RIP Emitt Rhodes / The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 7/21

Yes indeed! It’s Trivia Tuesday for July 21st. Brought to us each week by the kind folks at Omnivore Recordings! Your only place for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know! But, before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to recognize all the very cool readers who answered last week’s Trivia Question, which was: We asked what The Byrd’s, The Buffalo Springfield and The Hollies had in common? The answer is, of course, each band contributed one of it’s members to form “Crosby Stills and Nash” Many of you jumped on the question, but Tom Slocum was first in, but unfortunately Tom didn’t correctly answer the entire question! But this week’s new question is just below, so good luck, this week Tom! Next up with all the correct details was Owen!,  Followed closely by Fred Vogel with a very funny Answer that wasn’t exactly what we re looking for, but still correct. Well done Fred! Curtis Stone showed up with al the right answers and his usual keen insight! And last in, just under the wire, our old friend Mr. Ron Wood nailing the question and sharing some personal experiences! Thank you Woody! Congrats to all you brilliant dudes and Thank You!

Lastly, with great sadness we say goodbye to an under appreciated inspiration,pioneer and arguably the greatest singer/songwriter from the 1960’s and beyond Emitt Rhodes…1950 – 2020




  1. I WILL say that Emitt Rhodes is a better writer than Elvis Presley! Emitt IS indeed a great writer and one of my alltime faves, but does not quite live up to being the GREATEST. For about 5 years, he was about as great as they come in the late 60’s/early 70’s for sure. I wish he had died having some 20 albums under his belt and not basically 5. Rick, you are in shock as am I, but he was likely not. Rest in peace, Emitt.

    • Hey Clark,
      I’m sure every Emitt Rhodes fan would agree with you! Yes, the world would be a better place if Emitt’s legacy included 20 albums, but his minimal output doesn’t make him any less of a singer / songwriter, only more valuable! Furthermore re: your comment about Emitt’s standing in music from the 60’s. We deliberately wrote “Emitt is ARGUABLY thee greatest singer/songwriter from the decade” We knew we were making a grand statement and expected and looked forward to a healthy debate! Our only defense is we said it, because it’s true! Let the arguments begin!
