5 Points to you and 2 to Rich for a Very Honorable Mention for his answer. That makes you equal leader now Laurie. :D

I'll have to think up a new Question quickly. We're headed off to my Mother-In-Law's 95th Birthday Party shortly.

* Would have left by now, but we have to pick up relatives arriving by plane, which has been delayed for an hour or more with a flat tyre!

NEW QUESTION AND UPDATED POINTS

My darn scanner doesn't like Adobe Deluxe. I had to reboot my computer again.

Q1. Who's this Hard Rock/ Heavy Metal Group formed in the early 70s. They had one big Hit Single. 11.jpg

Thanks bluesboy. She's a great lady and very good for her age.

Not E.L.O. Laurie. "Rockier" than them - I'd call them a Heavy Metal Group really. They only had the one big Single but quite a few good albums. I'll go back and change the caption, because they were formed in the EARLY 70s. :)

If the drummer were in the picture, then that would make it the Dave Clark SIX, now wouldn't it? I knew Old Forge wasn't the greatest high school in the area, but you would think their graduates would at least know how to count to six. Man!

I can count, "Master Fender", Sammy! :laughing: :laughing:

Maybe that was the drummer playing the tambourine and he had the drums on auto-pilot. =:P

Blue Oyster Cult

"Don't Fear The Reaper" was their Big single of course.

We just got home, and I couldn't resist having a look to see if someone had gotten it! Back in about 3/4 hour with a new Question. :)

NEW QUESTION

I'll take the easy way with a "Something in Common" Question. I think this one could prove a little more difficult. Please prove me wrong. :)

I'm looking for something in common for Songs by these 3 Artists:

Hollies

Hall And Oates

Johnny Rivers

All 3 are well known Hits.

Hollies - "Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress)"

Hall & Oates - "Private Eyes"

Johnny Rivers - "Secret Agent Man"

TOO EASY! :coolio:CONGRATULATIONS AND WELL DONE BRAD! :coolio:

All songs about "Detectives". :thumbsup:

We have Family here tonight and I'm not sure if I'll be able to post any more Questions, sorry! My office is being used as a bedroom (again) tonight. ::

Speaking of Blue Oyster Cult, does anybody remember the skit they did on Saturday Night Live with Christopher Walken as Bruce Dickinson with cast members playing Blue Oyster Cult in the recording studio recording the song (Don't Fear) The Reaper?

Quote: "Guess What? I've got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell". ~ Christoper Walken :laughing:

It is hilarious!

You can watch it here:
