    If non-alive people like Steve McQueen are allowed, I’m nominating Leonard Cheshire. Proper dude.

    Clarkson? FFs. I can’t open this thread anymore. It’s so utterly uncool, it’s annoying me.

    Josh Homme

    I’m a big fan of Kyuss and QOTSA but Homme comes across as an arrogant, egotistical prick at the best of times.

    Xavier Rudd
    Rodney Mullen
    What’s left of the Beastie Boys
    Andy Cooper
    Neil Fallon from Clutch
    Black Pumas
    Frazey Ford
    Brant Bjork
    Keanu Reeves
    Drew Barrymore
    Dope Lemon
    Samara Weaving
    Ben Howard
    Sturgill Simpson
    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.

    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 disanbled

    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.

    and most of all Jimmy Cliff

    Hell yes!

    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).

    I can’t believe after 4 pages no one has mentioned Billy Gibbons.  Like Duncan says, last week we’d have had Dusty too, but sadly no more.
