Artistfacts is a searchable database of artist information compiled by radio professionals, music enthusiasts, and visitors to this web site. The "Artistfacts" are interesting tidbits about the people making the music. This is where you can find out the length of Gene Simmons' tongue. Artistfacts is free.

Using Artistfacts
If you have a specific artist in mind, type it into the search window. It will search the database, returning any artists that contain the word or words you entered in the title. You do not need to enter the entire name of the artist, for example a search of "Simon" will bring up Paul Simon as well as any other artists with "Simon" in their name. You can also browse the database by clicking on the letters under the search window, or get a random listing by clicking the "Random Artist" button from the home page.
