  1. IIRC, Edison Lighthouse, which recorded “Love Goes (Where My Rosemary Grows)” were a fictional band — the producers just grabbed a bunch of studio musicians so they could release the song in-house.

  2. Oh, music history is filled with bands made up of thrown together session musicians, but they actually played the music, ya know? A fictional band here would be more like, say, Milli Vanilli, who didn’t do the actual song.
