The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 12/1

Yes indeed, it’s Trivia Tuesday for what many folks believe is the true start of the Christmas season, December first! Brought to us each and every Tuesday morning ALL YEAR LONG, by all the Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! But! Before we get to this weeks question, we’d like to recognize the “Jolly” readers who weighed in on last weeks question! Which was: We asked a series of questions about three names that appear in a particular Beatle song! First in and with a couple attempts was SMS Super Genius Clark Besch! Good try,but maybe this week Clark. Hot on his heels were two more SMS Super Genius’s Edmund Clark Simmons and Fred Vogel!  Lastly, our old friend and new regular contributor Mr. Barry Volk chimed in partially correct! Well done and congrats to all you very distinguished Gentlemen!

But now! It’s time for this weeks new Trivia Question: This week your question is an Anagram and a wee bit more…Here’s your Anagram: “Heckling perturbed men”  So, let’s start by telling us who our Anagram unscrambles to become? Next, tell us what their real name is? Give us the titles to at least three of their many hits? Finally, for  that coveted SMS Super Genius status, what infamous Beverly Hills property, once owned by Ringo Starr and Mama Cass did our Anagram also once own?
In summary, here’s what we need:

1) Who does “Heckling Perturbed Men” unscramble to become?

2) What is their real name?

3) Give us the titles to at least 3 of their many hits?

4) What legendary Sunset Blvd. property, who’s previous owners include Ringo and Mama Cass did our Anagram also own?

  1. 1. “Heckling Perturbed Men” unscrambles to ”Bret ”Chipmunk” Legendre”.
    2. Legendre was the name of the character played by Bela Lugosi in the 1932 film, ”White Zombie”. Bela Lugosi’s real name was Béla Ferenc Blaskó.
    3. Bela Lugosi’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was mentioned in ”Celluloid Heroes” by the Kinks. Three of their hits were You Really Got Me, Tired of Waiting For You and Dandy.
    4. Lugosi lived at 6525 Sunset Blvd (The Hollywood Athletic Club) in the 1930’s. The building was owned by Michael Jackson’s family for a short time in the 1980’s. Ringo and Mama Cass knew Michael Jackson. (OK, that last one’s a stretch.)

    Is this s trick question, my friend?

    • Hey Fred,
      Good catch! And no, not a trick at all! I had a busy morning , heard our Anagram on the radio and bingo an unusual SMS “re run! Although we did throw in the “property” element! We promise a all new 100% original question next week! Jeeze, nothing gets past you!
      Lastly, do you know what property he and Ringo both owned on separate occasions?

      • I do not. Possibly the one with the pubic-haired statues?
        As an aside, I did exchange peace signs with Ringo driving through an intersection on Sunset way back when. My only interaction with any of the Fab Four.
