*This artist, born in Indianapolis in 1952...he moved to Nashville at the age of 18 to get started on his music career. It all started with him writing songs for other artists, but that ultimately led him to start writing and recording music for himself that has turned into 5+ decades of great music. Name the artist...
*After spending the better part of the 1980's as a solo acoustic troubadour, this co-founder of a great American band from the 60's, landed a contract for a solo album with Arista Records at the turn of the 1990's. The album features the artist's trademark Rickenbacker 12-string guitar and some extra special contributors that included Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, David Crosby and Chris Hillman. Name the artist and the band he co-founded in the 60's...
*After a remarkable string of hits through 1969, this band released its fourth album in less than 18 months. Very prolific! The album became a hot seller (consistent with the previous 3) consisting primarily of songs written by some of rock music's best, but as yet unheralded, composers. For example, the track we'll play was written by Paul Williams and Roger Nichols that was released in 1970, both on the album and as a single. Much to solve here. Name the band
and true extra credit if you know the name of the album and the track we'll play...
*Song inspirations come from good times and bad times. This artist wrote this song in 1967 during one of those 'bad times'. He was arguing with his girlfriend about her cooking to the point where her anger led to throwing pots and pans and storming out to a friend's house for a day or two. When she returned, the artist had written this song for her. Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
