Default Re: Song lyrics and other cloaked references

I know The Beatle's "Hey Jude" is about John Lennons first son Julian.
Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" is about founding member Syd Barrett.

And who can forget the musical missiles launched between John Lennon and Paul McCartney?

I can! I only remember Johns song "How Do You Sleep?"
What was Pauls?

Then there's Lynyrd Skynyrds public calling out of Neil Young in "Sweet Home Alabama"
in reply to Neil's "Southeren Man"

The Allman Brother's Eat a Peach album was named so because it was a peach truck that was involved in the motorcycle accident that claimed Duane...

BTW thanks Drummist for the informative link, I'll trust that source.

Ironically enough, if I have my facts straight, one year later, almost to the day, the Allmans bassist Berry Oakley died in a similar fashion as Duane, motorcycle accident...

This is all common knowledge, I know there's a ton more, but I can't think of any either right now.
