From About Classic Rock Guide Dave White:

"Rock and roll has a longstanding association with sex, drugs and general depravity, so itís a natural breeding ground for myths and legends surrounding some of its more famous and colorful practitioners. ...Surprisingly enough, some of rockís most outlandish myths are still circulating, masquerading as true stories."  The Top 10 Myths of Rock & Roll
