It’s time for the all new Trivia question for the week of February the22nd.
This week’s post focuses on one of the most versatile and unique artists from from the 60’s, and beyond. He’s a three time Grammy award winner, a singer / songwriter, comedian and a Poet! He is a master class guitarist and an award winning photographer and author! Further more he was a “Comedy writer, writing sketches and Jokes for the likes of Glen Campbell, The Smothes brothers, and Steve Martin! As a photographer his work is celebrated around the world! One of his most popular and unique photos was a picture of a Grehound Bus! However the most unusual aspect of this photo is, it was LIFE SIZE! Yep and you could fold it up to the size of a “Coffee Table Book! “Mind Blowing” indeed He released his first album in 1968 featuring a genre defying single that shot into the top ten and remains as the principal element of his global popularity Lastly, in addition to a top ten single, his debut L.P. Also included one our favorite titles “The Prince’s Panty’s” What is the title referring to?
In summary, here’s what we need:
1) Give us the name of this multi talented 60’s artist ?
2) Give us the title to his debut album that includes a photo of the life size Greyhound bus ?
3) Give us the title of his break thru genre defying “Smash hit from 1968 ?

“Classical Gas” amazing performance on the Smothers Bros show!
Prince’s Panties was mis-typed on the record as “Princess Panties”.. The story of his dogs from Mr. W. above is correct.

In the song The Prince’s Panties, the prince called his dogs “panties”, because he liked to see them pant after running them ragged. In the end of the song, they ate him.
