Music Quiz: 1001 Albums, Multiple Entities

We had a whole lotta 100% last week – congratulations to Jim, jprobichaud, Murphy’s Law, Tony, Rich, J., Paul, and Aaron, who all scored full marks. A special shout-out to Rich, who scored the fastest time, having a spare 3:48 remaining.
This week’s challenge is tougher. You are required to name individuals who have been included in 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die book under multiple entities – for instance, the first individual on the list was part of both Allman Brothers Band and Derek and the Dominoes. You may wish to read some https://1001albumsin10years.wordpress.com/ to get yourself in the mood for the quiz.

I scored 57/69. There are a few weird quirks – there was one very cryptic set of clues for an artist in the S section, but I’m thankful that I didn’t have to name all the shared members of Parliament and Funkadelic. Unsurprisingly if you’ve read this site, I aced almost everything from before I was born (in 1979), but was less certain on later acts – I can only name three of the Wu Tang guys, and only one of them was eligible.
How did you score?

  1. I’m a simple man. I see Bob Mould I press like

  2. If you haven’t tried this one yet. A’s score of 57 is impressive. I got 38/69 or 55%. I distinctly remember saying last time I only wanted easy ones!!! I felt the flop sweat as time was running out and later on seeing answers, there were four or five more I should have had. But as for the rest of them, I wouldn’t recognize their names no matter how long I thought about it. As to quirks, they have three slots for solo Beatles and then there is one kicker in ‘S’- maybe the same one – where it could have theoretically been anybody.

    • I thought The Beatles were OK, but that S one is tricky. Might have helped if they’d specified it was a duo. You’re the only entry so far – it might be a light week.

      • I guess the Beatles one was fair. But then when they only specify three, you might – and I did – waste time plugging in the wrong guy. I”m more annoyed at dumb ones I missed. LIke a Yardbirds guy! I neither know nor care a fig about Wu Tang Clan however.

  3. 41 for me. Definitely should have got another 5 or so when the answers were revealed… that was tough, though.

  4. 56.
    That was possibly my favourite to date. I’m kicking myself on a few of these (Jeff Beck), a coupe were pure luck as I was typing the surnames of those I knew and they happened to share… but I’ll put my hands up to not being able to name a single member of the Wu Tang Clan. ‘Self In Band Name’ caused me to swear too much considering I’m in the office.

  5. 46. Inability to spell Icelandic names and a missing ‘t’ in a talking head cost a couple of easy ones!

  6. Participation is what’s important, right? (just like voting). So I participated, and got 25. Of course I missed some easy ones – I think the number of entries and rushing to answer them caused me to miss a few. But very challenging. Am impressed with Tony getting 56.

  7. A respectable 54/69 for me. I knew the Can solo artist but couldn’t remember the spelling so I really should have scored 55. I knew a few others but they remained in the deep recesses of my overcrowded brain during this quiz. As always, this was a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing.

  8. I was a fail on this one. I don’t remember names like I used to. Getting old I guess.

  9. Big fat failure on this one. I only do well on multiple choice questions 🙂
