Hi on Stairway To Cleveland they sing "my manager's an asshole" but the liner notes say "a really nice person." I was wondering did they not want fans to mistakenly dislike Mr Bill Thompson, or did the RCA people not want to print the word asshole? I have been wondering that for like Thirty Years, man
How many fingers am I holding?

I'm guessing it was RCA censoring a bit, because the lyric "insane fuckers" was changed to "silly people" in the liner notes for the same song.
