Secret Rock Knowledge

Welcome to the Secret Rock Knowledge, which is somewhat unsecret as secret knowledge goes, since pretty much everything here is contained within my book Is Tiny Dancer Really Elton’s Little John?: Music’s Most Enduring Mysteries, Myths, and Rumors Revealed. But its rockingness is undiminished. The caveat to all the information here is that it was up-to-date and vetted for accuracy as of the book’s publication in 2006. If anything here seems wrong or out of date, please email me and I’ll look into it.

If you enjoy what you read here, and would like it in convenient book form to take to the beach, you can buy a copy. The paper copy is sparklier than this website, plus it has acknowledgments, Library of Congress information, and extensive endnotes documenting my sources.
