Musical Facts and Lore
 
I know there's all kinds of outlandish stories concerning the music industry and the artists involved, so lets hear what strange facts or stories you've come to know in your musical journey that others may not be aware of. Keeping things to the factual with sources is preferred, but if there's a factoid that's hard to find or just impossible to prove, post it up and we'll see if it can be debunked or not.

I'll start with an example:

Les Paul was Steve Miller's Godfather

Don't you diss my Beatles :nono:

I think I remember that one. There was also the story of Ozzy Osbourne biting off the head of a dove.

Lore: Bear provided acid for the Grateful Dead.
Fact: It wasn't some wild bear loose in a forest that cooked the LSD, but a wild cat named Owsley Stanley.

It was a guy named Bear of course. God knows what the Dead was into in those days.

Lore: There was the rumor that Mama Cass Elliot died from choking on a ham sandwich.
Fact: They never could prove who choked Mama Cass while she was standing on a ham sandwich.

Actually, Cass simply died of a heart attack. Whatever became of the ham sandwich, we'll never know.

Lore: He was Data's brother.
Fact: Lore was a bit of a jerk.

Don't know about this one. Okay, you can beam me up now, Scotty.
