Hey Music Lover is basically a cover version of the Music Lover section of Dance to the Melody by Sly and The Family Stone

That surprised me too. I didn't realise until I finally heard the Dance To The Music album and it was a proper hat-fucking/hat's-arse-bolting moment. I also didn't realise Beastie Boys 'Time For Livin' was a Sly cover until I heard Small Talk.

At the absolute height of their breakthrough, REM became the backing band for The Troggs and recorded an album with them. Sprinkled a little fairy dust on it I assume

Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys of OMD went to school with Theresa May's husband. He was two years above them and ended up as head boy.

Anita Baker's debut solo album was funded by LA cocaine kingpin Freeway Rick Ross who when convicted was estimated to have bought and resold several metric tons of cocaine between 1982 and 1989. In 1980 dollars, his gross earnings were said to be in excess of $900 million – with a profit of nearly $300 million (gross income equivalent to $2.8 billion and profit equivalent to $940 million in 2020).

And despite that he still buys cheap fridges.

Apparently so! And John Williams played the piano riff on the original Peter Gunn theme way back in the 60s.

Gilbert O'Sullivan could have easily ended up a member of Supertramp

Quote
Here, he played with several semi-professional bands including the Doodles, the Prefects and was most notably drummer in a band called Rick's Blues, along with Malcolm Mabbett (guitar), Keith Ray (bass), and founder Rick Davies.[11][12]
Davies, who later founded Supertramp, taught O'Sullivan how to play both drums and piano.[13]

Johnny Ramone hated guitar solos, and almost never played a lead part for the Ramones.

Most of the solos from the studio albums were actually overdubbed by Tommy Ramone, Ed Stadium or whoever was there at the time. They were missing in concert, unless some roadie would play a few chords from backstage.

The "Unter Gleiben Glauchen Globen" count-in from the beginning of Offspring's "Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)" is taken from the Def Leppard song "Rock Of Ages"

Sherman Hemsley, annoyed father from 70s sitcoms "All In The Family" and "The Jeffersons" (and one of the voices on "Dinosaurs") was such a big fan of oddball prog band Gong that he had a room in his house called the "Flying Teapot Room", where that song would play 24/7. Also, he apparently had two Puerto Rican guys making LSD in his basement and cocaine / crack stations on every floor of his house, but that's not really germane to this music thread.
