The Never-Ending Music Quiz.
« on: December 29, 2008, 05:40:42 AM »
Ok here's the deal! The way this works is that one person asks a music related question. The next person answers this question and also asks the next question Get it?? Please no googling!! Feel free to be as diverse and know-it-allish as you want!

Ok, I'll start. Who played drums for The Who for their Live Aid performance in 1985?

Okay, I love the game idea, AltonDalton.  But if you aren't going to let us google, then I'm just stuck.  Anyone know the answer here?

I dont think it is even a question.

But I will have a guess, A drumming gorilla (for Cadbury chocolate here in the UK theydid and advert where they had a man in a gorilla suit drumming to 'In The Air Tonight' and Phil Collins was supposed to be in the suit)

I think googling should be an option but as long as you say if you googled or didnt!

Who sang with Elton John on 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart'?

OK - I don't know the answer to that question, but let me interject a suggestion, which I used myself for the "carry on the lyric game".  Start a reply and type in your answer.  Then open up another browser and use that to check the answer with Google, @u2 lyrics, whatever.  If you are right, finish your original reply.  If you are wrong, delete it without submitting (just hit "back" to return to the thread).  That way we don't have incorrect guesses cluttering up the thread, but we each restrict ourselves to ethically playing the game.

Ok, back to the game.

Almost! Just take out John and Chad.

They didn't join until 1988.

Ringo Starr?  Am I right?  I can't verify it anywhere.

If I am, then here's my question:  Name of the Beatles' original drummer?
