BigRoad Trivia- December 2006

I hope I'm not breaking any rules by not waiting for Bosco. Here goes.

In the early 70s three brothers from California formed a blues band that was named after their father. They were 20, 18 and 15 years old when they formed this band. Who are they and what was their band called?

The Charles Ford Band?

Robben, Patrick and Mark Ford have all gone on to make names for themselves individually.

You're not breaking any rules DC...I appreciate the help. We lost power and cable yesterday from the ice storm so I couldn't get online.

That's pretty good Stumbles...I'll have to pass that one on to some of the locals. :wink:

OK- Name the blues icon that recorded for these record labels in this order-

El-Bee, Federal, Cotillion, Shelter and RSO.

Bit of a stretch, depending on your tastes I gues, but Eric Clapton?

Freddy it is, Mick. Shane, you were warm, as EC is a noted disciple of Mr. King.

Go for it, Mick.

When I started listening to Freddy King, I realized that's who EC was singing like. He's really modeled himself after Freddy, I think. He picked a good role model for blues!

Eric has publicly stated he owes a much of what he does to Freddy King. Whatever else people can or can't say about him, he can't be accused of dishonesty in this respect.

The trivia - this time I'll try Lightnin Hopkins.

Quick and easy.............

Tis said that one time RJ played on one side of the Sun Flower river while his student manned the other bank. The folks from Clarksville milling about the bridge that night couldn't tell which was RJ and which was the student. Who be the lucky cat that learned so well from the master?
