Merry Christmas to all and to all a great quiz!
Yes, Virginia! There is a Trivia Tuesday for Xmas day! And on this Xmas morning we’d like to offer a Merry Xmas and a Hallelujah to the brilliant readers who correctly answered last weeks question which was all about the children of celebrity parents who had hit records in the 60’s ( You can always find our previous question by going to our home page and click on the question just below this one )
So, SMS Xmas congrats go out to “Fingers “Fred Vogel for, as always being first in! However, sorry to say Fred only got half the question correct, but he was in VERY early! Steven Winogradsky was in next, and we Think he nailed it? Didja Steve? Also on board was our ole pal Jim Gorman and YES Jimmy nailed it with a couple fresh ideas! Denise shoemaker, gave it “Hell” and came up with a half-dozen talented progeny but, unfortunately none were from the 60’s! Sorry D. There is always today’s question. Our new Trivia buddy Mark L. Chapman dropped by with nothing less than the perfectly correct answers and some great Extras! Big Thanx Mark! And lastly, but certainly not Leastly, Our dear old friend who isn’t in The Rolling Stones, But does play a mean riff or two Ronnie wood showed up, went deep, expanded on the question and as usual entertained us!
Congrats, We’ll Done and Thank you to all you Gents and Dear Lady D.

Lastly, for clarity, the songs we’re looking for didn’t necessarily come out in the 60’s but must have been written by one of these 60’s artists, CLEAR? If not, jot down any question into the comments section and we’ll clear it up!
