Proof that showers don't only serve to sing: while having mine today, I wondered: are there last.fm members who are music superstars ?

I mean, while browing last.fm, I often encounter users who are part or a band or solo musicians, and they often publicize it on their profile blurb, like recently deanchristesen (who even uploaded The Supreme Quartet's tracks, cool, they deserve a try). But - pardon me if you're one of those - I was thinking about more famous people - as of today at least. ;) Maybe Bono is reading this journal, for example ? Or perhaps Thom Yorke is a forum moderator ? Or take Peter Gabriel: he was a pioneer with sequencers IIRC, he must be quite geeky, and maybe he listens to music on his high-end iPod, or on his personal computer with some last.fm plugin turned on ? So what's his account ? I'd love to know what theses famous stars listen to.

Actually, I happen to think at least one is hiding in the last.fm staff. Perhaps Russ is actually Angus Young ? Or mustaqila Mick Jagger ? So how's the new album going, muz ? ;)

[ Note: After having seen they added the staff's pics on the aforementioned page, I think these last 2 assumptions are definitely wrong. :) ]

    A superstar wouldn't have time to run last.fm, so the staff is obviously people whose most hectic days as performing musicians are over. Judging from the tiny pictures: mustaqila is Nuno Bettencourt from Extreme. (photo is from the early 90s when he had long hair). Or maybe he's the guy from E-type, here? muesli is Richard Wright from Pink Floyd, see here. RJ... well, he's a pretty boy so he's one of those American Idol winners. I can't remember their actual names but I guess it doesn't matter. RNR is what Roy Orbison actually looks like without sunglasses. I don't know about Russ, he looks like he's from one of those indie rock bands I know little about. Or then he's one of those techno stars from the early 90s.

    Oops, mustaqila is obviously Slash. How could I have missed that? Even his posture in the picture is similar. Add a cigarette, top hat and a bottle of Jack Daniels and it's obvious. Has anybody ever seen mustaqila and Slash in the same place? :D And yet he has time for last.fm forums! Pretty impressive. Little do last.fm users know that while he's typing answers with his toes, he's using his fingers to play the guitar for the rest of the staff.

    Oh sh*t, I forgot I had a show in the US soon... I might not be able to be here, sorry: I have last.fm groups to manage, last.fm extensions to update, last.fm journal to write... Cladonio: what an hawk eye ! Good intuition...

    For the record, I am honored to be mentioned in this journal. Not quite famous, but oh well. :D It's really interesting to talk to people on here about the band they're in, and then go to the band's website and realize they're kind of a big deal. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some superstars on here.
