Have you got any interesting rock facts? . If so , please share. I've got a few for you (feel free to correct me if i'm wrong in any detail but I got most of this info from rock autobiographies): Tony Iommi - got a prosthetic finger after chopping the tip off one of the fingers on his left hand on his last day working in a factory. He had to modify his left hand style accordingly. This led to the original Sabbath sound. He started off with a strat but when it broke, picked up his Gibson SG, and stuck with it for the rest of his career. Brian May - throughout his career, played a guitar he and his father made. Keith Moon - started with the Who after they asked the audience at one of their gigs for a drummer after they sacked their former drummer. Moon was supposedly in the crowd, but I have a feeling it wasnt just a coincidence. He was also a big fan of the Beach Boys. Keith Richards - mostly uses open tuning on a 5 string telecaster. Steve Cropper - worked in a guitar shop were Jimi Hendrix bought a guitar. Jimi Hendrix - liked to use different guitars and effects for different songs. He had a guy design special effects for him (which developed into many of the stomp boxes we have today). Ace Frehley's triple humbucker Les Paul used in KISS' Budokan shows had one active pickup (think smoke spewed from the others). Correct me if i'm wrong here. Pete Townshend - was given a prize Rickenbacker by Joe Walsh as a gift, which he later smashed in a gig. He got this one repaired. Townshend played so loud that he caused major damage to his own hearing.
