Default 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

Here are two stories that are fairly well known but they're both so odd and involve two of the biggest names in popular music, so I can't resist mentioning them...

The Mysterious Death of Sam Cooke

The Bizarre Story of What Happened to Gram Parsons Body After He Died

There were all those rumors that the famous popstar Michael Jackson was into kids, like sexually... Have those ever been debunked?

There was the rumor that Mama Cass Elliot died from choking on a ham sandwich (Not true incidentally but was carried by the papers initially)

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Fact: The Rolling Stones are the greatest Rock n Roll band ever.

Lore: “Alice bites head off a chicken and drinks the blood.”

Don't you diss my Beatles

Lore: “Alice bites head off a chicken and drinks the blood.”
Fact: It was evolution that doomed the chicken that fateful day. Someone threw a chicken on stage and Alice Cooper not knowing it was fight-impared through years of evolution threw the bird back into the crowd and they ripped it asunder.

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.
