lol....... those golden moldies are before my time

ask me about Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, and The Who :fool:
 
Except for 2 that I'm a little unsure of, I knew the rest without the using the choices. I'm 76 so I was there, paying attention and loving every minute of it. Danny and the Juniors were wrong about Rock and Roll " will never die", It died in the early '90s, it got " grunged" to death. In my humble opinion.

I am younger than a lot here and I knew pretty much all the lyrics questions. Those songs were still popular going into the 90's and saw regular radio time, at least in the midwest.
However, the questions about who married so and so and some of that? yeah not then or now do I care what celebrities do in their own lives, so had no clue!
 
Got all but two, and these are mostly '50s-related. I'm proud of my old-fart knowledge!
 
No answers in mine either
