Monday Monday.......

It's Musical Monday everybody!! How about a little Rock and Roll Trivia to start off the week?

B.B. King's first name is Riley. During his early years in Memphis, he was given the nickname of
" The Beale Street Blues Boy ". It was later shortened to "Blues Boy", and finally abbreviated to B.B.

The lyrics for The Byrds big hit, "Turn! Turn! Turn!", were taken from the Book of Ecclesiastes!

Dr. John, The Night Tripper, must have been a beautiful baby. His baby face once graced the cover of the Ivory Snow box.
( ...additional trivia. The first 2 Big Porn Stars of the 70's were of course Linda Lovelace, and Marylin" Behind the Green Door" Chambers...Marylin was also an Ivory Snow box girl. Only she was a wholesome Mom! )

Woodstock was definately a life or death situation for some of the 400,ooo+ attendee's. During the week-end event, there were 3 deaths, 2 births, and 4 miscarriages!!

One of THE greatest Rock Icons, And Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Chuck Berry.....had his only #1 hit in 1972 when he was well past his prime! The novelty tune..."My Ding-a-Ling"....

Elvis Presley allegedly had an aversion to soap and water. He would only give himself sponge baths without fully immersing himself. Fortunately for his friends, he took a liking to BRUT cologne!

Chubby Checker was given his stage name by the wife of Dick Clark...She thought he looked a little like Fats Domino...

Alice Cooper's pet Boa Constrictor that used to appear on-stage with him, was named Yvonne!

Three Dog Night got their unusual name from the Australian Aborigines. To ward off the cold night air they would curl up with their dogs for warmth....The chillier the night, the more dogs!

Buddy Holley and the Crickets were the very 1st white performers to appear at Harlems famed
Apollo Theater ( August 16, 1957 )

The last Beatle Album, " Abbey Road ", had a song that segued out of "Carry That Weight", and was essentially the last song on their last album, the song?....."The End"!

The Chipmunks got their name from the Head Honchos at Liberty Records...Alvin Bennett, Theodore Keep, and Simon Waronker!!

......And finally, the acoustics of bathroom tiles resonate to bass and baritone voices, but NOT soprano. This may help explain why it seems that there are a disproportionate number of men shower-singers!!...Hope you had a glorious week-end and Mother's Day.... Peace

Breazy said...

These are pretty cool! I knew some births took place at Woodstock but I didn't know there were 2 births and 4 miscarriages, thanks for the heads up!

I have a dumb question...

up there in the little box where it says "Leave your comment" I am seeing that starting out as a taupish gray color and fading into pink then eventually yellow. I am also seeing pink around the entire page that holds comments and the box. Are you seeing those colors as well? I am not sure if I it is just me or if Blogger has changed some colors around!

Hope you have a good day!

Breazy said...

LOL! In my comment I meant that I knew some "Deaths" took place not births..goodness gracious..my mind these days..actually I think my fingers are going to fast!

Serena Joy said...

Cool post, great trivia bits. I had no idea about some of that stuff.

G-Man said...

Good Morning to you Michelle..xoxox


Breazy, I have no sound card OR color on my home PC, and I can't blog at work, so who knows?

Good Morning Serena Joy.
You're not so bad in the trivia dept. yourself!

Breazy said...

Okay thanks G-man! I will have to ask someone else because I think blogger has done some changes..or maybe it is just me..heehee!

OK Queenie....
Compose a story with a plot and a central character, and limit it to 55 words...ON THE DOT!!
Voila!!..BTW, the rules are very loosely interpreted. And when you are posted, you should invite Susie, The Barefoot Mistress, to come read it...

G-Man said...

Well JJ it's not really that bad!! The avatar pics are in color, it's just the blog backgrounds.

javajazz said...

tsduff said...

Cool. Do you know how long I've wondered about where 3 Dog Night got their name? Now I can go to sleep at night :-D

jillie said...

You know there are a lot of people that die on the "pot". One of the symptoms of heart problems or heart attack is the feeling of constipation....

You are too funny g-man and I am going to MISS you!!!!!!!!!!!!!
