We expect rock stars to lay in beds covered in money while drinking insanely pricey liquor and, umm, doing some other stuff. But we forget about the poor, poor souls—agents, concert promoters, record producers—who depend on them to be on time...and coherent. Cracked presents the 7 rock stars who are really big headaches:

  1. Liam and Noel Gallagher: The two halves of Oasis have a penchant for beating on each other. In one of many examples, Liam suggested Noel's wife was two-timing him—so Noel headbutted his brother. Try getting them to play nice at a photo shoot.

  1. DMX: The rapper collects criminal charges (assault, animal cruelty, hijacking a car) the way your grandpa collects stamps. His manager once mysteriously got shot in the foot...
  2. Keith Moon: Sure, The Who's drummer liked to chuck TVs out of hotel windows. But his one true love was blowing up toilets using everything from cherry bombs to M-80s.
  3. Eric Clapton, circa 1971: In those days, the singer was downing so much booze and doing so many drugs that he'd wander off the stage mid-set, and have to be coaxed back on.
