BRB Trivia- March 2006

A discussion of the blues for blues lovers and fans.

BRB Trivia- March 2006

Postby bosco » Wed Mar 01, 2006 3:03 pm

Welcome to March! To rejuvenate some interest, I've dug up the original trivia rules from October 1st, 2002, when I started this thread. You'll notice there are NO rules concerning Google-

**************************************************

Interested? Sure you are or you wouldn't be here. The rules are simple. A question is posed by form of clues for a blues related trivia subject. Guesses/answers are then posted to try and answer the question. When it is answered correctly, the question poster will post verification and relinquish the turn. The member who correctly answered will then have 72 hours to post the next question. If he/she does not respond in the allotted time, they will defer and anyone may post the next question. Please do not post the same answer someone else has as only the earliest post will be considered.

FAQ:

* Why 72 hours?
-Not everyone visits the board everyday. If you have posted the question, please check the board as often as possible to address guesses and expedite play.

* Are additional clues OK?
-That is up to the descretion of the question poster. If several days have passed and a correct answer has not been submitted, please consider posting additional clues to keep the game moving.

* What are the topics?
-Anything related to blues. As we all know, blues can have a very broad definition. Please, nothing so obscure that it normally would not be discussed on this board. Popular topics are blues Artists, Record Labels, Songs, Instruments, Equipment, History and Events.

The Trivia thread will be restarted each month to make it easier to find the current question and keep each thread shorter. Have Fun !!!

***********************************************

Up first this month is Hashtaff, have at it mate.

Tried all of that bro, still no dice. I've come up with a lot of similarities but no real connection...

They all existed roughly 1966 to 1970. They all played at the famed Marquee Club in London. They were all in the Nationl Jazz and Blues Festival, but all in different years near as I can tell.

Getting close?

This pre-war Blues artist didn't leave many sides, but they reveal an exceptional talent - powerful guitar playing, stunning voice and attitude to spare. Check out the last verse from one of her recordings:

I'm gonna cut your throat baby, look down in your face
I'm gonna cut your throat baby, look down in your face
Let some lonesome graveyard be your resting place

For the whole pita, give me her name and her female guitar playing partner's.

I bought the Crumb soundtrack after hearing that song in the movie. Then I bought a Yazoo compilation that has all of Wiley's known sides.

This living legend blues guitarist played with one of the most important postwar Chicago blues artists, who was a father figure to him. One night, after being publicly humiliated by his bandleader, he had a revelation which gave him a new guitar sound. Who is he and what did he do to change his playing style?

Howlin Wolf told Hubert Sumlin to put away the flatpick, he followed Wolf's advice and came up with one of the most unique and idiosyncratic modern electric blues guitar styles on record.
