Theme Of The Week - True or False (courtesy of - ahem - me)
1...Axl Rose once beat up a guy because he said he (Rose) looked like Jon Bon Jovi. 2...Ozzy Osborne once snorted live ants. (Note from scran - Ozzy, not sure you're allowed to answer that one) 3...Marilyn Manson was once asked who was the weirdest performer, he or Ozzy Osborne. He replied "Ozzy, because the weirdest thing I've ever snorted was sea horses." 4...Alice Cooper once nearly hanged himself onstage during a performance. True - Reynolds. Part of the act involved a mock hanging where Alice placed his neck in a noose. The stunt was badly set up and the rope was wrongly attached to the support, so that he really did begin to hang himself. 5...Jerry Landis, Paul Kane, Gregory Harrison and True Taylor are all the same person. True - Reynolds. They're all aliases of Paul Simon. 6...The Captain and Tenille song "Love Will Keep Us Together" is actually about two men. 7..."I Can't Get No Satiafaction" was just a working title for the song of the same name. 8...Elvis Presley died while sitting on the toilet. True - Reynolds. His autopsy revealed that he had at least 10 drugs in his system at the time of death. The official cause of death was "heart failure while straining at stool." He died on the pot. 9...Elvis liked to shoot at flashbulbs in his swimming pool. True - Newswatcher. He used to like sitting around the pool eating watermelon. For entertainment, he would float flashbulbs in the water and shoot them with a .22. When hit, the bulbs would flash and sink to the bottom. 10..The Carpenters' song "We've Only Just Begun" was actually a bank commercial. 11..The Beatles song "Sexy Sadie" was about the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
