Are there music related urban legends?

    No I am not talking about stuff like the amount of drugs Keith Richards did or the Rod Stewart thing (mod edit: keep it kid friendly)

    Like the musician's creepypasta? Stories about haunted gear or equipment, strange things happening during rehearsals or sets, mysteries unknown to this day. things like your fuzz pedal picking up an odd signal from a number station broadcasting an eerie message.

    Has anyone ever heard off stuff like that? Has anything like that happened to you?

    Well, there's the one about the band in the studio that had a member die from "the brown note".

    Gloomy Sunday is a Hungarian suicide song.
    Urban legend: many people committed suicide after listening to that song.

    A friend of mine found the tab online, played four measures and was hospitalized.

    Sinnead O'Connor, Bjork - have a rendition of that song.

    Though I listen to that song (Bjork, Sinnead version) im still alive. Heheh. Maybe the classic original have an effect but i cant find it.

    Yeah, some Rickenbacker that made all bass players who played it die or something?

    Now I think Rics are definitely overpriced.

    Let's not forget the spontaneous human combustion of the Spinal Tap drummer.

    How about the one where Billy Ray Cyrus spawns a daughter with a successful music career.

    There's a bunch of lore about goings-on in the Aleister Crowley house that Jimmy Page bought.
