*Sheryl Goddard is a dancer who was born in 1957, a profession she remains active in even today. She has also been married to an artist for over 40 years. That artist, Vincent Damon Furnier, is better known by his stage name.
He'll be singing the cover of a great song...a kind of tribute to his wife. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*We'll enjoy a track first recorded by a R&B group in 1967 by the name of Soul Brothers Six. The version we'll enjoy comes from a band from the Midwest that listened to a station (call letters WAMM) that played R&B, gospel and soul music, primarily from black artists. The drummer of this band (a great 70's kind of band) got the rest of the band pumped up to record it after hearing it on WAMM. It kind of became the group's go-to sing along song whenever they'd take long car rides. They made it a huge hit. Name the band that recorded it in 1975 and extra credit for the name of the track...
*A great artist who was born in 1938, passed away in 2013. His style was a loose, cross-genre mix of blues, rockabilly, country and jazz influences. By the year 1970, he was very frustrated with the music business as he had not caught a break, but along comes this great British artist who recorded a great track that was written by the man who would become his great friend and future collaborator. The recording of one of the artist's songs was the break he needed to sustain a very comfortable musical career going forward. So much to guess here. Name the artist, the musician who recorded the song that put him on the map and extra credit for the name of the song. While we won't be playing that particular song...we'll play a collaboration between the two...most excellent...
*We'll play a song by a band that had major success and considerable problems that led to a shakeup of personnel. A great album in 1977 clearly had the group on a roll, but the success was met with an ultimate downside. The band's founder and leader took a break from the band's next album in 1979 to start performing solo gigs and it was during that period he had a fatal heart attack. The band reeling...disbanded. We'll go to a track from the re-formed band. Name the band and the fallen member...
