music is great.
