Here are the answers:

  • What musician used to be known as Romeo Blue?
    - Lenny Kravitz
    He wore blue contact lenses to get the look. Popular guesses were Prince, Billy Idol, and Lil' Romeo.

  • What rock star was injured recently when he crashed his all-terrain vehicle?
    - Ozzy Osbourne
    He took a nasty spill, but is making a recovery.

  • When he appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show campaigning for president, what song did Bill Clinton play on sax?
    - Heartbreak Hotel
    Our favorite wrong answer was "Play The Funky Music, White Boy." A lot of people thought it was "Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow," which was his campaign song, but doesn't translate well to the sax.

    - Madonna
    The book is called The English Roses.

  • What R.E.M. song was used as the theme song for a TV show?
    - "Stand"
    It was the theme song to Get A Life, starring Chris Elliot as a middle-aged paper boy. It ran on Fox from 1990-1992. Fox was a new network, and willing to try just about anything. This didn't work so well, but another show that came on around that time did - The Simpsons.

    - Sheryl Crow
    She had big hair and got to duet with him on "I Just Can't Stop Loving You" during the Bad tour.

    - Gary Glitter
    The guy famous for "Rock And Roll, Part 2" got arrested for having child pornography on his computer.

  • What singer is named after an African word for "Fire"?
    - Chaka Khan
    Popular guesses: Ashanti, Shakira, Sade, Aaliyah and Erykah Badu. It's also clear that no one remembers how to spell India Arie.

    - Heaven 17

  • What famous song is based on a movie about a town that is destroyed by a hurricane?
