* For Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart, this was an UnbuiltTrope. He lived in relative luxury on a generous royal commission, but his lavish lifestyle and alcohol and drug use kept him in poverty, and he died young. While his music was well-known in his own time, much of it was considered incomprehensible by his benefactors and audiences alike.

* Zal of the ''QuantumGravity'' series is an [[ElvishPresley elf rock star]], though one of the points he likes to make is that he does not limit himself to rock music, because every genre can be good. Incidentally, [[spoiler: becoming a rock star is all part of his plan to make "a lot of people free," as Malachi puts it. It's weird, but it works.]]

* TheWho are real-life examples of four different garden-variety rock-star stereotypes: the MemeticSexGod (Roger Daltrey), the hotel-wrecking, drug-running madman (Keith Moon), the tortured artist trying to keep his head and his band together (Pete Townshend), and TheQuietOne who's nevertheless NotSoAboveItAll (John Entwistle). It could be argued that any example of this trope will fall under one or more of these categories.

* Cole Saint Clair of ''WolvesOfMercyFallsSeries'', former lead singer of NARKOTIKA, an in universe popular rock band. He's loud and abrasive, and utterly charmed by himself. Flashbacks make it clear he had that "rolling in girls and money" thing down pat.
