I remember not knowing what "gay" meant and loving Elton John's music.

Since he was only one person, and a band was never mentioned, I always pictured him hopping up and down on a pogo stick, playing a small piano that hung around his neck, drums, trumpets, and whatever else. I guess that gave new meaning to the term "one man band".

I used to believe that John Lennon had been poisoned. I knew that he'd been murdered, but I thought someone had injected him with something. I was only 2 or 3 when he died, and I finally realized that I must have heard news reports that he'd been "shot." I guess as a small child, the word "shot" suggested a needle rather than a gun.

Not too long ago, I had my younger sister(who is 10) convinced that Gerard Way, singer of My Chemical Romance, was a girl. Later on she heard me talking to a friend about how I could'nt stand female singers. She was confused girl, it took a while before she'd believe me again.

My older brother would put up posters for the rock shows he was going to, and they would say thing like "Dokken, with VERY SPECIAL GUESTS." I thought the Very Special Guests were going to be some huge megastars who showed up to play a set with Dokken and blow everyone's mind. I'd assume it would make the national news the next day. Like "Ace Frehley made a surprise appearance at the Poughkeepsie Civic Center last night with Dokken!!"

But it turned out to just be the warm up band.

I used to think that the Buffalo Springfield were Tom Springfield (Dusty's brother)'s band, and that Rick Springfield was his son. I was proved wrong later!

I used to believe that the duo Hall & Oats were farmers. Why else would they name themselves "Haulin' Oats"?

I was raised Catholic. While we were driving down the road, the Bob Dylan song came on, with the lyrics, "Everybody must get stoned." The only linguistic reference I had for the word stoned was from the story in the bible where people are chucking rocks at other people. I was totally puzzled as to why everyone would have to be pelted with rocks, but figured that it must be part of growing up.

Watching Paul Simon doing his thang with the African Mumbasa band, I asked my mother (because Mother's know EVERYTHING) why he was the only white man amongst the black men.
Being a little sick of my constant questions, my mother replied "he's a !$NG albino".
I actually believe Paul Simon was an albino till the age of 14.

For a long time when I was little, I used to believe that the person singing Rod Stewart's songs was a black woman...I didn't know the name of the person, it just sounded like a black woman to me, especially "Forever Young". I was floored when I finally found out it really was a scrawny white Englishman...

When I was about 9, I learned that talent scouts were responsible for turning ordinary kids into stars. I thought they were lurking everywhere, so I used to go around all dressed up and singing, thinking that a talent scout could spot me at anytime and put me on the new Mickey Mouse show.

I used to believe The Who were named for the programme 'Doctor Who'. Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer must have thought the same because they did a sketch on 'Shooting Stars' where four incarnations of the Doctor were singing and playing 'My Generation'!

When I was young I thought that only people in Texas had heard of Michael Jackson. This of course was when Thriller came out. When I went to Florida to visit my family I was shocked to find out that he was also quite popular elsewhere.

When the Rutles programme was first screened, I thought that when they were nicknamed 'the prefab four' that it meant less than fab! Then I found out about prefabricated houses, also known as prefabs.

I used to think the band Lindisfarne was named Linda's Farm. This was around the time Paul McCartney bought a farm in Scotland!
