today I learned: brian may, the guitarist of queen, built an electric guitar from scratch with his father when he was 16 years old, and called it the ‘red special’. he used that same guitar for his entire career, and it is his most prized possession. also, president lincoln formed the secret service on the same day that he was assassinated. next, neil young once wired up his house to be the left speaker and the barn as his right speaker so that he could listen to music from a boat in the middle of his lake. finally, every sweater worn by mr. rogers in mister rogers’ neighborhood was hand-knit by his mother 🙂
