    If I were trapped in a burning car and suspected the person rescuing me of being a creep, I would most certainly demand to see his or her CNC (Certificate of Non Creepitude).

    Of course there is somewhat a difference between trapped in a burning car and sitting down to listen to music. Mnd you if the music is Stockhausen then one might make comparisons and wish for a rescuer!

    Conversely, would seeing a known creep in a burning car deform your moral values enough to not want to rescue them?

    Easy. Think of Liszt's Mephisto Waltz

    I’d say there’s probably a bit of creep in all of us.

    I know others have beat me to this point but it's because we're all immensely flawed individuals and even the greatest or most talented of our representatives have shortcomings and do awful things. As for Prokofiev, I'm glad he left us a wealth of transcendent music even if he did make Shostakovich cry (just another of the horrible things he did).
