Things you didn't know?

The Beatles purposely pronounce "Sie Liebt Dich," the German version of "She Loves You," incorrectly. This essentially makes the song

 "She Loves Dick."

Bruce Springsteen’s early albums were not big sellers, but his songwriting was well-regarded in musicianly circles. Manfred Mann’s Earth Band had hits with ‘Blinded By The Light’, and ‘Spirit In The Night’, while David Bowie recorded two songs: ‘It’s Hard To Be A Saint In The City’ and ‘Growing Up’, after seeing Bruce play live in New York in 1972.

The man standing on the pavement in the background on The Beatles 'Abbey Road' album sleeve is Paul Cole, an American tourist who was unaware that he was being photographed until he saw the album cover months later

For the past 30 years, Iron Maiden have been supported by their famous mascot ‘Eddie’, who has appeared on almost all of their album and single covers, as well as in their live shows.

David Lee Roth's uncle, Manny Roth, owned the New York establishment Cafe Wha? in the early 1960s, where the likes of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and The Velvet Underground all hung out.

During a gig by David Bowie on his Ziggy Stardust tour in Glasgow Scotland, 6 fans, who arrived at the venue in wheel chairs, amazingly sprang to their feet as David and group took to the stage!

The Supremes became the first all girl group to have a UK No.1 single when 'Baby Love' went to the top of the charts.

'The Twist' by Chubby Checker is the only song to go to number 1 on the US singles charts twice. Once in 1960 and again in 1962.
