I Used To Believe that Paul McCartney was my grandpa. Hmmmmm....
I used to believe there were two Axl Rose(s) when I was about ten. This was prompted by what I heard as two distictly different but similar enough voices in the song "Sweet Child o' mine". I now understand that they were overdubs! Well, this belief was furthered by the video for the song which Axl constantly goes from being shot in black and white to being shot in color. The transformation of Axl 1 into Axl 2 is most apparent in the "where do we go" part of the video where his voice not only changes, but he has from what I remember, the shakes, as well as an incredible hulk type look on his face as he changes once again from black & white to color along with an evident voice character change....
wouldn't have been great to have to Axl's?
don't let me get started with my nine year old interpretation to the lyrics of "Paradise City"...
Once, when I was about 8, I was in my local Woolworths and saw an album chart, in which many of the albums were by "Various". I wondered to myself why I'd never heard of Various before if they were popular enough to have that many albums in the chart at the same time.
I suppose it's the musical equivalent of the assumption that Anonymous was a prolific poet.
I used to think that my dad was the bass player for AC/DC. I don't exactly remember how I came by this belief, but I think it has something to do with the fact that my mom and I were listening to AC/DC when I asked her what band my dad was in.
When I was younger I had a habit of getting my pop stars mixed up. Elton John was head of the Beatles, Pink Floyd sang "Get this Party Started" and even though everyone else was confused, I knew Marilyn Monroe was a boy.
When i first heard of Eminem, i thought he was African American. I mean, there aren't many white rappers nowadays, now are there?
I used to believe that Elvis died from eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. My mom told me that, and I believed her for quite awhile.
when I was little, I swore that michael jackson was a girl. my mom told me he wasn't but I refused to beleive her because he had long hair.
Until recently, I didn't know who Mick Jagger was (he's an actor and film producer and does some other stuff). I always thought that his name was actually McJagger, so it was obvious to me that he must be a rapper, because they always have weird 1-word names. Good thing I never tried to start a conversation about McJagger's new rap songs...
when I first heard of Eminem I thought his name was spelt m&m.
when i was 10, i thought marilyn manson was a girl
My aunt and uncle are in a band called the Cucumbers. For some reason, I always used to get them confused with the Beatles. I never wondered why their band seemed to be so famous though no one had heard of my aunt and uncle...
one day i was reading and not paying much attention. my mum was talking about the band cold chisel wen i, misunderstanding piped up "cold chicken?, are we having a baked dinner tonight?" i have never lived it down
when i was a kid, i used to believe that celebrities are too special, thay they dont eat, dont sleep and dont use the bathroom!!!! i thought they are much perfect to do those.
The first several times that I heard of the Allman Brothers Band, I thought that it was the Almond Brothers Band.
when i was 10 i was convinced that me and joey mcintyre from new kids on the block would get married because he was only 7 years older than me.
when i was like 8 or so, they would show reruns of "the monkees" on nickelodeon. i was in love with davy jones so i looked him up in the phone book. i found a david jones and kept telling him how much of a fan i was and that i loved him. the guy threatened the cops. i didnt realize that davy jones could possibly live somewhere else and not in my small town in Texas.
i honestly used to think there were two michael jacksons, one who was a young black boy and another who was an older white guy.
Until a few days ago I thought the phrase "prima donna" was really "pre-madonna" as in a young girl who was likely to follow in Madonna's footsteps.
I believed that my Dad's friend Phil and Bruce Springsteen were the same person, because they both had sort of bushy hair and wore denim sometimes. It didn't matter than Phil was Cornish.
