Sometimes creativity and eccentricity go hand-in-hand, something that’s often apparent with music types. While some may feign being weird as part of an image or persona, there are those who are truly, madly, deeply weird through-and-through 24/7.

Then there’s this tale from Brandon Gillard, a bass player who once encountered Prince.
Now that Prince has set the bar, who else belongs in this club?
