Have you heard the term “Rockstars” used time and time again in relation to people on the Internet, particularly in the social media scene?

You have?

Me too, and you know what, it pisses me off no end. So this is my disambiguation post to state the use is plainly wrong when applied to wannabe practitioners of user generated content.

Terribly sorry people but if you want to know what a real Rockstar is watch this video.

If you have Rockstar needs go learn to play guitar, snort some coke and practise your stage diving, oh and pick up some tattoos on the way.

In the words of Scott Weiland (he’s the singer above) “don’t attempt to stand in a man’s shoes when you haven’t walked his path”

Scott’s history

How do you feel about the phrase?
