Description
Have you ever heard the story of the ballet that sparked a riot? Or the rock star who became an astrophysicist? Did you know that there was controversy behind "Mary Had a Little Lamb," or that a song saved Wheaties cereal? Or that a man was once killed by his own conducting? Prepare to be astonished, bewildered, and stupefied by the tidbits of music history collected here by Rick Beyer, the author of several books in the Greatest Stories Never Told series as well as a documentary filmmaker for the History Channel, A&E, and National Geographic Channel. Learn how the FBI spent years trying to decode the lyrics of one rock song, why Watergate provided inspiration for A Chorus Line, and what megahit's lyrics were dashed off in a fit of anger at Robert De Niro.

"We picked up the book expecting to inflate our egos, reinforcing the myth that we know everything there is to know about music history. Short answerówe were wrong, very wrong."óLA Weekly
