Let's spread some musical misinformation

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by pklima, Sep 26, 2013.

  1. Any number of rock stars have adopted the "caped" look over the years - from Elvis to Rick Wakeman.

    Few realize that all of them stole that look from Rick "Nature Boy" Flair, a professional wrestler.

    80s hair metal bands, of course, took their styling cues from Hulk Hogan.

  4. Bass players never cry but they do leak a bit after a few beers.... Drummers on the other hand cry if you tell them their sticks are bent.

    Ice-T secretly performed the raps on C+C Music Factory's biggest hits. He used an alias so as not to lose his gangsta cred(ibility) with fans of his previous material.

  7. The successful formula spawned many spin-offs, including C+W Music Factory; best known for Gonna Make You Step (Everybody Line Dance Now) and C+P Music Factory; a software company that simplifies the production of lyric sheets for Blues songs.

    Want to avoid awkward string crossing? Put your bass on an elasticated strap and just move the bass up and down. Your hands can remain in one position at all times.
  9. Ice-T lost his street cred when he did an insurance commercial...*

    * technically, this is misinformation as he lost his street cred when he starred an a network TV show.

    Not 100%! It's actually true that the Hulkster and I had a short conversation. Must have been May 2003, in a hotel at LAX.

  15. According to Wikipedia, Steve Harris needed depping so he could play Eugene Young in The Practice. Hulk agreed to the job despite his preference for twin soapbar active basses and aversion to Rotosound flatwounds. However, what was meant to be just a pilot episode stretched to eight seasons during which Hogan was dragging the band into dangerously avant-garde jazz territory. When Harris heard the next album was to be titled Bring Your Daughter to the Freeform Improv Session he quit acting and resumed his rightful place.
