I thought the band Steely Dan was called that because the leader was named Dan. Until one day my parents were talking about the band and said they didn't know what the singer's name was and I said "isn't it Dan" Me very embarrassed parents then explained what a Steely Dan was ..

Growing up, my mother was a big Alice Cooper fan. I (sort of) listened to some of the songs, but i never knew what Alice looked like. I used to imagine him looking like Alice from "Alice in Wonderland"...Well, it brings about pretty funny mental images.

I used to think that 'gay' just meant happy and when the teacher asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I replied 'gay' when the teacher asked me what I meant by that I said 'Gay, just like Elton John'

When I was about 8 years old, one of my Mum's favourite singers died. She had quite a few of his records. I thought that these records would now become silent. (Don't really know why I thought this as I had worked out that when playing the records, the singer wasn't actually in the record player).

My Dad used to tell everyone that he taught Eric Clapton how to play guitar-"I taught him all he knew" and all the kids in my street believed him despite the fact my Dad could barley play guitar!

I used to think that the Spice Girl's first music video (I forogt what it was called) was actually them going into a random place and messing around. I lated learned it was staged.

When I was a child, maybe 6 or 7 years old, the music teacher at my elementary school showed my class a poster of an Elvis impersonator. "He dresses, acts, and sings exactly like Elvis," the teacher said.
Being a quiet kid, I though about this for several weeks, off and on, before I asked my father one day what Elvis was. "Elvis is an alien from outer space," my father told me. I was 18 years old before I realized he was joking!

I used to think that Elton John and Sir Elton John were two different people, and that the former died in 1994, and the latter had no reason to be mentioned anywhere, because as far as I could tell, all he ever did was be gay, and that wasn't notable on its own.

When I was little I used to think that Boy George was the prettiest woman I had ever seen. But I was really confused because that lady's name was Boy.

I used to think the in ears that singers wore when performing live were hearing aids because they were always standing in front of those speakers that it made them go deaf.

When I was little I was extremely afraid of Gene Simmons of KISS -- I thought of him as being a monster such as Freddy Krueger. Whenever I would see him on TV with KISS, I would wonder why the rest of the band members weren't afraid to stand by him. Also, my brother would come into my room and force me too look at his scary KISS album covers. However, once I became I teenager I began to love KISS and no longer feared the mighty Gene.

I used to think that the posters on my wall were watching me at night. I used to hide under the covers and peep out to see if any of them had moved. I wish the Kylie one did

When I was in the sixth grade my teacher told me that KISS (the rock band) gave money to Satan by burying it the ground. For a few years after that I was worried that when digging in the dirt I would break through to Hell.

When Björk's Debut album came out I saw her on MTV and believed the sparkly dots she wore below her eyes were diamond studs. I really spent some long hours pondering how one went about piercing their lower eyelids, as well as why anyone would want to in the first place!

I used to think that Britany Spears was a robot because someone said her voice was done by computer. Then I saw her on "Extra" and "ET" and even on the news so I knew that I was wrong so i said to my sister "Britany Spears is a real person!" She looked at my like I was from another planet!

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...

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".
