*This 1975 album was a turning point for this band, their last before their lead singer left due to health problems. Enter a new soul-influenced singer, who led the band into a more pop, rock direction...one that increased the range of listeners the band enjoyed and propelled them to more than 40,000,000 albums sold. Name the band and extra credit if you can name the old lead singer and the new lead singer...
*There have been a number of songs in rock history based on the rigors of concert tours. This great 1973 track represents more than a few of the pitfalls of the road. One such problem for this band was that the namesake leader and songwriter found it most difficult to write while on the road. He had so many other responsibilities while touring, he just couldn't find the time. They basically had to cease touring to allow their leader to write new music. This American band had staying power over quite a few decades. Name the singer/songwriter/leader of the band and go ahead and name the band as well...
*We'll play a track that is actually an anti-war song. The song recognizes people on both sides ...their own and those of the enemy. It refers to self-righteous behavior, it uses chess terms to describe war, claiming that war is very much like a game of chess and then addresses the value of the queen. 1973 was the year. Name the band and song...
*Is being a famous rock star overrated? This artist thought so. He once stated that the best perk was the fact that he was usually assured a great table at any restaurant of his choice...that can be convenient. John Lennon helped write this song, coming up with the title and also singing background parts in a high voice. Released in 1975, name the artist, and the one-word song title...
