Music. It makes our lives colorful and a little less boring.
To some people, travelling on your way to work without your headphones feels like an eternity. I’m guilty of this, actually.
We are pretty sure that you’ll gonna love this one because we’re going to cover some of the most unusual facts about your favorite artists.
Sorry to all the One Direction and Justin Bieber fans, we are talking about “REAL” music here. So, let’s get it on!
Interesting Facts About Famous Musicians
Here are some interesting facts about the greatest musicians that ever walked in the face of our planet. You probably know some of these facts already but some of them are so awesome that you cannot leave them out on this list.
The Blondie King
All Hail the King!
What do you remember when someone mentions the name “Elvis Presley”?
The cool suits, unhealthy diet, groovy songs and that macho hairstyle of his.
We all remember him as a black haired guy, but actually, he’s a natural blonde.
The perfect personification of the famous catchphrase: “Once you go black, you’ll never go back”.
Brian May, the lead guitarist of the English band Queen, is the probably one of the most talented musicians in the world. Both in and out of the stage.
He studied Mathematics and Physics in the Imperial College of London. After graduation, he decided to leave his work behind and continued to work on their soon-to-be legendary band.
In 2006, May continued his work and got his PhD in Astrophysics.
We can’t deny it. A guy like Stevie Wonder only comes once in a lifetime.
That soothing voice is more than enough to tuck anyone to sleep.
But did you know that something happened to him that made him a walking pair of ears?
After a tragic car crash, Stevie lost his sense of smell and temporarily lost his sense of taste.
Good thing he survived the crash and recovered fully from his injuries.
