Steve Kerr of Simple Minds?

:afro: :afro: :afro: :: ::

NO TIME TO GOOGLE THERE! YOU SURE KNEW THAT ONE. :thumbsup:

:coolio: CONGRATULATIONS SAMMY !!! WELL DONE. :coolio:

As you said, lead singer of Simple Minds, he was married to Chrissie Hynde and Patsy Kensit, who appeared (most of her anyway) in the movie "Lethal Weapon II".

Now I gotta think up a new Question.

I also want to commend Laurie for her tenacity. I hope my football team tries as hard as she does this afternoon ! :)

NEW QUESTION.

What do The Beatles, Dave Clark Five and Beethoven have in common? (No, I don't think the Dave Clark Five did a version of "Roll Over Beethoven").

I'll check back after lunch. :)

That's close enough Katie. You've given me the song, "Because".

:coolio: CONGRATULATIONS KATIE! WELL DONE!!! :coolio:

The song is based on Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata as you said, and the Beatles had an album version ( on Abbey Road) while the Dave Clark Five had a big hit single with it in 1964.

"Because".

Huh?

The Dave Clark Five's Because

It's right that I should care about you

And try to make you happy when you're blue

It's right, it's right to feel the way I do

Because, because I love you

is a completely different song than

The Beatles' Because

Because the world is round it turns me on

Because the world is round

Because the wind is high it blows my mind

Because the wind is high, etc.

Yes, I made a mistake with "Because" bazooka. It's not the first one, and it won't be the last. Thanks for pointing it out to me so gracefully.

You are quite right too Diggs - it is Jim. I didn't even know he had a brother called Steve. Thanks for bringing it to my notice politely.

We are headed out to dinner for our middle son's 26th Birthday party now. I'll try to put more questions on later.

Well, Jim, Steve, who cares? :: ::

Thanks Edna. I just saw "lead singer of Simple Minds" really. An extra 2 Points to my Mate Diggs for an Honorable Mention (adjusted above). :)

..........................................................

I certainly don't object to being told when I make a mistake. Of course there are different ways of doing it.

O.K. Pressing onwards ! And you can see my scanner is fixed.

QUESTION 1.

ONLY ONE ATTEMPT EACH at this Question please ! :)

There have been many different lineups of the World's greatest "Girl Group", The Supremes.

Here's 4 pictures, NOT in chronological order, of some of the lineups. Can you name all 12 ladies IN ORDER from A to L ?

IF nobody gets it by the time I have a look at it in the morning here, we'll jackpot the Points to 8 and try again.
