.

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

All are welcome to join at any time during the year.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified Katy Perry last week.

The results after 2 weeks (as of Friday evening – results submitted after that time will be added to next week’s spreadsheet):

.

.

Ready for Quiz #3?

That makes me Happy!

.

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 #3
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..British Guitarist/Songwriter/Occaisional lead vocalist, born in Dartford in 1943.

His solo studio albums include the titles Talk is Cheap (1988) and Main Offender (1992) & he released his memoir, Life, in 2010.

.

.

.

.

.

400 points……………….With his usual group, he doesn’t usually provide lead vocals.

But when he does, such as on tracks like Happy, Before They Make Me Run, or You Got the Silver, one wonders why he doesn’t sing more often…

.

.

.

.

.

300 points……………………Though seeing that over the years, he’s come up with the riffs for Satisfaction / Gimme Shelter / Paint it Black / etc., primarily focusing on the guitar has worked out reasonably well too!

.

.

.

.

.

200 points………………..According to Wayne’s World 2 (and undoubtedly countless other memes suggesting that he’ll outlive us all), Mick Jagger’s songwriting partner cannot be killed by conventional weapons!

.

.

.

.

.

100 points………………..The artist is K_____ R__________

.

.

.

Answer:  كيث ريتشاردز

    300. To be honest, I didn’t even know he had a solo career. Interesting.

    • Life was an interesting bio – though admittedly, I was mostly intrigued about the ’68-’72 albums from his group!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Yeah, I really liked his group’s early work as well.

  2. 300 for sure but suspected earlier

  3. Really like that first clue. Not too obvious but enough data to lock in an answer quickly.

  4. 500 mainly because I managed to read the biography.

  5. 500 each for me and Mika.

  6. 500, although my first thought from the bonus clue was Pharell Williams.

  7. Harrison permalink

    300 please

  8. 300 for me. I have no familiarity with his solo work.

    • It’s funny, I was 11 or so when Eileen came out – so I think I knew who he was through his solo work before learning about his (I guess, somewhat successful) group!

  9. Don’t Take It So Hard Geoff when you have to hand me over 500 smackers! lol. Speaking of which I featured this tune many years ago at the blog. Such a killer opening riff, then again thats what that guy is known for.
    P.S- Proud of myself this week not giving away the artists name in my comments haha

    • You’re off to an exceptional start, Deke! And not accidentally giving away the name in 2 outta 3 weeks, that ain’t bad either!

      • As Meat Loaf sang “Two out of 3 ain’t bad!”

      • Exactly! Hope the renos went well this week, we’ve been having TBay esque temperatures here this weekend!

      • Thanks Geoff. Floors are done…next up is new Furnace/AC/ Water Tank in the next week or two than Front and Back doors along with with a new front window. We are getting there..lol

  10. I’ll take 500 for today’s effort.

  11. Easy peasy for me this time. 500. Can’t stay, I gotta roll like a stone.

  12. Zack permalink

    500. I like his Happy song a lot better than the minion one. (Notice I can’t name that artist. )

  13. Paul permalink

    500 points this week ! Can’t believe he’s almost 80 and still going!

  14. Finally! A 500 for 2022!

  15. 400 for me this week! Getting closer, maybe next week my first max of 2022!

  16. 300. I know one song of his, but you didn’t mention it, lol

  17. 500 please – bit of a fly-by-night wuss if you ask me.

  18. Man, if I didn’t get 500 here…

  19. 300 points please! Listing those songs he wrote with Mick Jagger really helped me because I didn’t know he had a solo career, but I have heard him sing before and he’s not bad as a vocalist.

  20. I’m ready to get back into your muscial genius. yay games!
