Okay, let's rephrase the question so that Mr. Google can offer his invaluable assistance...

The book title I'm after doesn't actually feature the fictional bluesman's name. It does mention one of the seven deadly sins. The bluesman is called Jefferson.
Does that help any?

Please give your answer. It's not like I had any idea what question to ask when I got the last right answer. In many very meaningful respects, the obligation to set a new question is the price you have to pay to play in the BRB Triv thread.

Well, the Catfish Jefferson part is all too painfully obvious, but I'm dang sure not going to google up the title of the book and have to think of another question! Not today, nosiree!

So that makes at least two of you (not including myself, I already knew) who know the answer, but won't share it with the rest of the class.
Is there a contingency in the rules for this scenario?

OK, OK, OK

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

An easy one.
Which blues man was a major influence on the singing and blues style of an ivory-tickler, whose stage name is synonymous with a character from a well-known (internationally syndicated) cartoon strip and who played for a group, whose followers have a distinctive name for themselves.

Clearly, this is a difficult question.
Some element of clueage might be in order at this point.

Isn't the piano player called Schroeder? Or am I thinking of something else?

Sorry, it's the Xmas cheer!

Right cartoon, wrong character - he isn't one of the main characters, more one that appears irregularly.
The name that the followers of the group have assumed is also something that gardeners do to flowers.

Sounds like we might be talking about Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, The Grateful Dead, and The Deadheads. (Gardeners "head" dead blossoms off of flowers.)

(Note that I still haven't answered the primary question about which bluesman had a great influence on him, though the previously offered answer of Charles Brown would seem reasonable and fitting.)

In which case it would be improper to confirm or deny your guess :lol: :lol: :lol:
