OLD 55's ONGOING MUSIC KNOWLEDGE QUIZ

Recommended Posts

Jr and Brad, they may have been involved in recruiting those 3 but someone else is credited with "discovering" them. In fact that person is ALSO considered to have "discovered" Rufus Thomas and Ike Turner !

or could it be Sam Phillips ::

AND THAT'S WHO IT WAS!

:coolio:CONGRATULATIONS BRAD! YOU'RE UNSTOPPABLE TODAY. :coolio:

Ike Turner certainly acted as a "Talent Scout" for Sam Phillips and he was instrumental in recruiting a number of performers for Phillips. :)

Its a wild stab in the dark, but is it Golden Earring? Regards

NOT SO WILD.:coolio:CONGRATULATIONS DIGGS! WELL DONE. :coolio:

It is indeed the Dutch Group, who hit worldwide in late 1973/ early 1974 with "Radar Love".

Edna dear, Brad is right. We gave that rule the chop some time ago! :(

LAST TWO QUESTIONS FOR THE NIGHT (HERE)

Q1. This Australian Group had a very Big Hit in the U.K. in the early 1970s. It also charted in the U.S. Top 50. WHO are they???

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Q2. We've had a number of great overseas musicians visit Australia this year, but tickets to concerts by a LOCAL act (known Worldwide - I hope in Spain also, Edna) sold out much quicker than that of any visitors. P.S. The concerts haven't even been held yet!

Who do you think this person/group is? :)
