There are lots of urban legends. Especially about rock stars. I first heard this one when it was circulating about Marc Almond and he's still trying to live it down. There are lots more urban legends here though. I especially like the rumour that the Peter, Paul & Mary tune "Puff, the Magic Dragon" is a coded song about marijuana. Not true, but who cares, don't let facts get in the way of a good rumour.
Here are some more myths (mainly false):-
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" and "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky!"
"When I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean, I'd love to be skinny like that, but not with all those flies and death and stuff."
Oracle CEO Larry Ellison delivered an unusual commencement address to the Yale class of 2000.
Scientist Michael Faraday told the prime minister the usefulness of his invention was that 'someday you can tax it.'
"I would rather die than have a white person buy one of my albums."
"I've learned not to put things in my mouth that are bad for me."
"The only thing a nigger can do for me is buy my records and shine my shoes."
"Stick with driving a truck, because you're never going to make it as a singer."
Elvis Presley's backup singers walked out on a concert after his racist remark that their breath "smelled like catfish."
