All the madmen: The most peculiar musicians

The concept of “peculiar musicians” won’t raise any eyebrows—we’re all a bit looney, I suppose. But Gibson is featuring a list of rockers-off-their-rockers, “each of whom left behind rich legacies despite sometimes bizarre quirks of character.” On the roster you’ll find notorious nut jobs like Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, and Roky Erickson, in addition to the great Peter Green, about whose detachment from the mainstream they say:

Green began behaving erratically in the late ’60s, appearing on stage in long robes and wearing a crucifix, and encouraging his Fleetwood Mac bandmates to donate the bulk of their earnings to charity.

A bit eccentric, I suppose.

Read the complete list at Gibson’s site.
