This is just a bit of fun so don't think there are any prizes!! We will be adding more over time.
In the 1960s The Beatles best selling single She Loves You sold 20 copies.
Okay that's complete fiction it actually sold 1.89 million copies with the band also dominating the album charts. Interesting though the second most popular album of the 60s was The Sound of Music soundtrack
...what are us brits like?!
Malcolm McLaren on manufacturing the Sex Pistols nicked Richard Hell's hairdo fact or fiction?
Absolute fact!! Richard (using a mixture of vaseline and talc to promote his spikes) actually had more than his coif stolen indeed his whole image/style was uplifted by McLaren who then made a pretty penny from it..
Shakespeare invented punk!!
Well maybe he didn't but he did use the word punk in several of his plays. The word at the time was used as a slang word for a sex worker before being emasculated in the 18th century to embrace ruffians and rogues.
Brian Jones, the true talent of The Rolling Stones, used the pseudonym Elmo Lewis. Yes he did!! He chose the name in reference to his idol Elmore James, an American blues guitarist, who himself was given the moniker King of the Slide Guitar.
