*One of the most excellent stars of the rock & roll era, this artist evaded easy categorization throughout an epic career, operating as one the artsiest within the mainstream and the most accessible musician on the fringe. Was 13 years old when he began performing and started by learning to play the saxophone. Name the artist...
*This band started a record company in 1967 with a plan that all the members had a chance to produce outside artists. The first group signed was Redwood, a group formed by friend (Danny Hutton) of one such band member. Hutton, who, up until that time, was best known for the 1965 hit, 'Roses And Rainbows'. Redwood would go on to change their name to Three Dog Night. 2 years later, the song was resurrected by the band who owned the studio and released with a new title. Name the band and extra credit for the new name of the song...
*This quite successful American band's first single was released in 1973. Their manager had them share a house with full concentration efforts dictated to write songs for their first album.. One such song had been worked off and on for about 6 years as the band's leader chose to write it in bits and pieces. The rest of the band finally helped him put it together. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the track...
*After spending the better part of the 1980's as a solo acoustic troubadour, this artist landed a contract for a solo album with Arista records at the turn of the 1990's. He enlisted some powerful artists to assist...Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, David Crosby and Chris Hillman. The album turned out to be a big success and sounds even a bit like a Tom Petty offering. Name the artist...
