It’s very subtle, but whenever The Clash performed the song “The Guns of Brixton”, Paul Simonon would switch instruments with Joe Strummer (Simonon on rhythm guitar and Strummer on bass) because Simonon was unable to play the bassline whilst singing lead vocals at the same time.
On February 15, 2016 Lady Gaga performed a medley of David Bowie hits in full Bowie make-up and costumes at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards. Everyone should instead focus their attention to this ridiculous 1976 performance by Donny Osmond covering Bowie’s “Fame” on the TV show “Donny & Marie”.
This is most likely the most famous photo of Led Zeppelin. It was taken by photographer Bob Gruen shortly after Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham exit their airplane “The Starship” in New York 1973.
Lemmy of Motörhead was featured as a limousine driver in the Foo Fighters 2011 music video for the song “White Limo”. Even though the video show Lemmy driving the limo, he actually needed to use a stunt driver (Wiley Hodgden) because he in fact had never had a drivers license.
Released in 1974, “Pussy Cats” is the tenth album by Harry Nilsson. It was produced by John Lennon during his infamous 18-month “Lost Weekend” period in Los Angeles. The album cover even had a hidden “inside joke” message on the album cover. Do you see the hidden message under the table???
After the 2016 Grammy Awards Paul McCartney of The Beatles & Wings, Beck and Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters went to a post Grammy Awards party hosted by rapper named Tyga Jenner-Kardashian at the Argyle in Hollywood, California. They were denied entrance because it was a VIP only party.
The Kurt Cobain Urinal Photobomb!!! Most likely taken in 1989, this Nirvana “Bleach” era photo of Cobain taking a leak and still photobombing Jonathan Poneman (the co-founder of Sub Pop) and Matt Lukin of Mudhoney is an instant classic.
In 1993, Nirvana filmed their award winning video for the release of the “Heart Shaped Box” single. At the time, the little girl in the video was rumored to be Cobain’s younger half-sister from his mom’s side named Breanne (Brieann) O’Connor.
Released on November 4, 1981 “Mob Rules” is the tenth studio album by Black Sabbath. It was the second album to feature lead vocalist Ronnie James Dio after Ozzy Osbourne was kicked out of the band. Some fans claim the name “Ozzy” or even “Kill Ozzy” was spelled out hidden on the album cover.
