WEEKEND CONTEST (1) --- a little music trivia

jgibvjgibv Posts: 9,244 ✭✭✭✭✭
Alright folks, it's contest time ....

To be eligible to win a 5-pack of cigars, all you have to do is send me a PM with the answers to the "music trivia" questions below.
No other entry requirements --- anyone can play.

There will be 3 winners total for this contest* --- the 3 people who answer the most questions correctly will win. In the event of a tie, whoever responded first will win.

The contest ends this Sunday night at midnight, so PM me your answer before then!

Lastly, since there will be multiple winners, please do not post your answers in this thread.
Instead, please leave a reply here saying that you messaged me, in case there's a tie and any discrepancies about who "answered first."
If anyone answers all four questions correctly, I will post it here.

1)
Q: what band used to travel with more than 50 roadies which included a karate instructor, doctor, and someone who's sole job was to clean and transport a Persian rug?


2)
Q: In 1990, this famous musician visited a record store but was suspected of being a shoplifter since the manager (a fellow forum BOTL) didn't know who the musician was. Name the musician.

(EDIT: Since I assume this question will be hard to answer, if you guess wrong on the first try --- I will let you know and you can re-guess for this question only.)


3)
Q: In this 1977 concert at Anaheim stadium, which band was said to have "stolen the show" of at least 5 bands?


4)
Q: What famous rocker is also an avid golfer? (He plays with a 2 handicap)




( *In order to "spread the love" --- if you're the "noob" winner of the "noobs only music trivia contest", you can not win this contest too and get 2 5-packs. Sorry)

* I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

    4 was a gimmee, 1 and 3 either needed some thinking or a google. For 2, I would have guessed Vedder at first, maybe Cobain. Glad I jumped on the other game.

    This was a combo of John and I coming up with questions. At the time, the store I managed was an all CD, audiophile store. I had many encounters with music people. The guy had a stack of box sets that were made in Germany and were very expensive. As my bonus was based on loss prevention and having previously managed stores in L.A., I was very security minded. He turned out to be very cool and we talked a lot about the Blues and old Country & Western. My assistant manager had to clue me in to his identity. More true stories and crazy questions to follow in the future. I hope you enjoyed it!
