Why he might be annoying:

    He was a chain smoker.
    He drank heavily.
    As presenter of the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award, instead of reading the name of winner John Denver, he took out a lighter and set fire to the envelope (1975).
    He retreated into semi-retirement, saying ‘Maybe I didn't really want success all those years.'

Why he might not be annoying:

    Sam Phillips said ‘I don't want to take anything away from Elvis, but I don't think I ever recorded anybody that was better as a singer, writer and player than Charlie Rich.'
    He occupied the top three spots on the Billboard country albums chart for six weeks (1974).
    He was married to his wife Margaret Ann for 44 years until his death.
