The most dedicated, least rational fans
There's a great read over on the Guardian website by Chuck Klosterman about fans who look like their idols, accompanied by a gallery of portraits where you try to guess the band by looking at the fans (and who do you guess is represented above?). I got most of them right and found the guessing process to be delightful.
Klosterman ranks the following ten groups as having the most dedicated, least rational fans. Discuss:
2. Tori Amos
5. Bruce Springsteen
6. Black Sabbath (particularly the Tony Martin era, for some reason)
7. Jimmy Buffett
8. Iron Maiden
9. Guided By Voices
Read his rationale and the whole entertaining article here. Images are taken from the forthcoming book Disciples by James Mollison. If you're going to be in NYC, these prints will be exhibited at New York's Hasted Hunt Gallery June 12 through August 16.
