Yep, I would like to know the scandals of some of these as well (not that I doubt it's true, just that I have no idea and I'm curious): Neil Young, Womack and Womack, Marlene Dietrich, Billy Joel, Dusty Springfield, Sammy Davis Jr.

There's only a few non-familiar artists in this list. Scandals will do that for you.

The ones I know off the top of my head...

Sammy Davis Jr: dated a famous white actress back in the 50s when interracial marriage was still illegal in half the US states.

Womack and Womack: Cecil Womack proposed to Linda Cooke (Sam Cooke's daughter) before she was a teenager. Then there's their family tree. Cecil's brother Bobby was married to Linda's mother shortly after Sam Cooke died. When Cecil and Linda eventually married years later, Bobby became Cecil's stepfather in law.

Marlene Dietrich - a strong opponent of the Nazi government and her movies were banned in Germany
Ozzy Osborne - Drug user - mostly cocaine

I think that the biggest scandal concerning this band is that they were not the real singers.

My first thought about these guys were something else entirely. The two front men pretended to sing while in reality being lip-syncing dancers only. The real singers were never visible. They got a Grammy which was retracted when the scandal broke.

Thanks, Adam! And I really hope you mean "when she was a teenager".

Keep your chin up! I deliberately chose a more boring song off the 2/3 I considered to accomodate for BSG-participants penchant.

Drugs are scandalous???
Almost everybody takes drugs in the music industry.
It's nothing surprising.
