More Things You Didn't Know About Rock & Roll....

Its a busy day here today so I'm just spitting out obscure Rock & Roll facts that you may or may not have known about.... 

In the 50's, Little Richard kicked Jimi Hendrix out of his band for stealing the spotlight:Jimi wouldn't wear the uniform Richard had imposed (since he wanted all the attention to his figure) and the audience was delighted with his guitarist's eccentric way of dressing.

-Two songs were recorded by the BeatlesBob Dylan, and Elvis: "That's Alright, Mama" and "Yesterday".

-Mason the only member to play on every Pink Floyd album.

-Cass Elliot (Mama Cass of The Mamas & Papas) and Keith Moon of The Who that died in the apartment of the same singer/songwriter: Harry Nilsson.

- In the Beatles' "A Day In The Life," there's a bit in the orchestral score where the musicians were told "start on the lowest note your instrument can play, and gradually work your way up to the highest note your instrument can play." 

-Stevie Ray Vaughan was the guitarist on David Bowie's "Let's Dance" album 

And there are just some more facts for you to think about today.....
