Ready for Quiz #18?

Every single one of us!

.

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 #18
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..Australian band, formed in 1977, originally known as “The Farriss Brothers.”

Though the original band name may have been apt (given that the group featured Jon / Andrew / Tim Farriss), prior to his death in 1997, most fans would likely say the lead singer was the most recognizable member of the group…

.

.

.

.

.

400 points……………….and following Michael Hutchence’s death, the band did not entirely Disappear.

Instead, in the mid-2000s, they embraced the New Sensation of Reality Television, and selected their new lead singer based on the results of a Rock Star Talent Competition.

300 points……………………I hope you have good (J.D.) Fortune with puzzle clue #1:

.

.

200 points………………..Or at the very least, I hope you get a Kick out of Puzzle clue #2:

.

.

100 points………………..The artist is (9th letter of the alphabet)(14th letter)(24th letter)(19th letter)
