* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYfnBVM8eQ8 this studio footage]] of his special concert for ''The Midnight Special'' in 1973, he suffers a WardrobeMalfunction (safe for work) and soldiers on regardless...complete with a new lyric for "Time"! (Relevant part starts around 1:45.)

He also revealed several "Celebrity Secrets": he lied when he said "It's great to be in Cincinnati!" at one concert, and lives in denial that, before all his reinventions, he was an overweight Korean woman.

* One interview ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4C3KqUS0tk starts at about 0:32]]) has him mocking both himself and his critics when asked about "virtual reincarnation", with a hilarious put-on accent to boot.
