… and some more absolutely random rock and roll facts

I said in yesterday’s post that today’s would again cover some very incidental facts affiliated with the musical genre known as rock and roll, and here we are. I try to keep my posts around 300 words or less so as not to lose anyone’s attention, therefore I won’t be including each and every fact listed on the site I’m getting this information from. I do, however, implore you to visit the site and read them all in their entirety, because they are pretty neat.

Again, this information comes from iloveclassicrock.com.

“6. Nirvana Got Kicked Out Of Their Own Release Party: Would you believe WHY? The listening party was held at the Rebar in downtown Seattle. From the start, it was bound to be a disaster since Kurt Cobain and the rest of the guys were known for their little acts of mischief. The night started out great with the group signing autographs and acting like friendly hosts. But with the continuous flow of alcohol, things went bad real quick. They began tossing a watermelon filled with ranch dressing and so, one thing led to another which inevitably ended up in a food fight with people throwing tamale and guacamole at each other. They were then escorted by security to the door.

5. Brian Jones Could Play More Than 10 Musical Instruments: Not everyone can play musical instruments but you know what’s even rarer? Someone who can play almost anything and is actually good at every single one of them. The Rolling Stones co-founder Brian Jones is hands-down, a genius. So now, we’ll list down the instrument and you count them off. Guitar, harmonica, piano, sitar, organ, trumpet, recorder, marimba, saxophone, oboe, vibraclasp, Appalachian dulcimer, autoharp, brass section, percussions, and xylophone – this isn’t even the complete list because Jones also learned playing OTHER exotic instruments.

1. Malcolm Young Once Worked In A Bra Factory:

We started this list with an odd pre-rockstar job and we’ll end it with another. You see, legend has it, anyone who has seen Malcolm Young play live immediately wanted to be a guitarist. He’s good at his craft and we all know he’s part of the reason we got to enjoy the music of AC/DC. If it weren’t for him and his brother, Angus, the world would be a darker place to live in. Before they were recording timeless songs and filling stadiums, he worked at a bra factory as a mechanic. Yes, you read that right. He was just 15 at the time,” the web page explains.

You’re welcome, my friends.
