Ready for Quiz #43?

For the first time in a couple of weeks, it won’t be “The ____ Boys!”


Quiz Rules/Format
(feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

  1. 400 for me. Great clue and being a Skynyrd fan it was easy.

    • My thanks – and listening to Skynyrd (I’ve always enjoyed the lack of regular vowels in the band name) paid off nicely today!

  2. Zack permalink


  3. 500. Keep on rocking in the free world.

  4. 500. A fine harvest of points.

  5. I would be ashamed if I did not achieve 500 I guess there always comes a time and tonights the night.

    • I gather that Rust Never Sleeps and it appears, based on your alertness earning top marks today Neil, that you don’t either!

      • As long as I am not sleeping with angels then time won’t fade away

  6. 500. I was just thinking about this artist!

  7. 400 due to unfair CanConClue and the fact that this Scottish man doesn’t need him around either.

    • Haha, well played HMO!
      I didn’t use to care for him at all but I’ve changed my tune – so I suppose I do require him around these days!

  8. 400 for me this time.

  9. 500 today

  10. Tangled Up In Music permalink


  11. jprobichaud permalink

    400. That factoid in clue number was a good one. Definitely eluded me.

  12. I sell Scott’s books at work all the time. Also, I’m a bit of a fan of this artist, so… boom! 500!

  13. 400 for me! Didn’t even know he was Canadian!

  14. 500 for me this week! Boom!

  15. 500 today. I always enjoyed the dad much more than the son.

  16. 500. Great sideys.

  17. jofrommontreal permalink


  18. 500 Sir Geoff!
    Bachman name drops this person on Rand Mans track Prairie Town

    • Nice work Deke!
      And I think he also played in the ’93 Bachman video for Prairie Town too!

      • That is right he was in the video…
        I posted that album a ways back u had him with the backwards cap and Bachman wearing the creeper shades in the video…hahaha

  19. 500..

    And congratulations?

  20. 500 for the week
