Music Quotes and Quirks

Post by Scrappy on Tue Dec 10, 2013 11:39 am

There would be a great deal of stories we have heard about Musos
Some would be factual, some fictitious , some exaggerated
Being able to differentiate between fact and fiction is a task
We can only go with what we have heard read and seen

ELVIS PRESLEY
Had a twin brother Jesse that died at birth
35 Minutes later in the year of '35 Elvis was born
Who knows how the course of music history becomes if Jesse survived or Elvis didnt

EQUALS
Had a hit song in 1966 called Baby Come Back
I'm not sure if this have ever been documented [apart form me]
At the tail end the following lyrics can be heard in the background to sound like
' Root boy root boy."
Then as the song tails off and the volume decreases , if you turn up your record player you can hear something that sounds very much like
' I just keep on rooting all night long ."

BILL WYMAN [Rolling Stones]
Was 47 when he knew of 13 year old Mandy Smith
Bill married Mandy 6 years later[it lasted about a year]
Just after that Bill's 30 year old son Stephen married Mandy's 46 year old mother

What does this mean?
Stephen is a step father to his previous stepmother

Gets better
Imagine if Bill and Mandy were still unified in marriage
The Stephen would have been his fathers father in law and his own grandpa

SPANISH GUITARS

Before WW1
The strings for Spanish acoustic guitars were originally made from the intestines of sheep

During WW2
The strings had to be replaced by nylon
Why
?
Because all sheep's guts were used to make surgical threads for wounded soldiers

JOHNNY CASH
Johnny Cash's estate was asked by a company if they could use the name Ring Of Fire
The company wanted to use the title on an advertisment for Haemorrhoid cream

Both yukky

DAVID BOWIE
Was born David Jones
Changed his surname to Bowie as there was another David Jones
That other one is not the department store, but in fact Davy Jones of The Monkees fame

Davy Jones who passed away in the last year or so was also an apprentice jockey who even rode in races after his 'Monkee' career

BUDDY HOLLY
This is written on the back of The Buddy Holly Story Album

*It was flying that gave him the greatest sense of SATISFACTION , partly because overland journeys made him impatient , and he was looking forward to the day when he could obtain a licence and learn to fly his own aircraft.*

That's chilling
Buddy died on 3/3/1959 , in a plane crash

FRANCIS DRAKE
The English sea navigator
It is said in wikipedia that Buddy Holly is a descendant of Francis Drake
Drake was 23 when he made his first voyage to America , the same age Buddy Holly died at

A few of us on this site are probably remnants from the sixties and I am one of them, I am a huge fan of that era and into the seventies and even a little of the eighties.

One song that was recorded by "The Small Faces" in 1968 and was a huge hit for them was "Tin Soldier" If listened very carefully right near the end you will hear the words "Get Fu@#ed". It is said while the song is fading out.

DAVID BOWIE
The song Suffragette City
In the last part of the song is THAT classic lyric
* Wham bam thank you maam.*

Hopefully David was not referring to George Michael ...

I just want to keep on living because each day is better

I never said I was a genius
or a legend in my own time
If I did that , then I'd have to live up to it.

OLIVIA NEWTON JOHN

Not only a good singer but a good looker
This is a yarn from ONJ early daze

She was 15 when she won a talent contest ,and won a trip to England
ONJ didn't want to leave her boyfriend or home, but was pushed by her mum to go
She made the trip when she turned 18
Had a double act with a guy named Pat
They did a gig with Cliff Richard and the Shadows
" Cliff heard my voice and he wanted Pat and I to sing with him on one of his B sides. That's kind of how my career started."

ONJ dated a guy from the Shadows who was mates with Sir Paul Mccartney
She ended up at Sir Paul's house
Paul says " Iv'e just written this song."
He jammed up a tune , that being the splendid hit Lady Madonna
" When I look back, I know its amazing that I was there when he wrote that song."

The golden gal ends up having a wonderful career as a singer and actress

My favorite 3 Olivia songs
1. Have You Ever Been Mellow
2 Your'e The One That I Want
3 Please Mister Please

I have to admit I was a bit keen on ONJ in those early days.

...cue jokes about age... Smile

(can't get the smilies to open)?

MADONNA

Her first jobs included working at Burger King and Mcdonalds
" I was so poor I scavenged in the dustbins after work for thrown out burgers."
" I posed for nude photos too and got paid $10 an hour compared to $1-50 at Burger King, I kept saying, it's for art ."

DUANE EDDY
" A lot of people thought rock and roll was a fad
They thought why should we give money to these idiot kids ...
There'd be these big sacks of mail for me that they'd put in the back room of the record company , and I never knew about it
They'd go through it , or burn it, and it was my mail
I'd get bags and bags of fan mail
I guess they didn't want me to see if for fear that I'd start thinking I was a big star."


Duane Eddy
The master of twangggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg guitarism

ROY ORBISON

" I started using sunglasses in Alabama
I was going to do a show with Patsy Cline and Bobby Vee, and I left my clear glasses on the plane.
I only had sunshades , and I was quite embarrassed to go on stage with them , but I did it."
