Ready for Quiz #46?

Then let’s begin!


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!

Verbalize the Positive

As for my contribution to the rock debate, I’d say replace OR with AND, problem solved!

    400. Never knew about Mick or Dick.

  2. 500. I don’t know if KR is the lead guitarist – certainly wasn’t when Mick was in the band.

    • Good point – I’m not actually sure if that’s his job description now that you mention it!

  3. 500 and no moss gathered here.

  4. Zack permalink

    400. I’ve never heard of Dick Taylor.

    • I hadn’t either until I was making up the quiz – was surprised to see they’d had such similar band member names (but not at the same time)!

  5. 500. I agree with John. While they’re thoroughly enjoyable and important, they’re not in the same class as John Paul George and Ringo.

  6. 500 luckily – I wouldn’t have got it from any of the other clues.

  7. 500 smackers for this fellow! Exile on Deke Street!

    • Haha – one of my favourite double LPs, the Deke street remix!
      And at 500 points, no sympathy for the Deke this week 😀

      • HAHAHA…i’m on roll the last couple of weeks!

  8. I shall collect 500 this week, Geoff.

  9. Rachelle permalink


  10. I’m not taking the Mick, I got 500 this week.

  11. 500 so fast it oughta be 1000.

  12. 500. What a pretty thing.

  13. 500, though I wasn’t real confident about it

  14. Quickest 500 I’ve gotten yet! Yay! Grew up w them, were my favourite band when I was 12 or so, still love ’em…

  15. 500 points! There’s an argument that the Mick Taylor years were their best.

  16. 500! Been a while since I’ve gotten one of those!

  17. 300 this round!

  18. 100. I thought that mick Taylor was no relation to the Mick Taylor I knew about and that threw me right off. Oops!

  19. 500 for me

  20. Busy yesterday so a day late. 300 points

    • Not to worry Chris – I think it was actually the guitarist of this band that coined the phrase, the later the greater!

  21. 500 for the week

  22. jofrommontreal permalink

    300! Yeah, unique moves
