A very famous musician was called amiable for not being arrogant like most others with even half his talent. It always admired him for that and did not understand until years later why he said on a radio show that he was not as talented as some lesser known jazz musicians. I appreciated him all the more when I learned first hand how right he was.
Others such as drum great Buddy Rich, who was considered the greatest drummer of his time and even still, but he was also hated because of his extreme arrogance. It did not help him professionally to be that way, and even hurt him as a person.
Both are great famous musicians, but each has his way and we must understand that they cannot always be what we think they should.
They are two sides of a coin, but as a great Orthodox priest once told me , just be yourself.
