The Georgia rock band led by the brothers Chris and Rich Robinson played a ragged mixture of garage rock and alt-country for about five years under the name Mr. Crowe's Garden reportedly inspired by Johnny Crow's Garden, an early 20th century children's book by Leonard Leslie Brookes before changing it to something a little more with their Humble Pie and Faces obsession. As limp as their original moniker was, though, it could have been much, much worse: According to Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, Def American head Rick Rubin once told them, "'I think you should be the Kobb Kounty Krows and spell it [like] the KKK.' And we all laughed, and he goes, 'No, I'm serious. . . I think that'd be marketable.' We told him to go fuck himself. I mean, it was completely insulting on every level." ****I don't blame tha band one bit for this. Kudos to them!****

Bassist Tom Peterson and Guitarist Rick Neilson were in a band called Fuse before Cheap Trick was formed in 1973. They put out one single ("Hound Dog" b/w "Crusin for Burgers") in 1969 and only one album, called 'Fuse' in January 1970 Rick: "Tom Petersson and I were in a Midwest band called Fuse. The guys we were with were all rinky dinks; they’re probably pumping gas now. Tom and I had the stick-to-it-iveness and positive thinking to know what we wanted to do, so we split the band and went off to hang out in England.... That Fuse stuff stinks. We don’t stand by it" Tom: "The band was much better than the album indicates. When it came out we were disgusted. The producer was an idiot." Rick and Tom went on to form a new band called Sick Man of Europe which led to Cheap Trick.

For the infamous 2016 campaign, the Republican Party offered the band $100,000 to play at a concert launching the 2016 Republican National Convention. Singer Robin Zander said, "We turned it down. Then we had second thoughts. Maybe we should have accepted it—but we would all have got swastika guitars made." Cheap Trick is known for making flip remarks all the time.

"I've never been shot, I've never been arrested, and I've been doing hip hop all my life. I can't change things all by myself. We need everybody's help, so let's do it and get this thing done." At the acceptance speech in 2007 Melle Mel and The Furious Five (joined by DJ Grandmaster Flash) became the first rap group ever inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Mel implored the recording industry members in attendance to do more to bring hip hop back to the culture of music and art that it once was, rather than the culture of violence that it is now. After all, he and his mates wrote anti-drug songs like 'White Lines (Don't Do It)'.and Mel himself wrote the anti-crime 'Vice' which is on the soundtrack for the TV show MIAMI VICE.

We had this gig [in Jacksonville, Florida in 1964], and it was [supposed to be] segregated. And that was really hard to understand. I mean, most of our heroes are African American musicians and singers, so we just didn’t understand it. And we said, “Well, we’re not going” and I think so there wouldn’t be a traffic hold-up in the town, they said, okay, you can play it [integrated]. That was a good move on our part, but it was strictly because lot of black musicians were our heroes. So it just didn’t seem right.. Ringo Starr on secregation in America

'None. There is no such thing.' Reply Florian Schneider gave when Lester Bangs asked him in 1975 what kind of groupies Kraftwerk got. Dumb and nosy question to ask. And it also shows how serious Kraftwerk is in making MUSIK NON STOP!

We go beyond all this individual feel. We are more like vehicles, a part of our mensch machine, our man-machine. Sometimes we play the music, sometimes the music plays us, sometimes... it plays.

Today, the world lost a true giant in the history of rock & roll. An inspiration to millions with an unmistakable sound who spawned generations of musicians (like myself) to pick up two sticks and chase a dream. A kind, thoughtful, brilliant man who ruled our radios and turntables not only with his drumming, but also his beautiful words. I still vividly remember my first listen of ‘2112’ when I was young. It was the first time I really listened to a drummer. And since that day, music has never been the same. His power, precision, and composition was incomparable. He was called ‘The Professor’ for a reason: We all learned from him. Thank you, Neil for making our lives a better place with your music. You will be forever remembered and sorely missed by all of us. And my heartfelt condolences to the Rush family. God bless Neil Peart

Little Richard had hip replacement surgery in 2009, limiting his performance capabilities like Phil Collins has it now. “I’m sorry I can’t do it like it’s supposed to be done,” he told one audience in 2012. After the audience screamed back in encouragement, he said “Oh, you gonna make me scream like a white girl!”
