FLOWERS AND QUESTIONS AND A QUOTE



Continuing with a monthly quiz I started back in June, after finding an old trivia book while cleaning up.    

1.  The Quarrymen included the nucleus of what well-known rock band?

2.  What were The Who called before they were The Who?

3.  Which member of the Grateful Dead inspired an ice cream flavor?

4.  What is the name of the only Broadway show tune recorded by the Beatles?

5.  What recording company released the first recordings of Elvis Presley?

Answers will be in tomorrow’s post.

  7. Oh dear, the only thing here, I was "into," was Elvis when he first started. Had a summer romance, with a gorgeous Elvis-look-wanna-be, and he introduced me, to him. ~smmmile~ Fun summer!!!!!!!!!!

    But #3. There is/was a VT ice cream, called some sort of "Garcia" and I guess that's the answer to #3.

    And #2... 'The Who'... I got to know Roger Daltry, when he had a great recurring part, in "Highlander, The Series"... A long running tv series. ~smile~

    One had to remember, that I am 83! ~grrrrin~
