Musicians snarking on musicians

Noel Gallagher makes terrible music but gives good soundbite. He says of Jack White (above):

That’s from The 30 Harshest Musician-on-Musician Insults in History, which is doing the rounds. Ace guitarist Elliott Randall (the solo on Steely Dan’s “Reelin’ In The years” – that was him) has his own list of Musicians on Musicians, mostly from the classical world. All gems. Here is Sibelius explaining why he rarely invited musicians to his home:
[They] talk of nothing but money and jobs. Give me businessmen every time. They really are interested in music and art.
