When I was little I asked my dad why Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder wore sunglasses when they were blind. His reply was "because they don't have eyes".

I pictured empty holes in their heads where their eyeballs should be.

My mom found out what I believed when I was in my early 20's and laughed. I felt pretty stupid.

When I was about 10 or 11, I had a HUGE crush on Jon Bon Jovi. A girl in my 5th grade class had told me that he lived in the next town over. I wanted to believe her but wasn't quite sure so I sent an extremely mushy fan letter proclaiming my love to him to the address she provided me. when it got sent back to me marked "no such address" I was mad... I actually paid the girl for that address

I used to believe that the beetles were a band of beetles. I never listened to them because I thought I wouldn't understand what they were saying and it would just be rubbish. It was hilarious. My mom just kept trying to make me listen to them but I wouldn't budge. Finally she decided to play it on the radio on her cd without telling me. When it came on I said " Who is this?" and she said the beetles and I covered my ears and screamed!!

When I was a child we had a BIG console stereo. I used to believe that tiny musicians lived in there and played songs whenever mom wanted them to.

When I was young, I don't know why, but I thought concerts were an actual battle of multiple bands playing and then the audience would vote for whom they thought won the concert.

I saw Michael Jackson when he was on BBC News alot in like 2002 and when I saw the red lips and long hair I was convinced he was a woman. I would get into arguments with my mum and dad.

'SHE!'
'HE!'

When I was really young, I was convinced Michael Jackson lived in a storage room at the local 7-11. This was because the room had a small hole in the door and when I looked in, I saw several cases of Pepsi. This was around the time he was endorsing Pepsi, so I figured he lived in there.

For years I heard of singer Waylon Jennings without otherwise being aware of any such name as "Waylon". I thought they were calling him "Wailin' Jennings" and that that must be a nickname acquired because somebody charaterized his singing as wailing.

When I was younger I believed that some songs should have been by different bands.

Iron Man was by Iron Maiden and not Black Sabbath
Cars was by the Cars and not Gary Numan
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go was by the Go-Gos and not Wham

Far earlier I also believed that "I Ran" by A Flock of Seagulls was a metal song because it had distorted guitars and a solo.

I used to think that musicians were singing live in music videos and was always amazed that they sounded just like they did on the radio.

I believed for quite a long time that Marvin Gaye was blind. We had a 45 rpm record of "I heard it through the Grapevine" with him wearing dark sunglasses on the cover. Glasses were so similar to those Ray Charles wore... So i just assumed Marvin was blind too.

I used to believe Little Richard was a nickname for Ringo in The Beatles because I knew his real name was Richard Starkey and he was the shortest in the band. I thought it was cute and was pretty disappointed when I found out Little Richard was an entirely different person.

when i was around 6 or 7, i thought there was a difference between normal people dying and pop stars dying, i was sure they weren't really dead because they could still sing on the radio and such.. i probably figured their disembodied voice stayed alive forever.
