got the answers man you got the answers on and you ain't got the ashes number 10 Eagles by the late 70s the Eagles were as legendary for their internal conflicts as they were for keeping it mellow and taking it easy much if not all the power in the band was held by Glenn Frey and Don Henley and this translated into conflict for lead guitars Don Felder especially with Frey nice at a concert in July 1980 the tension came to a head with Frei taking offense to a comment Felder made backstage threatening him with physical violence throughout the show and effectively ending the band soon after well I was devastated I was cut adrift and I I wish I was pretty really lost really for a while they're regrouping in the 90s old tensions came back now motivated by contractual and legal matters which resulted in Felder's eventual dismissal it was an incredible amount of talent together in that band but there was a struggle for what songs were going on the record what lyrics were record who was gonna sing what made the band so great gave it it's problem that's right number 9 Lady gaga while most know her as a pop icon with an interesting wardrobe those closer to Lady Gaga see her a little differently than you that's probably hopefully Gaga is reported to be extremely demanding towards resistance with claims abound that she treats her staff like servants a lawsuit between Gaga and former assistant Jennifer O'Neil indicated that O'Neil was deprived of sleeve privacy and subject to instructions anytime of the day others claim to be denied meals hotel staff report that they worked so much as allowed to speak to her and past video crews report that working with Gaga is not an easy experience number eight young thug Atlanta rapper young thug has become notorious for not being where he's supposed to be he's had a lawsuit filed against him for no shows most notably non concerts in Texas and New York in 2016 the latter of which triggered a three hundred and sixty thousand

in his Wyclef Jean video but only in footage he supplied himself as he refused to get out of his car after arriving on set ten hours late number seven Eddie Van Halen friction like whammy bar dive-bombs and tapping have long been a van Halen mainstay aside from bouts of alcoholism guitarist Edward Van Halen is known for bad-mouthing other band members bottom line his work ethic side on off lead singer David Lee Roth said Edie had a completely different creative vision than himself with Roth preferring popular material this rift was enough for Eddie Van Halen to construct his own recording studio and make music with minimal input of other band members Roth's former replacement Sammy Hagar has also been open about the difficulties and lack of chemistry with Edie while house did original bass player Michael Anthony has been characteristically mum about it I was thrown out I was stabbed in the back and left for dead you know and it wasn't you just can't go back and hug and kiss those kind of people that do that to you number six Jean Simmons it's no surprise why gene Simmons is known as the demon best known as the bassist and occasional vocalist with kiss Simmons is also widely known for his right-wing political views infamous womanizing and obnoxious language you know how many women you slept with say in the past five years five years no over the last ten years yes okay ten over two thousand two thousand his infamous ego meanwhile makes people so frustrated that they shy away from being around him white Shannon Tweed for example she's walked out during interviews to avoid listening to him speak while NPR interviewer Terry Gross has described him as nothing more than obnoxious long story short onstage or off Simmons isn't the most fun to be around any idiot can get a woman when they're on the tour but this is a lot more important and a lot more heartfelt than the bragging about the other stuff would you would you cut hold on one second would you stop suddenly going in front of the camera number five Knoll and Liam Gallagher Oasis's front siblings are infamous for their inability to get along and have settled disputes by throwing fruit using instruments as weapons filing lawsuits and generally harassing another it kind of all started to unravel if I'm being honest when he started his : label this tumultuous work environment eventually led to Noah leaving the band in 2009 and Oasis holding following a last-minute cancer the pearance at the V Festival in Chelmsford England just whips out a stall over his new sound system but it's not just a sibling rivalry as aside from the brothers know original band members made it to the end of the ride the band's first drummer Tony McCarroll meanwhile claimed to have been shafted on royalties equipment funds and fire due to personality conflicts with the Gallagher's you know I mean best and worst time when your lives really number four Kanye West Kanye is legendary for his inflated ego and mistreatment of others a former bodyguard said it was easier to look after West's daughter than the rapper himself his toddler like attitude also made him a burden on the set of anchorman 2 he was blasting his music on set refused to turn it down for filming and showed up on days he wasn't scheduled to perform and refused to leave other ventures are also a complicated affair with West's involvement as it took two years for designer Jean tutu to create only three items for one of the rapper's clothing collections because Kanye couldn't make up his mind I am Shakespeare in the flesh why Disney Nike Google now who's gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more number three said to Barrett Pink Floyd's original bandleader was often as baffling as the band's early material a life complicated by schizophrenia and rampant drug use caused him to become an unreliable and difficult person to work with prior to parting ways Barrett would often seemingly forget songs or stare into the stage lights and each wound his guitar while the band attempted to play around him during a rehearsal Barrett trolled the group with an ever-changing composition called have you got it yet which predictably they did not due to his unpredictable nature David Gilmer was brought into the fold as a support guitarist and vocalist and ultimately SIDS replacement you know he had voices and he had trouble keeping a grip on the reality of his situation and on top of that he did take you know too many hallucinogenics number two Mariah Carey the og of pop divas singer Mariah Carey is infamous for her unusual demands and nitpicky attitude regarding her cameo in the house comedian Rob Hubble described her as impossible to work with saying Kari made a huge fuss about not wanting to sing the song she was paid to and also not wanting her character to get killed by bullets but instead deflect bullets like Wonder Woman well one script note was like I don't want to do the scene elsewhere her famous feud with fellow American Idol judge Nicki Minaj resulted in Kari not returning to the program Kari expected to be the sole female judge and was threatened by Minaj's addition and the two clashed on and off camera what's her name before we unveil our top pick here are a few honorable mentions and now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me to other day in the press Miley what's good I hate people I don't know if you knew that number one Axl Rose on a number of occasions roses provoked fans to riot so it's hard to imagine him respecting the people he works with from Steven Adler to slash roses and notorious for being flaky having once showed up late to a concert because he was watching Ninja Turtles too and his antics were partly to blame for the 1992 riot in Montreal he'd said something into the mic and just do it down walked offstage Axl didn't want to be outdone and that's when all hell broke loose with the release of the long discussed much-delayed Chinese Democracy Rose stopped answering requests and phone calls by his record label failed to contribute to the promotion of the album and was later sued by former band manager Irving Azoff for unpaid fees we can relate to Axl in his attitude you know it's what we learned we learned quite a bit on what not to do do you agree with our picks check out these other great clips from
