* This artist's first band, The Monarchs, formed when he was just 15. By the age of 19, he was already a vastly experienced performer and recording artist, playing guitar, keyboards, sax and singing. With his father's vast collection of jazz, blues and R&B, his band released a cover of the Delta Blues classic, Baby, Please Don't Go, inspired by John Lee Hooker's 1949 version. The 'B' side turned out to be even more popular. Name the artist and extra credit for the song title.
*A couple of folk singers in Los Angeles were performing one night in a coffee house in 1970 and in the dressing room, had some time, so they just started jamming, entertaining themselves. They got together the next day to some picking and started back with what they were messing with the previous night. An hour later, they had this song, considered their only hit. They had no idea it would become a big hit or released as a single, but it did. Name the duo (after their last names) and extra credit for the name of the track.
*This famous artist recorded a track that was influenced by art classes he was taking with a popular teacher, Norman Raeben in New York. It made him look at things from a 'nonlinear' perspective, something reflected in his songs. The artist introduces this track on stage by saying it took 'Ten years to live and two years to write.' Name the artist and extra credit for the name of the song...
*This artist grew up in London, where open spaces were rare..children got little exposure to open air. In 1970 he read a story about how green spaces were vanishing in towns and it prompted him to write this song as a reminder that progress shouldn't come at the expense of nature. Name the artist and of course, extra credit for the name of the song...
