Trouble is there are too many earlier posts now and I can't even remember what I posted previously let alone everyone else's.   I was going to do "Crash Course in Brain Surgery" by Budgie and Metallica but I think I did that a while ago.
 

How about this one?

According to David Bowie, Taylor was the main inspiration for Bowie's character Ziggy Stardust.

The band Golden Earring referred to Taylor in their 1973 album Moontan, with the song "Just Like Vince Taylor", which was the US B-side for their hit "Radar Love".

People think that Aretha Franklin's famous song 'Respect' was an anthem for all women, and it was.....but only after a change of lyrics from the original writer and performers version...and that was Otis Redding.
