I'm 29 and missed 4 of them...
1) I haven't watched even reruns of the lone ranger for over 20 years!
7) D'oh! how could I get that wrong??
8) sure, I recognise the name now...
10) I could almost picture the hobo, but had no clue as to the name.

13) there were more killed in that crash, right? I always thought it was about all of them?

ah ha! Ritchie Valens, right?

Chad, who has a bunch of useless knowledge in his cranium too...

And the Big Bopper, don't forget Mr. "HEL-looooooo, bayyyyyybeh..."

RedTail    Posted 12-01-2004 at 11:18:44       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yep , "the three men I admire most"

Holly, Valens and teh Bopper. Ok but who was it he met in the line "i met a girl who sang the blues, she asked me for some happy news"?

Melanie    Posted 12-01-2004 at 12:16:35       [Reply]  [No Email]
I want to guess Janis Joplin, because she's the only gal from that era who "sang the blues" on the rock n' roll scene. Did I get it?

Melanie    Posted 12-01-2004 at 13:54:15       [Reply]  [No Email]
Did I get it? Or was it like Billie Holiday?

Melanie    Posted 12-01-2004 at 02:36:55       [Reply]  [No Email]
Aw, blew it on #10 and #14 (unless you count "Stolichnaya" as a valid answer there. Heh.)
And, while I may not be in that age group, I am a pop culture trivia buff. :)
