List of people left alive who are cool?
Sam HillPosted 2 months ago
If non-alive people like Steve McQueen are allowed, I’m nominating Leonard Cheshire. Proper dude.Posted 2 months ago

Clarkson? FFs. I can’t open this thread anymore. It’s so utterly uncool, it’s annoying me.Posted 2 months ago
I’m a big fan of Kyuss and QOTSA but Homme comes across as an arrogant, egotistical prick at the best of times.
What’s left of the Beastie Boys
Neil Fallon from Clutch
and most of all Jimmy Cliff.
In my mind you can’t be that cool if you’re a full on pop star or celebrity. Cool people are outsiders for the most part. At least in my opinion.Posted 2 months ago
Shit, has no one mentioned Patti Smith yet? She practically invented the word.
A bit younger:
AOC (hell, and the rest of the Squad)
And the Linda Linda’s (all four of them).
+1 for Peej & Björk ❤️Posted 2 months ago
I’m nominating Leonard Cheshire. Proper dude.
That is a very good call. A hero in two ways – his war service then his dedication to providing care for the elderly and disanbledPosted 2 months ago
If you lot have heard of them they ain’t cool.Posted 2 months ago
Jeremy CorbynPosted 2 months ago
I don’t think he has been mentioned yet, but I would nominate Alex Honnold. As well as his fantastic climbing feats, I have seen him in a couple of interviews and he just seams a quite unassuming quiet guy who loves climbing. Seams to be the type of guy who would help and advise less experienced climbers.
Even if he wasn’t so sucsesful he would still be living the van life in Yosemite doing what he loves, which if he was just a bang average climber could be rather sad. Which leads to the question, is there a thin line between cool and tragic wannabe.Posted 2 months ago

I’ll add in Polly Harvey and Bjork (even though I don’t understand Bjork’s more recent work… but I’m putting that down to my own lack of coolness, not hers).Posted 1 month ago
Ahh… cletus & fasthaggis got there before me.
Richard D James then.Posted 1 month ago
