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.

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.

John Lennon was such a hero in my home that when he died, I thought that we wouldn't have to go to school because it would become a national holiday.

When I was really little I thought the singer Meatloaf invented the food meatloaf. I hated him because of that since meatloaf was my least favorite food.

Age 7 and desperate to emulate Donny Osmond's fine coiffure I cut a huge triangle out of my fringe for a middle parting. I hadn't realised that hair had to be styled and thought Donny was just lucky enough to have hair that grew that way.

When I was about 3 or 4 years old, I asked my older sister who the pretty lady on tv was... It was Michael Jackson..

I thought that since my grandpa and my dad's names are both David, than David Bowie must be my aunt's son.

When I was a kid, I was convinced that Yoko Ono was John Lennon in drag. My dad told me it was his wife and I defended my point saying that she was too ugly to be a real girl.

I used to think Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson were married. I never could figure out why they looked so much alike.

I used to believe Paul Mcartney was my father. I used to fall asleep at night just knowing that any day now he was going to show up at our house and claim me! God knows why I thought this, as I already had a father. Also, I lived in Ohio and my mom didn't even like the Beatles.

When I was about five my mother told me all about Elvis, and I remember her specifically noting that Elvis had a daughter and had died "before he even got to know her." I figured that the only reason she could be telling me this was that Elvis must be my real father! Needless to say I was disappointed to learn about Lisa-Marie some five or six years later.

My mother was American, and played a lot of music from her beloved homeland. Most often, it'd be Janis Joplin. At five years old, I had the singer's death explained to me, and I accepted it, and seemed to have moved on. Until I became convinced that she was alive, and living in our fridge. I have no idea why I believed this, but for a very long time, I was sure that Janis was alive and well, living in an English house, in a large kitchen appliance.

From when I was 4 years old up until I was about 8, I used to believe that Boy George was the prettiest lady I'd ever seen.

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.
