2) There was only one member of ZZ Top who didn't have a beard and he played drums. What's his last name? Wait for it...Beard. He is also a VERY successful Avocado farmer who has as one of his clients, Chipotle.
3) The amazing Dolly Parton wrote two number one hits on the same day. They are: "Jolene," and "I Will Always Love You."
4) As popular as Bruce Springsteen is, he never had a number one hit. He should have, but he didn't.
5) Freddie Mercury, from the band Queen, had four extra teeth. He didn't want to have them pulled because they helped create the unique sound/tone that he had.
6) Paul Schaffer was the leader of the band for David Letterman. What many people don't know, is that he co-wrote the song: "It's Raining Men," with another male song writer.
7) Elvis Pressley recorded around 600 songs in his career and he didn't write a single one of them.
8) The group "Toto," who produced the hit song "Africa," among others, was the studio band for Michael Jackson's "Thriller," album.
9) It wasn't caught for a few decades, but on the recording of "Hey, Jude," John Lennon said: "F***king Hell," because the feedback on his headset kept going in and out. It was very faint, but it's there. It took an improvement in sound technology for the words to come out.
10) Bon Jovi's first professional recording was on a Star Wars Christmas album.
11) Van Halen would require M&M's be provided in their rooms or trailers and that all brown ones were to be removed. When asked about this years later, they said they didn't do it for the M&M's, it was just a great way to see whether they could trust the staff to pay attention to details.
12) I love the song: "Smells Like Teen Spirit," by Kurt Cobain. Ironically, he got the name from a new deodorant at the time that was marketed to teenage girls and it was called Teen Spirit Pink Crush. Of course he would've lost the "cool," factor if word got out that the title of the song came from a deodorant.
13) The singing group who came up with the song: "I'm Walking on Sunshine," has been able to make a living off of it for around 35 years. The reason being, is that the four band members split all royalties and the song ended up on so many commercials, television shows, movies, etc., that the money kept pouring in.
