*This song was written by one of the group's band members and is a nostalgic piece about his childhood, and while it dates him, it is pretty much right-on in terms of images from his childhood...The Howdy Doody show, collecting baseball cards and comic books. The group and song comes early in tonight's show...
*This American artist (born in Virginia) burst on to the international music scene in 1986, with fresh songs, excellent piano chops and a terrific backing band. His debut album received world wide acclaim, but by the mid-1990's, this artist broke up the band to pursue a wider spectrum of music. Name the artist and debut album...
*This artist has apparently seen and done most of it...whatever 'it' involves. In his case, 'it' translates into romance with a fellow great artist, inspiring a character in a classic 1969 film, serving 9 months in a Texas state prison, receiving a liver transplant, paid for by a great friend and fellow artist and becoming the biological father for two children. Any guesses on just who this might be?
*The Righteous Brothers came out with a song that many consider, a most important contribution to music culture. Coming up with the song is not that difficult, but deducing who came up with what is believed to be the top 5 covers of that very song...well, congrats to you if you know. We'll play the #1 version. Any guesses on the artists in that group of 5? Extra credit for guessing the #1 cover group/artist...
