88. Michael Stipe (1960— )
In eighth grade I had the hugest boner for Monster-era* Michael Stipe, and he’s probably at least part of the reason that to this day I fawn over significantly older men who shave their heads to hide their baldness. A friend of mine who lived in Athens, Georgia one told me that he held a door for Michael Stipe once, remembering only that his breath wasn’t so hot. I’ve actually seen him in person twice, not at R.E.M. shows (like you’d expect) but once from a car and once at a reading. He’s taller than I would have ever suspected. (He’s also possibly the single most polarizing person on this list. Three people really loved him, and three others wanted to vote him off the list completely.)
*Monster is still my favorite R.E.M. album.
