Ready for Quiz #34?

The time to hesitate is through!

.

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, 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. 500. He tossed all his ballads in the circular file.

  2. 200 for me. 100 shows at the garden? I didn’t realise anyone could have done that

  3. 500. I think I heard him denying responsibility for the recent forest fires here in Sweden.

  4. That opening number (aka ‘clue’) is fantastic. Burned me up, it did.
    500

  5. Oof 200 for me, not a big fan…
    Milo.

  6. I’ve listened to that album, sadly didn’t remember the financial advice. So 300 points

  7. 500. Love the graph. Everything should always have a graph.

    Ooooooh. Maybe it’s my slow vacay life having an affect on my brain. Maybe it’s the sound of the crashing waves of Lake Ontario. Or maybe it’s just that I don’t really know this artist. A measly 200 for me.

  9. 400 Sir and remember what our parents taught us!
    Don’t throw stones at Glass Houses!

  10. Zack permalink

    300

  11. 400 for me just cause I know he had played there loads. That 500 question is a complete mystery though im afraid.

  12. 300 for me.

  13. 400 for me, Geoff!

  14. 500! 👍

  15. 500 each for me and Mika. My second-ever concert!

  16. 500! Just started listening to his albums. Wouldn’t have gotten far before our trip to Montreal.

    • Nice work Kevin – and I have to get caught up on posts this week, I’ll be interested to see which investments you made in/on the way to Montreal!

  17. 400, math always confuses me but the graphs are so pretty.

  18. 200 for me. I don’t like the man since watching the ‘Sidemen’ documentary.

    • I’ve heard that from multiple reliable sources – that both the documentary was likeable and that this artist was less so after watching!

  19. Haha I loved the clue at 500. That’s my score!
