Don't know what that means, but let's try this one:

In the late 50's there was a song called "The All-American Boy". The label said it was recorded by Bill Parsons, but this was a mistake by the record label company. Who really sang the song?

Before we move on to another question, here are some lyrics from the song that might jostle your memory (those that don't remember it):

So I'd pick my gittar
With a great big grin
And the money just kept on pourin' in
But then one day my Uncle Sam
He said (sound of 3 footsteps)
Here I am
Uncle Sam needs you, boy
I'm-a gonna cut your hair
Ah-Take this rifle, kid
Gimme that gittar, yeah

Okay, I guess that one was pretty hard. The answer was Bobby Bare.

Try this one. Murray Wilson, father of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, managed what group after Brian fired him from his leadership role? Hint--It was another surf group and managed a couple of hits in the mid-60s.

I guess these are harder than I thought. The answer was The Sunrays (I Live for the Sun & Andrea).

Maybe this one is easier...For what did ex-Monkee Mike Nesmith win a grammy? (He was the first one to do something)

A not-so-tough one: who replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers?

Right you are. (Mick Fleetwood and Peter McVie, after whom Fleetwood Mac was named, were also in the Bluesbreakers; it took a while to convince McVie to leave, so the first couple of Fleetwood Mac gigs had a different bass player.) Green was a helluva guitarist.

Your turn . . .

This will be too easy for Frampton, but what is the name of the song from the first Fleetwood Mac album, written by Peter Green, that became a major hit two years later for what American group from the Bay Area?

It's gotta be Santana's "Black Magic Woman" cuz I know it was a Fleetwood song. But I looked it up and it's on their 3rd album.

Correct!! That's why you are the king of all rock-n-roll trivia. Technically, Black Magic Woman was a single released right after the first album, but it appears on their third LP (first US LP) English Rose. For bonus points, who is the chick on the cover of English Rose?

"I met a girl who sang the blues."

Who is this allegedly?

I've always heard (and agree) that it refers to Janis Joplin. (Sadly, never got to see her perform live. Festival Express has some great stuff in it, though.)

A rock and roll pioneer died this year, but leaves behind the "beat" named after him. Name him, and a song that uses the beat.

Right you are. LOTS of songs to choose from, those are great examples. (Others are Mona (I like the Quicksilver cover), Who Do You Love.)

Agree on the Quicksilver cover.

What is the name of the group and the name of their song that the Dixie Chicks used to get their name?

Joncon, I had to look up the answer, so won't give it away or pretend to win, but you'll have to tell me which guitarist from that band is your favorite. I hope I know the answer . . .

BTW, I do some volunteer work for Little Feat, they're touring now and are still a great show.

Well...there is only one guitarist from that band....it's named after him.

If you listen you can tell who it is.


When everyone else was listening to Hendrix, Page and Clapton, I was listening to him.

Very understated. His guitar never dominated the music.

Played with the greatest Bass player of all time Stanley Clarke. Freeway Jam, constipated duck. Did some work with Guns N Roses was actually supposed to tour with them blown out ear drums stopped it. Never heard of the guy.
Understated the dude blew the doors off of stadium roofs when I saw him. Heard some demo stuff he did with Guns n Roses nothing understated about it.

Dave I know who he is referring to again here is a youtube of some outrageous stuff with Guns n Roses. Imagine the possiblities. The guy who's name I won't type cause I don't feel like answering, again Joncon understated my ass. 8 minutes of insanity.

Joncon:
Of course, it's Jeff Beck. I think he was the most talented of all the Yardbirds. Also, great work on the Little Feat answer.
Frampton - I'm also a huge Feat Fan, got to hang out backstage with them in May at the Doheny Blues Festival. November 5th, Great American Music Hall in SF, but you probably knew that.

I didn't think the G&R clip was very good.

Jeff Beck's guitar WAS understated......in thet video also. He got in a few licks around the 4 minute mark but it was predominately Slash's guitar playing the same ryhthm part over and over, dominating the jam.

What I always like about him is that he never simply turned up his volume to dominate the music. He was a PART of it.

One of you clowns is up next :)

And.......If any of you do not have the 2 JB Group albums with Rod Stewart as the vocalist (Truth and Beckola),........... get them.

Well, I was referring to Ronnie Wood -- he played bass for Beck (who I agree is a great guitarist), but despite now being a Rolling Stone, isn't near Beck's class.
