First in with all the right answers was swiftly, speedy and on the money Mr Jeff Conroy! You done it again Mr. “C”! Followed by my old class mate from Eagle Rock High School, and dear friend Mr. Bill Goshay! Always great to see my old friend here but he came up just a wee bit short on correct answers! Thanx Billy, I’ll see you at Gym Class! Coming in third, my favorite Flute player, former band mate and now a new member in The SMS Super Genius’s Ms. Libbie Jo Snyder!

But now, it’s time for the new SMS Trivia Question for Tuesday, August 16th!
This weeks question is an Anagram and a whole lot more…Here’s your Anagram: “Two red rats”….Of course we need to know who “Two red rats” unscrambles to become? In the mid Sixties he and his guitar player friend and future member of The Rolling Stones joined a very popular British band scoring several hits before he went Solo in the early 70’s! Next we need, the name of this great mid 60’s British band? Additionally we need the name of the guitar player who went on to become a Rolling Stone? Lastly, give us the titles of three popular songs from The British band as well as three titles from our Anagram’s Solo career?
In summary, here’s what we need:
1) Who does “Two red rats unscramble to become ?
2) Give us the name of the British band he and his guitar player friend joined in the mid 60’s
3) Give us the name of our Anagrams Guitar player friend ? ( who eventually became a “Rolling Stone?)
