P- Anzers

1] Start off with a simple, standard music question. I know my 100 is safe so I'll hazard easy questions. Name the artist/bandlthat recorded this song: "They foxymophandlemama, that's me?"
- Pearl Jam

2] What is a violoncello?
-A cello, a bass instrument used in classical music. Keep tapping the G

- 29, "Chattanooga Choo Choo" was a Glenn Miller big-band/swing song featured in the 1941 movie Sun Valley Serenade

4] For whom did Colonel Tom Parker act as manager?
- Elvis Presley. This one was very easy

5] In the Beatles song "Elanor Rigby", what is Elanor Rigby's profession?

-Inventing Rap music

8] Who was the first musician allowed to play an electric guitar on TV ?
- It was Tony Sheridan. He was the lead singer with 'The Beat Boys' comprising Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Pete Best! A curlig googly wasn't it?

9] Why has Motley Crue been banned from NBC?
- Crue will not appear on NBC again because of singer Vince Neil's use of obscenity when wishing bandmate Tommy Lee a Happy New Year on the Tonight show with Jay Leno. Americans are prudes, prudish in a soap dish. Tommy Lee is not the only bad boy now.

10] What are the three primary woods used in the construction of a Gibson Les Paul Standard Electric Guitar?
- The standard Les Paul uses mahogany for the body, over which you have a AA maple. The neck is also mahogany with a rosewood fingerboard. Very funda innit?

  1. 3) pretty sure it was track 29.. not platform 29...
    5) hmm.... if you say so
    7) I thought Rap was invented by this group from the brox called the last poets or lost poets or something... ah well.. rap, hip hop... hate them all the same.
    8) that was a bit of a surprise... would have expected somebody more old school
    9) right... so it wasn't Tommy Lee who screwed up this time... but I heard they all sued NBC for millions
    10) Decent guess eh? Actually got 2 out of 3

  2. we're very desi here, track=platform but yeah to be absolutely correct its track

    Kool herc is credited with it. Played it in a club. Guess where I read this first, in a book about Cool

    That one is old school alright mid 50s considering Beatles started jamming sometime in 1958 so...

    the woods thingy was a good guess on your part.

  3. arrrrgh i knew all thje answers apart from the last one... and i didn't bother cause i thght u'd have some trick question up your sleeve... KBFGVsd;kbg;isdjbk;gsdgdsaksig (my forehead on the keyboard) :(
