Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on August 23 , 2020 Show #93
* Back in the 60's there were a couple of wandering saxophone players doing whatever was trendy in order to make a living as musicians. They played surf rock, acoustic folk and backup for The Coasters, Sonny & Cher and The Righteous Brothers at various times. Enter the British invasion and these guys had formed an American band called The Crosswind Singers, but they renamed themselves to pass as British singers. Their 1st single with the new group name was a Bob Dylan song. Name the band and extra credit for the two artist's names.
*This artist wrote a song for his band with a reference to a zip code from the return address of a female fan, who happened to be in the Indianapolis area. Wondering if the fan ever made the connection when hearing the track. Name the artist, the band and extra credit for the name of the song.
*Following the release of this band's final album and a grueling 15 month tour of Europe, North America and Australia, this artist quietly dissolved the group in 1992. Why end something so successful? It took this artist almost 2 years to recover some peace and a grip on reality before launching into a solo career. We'll get into his 1st solo album in 1996. Name the band and the artist.
*This artist was and always will be a Nashville, National and International treasure. His fan base felt like they lost a family member at his recent passing. His fans are also pretty generally known as the kind of people who played his music for other people. The vibe, the music, the lyrics...the complete package. Name the artist.
