Song Quiz from Craig Looney’s Looney’s Tunes live show on September 6, 2021 Show #146
* This band hailed from Calgary, Alberta, Canada starting out in 1964 with the name...The Rebounds. They changed their lineup and had numerous name changes until 1971 when they released their only Top 40 hit in the US. They had much greater success in Canada with 6 other songs cracking the Canadian top 10 six times. The song features a banjo as a primary instrument. Name the band and extra credit for the name of the song...
*One of the most spontaneous origins for a song came courtesy of Randy Bachman who was playing a show when he broke a guitar string...putting a stop to the show until he could replace the string. The band left the stage while he replaced it and he used the piano to tune. As he did, he ventured into a riff that got the complete attention of the audience. He took the riff and finished it into this classic song by The Guess Who. Name the song...
*Ray Davies wrote a great number of songs for this (his) band. Their first album contained the single, You Really Got Me and was followed up with All Day And All Of The Night. When it came time to write songs for their next album, Davies was running out of ideas, but remembered a track he'd written while being a student at Hornsey School of Art in London. They did record it and it became a big hit. The group is obvious, but name the song that he resurrected from his school days...
*This artist's musical career is kind of (or alot of) synonymous with his early band...a group that was elected into the Rock And Roll HOF in 2000. The band started to implode after a marijuana drug bust (the artist was not part of the bust) and this artist went on to a semi-successful solo career as the band could not recover from the bust and resulting publicity. Name the artist and his band...
