1.This band broke up late in the year of 1967, shortly after recording this album. The album sold poorly, but a single released from it became a huge hit in the US, even though the group had disbanded and couldn't support it
Any guesses who the group and what that song might be?
2.This American 'arena rock' band started in the late 60's with their 1st album released in 1969. It didn't sell well at the time, but their 1st single released from it got some traction. Their 2nd album, however, took them to new heights, even dragging up sales of their 1st album. We'll go to that 1st single this evening...
3.The 23rd studio album of this legendary artist had a significant list of contributors on the album. We're going to dip into one of the songs from that album...one that is played in the end credits of the 1992 action film, Lethal Weapon 3.
4.This famous artist had a long solo career, but also a short tenure in what today, might be called, a 'supergroup'
But back in the early days of his popularity, he had a couple of famous acts open for him. One performer that did just that was Elvis Presley. The other famous group opened for and toured with him in 1963. Name the headliner and the opening group...

1.It became common practice for companies to use rock music in advertising campaigns and this was one of the leading songs to hold such a distinction. Microsoft paid $10 Million for the use of this one..
2.Father Edward Flanagan founded Boys Town in Omaha, NE in 1917. The motto of Boys Town became a title for a song that was originally offered (and turned down) by Joe Cocker. Another group made it one of their biggest hits ever..
3.This artist was bemoaning how difficult his life was while getting treatment for drug addiction and bulimia in 1990. To get out of his bubble, he started doing things by himself...making his own phone calls, booking his own hotel rooms and got a dog to take care of...He wrote a song about it. Who was the artist and song?
4.This artist got the inspiration for a new album a few days after the 9/11 attacks, when a stranger in a car stopped next to him, rolled down his window and said, "We need you now!" Who was the artist and album?
