Still, it isn't the horse Old55 is looking for!

Yes Katie ! The Band is named after the cowboy's horse. They were prominent at the end of the 50s/ early 60s. However, despite their age, I'll bet you ALL know one of their songs.

Good tries Laurie and Brad. I like all your horse names, but .... Maybe think of an OLD COWBOY STAR first and you can google his horse's name !! And with Q1, you know how some artists do covers of other people's songs.....

POINTS TO DATE (Not including Participation Points for Q1 & Q2)

Laurie 8

Foxy, edna, daslied, kevin 5

UncleJoe 3

Shawna, bluesboy, brad 1

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

Q1. Another Artist/Group covered songs made famous by these Artists. WHO ?

Herb Alpert

Bee Gees

Commodores

O.K. I don't want to have to eat my words. I've said I only use well-known songs. These are, but perhaps the cover versions by the Artist/ Group in question aren't ? The "cover" of the Commodores song charted higher in Australia and the U.K. than the original did. The other two

were Album Tracks which got (still do) airplay on FM stations.

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

Q2. Which Artist or Group was named after a well known Movie Cowboy's horse ?

We're all around this one. Someone will get it !

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

Q3.

Who's this well-known Band member poking faces for the camera ?

Looks like a fairly old picture !

Q3 Wait ! I've got it ! It's Brian Jones from The Stones --there was a thread taking about this a month or so ago ! He's doing a nanker ! :laughing:

:coolio: CONGRAULATIONS KEVIN ! BRIAN JONES IT IS. :coolio:

I didn't see the thread. I got a book titled "According To The Rolling Stones" as a Birthday gift and this pic is in it. I still don't know what a "nanker" face is (that's what it's called in the book too).

:)

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

WITH Q2 - I really would suggest you think of old time cowboys first - ask some older relatives maybe - and THEN try for the name of their horses - Google will bring it up I'm sure !

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

Back Later. ;):P

LAURIE PLEASE READ !

#3...Spirit?

or The Champs???

Now, I've just been going through the posts collating the Points, and I THINK Laurie meant this for Q2, the Group named after a cowboy's horse, NOT the (then) Q3, Brotherhood Of Man. Is that so Laurie? Your word is good enough for us.

The correct answer to Q2 IS "The Champs" who took their name from Gene Autry's horse, Champ. Their Big Hit was of course "Tequila".

So Q2 is cancelled and the points in abeyance until I hear from Laurie.

:crazy:

SO POINTS TO DATE(Not including Participation Points for Q1 & Q2)ARE:

Kevin 10

Laurie 8

Edna 6

Foxy, daslied 5

UncleJoe 3

Shawna, bluesboy, brad 1
