Top 10 Surprising Myths In Music History
The Top Ten
This rumor is actually still argued today. Rumor has it, Paul was actually killed in a car accident and The Beatles found an exact look alike. Umm... How could they find one so quick? Not to mention we would probably witness the tragedy. This rumor should be put to rest. - MontyPython
Even back in the 60's, nobody really believed this.
My father actully remembered this in the 60s, and he actully believed it. When I try to prove him wrong, he would say "This is True! " Until he looked it up on wikipedia. - Mumbizz01
In this sweet myth, rumor has it that photographers had spotted Mick Jagger eating a Mars Bar out of Marianne Faithful's... Opening, or fanny, or... Whatever. Keith Richards clearly stated it wasn't true. - MontyPython
Thank god Brian Jones didn't hear about this. He'd be laughing his a** off. - MontyPython
Also known as the "Shark Episode", people say that the members of the iconic rock band, Led Zeppelin, we're putting pieces of a mud shark in a woman's fanny against her will. One musician claimed he caught it on footage. But, it was false. The rock band's manager had done the dirty deed, BUT, with a red snapper instead. - MontyPython
In this rumor, it states that a woman, (David Bowie's ex I believe.. ) caught Mick Jagger and David Bowie having sex with each other. It's actually still argued today. Will we know? I believe it's a myth but whatever. - MontyPython
Have you seen they're music video together? And the photos of Jagger leaning against Bowie? Not to mention they constantly were spotted together without their wives. I would bet $100000 they had sex.
I honestly wouldn't put it past David. Mick… I dunno, but it's possible. - PetSounds
It said that Michael Jackson, the famous pop singer and dancer, had wanted to buy the dis-formed skull of John Merrick, a scientist with a strange appearance but a kind heart who died over 100 years ago. It says that Mj would pay over 100,000 dollars. But, even if this rumor was true, the elephant man's skull is not for sale. - MontyPython
This rumor is completely disgusting. It says that Rod Stewart, (Vocals to the song 'Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? ') had his way with a bunch of Navy Seals, drinking their... You know... Semen. And after that, he had to get his stomach pumped to rid of all the access fluid. It wasn't true (duh). - MontyPython
Ah yes. I've bet you've heard this one. Elvis Presley had died in 1977 at the young age of 42. But fans just couldn't let him go now could they? They had claimed they saw him walking down Main Street, or at the store! - MontyPython
In the opening for Tree House of Horror IV, you see a grave stone that says:
DEAL WITH IT
Gene Simmons is known for his tongue waggling in the band KISS. You know, the face painted freaks? Haha just kidding, I like KISS. I'm a fan of them. But anyway, people looked at Simmons' tongue, and claimed that the devil cursed him with a cow's tongue. It was then proven though, that a cow's tongue is a hell of a lot bigger than Simmons' tongue. - MontyPython
Robert Johnson, a member of the '27 Club', was found dead. He had been poisoned. But some people cried out that he sold his soul to the devil. And surprisingly, they had pretty good reasons. But then again, how could the devil poison someone? - MontyPython
A stupid myth. Its just fantasies, deal with the devil. - zxm
In 1994, Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of the grunge band Nirvana (Smells Like Teen Spirit), was found dead with a gunshot wound through his head. It was claimed that he committed suicide, considering there was a death not beside him. "Or was it? " Many Nirvana/Kurt Cobain fans called out. They then began to point fingers at Courtney Love. There was not enough evidence though, so it's most likely Kurt killed himself. He was depressed. - MontyPython
This was a really stupid one with no foundation in reality, and was simply one of the first experiments in manipulation using social media.
