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.

    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. There's something almost magical about listening to a true musical genius, and they've definitely earned our respect.

    Musicians Who Hate Their Most Famous Songs

    Here's the good news: We've finally started to move past the idea that a song has to be obscure in order for discerning people to like it. If you're lucky, you might make it the rest of your adult life without someone at a party berating you for never having heard of their favorite musicians, The Adjective Verb Nouns. As a society, we've finally made our peace with admitting that we don't hate popular music. At least, the listeners have. The songs' performers still think you're listening to garbage.
