LONDON, Aug 6 (Reuters)- So you want to be a rock 'n' roll star? Talent
and hours of practice have less to do with success than your sign of the
zodiac, according to a survey to be published on Friday.
Using the birth dates of 1800 artists, Guinness Rockopedia, a new guide
to rock and pop, found fortune shone on those born in the spring and
summer months under the signs Taurus, Aries, Cancer and Gemini.
Those born under chilly autumn and winter signs face an uphill struggle,
according to the survey, with Aquarians, Scorpians and Sagittarians
faring worst of all.
``The evidence is quite clear to us. If you're Taurus, Aries or Cancer
we're more likely to see you in the charts,'' said Rockopedia's editor
David Roberts.
Famous musical Taurians include Stevie Wonder and U2's Bono, while
Aretha Franklin and Blur's Damon Albarn are Arians.
