The late Clarence Clemons, aka The Big Man, tenor sax player for Springsteen's E Street Band
is correct.

so to speak as he comes up with Mac Rebennack who chose the persona
of John Creaux, the Night Tripper later to be known as Dr. John, the Night Tripper.

I have read that two of Dr. John's biggest fans were none other than Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger. Just think if Lennon/McCartney would also have been fans they could have dedicated " Day Tripper" to the Night Tripper.

It appears my latest trivia quiz has now exceeded it's shelf life. I've completed
the remaining 5 unanswered questions and they are listed on post # 3080.

Glad Bevo is back, but sorry to hear of his computer problems. Hopefully, he can eventually join in on this quiz. It's one of our traditional, old-fashioned trivia quizzes: hoops and music. As usual, there is NO GOOGLING and only THREE GUESSES are permitted. After the update on Sunday morning, more guesses will be allowed.

1. Marvin "Bad News" Barnes, Providence (coldshoulder)
2. Zelmo Beatty
3. Mel Daniels
4. Connie Hawkins
5. Artis Gilmore
6. Doug Moe
7. Larry Kenon
8. Lary Jones
9. Billy Knight, Pitt (coldshoulder)
10. Spencer Haywood

Extra-Credit
A. Although he never played college basketball, at what school did Roger Brown sign a letter-of-intent before being banned for alleged point-shaving charges?

Lyrics - Identify the 1960s' songs in which these lyrics appeared:

11. How could they know just what this message means...
12. The six o'clock alarm would never ring... "Daydream Believer", The Monkees (EagleGuy)
13. I know I stand in line until you think you have the time to spend an evening with me...
14. I was out choppin' cotton, and my brother was balin' hay...
15. Hey, what's that sound... "For What It's Worth", Buffalo Springfield (EagleGuy with help from coldshoulder)
16. Imagine me and you, I do... "Happy Together", The Turtles (coldshoulder)
17. And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all...
18. People in motion, people in motion...
19. There beneath the blue suburban skies... "Penny Lane", The Beatles (EagleGuy)
20. Through the mirror of my mind...

Extra-Credit
B. When we called out for another drink the waiter brought a tray...

Given Names - Identify the stage name of each of the following artists:

21. George O'Dowd, Boy George (Zunardo)
22. Patricia Andrzejewski, Pat Benetar (Zunardo)
23. Virgina Hensley
24. Stuart Goddard
25. Vincent Furnier
26. David Van Cortlandt
27. Dan Seals, England Dan (Zunardo)
28. Cherilyn Sarkisian

30. Brian Warner

Extra-Credit

OWK,

Lyrics - Identify the 1960s' songs in which these lyrics appeared:

11. How could they know just what this message means...
12. The six o'clock alarm would never ring... Daydream Believer, Monkees
13. I know I stand in line until you think you have the time to spend an evening with me...
14. I was out choppin' cotton, and my brother was balin' hay...
15. Hey, what's that sound... Hey Children, WTS, Buffalo Springfield
16. Imagine me and you, I do...
17. And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all...
18. People in motion, people in motion...
19. There beneath the blue suburban skies... Penny Lane, of course, Beatles
20. Through the mirror of my mind...

I think the group will do well (or, is it good - haha) with this section. I recognize a few others, but either don't know the song or group or both!

BTW, The Beatles >>> The Monkees

1. Marvin "Bad News"Barnes -- Providence

9. Billy Knight -- Pitt

16. So Happy Together -- The Turtles

...And technically (I think), the correct song title to #15 is "For What It's Worth"

We got off to a pretty good start on Saturday night. EagleGuy, Zunardo and coldshoulder all posted answers to the latest trivia quiz (below).

Everyone has THREE MORE GUESSES on Sunday, but still NO GOOGLING.

EagleGuy
12. The six o'clock alarm would never ring... "Daydream Believer", The Monkees
15. Hey, what's that sound... Hey Children, WTS ("For What It's Worth", assist from coldshoulder), Buffalo Springfield
19. There beneath the blue suburban skies... "Penny Lane", The Beatles

Zunardo
21. George O'Dowd - Boy George
22. Patricia Andrzejewski - Pat Benatar
27. Dan Seals - England Dan

coldshoulder
1. Marvin "Bad News"Barnes, Providence
9. Billy Knight, Pitt
16. "So Happy Together", The Turtles
*also an assist for correctly naming "For What It's Worth", #15.

The above answers have all been reflected on the original post, #3099.

ROCK ON!
