QUESTION 1

At a Concert held in the last 5 years, a young man who was an integral part of it referred to one of the performers as "Uncle". WHO was he referring to ?

I would ask what was the event, and who was the young man, but if you put that and are incorrect with the person he was referring to, you'll give away a huge clue to the others.

Nice try ! Well, you know I think that's the BEST song of the Rock N Roll era, and together with "Yesterday" they've racked up 8 Million U.S. airplays each. But it is something else unfortunately. You picked up a Point anyway !
