Sarah did a song with them, "Beats of Love", back in 1995. Her character's back story was that she was the member of another member. And her character's name was Daisy Aertbelien. As far as I know, she has not made another appearance. But Sarah and another member of CPeX, Bart Peeters, are judges together on the Belgian show, The Best Singer-Songwriter of Flanders (DBSSVV).||Rad|
|Eric Clapton||Eric Patrick Clapton||Numerous sources, including Joel Whitburn's "Top Pop Singles", as well as many music industry websites, state that Eric Clapton's "real" surname is Clapp. This is an error, due to the fact that Clapp is the surname of his grandmother's second husband, Jack Clapp. Eric Clapton got his surname from his mother, Patricia Molly Clapton, the daughter of Reginald Cecil Clapton, Rose's first husband, Eric's maternal grandfather. www.whereseric.com confirms this.||Annabelle|

|Stars On, Star Sound, etc.||Stars On 45||The big "Stars On 45" phenomena in the early 80s spawned many dance medleys and remixes under the name of this Dutch studio band. However, due to record label and broadcasting regulations around the world (and this group topped the charts in SEVERAL countries) the hits were released under various "band" names. For example, the group name in New Zealand was "Star Sound". That's the Politics of Dancing.||Baby I'm a Star|
