Fresh Perspective

Clive Davis once asked John Lennon what sort of music he was listening to, and was stunned by the Beatle's reply: "Nothing."

"Nothing?" Davis replied. "Don't you want to know what's being played?"

"Absolutely not!" Lennon replied. "Did Picasso go to the galleries to see what was being painted?"

[While digging in Ethiopia in 1974, Donald Johanson discovered the skeleton of a three million-year-old female hominid. Johanson and his colleagues -- who happened to be listening to "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" -- playfully referred to the skeleton as Lucy, thereby naming one of the most significant discoveries in anthropological history after the subject of a Beatles' song.]
