how are having webbed toes in any way insensitive to albino people... Those with the condition ,more likely than not, are not albino. I honestly thought it was a possibility, based on the information in the' clue ' that they were albino ... possibly they had another unusual physical characteristic !

NO, NOT the webbed feet. The "offence" I thought could be taken was from "not getting it up". I'm giving you a point too now, so EVERY participant in the "Winter Brothers" Competion got something. (Hope it's not webbed feet or impotency!)

:drummer:

And Here's a NEW QUESTION:

How's this for a vote of confidence. When this Group was booked for a gig that was to start them on the road to fame, the owner of the Club said to them "Nobody's gonna like you "guys/girls", but I'll book you anyway".

Who was the Group?

I'll take the points, Old55.

It was The Ramones. :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

:coolio: YOU'RE "THE MAN" BRAD. THAT WAS THEM ALRIGHT ! :) :) Incidentally, it was a New York Night Club called CBGB (whatever that stands for?) and the date was 16th August 1974.

That puts you in the lead:

NEW QUESTION

WHICH Group/Band issued this statement when they split up.

"We don't regard this as breaking up. We look at it as an expansion of our activities. We will devote our time to individual rather than group projects".

Damn I knew that one! OLD55, CBGB stands for Country, Blue Grass and Blues. :bow:

My guess for the new question is Creedence Clearwater Revival. :shades:

That chart position is incorrect information Kevin.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir hit position # 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with the song "Battle Hymn Of The Republic" in 1959.

This IS a pain, then, as I've just checked another source putting it at #72 ! :) :stars: Certainly, there's misinformation out there, but something like this should be rather set and consistent, you'd think. Kinda of like listing nominees rather than winners on a past Oscars list...

According to Joel Whitburn, it was # 13.

And anyone knows not to question Joel Whitburn :bow: when it comes to music.
