  1. It was one I had to look up and it states the Danish band, the Beefeaters, were originally known as the Yeoman of the Guard?? Maybe it is not the same band you had in mind?

    • Hey Jules,
      Thanx for your patience, clearly there is a fair amount of confusion with regard to this weeks question, simply illustrated by the fact that YOU are the only reader who has even attempted to answer the quiz! Thank you very much!
      But just to be clear with regard to The Beefeaters and the other 6 bands, we want to know who they became, NOT who they were!
      Clear? Yeah, we know, “Clear as Mud”
      Thank you again Miz Julie

  2. Beefeaters were The Yeoman Of The Guard and Peter Thorup was a member
    Pendletones were The Beach Boys and consisted of: Brian, Dennis and Carl Wilson and their cousin Mike Love
    The Golliwogs were the Creedence Clearwater Revival with John Fogerty on guitar, Stu Cook played the piano, and Doug Clifford played the drums.
    Not a clue about who the Ragamuffins were
    The Polka Tuck Blues Band became Black Sabbath with Tony Iommi, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler, drummer Bill Ward, and singer Ozzy Osbourne.
    Screaming Abdabs became Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett

    Rick and the Ravens became the Doors with Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, and Jim Morrison

    • Hey Jules,
