Some Assorted Useless Information

Here is some material that I found on some of the Post-It notes on my desk. 

(1) Remember the Stereophonics?  Their singer is named Stuart Cable.  His mom’s name is Mabel.  So yes, her name is “Mabel Cable.

(2)  When Noel Gallagher was working as a roadie for the Manchester band, the Inspiral Carpets, he had a reputation of being a very sound sleeper.  In fact, his nickname was “cot death.” 

And (3), Fieldy is the bass player for Korn.  That’s not his real name, of course.  It’s Reginald Avizu.  His sister’s name is Mandi Avizu.  She’s in show business, too—but she’s a porn star.  Trust me when I say you don’t want to know how she used to party with the crew backstage…

    The Inspiral Carpets! I've seen that they're back together recently. Maybe Noel would want his old job back.

    Actually, Stuart Cable was the drummer. Kelly Jones is the singer. And according to Wikipedia, Mr. Cable died in 2010 after choking on his own vomit. 🙁

    Think the last name is Arvizu, as well.
