last week’s quiz, with the only 20/20 score.
This week, your challenge is to link the hall of fame acts with their backing bands. I think it’s pretty straightforward, so that it’s somewhat of a speed challenge.
I scored 21/21 with 2:53 remaining. I was unfamiliar with Bob Wills, but obviously was able to figure his backing band out via the process of elimination. Can you beat my time?
As a bonus challenge, you can sort members of the 27 club by year of death. I got it precisely wrong the first time as I sorted from least recent at the top – you should start with the most recent. There are three pretty easy ones, but four of them are in that 1969-1971 period.
