Well - thank you Starlord for such a fun filled day, the puzzles, the music and my new crest. This calls for another party and you must be the guest of honour.I shall make all the arrangements tomorrow - in the meantime, roll the credits :o) andcue harmonica .... sleep well everyone..... night :)))))) morning Neville ..
I surely do... :-)
Why Starlord, you are most kind - my thanks. Yes I am unveiling my new Crest. Hope you all like it.
Oh wow, Lady C... allow me to compliment you with your new av. Far better than a silhouette. Very classy, very posh, very... Lady C :-)
Albert? The one and only Albert Hammond? You're bound never to forget him from now on :-)
Well you know Starlord, no I didn't notice that his guitar was scratched, and guess what, I must have bumped into Albert about six times today as well :)))))
lol, thngs like that can happen, Major D :-)Did you notice how scratched his guitar is? This is not road worn, this is: I cannot strum the strings properly.
I knew his face, I was sure of it - then when I saw his name - I'd never seen him before :)
Lol Lady C, that's a good one :-)One has to study the pic, Aggie, not just glance at it :-)@ Pk :-)))))
Good morning to you too ladyc. Now I see he has the 2 instruments there. Didn't look close enough I guess.
Morning Aggie, it was very challenging this morning, I had to go in for deep research, then Nevile just said who it was and Squishy came in from the Doc's and said who it was and I was on a journey to the centre of the earth I can tell you - LOL A clue below was that he plays the harmonica and Major Don told this joke - Does your sister play the mouth organ? Yes - it's our Monica :) Hilarious - don't you just love that.
Morning Aggie :-)Indeed, they had a tough time finding today's mystery person :-)
Good morning starlord and everyone. I'm too late again. Congrats to Neville on the win.
You are soooo bad, all of you :-)As a well deserved punishment, I'll post a DYR of a local Belgian band...That'll teach you
It is a 'me' word isn't it Neville - it usually goes with approbation. Magnanimus approbation - perfect :)))
yes, she is indefatigable
It's a "lady charnley" word, starlord. She will know exactly what it means, as she probably learned it at Finishing School.
Had to look up the word 'magnanimous', Neville... I have problems with words of more than two syllables :-)
Many thanks indeed, lady c - Marge & I agree that you are most magnanimous. King George Park is a lovely spot here in Sydney. And to all the other starlord fans, many thanks for your good wishes. Most appreciated.
Awwww how sweet :-)
Yes I can sponsor a prize, I have a little place in King George Park in Sydney, you may have free use of that Neville. Let me know when you want to take Marge and I will arrange for a full team of staff to be at at your disposal.
Now all you need is a British (European) Rock bible :-)
I have a U.S. Rock Bible too. Romeo's Tune got to No.11 on Billboard in January 1980.
Romeo's Tune didn't score that high here, but is considered to be his greatest hit. I listened to it and ... didn't recognize it :-)Lady C, can you sponsor a prize? Donate one of your castles in Australia
I've never heard of him or Romeo's tune. But I would have seen his cameo appearance in Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" video, playing her boyfriend. what a claim to fame
NEVILLE ..... WOW .....congratulations and very well done, take a pat on the back :))))))
My Oz Rock Bible tells me that Steve Forbert got to No.19 here, with "Romeo's Tune", in March 1980. I do not know the tune entitled "Schoolgirl".
aaah Squish... just missed it then, what a shame :-(But there's another one available on FB with no guesses yet :-)))))))
well done Neville - wouldn't have got it in 24 hours
Well ...Neville is today's winner.... Way to go Neville.Steve Forbert it is. And his hit here was 'Schoolgirl'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_XK-BC8i3MNever thought he would be known Down Under... Many congrats for this win.And for the others... better luck tomorrow :-)
Just got back from doctor's - just read all the clues - just found his name and Neville beat me to it...
No Major, mintaka got Stan Ridgeway - how about Steve Ray Vaughan
Was it Steve Forbert?
Oh he surely will, Lady C, no doubt about that :-)Did I miss the joke?
I was going to say stan ridgeway :(
No - Major Don will find him :) Major, love our monica joke :)))))
Final clue: initials S F
No Lady C... it never took this long, did it? Did I finally find a real mystery singer? :-))))
Ricky Scaggs ?
Alas, Lady C :-(Here's a clue Major D.This guy was born in 1954. His greatest hit (over here) was about a girl in a particular stage of her life.Will this do? :-)
Give us a year Starlord - 1970s?
Doc Watson, Boss Scaggs, Randy Bachman ?
How about Rob Roy Parnell ?
You're right about that, Neville... He really doesn't look much like Arlo Guthrie...
OK, my next try is Arlo Guthrie, though it doesn't look very much like him.
Morning Neville :-) No Donovan, even though he played the same instruments :-)It's an American who had a hit in Belgium, Major D. So I assume he is known in the UK as well. Not sure if he's in Neville's famous book, but he'll tell us later for sure ;)
Does your sister play the mouthorgan? Yes - it's our Monica :)
Hi Neville - I thought it was Don Partridge (Rosie - oh Rosie) so I messaged Starlord and he said no - but he did have a hit in Belgium. Does that clue help if you live in Australia!!! doesn't help me much here :)
I'll try for Donovan (Leitch), but I'm not real confident.
I'll have to start my daily routine, so I'll be AFK for some 20 mins
None of those, Lady C. Here's another clue: he plays the guitar and harmonica. :)Now that surely helps, doesn't it?
Jay Bennett ?
Peter Green ?
That would give it all away, Major D :-)Sorry Lady C... it isn't.Still too early for clues :-)
Good morning starlord, lady c, MajorDon & all starlord fans. This one has got me puzzled.
is it gary moore ?
I looking forward to the answer from our 'backgrounds' expert.
Morning Major D. You could have given one clue like: it's a man :-)That would eliminate 50% of the names instantly
Hello everyone - no clues Donald here - got told off yesterday :)Hope all is well across the globe today
It might be, but it isn't :-(
Might it be John Hiatt ?
Morning Lady C... Grey and cool here. Glad that the high temperature is gone :-)
Good morning Starlord and Starlord fans (and the Do You Remember gang) another glorious one (day that is). As for the puzzle ....... let us engage the little grey cells, oui ?
