Back again with an all new Trivia Question for. Tuesday April 18th. Brought to us each week by all the Groovey people over at Omnivore Recordings! Your perfect spot for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But, before we raise the curtain on this weeks quiz, we’d like to recognize the brilliant readers who answered last week’s question, which was all about everybody’s favorite “Mouseketeer and “Beach Party movie queen Ms. Annette Funicello and her summer hit from 1961 “Pineapple Princess.” A number of readers took a shot at the question but only Larry in Munich correctly answered all parts of the question! Long time SMS Super Genius Jeffery Conroy took a swat at it but struck out Thanx to one and all for keeping the conversation alive!
But now! It’s time for the brand new Trivia Quiz for Tues. April 18th.
The artist we’re focusing on this week enjoys or perhaps suffers from the unique distinction of sounding and looking like Elvis! At first that might sound like a good thing, but not so, although he scored a number of charted singles “The Elvis Thing” cut his career short! Our local Top 40 station KRLA even ran a contest challenging listeners to a sort of “Guess Who” which further helped to kill any credibility our artist might have earned! And that’s our question, what is the name of this Chicago native and Elvis sound alike from the very early 60’s and give us the titles to at least two of his Top 40 hits ?
Thats it for this week..
Here’s a summary of what we need:
1) Give us the name of the early 60’s artist who was famous for looking and sounding too much like Elvis!
2) Give us the titles to at least two of his hits ?
Yeah we know it ain’t much and the photo is blurred. ( very hard to find pix on this guy, natch!) Sooo we’ll share an interesting story about our artist and one of his fans:
Although his success in the U.S. was limited his impact outside the U.S. was huge! To that point During Led Zeppelin’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 Robert Plant sighted our artist ( not Elvis) as one of his greatest influences! ( Perhaps with tongue firmly placed in cheek? )
