From http://rakenrolforever.blogspot.com/2008/03/pinoy-rock-trivia.html

DID YOU KNOW that the term 'Jeprox' was coined by the late Anak Bayan drummer and Pinoy Rock icon Edmond Fortuno? 'Jeprox' was a term used in the 1970's to describe male rockers who sported long hair and lived the rock n' roll lifestyle. It actually started as a shortened version of the phrase, "Jeepney Rock", which in itself described the classic and hard rock music that was being played inside local jeepneys at the time.

Mike Hanopol would later immortalize the term 'Jeprox' is his mega-hit "Laki Sa Layaw" in the late 70's. But it was the inventive mind of Edmond Fortuno who came up with the word which is now a part of Pinoy slang.

**It was also Fortuno's idea to write Tagalog lyrics with rock music which eventually evolved into Pinoy Rock. Pinoy rock bands of the late 60's and early 70's were only doing covers of foreign acts at the time and hadn't written any original material yet.

Eraserheads was once sponsored by Adidas for their apparel because Adidas Philippines spotted the band wearing the Adidas apparel (though it is borrowed by their friends or just bought from ukay-ukay)...

Francis Reyes earned the nickname "Brew" from his first step of NU 107 radio station... Someone looked for him to work, asking to another NU 107 personnel, "Asan na yung bruha (referring to Reyes)??"...

David Bowie's "Life on Mars" can be considered an  alternate version of Paul Anka's "My Way" (made famous by Frank Sinatra). Both are based on the same French song, “Comme, D’Habitude."

The Alternative metal band "Breaking benjamin" from Pennsylvania derived their name from an incident when their vocalist Benjamin Burnley was covering a Nirvana song during an open mic night at a club. He kicked the microphone stand over, breaking it. The person who owned the microphone came on stage and said, "I'd like to thank Benjamin for breaking my [strawberry] microphone."
