New Contest

OK, I've not done this in awhile. Gardengnome won the last one. This contest is for a custom made necklace from my business, Pink Coyote Designs. Who ever answers all the questions the fastest will get the prize. Here goes:

1. Name 4 rock stars who have been killed in air crashes of some kind (helicopters, airplanes, etc.)
2. Name 4 country stars who have been killed in air crashes of some kind.
3. On his ill fated final flight, who gave up their seat on the plane so the "Big Bopper" could fly instead?
4. Name 4 bands Eric Clapton was with before striking out on his own for a solo career.
5. What band was Peter Gabriel a founding member of before going solo?
6. Name the other founding members of that band.
7. Name at least two groups spawned by members of the group YES.
8. Name 4 bands Neil Young has been a member of not counting Crazy Horse. These have to be bands he was actually a member of and not just who he played on one album for or toured with like Pearl Jam.
9. Name 3 bands Steve Winwood has been a member of.
10. Name 4 bands spawned by members of the group King Crimson.
11. What three classic rock stars who died between 1970 and 71 were all 27 when they died? (easy one)

Buddy Holly? Of "Oo-ee-oo, You look just like" fame?

Well allright
Yeah, the Cass Elliot thing is sort of an urban legend.She died of an anuerism. She just happend to be found with a half eaten ham sandwich.

#16 is wrong actually. That's sort of an Urban myth as well. Carly Simon said once that it was a little about Warren Beaty but not really. In subsequent interviews she has declined to say which one person it was actually about. The best answer she has given was that it was an amalgamation of several men she had dated, including Warren beaty, Mick Jagger and James Taylor whom she was married to at the time. Just after it was released, Taylor did take a trip to Nova Scotia to observe some atmospheric phenomena but he didn't fly a Lear Jet.

But you've definitely come closer than anyone one else so I'm declaring you the winner. You will have to tell me what kind of stones you want and if you want a men's or women's necklace. Your choice.

I actually had an original Bowie Diamond Dogs album once but I think the ex got it in the divorce. And has Neil Young been in a helluva lot of bands or what? There were about 16 choices to choose from.

Congratulations!

*whining and pouting like a spoiled brat*
not to mention...
*stoping my foot down and raising my fist defiantly*

Okay.... I've not been able to access Livejournal in ages, been too sick, been too busy...just been, if you know what I mean.

I didn't know you had a contest going on. I didn't even know that cuddles had a contest going on too. So...hmph!

I want a shot at it! If it's too late well then...uhm...... *shrug*

Don't worry, I'm devising another contest as we speak. This one will deal with music of the 80's.
