Quotes:

"Rock music is important to people because it allows them to escape this crazy world. It allows them not to run away from the problems that are there, but to face up to them, but at the same time sort of dance all over them. That's what rock and roll is about."

Story about this misheard lyric by: Aaliyah Fiona El-Mas'ri Akhetemset

Embarrassed myself singing in front of my ex-girlfriend's father when i was 17 (in the mid-20-aughts). Thought it was a funny song about a carjacking. I had only been in the United States for three years at that time and English is not my first language. My friends had introduced me to Weird Al and a few Youtube comedy songs, which I thought was a common feature of American music outside of the pop stuff all the people here pretend to hate that we mostly hear labeled as "American Music" in the rest of the world. Turns out my friends were just really into comedy music that i could see telling a story about a carjacking in love song format.

Performers with Handicaps:

"Hearing Loss"
This was due in part to a gig on the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour that went wrong after Tommy, Keith Moon, and Pete Townshend put three times as much dynamite in the back of Keith's drum kit.
Submitted by: Celeste
"Tinnitus"
Caused by Keith Moon's exploding drum kit on the Smothers Brothers show in 1967.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"The Windmill"
His signature way of guitar playing. Hurts the fingers.
Submitted by: jdizzy
"Saying he was a "woman" in an interview."
During a 1990 interview, when asked about the interpretation of "Rough Boys" and his sexual orientation, Townshend quoted, (from a book of interviews by Timothy White), "I know how it feels to be a woman, because I am a woman. And I won't be classified as just a man."
