2021 Artists of the Week (so far):

Bruno Mars


My thanks to all who have participated in the “Artist of the Week” quizzes so far.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified Bruno Mars last week.

The results after 1 week (as of Monday evening – results submitted after that time will be added to next week’s spreadsheet):



Ready for Quiz #2?

One time a thing occurred to me!


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!


Artist of the Week #2
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..American band from San Diego, featuring the DeLeo brothers at the Core of the group.

They don’t have any albums on the 1001 list, although the 12 Gracious Melodies from their 1994 album, Purple, perhaps ought to be!






400 points……………….In the ’90s, they had a string of terrific singles with their original lead singer, the late Scott Weiland, including Big Bang Baby, Sour Girl, and Plush.

Alternatively, as a bonus puzzle clue for all you sports &/or gas fireplace enthusiasts…






300 points……………………The group name, seemingly created by a Random Band Name Generator, contains 3 parts, as shown in the word puzzle below:







200 points………………..Or as the solution to yet another word puzzle!






100 points………………..The artist is S_____ T_______ P______





Answer: الطيارين معبد حجر

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!


Verbalize the Positive

The lounge-singer-esque secret song on Purple, an all-timer!

From → Uncategorized

  1. 500. Not really a fan, so I don’t know how I know the guitarist and bassist surnames.

  2. 400 by a fluke.

  3. Harrison permalink

    200 please

  4. 500 each for me and Mika. Purple is one of my most listened to albums ever.

  5. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me. Never been a big fan so I don’t know the core, but I do know the lead singer.

  6. 500, good band 👌

  7. 500 for me! Great band! My brother in law has engineered/mixed numerous albums by them and toured with them as well

  8. 300 for me today.

  9. 500 easy. They put on a hell of a concert, back in the day!

    • I only saw Velvet Revolver alas – but he still was a formidable frontman with them as well!

      • Absolutely. We saw them open for the Stones on Voodoo Lounge at the Ex in 1994. Deke was at the same show as me (we didn’t know of each other then). That was the second album, Purple or whatever it’s called. Interstate Love Song and all that. I remember they pulled a couch out onto the stage mid-set and did a couple of acoustic songs. Fun stuff. And we were 35th row center on the floor, saw it all perfectly!

      • At an acoustic Fairport Convention concert, the musicians were seated in chairs. Dave Pegg quipped that those were their acoustic chairs—-better than the alternative. 🙂

  10. 500 smackers, now where is my Meatplow?

  11. 500 points please. And I’ll give you a Pretty Penny in change

  12. 500! All of the albums I have from them are $2 mission thrift grabs!

  13. I’ll take 500 for J’s Favourite Band, Geoff!

  14. 400! That one clue…at its core…caught me, but I didn’t “clue in” until 400…

  15. 400 points, flying by the seat of my pants over worshipful rocks 🙂

  16. I enjoyed the victory while it lasted…I didn’t get any points this time. It’s ok, I’m happy to participate in these quizzes as usual.

    • I’m hoping you earn a 500 on the last week of the year as well, Lana – having a start & end with a perfect score seems like the way to go, the weeks in between are just details!

      • I guess you’re right; staring and ending on a high note seems like a good way to go. But again, I’m happy to participate in the quizzes because I learn something new every time!

      • That’s the best attitude to have, Lana – happy to participate & learn, regardless of the scores!

      • Absolutely and the quizzes are fun! By the way, I can’t wait for the next one!

  17. I’m taking home 500 points here, Geoff!

    • I’m relieved, J – every week, there’s a person I look to in order to verify the accuracy of my clues. If you hadn’t earned 500 this week for this artist, something was wrong with my clues!

  18. 500 and I’ll keep my views on them to myself!

  19. Paul permalink

    300 – couldn’t place the name til the word clues, better score than last week. 🙂 Not sure if there are other Paul’s on list, but if you want to refer to me as Paul S. that’s fine (better than Paul (blog). 🙂 but if pain to change no problem.

  20. 400 this week, please, Steven! Not the most successful 2021 so far in quiz-land…but tracking along!
