*We'll go back to a fantastic 1994 solo album by this artist for a track with a general musical feel and mood that is a striking reflection of Buffalo Springfield's work, most notably Stephen Stills "Go And Say Goodbye". Sure the melody is different but the chord progression and overall vibe is strikingly similar and beautiful. The song is aptly named considering the lyrics...it's not just about a relationship but of life's road and challenges.
This artist is no longer with us (since 2017)...but you certainly know him. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the album and the song...
*A track written and released by this band's lead guitarist in 1976 is rumored to be about suicide, but it actually deals with the inevitability of death and the belief that we should not be afraid of it. The artist was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat causing him to think about his morality, but is still with us today at the ripe young age of 75. Name the band, the lead guitarist and the name of the song...
*This band's #1 hit from 1967 was written by a friend of the band from Chicago (the city, not the band). Although the band did have 5 charting hits (they all uniquely happened in the same year 1967) the track we'll enjoy turned out to be their only #1. But with all those charting hits that year, Billboard Magazine declared them 'the most listened to band of the year'! Shortly thereafter, they fell off the musical map. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the #1 hit...
*For a musician known to strive for authenticity, this artist has always been curiously obsessed with appearances, seemingly as interested in sartorial details and hairstyles every bit as much as perfect guitar licks. It' difficult to find two photographs of him from the 1960s and early '70s that appear to be the same person. His solo career saw him switching his looks frequently. A 2001 solo album featured a picture of him as a child. Name the artist...
