Rumors About Musicians That Turned Out To Be True

There are plenty of crazy stories out there about musicians. Since they live lives full of money, fame, groupies, and a what-happens-on-tour-stays-on-tour mentality, it's not surprising that normal people with far less exciting existences will believe pretty much any rumor that starts going around about a performer. There's almost nothing we won't believe about the behavior of musicians. But so often the tales of reckless hedonism, diva antics, or random weirdness end up being untrue.

    Respected Musicians Who Were Actually Terrible People - Grunge

    Some musicians just have a freakish amount of talent. Most of us learn at a young age that we are not those people. The realization probably came as soon as you were old enough to read social cues and you tried showing off your amazing talents to anyone except your pet. (Daisy is a very good dog, but maybe not a very good judge of musical ability.) Those who do have that freakish amount of talent are the singer-songwriters, the people who can play any instrument they pick up, the ones who get lost in the music of their own making whether they're in the studio or on stage...

    Prince Rogers Nelson, if anyone, seemed like he had his life in order. The diminutive superstar was practically worshipped by millions, and with songs like "When Doves Cry," "Kiss," "Purple Rain," and "I Wanna Be Your Lover" under his belt, it's easy to imagine that the musician was set for a happy, productive life of singing the proverbial panties off each and every person who heard him.
