Betcha Didn't Know...

When you come across a delicious little trivia truffle that has to do with music, please post it here. I'll start:

The race horse Zenyatta is named after the Police album Zenyatta Mondatta. She's owned by Jerry Moss of A&M Records, who signed The Police.

Interesting how my horse, "No Holds Barred" raced against "Zenyatta" (owned by my friend, Jerry Moss)!...lol

We are mere horse raisers but our love for beautiful mares (wanting stallions) still rings true, especially at the starting line!

The only music song that I can come up with coinciding with this is... and I know, I've played it before . . . maybe

White Horse ~ Wonderland Avenue

Rod Stewart was the original lead singer of the Jeff Beck Group. However, when the band was scheduled to appear at Woodstock he quit on the eve of the show due to the fact that his best friend Ron Wood, who was playing bass at the time, was kicked out.

Lindsay Buckingham and the photographer guilted Stevie Nicks into posing nude on the cover of their debut album for "Buckingham Nicks." Stevie says that if you look close enough at the album cover you can see she's crying.

Smokey Robinson loathes "Tears of a Clown."

Stevie Nicks' white dress on the cover of "Bella Donna" was an exact opposite replica to the black dress she wore for the cover of "Rumours."

The "Gibson Girl" hairdo (loose bun) that she used to wear in Fleetwood Mac's early days onstage was held together by a single bobby pin, and it took her exactly 30 seconds to gather up all that hair and put it up into that perfect "messy" look... and it never once fell out during any stage performance.

When the Beatles famous Butcher Cover was recalled in America, Columbia Records put the new covers on top of the old ones. A few record stores figured out that you could steam them off and reveal the bloody dolls, which allowed them to sell them for 6 bucks instead of 3. There are probably a bunch of copies of Yesterday and Today floating around with a hidden butcher cover.

The instructions I saw said to carefully steam it - like how you open a letter without tearing it.

If you try, be sure to record it - the resulting YouTube video would get killer hits. :)

Less than a month after Jim Morrison was arrested in Miami on charges of indecent exposure (for which he would later be convicted and then pardoned), 30,000 people attended a "Rally for Decency" at the Orange Bowl, featuring The Lettermen and Anita Bryant. President Nixon sent a letter to one of the organizers thanking him for his efforts.

Darrell Lance Abbott, metal guitarist, known as "Dimebag Darrell, a founding member of the bands Pantera and Damageplan and who was shot to death on stage on 12/8/2004, carried his passions to the grave.

A devoted fan of Black Sabbath and KISS, he had a tattoo of Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley on his chest, which Frehley once autographed for him.

He then had the autograph tattooed in place on his chest.

Having asked for a copy of Eddie Van Halen's "Bumblebee" guitar (which is pictured on the back cover of the album Van Halen II), before his death, the actual guitar was buried along with Darrell in a Kiss Kasket (an actual casket that was marketed and licensed by the band, Kiss) because he had made it known that he wanted to be buried in one of these caskets.
