Bonus Trivia

.

After an onstage incident in Croydon, England, in which Cale beheaded an already-dead chicken and threw the head and the body into the crowd, his backing band walked off the stage in protest. Cale wrote the 1977 song "Chickensh*t" about the incident.

.

Participated in a notorious 18-hour concert organized by John Cage in New York City on Sept. 9, 1963, in which 12 pianists, playing in shifts, performed the entirety of Erik Satie's "Vexations" (c. 1893), a short piece of music that is repeated 840 times.

.

As a result of the "Vexations" concert, appeared on the TV game show "I've Got A Secret" (CBS 1952-67) alongside the only audience member who stayed for the entirety of the 18-hour show.
