*This frontperson of this band took a long, hard road to rock & roll stardom, but when the band broke through in 1979, they wasted no time, growing from promising newcomers on the British music scene to major international stardom with a pair of smash albums to their credit in a mere three years. That meteoric rise came to a crashing halt in 1982 with calamity to a number of band members, forcing a re-invention of the band for their 3rd album in 1984. Name the band and extra credit in naming the leader...
*A track we'll play from 1975 is about a father-daughter relationship. The writer of the song wrote it on the guitar in about 5 minutes in Aspen, Colorado, surrounded by snow-covered mountains. The daughter who penned it wrote it the evening prior to her father's (he was the president of Greyhound Bus Lines) surgery at the Mayo Clinic. Name the artist, her band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*Written by one of the members of this popular American 60's band, this song came to fruition based on a plea by the band's keyboard player for everyone to go home that evening and write some songs. The band's guitarist actually came up with 2 songs (2 of the biggest hits of the band) in about 1 hour. Uniquely, this band split credits equally, so every member was credited on every song. Name the band, and extra credit for the names of the keyboard and guitar players...
*Clive Davis, a renowned American record producer, convinced this artist to record a star-studded comeback album for Arista in 1999....much like he coaxed the artist's idol, Carlo Santana, to revive his career with Supernatural. The problem was that the artist was not willing to fully throw himself into the contemporary mainstream, as Santana did. We'll dig into the album that came out as a result. Name the artist.
