* This artist spent 53 years on this earth...unless he is back under the guise of someone else...and I wouldn't put it past him. He is a 'You either love him or hate him' kind of musician...but do not doubt his musical genius. He has been known to hire complete orchestras just to play music he's written...simply for his own consumption and satisfaction. My utmost congrats if you name the artist...
*The track we'll play is about people who run governments, and how they should be responsible for initiating harmony amongst themselves, just as blue-collar workers do. And men who hold high places...Must be the ones to start to mold a new reality. Name the band (that folks can't fathom is 3 people) and the song...oh...and the track...is from 1977...
*We'll dip into this artist's most lauded album from 1975 for the track considered the absolute 'sleeper' of that great album. The artist described the body of work his, 'divorce album'. The song itself is the sound of waking up from a dream and realizing your soul mate has just slipped through your fingers. Name the artist (a musical pioneer) and extra credit for the name of the song...
*The lead singer of this band's real name is Reginald Ball, but he changed his last name to a more familiar musical moniker. For his band, he wrote this song in about 10 minutes and was inspired by the Joy Strings Salvation Army Band he saw on TV. The song was a far cry from their previous hit...a song that was the stadium entry song for Ricky Vaughn of Major League fame...Name the singer's stage name, extra credit for the song...oh...and extra credit for the name of their big hit...
