Music Quiz: Early Influences

Last week lots of people scored a perfect 30/30 in the 1980s lyric quiz – congratulations to Rich Kamerman with the fastest recorded time.

This week, Jim was interested in a blues quiz. The best I could find was this quiz of early influences in the rock and roll hall of fame.

I scored an embarrassing 11/31 (below the median!). I’m sure other contestants will demolish my score – I’m not very well versed in pre-rock and roll.

How did you get on?

  1. A truly awful showing from me this week, with 13/30…even though I know just about every name in this quiz. Sadly my brain wasn’t accessing most of them. In bowling terms, it’s like a had a spare last week and followed it with a gutter ball. Oh well. At least I was reminded of some CDs I need to take off the shelves & give a spin soon.

  2. I didn’t do great but I knew more than I thought…I guess it paid off watching all of the music docs…

      • Cool Jim! I have watched a lot of documentaries and that is where I remembered some of them.

        • Yeah, me too. I’ve probably read more books than watched documentaries. I’m kicking myself that I missed Jimmie Rodgers and Pete Seeger. But you really had to dig deep in the archives for that one.

          • Yea I’ve read a few about 60s British rock bands like The Beatles…Their influences is where I got some. Yea some of those questions were down right hard. Seeger I got because of the connection to Dylan.
            This one was a good challenge.
