    No, I don't think so. Not yet anyway...there is always time for people to disappoint me

    No, but I've done the reverse and ended up liking folks I never cared for earlier in life. Not going to elaborate. Though I wouldn't say they became an idol or hero, just I respect them more now that theyve gone. Sometimes it won't sink in until too late.

    same. i don't really have idols though, i don't think. if i did, it would be people i already know well enough that i wouldn't be likely to be surprised by them.

    I wouldn't even call him my idol and I don't hate him as a person, but I do hate it when the rich do stuff like that.

    I've never had an idol but I'm also not a musician so I shouldn't be commenting in this thread.

    Yeah i wouldnt have brought up Dr. Huxtable if I had noticed

    So changing my answer - i never idolized John Lennon but definitely started noticing his general douchebaggery after being a Beatles fan for a few years
  16. I've always been more concerned that those who I've idolized hated me. I don't really hate anyone, but also I don't particularly idolize anyone. Nobody's perfect. But you mean like if I really thought Eddie Vedder was cool and then ended up not liking him at all. I thought that was happening, but I realized something. Ed is cool. :)

    "Hate" is a strong word but Alex Grey was my favorite artist for awhile and I even liked his book The Mission of Art. I went to an event for Bicycle Day / 420 where he was doing a live painting and he greeted several people afterwards. I tried to briefly greet him but he brushed me off and I lost a little respect for him after that.
  19. 1982 I thought Michael Jackson was like the 2nd coming of Jesus, 2nd son of Krypton, above us mere mortals.

    ...and then, well you know how that goes
