*This artist played high school football in Texas, but due to his relatively small build his coach suggested that he quit and opted for the high school band instead. Starting with the trombone, he moved to the percussion section. He has had a storied career with a legendary band and as a solo artist. Who is he?
*We'll play a great 'cover' of a song written by this famous singer-songwriter who wrote the song to celebrate the birth of his daughter. It has appeared in the soundtrack of various movies and television shows as well. Oddly enough, the song got its highest charting ever when it was sung by the cast of the TV series "Glee' in 2011.
Who wrote it and extra credit for correctly identifying the song.
*Credence Clearwater Revival was influenced on this R&B song based on the version Ray Charles delivers on his 1960 LP, Ray Charles In Person. John Fogerty regards that body of work as an all-time greatest live album. The song was the last track of CCR on an album in 1969. Name the song.
*In all the time of existence of the Billboard Hot 100, one song became the first-ever single in US history to enter the Hot 100 at the top spot...numero uno! The anticipation for it alone...was the reason. In a video promoting the track, the artist and his wife make an appearance...both topless. And that just may have been one of the things that led to the couple's divorce a year later. Name the artist and song.
