The first commercial CD pressed in the United States was Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A.

The iconic whistle in “(Sittin’ on) the Dock of the Bay” was improvised when Otis Redding forgot what he was supposed to sing during the outro.

Barry Manilow’s “I Write the Songs” was written by … someone else (on-again/off-again Beach Boy Bruce Johnston, to be exact).

Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” was the most-requested 
radio song of the ’70s. Yet singer/
lyricist Robert Plant once pledged $1,000 to a public radio station that promised to never play it again. (“I’ve heard it before,” he later said.)
giggle

The dude in Aerosmith’s “Dude (Looks like a Lady)” is Mötley Crüe frontman Vince Neil, whose long blond locks Aerosmith mistook for 
a woman’s at a bar one night.

The chord that starts Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” is a tritone—known 
as the devil’s interval and banned from some Renaissance church 
music for sounding too evil. cheersrock

The night of Jimi's first gig, Jeff Beck was coming out of the club and outside he ran into Eric Clapton and Pete Townshend. With a frightened expression he told them "I think we're in trouble here!". giggle

The solo in The Beatle's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is played by Clapton.

Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is dedicated to the band's former leader Syd Barret. Syd used to be the leader...until his schizophrenia and the LSD started to catch up with him, and he became rather insane. The band called David Gilmour, who had given Syd guitar lessons during high shool, and would cover for Syd during concerts, correcting his mistakes and filling in when he started playing along to a different tune. Syd eventually got more and more distanced of the band and David got to be the lead guitarist, but lots of the insanity themes they sing about is related to their former bandmate.

Malcom Young used to play the solos in AC/DC, until one day he told his brother "You do them...cuz they keep busy the hand I use for drinking!". rofl

He may have quit H, but continued with coca till ‘06. But I also believe he continued taking one or another opiate for “maintenance “ all these yrs. And then there’s the Jack D. lol

Why do I not believe he quit opiates?  Simple. All the classic Stones songs were written/plagiarized while Keefer was on H, and he states he was afraid he wouldn’t be able to create music if he continued using..

Yet he wrote all the stones classics during the yrs he was on H...And virtually none after he supposedly quit. But he didn’t need to write any more after the early 80s..they’d written all their greatest songs already. He just needed to play from the 80s onwards. And you can play your own songs even if you’re still using.

The End.
