* In 2001, this artist had pretty much done it all...but this album pretty much blended all of those styles in extraordinary fashion. He had help combining blues and pop coming in the form of Billy Preston and The Impressions with their excellent contributions. Name the artist...extra credit for the name of the album...
*Do you know the names of all three members of the band America? One member in particular was born in Panama City, Florida, had a short stint in Pakistan before ending up in London where he met the other two members and formed the band. He was the major influence in the group (although they all played key roles) with his singing and songwriting skills. He passed at the age of 60 just about 10 years ago. Name the artist...extra credit for the names of the other 2 as well...
*Very cool fact...one of our regular listeners was hitchhiking in a freezing blizzard in Pennsylvania and finally got a lift...on the tour bus of America...name revealed later today...
*The last track on this band's first album in 1969 is a searing song about a man who has been betrayed by his woman to the point where he feels like he's helpless...even awaiting more punishment. The bandmember writer of the track, wrote it on an ironing board using burnt matches as he couldn't find a pen in the middle of the night when he got the inspiration. Name the band and the song...extra credit for the songwriter's name...
*We'll play a track about a very seductive woman with expensive tastes that she uses men to satisfy. Much like the line, "Her mind is Tiffany twisted" in the Eagles son, 'Hotel California', the lyrics to this song use a luxury brand to develop the character as she is described as "a she-cat tamed by the purr of a Jaguar". referring to the high-end automobile. This 1982 track spent 4 weeks at #1 in America and was the biggest hit of the '80's to feature a saxophone solo...
Name the band and the song...
