The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 3/30

Yep! It’s the new SMS Trivia Quiz for Tuesday March 30th! Brought to us each week by all the Groovey people at Omnivore Recordings! Your number one stop for all the music you didn’t know, you didn’t know!  But, before we get into this weeks question, we’d like to recognize all the. Loyal and brilliant readers who weighed in on last week’s question, which was: A lyrical question! We asked all about the complex and clever lyrics to The Associations’ debut smash “Along Comes Mary” from 1966! Coming in first with all the right answers was a looong time SMS Super Genius Mr. Steve Winogradsky!  Way to go Steve, it’s great to see you back at SMS! Following Steve was our old friend and long time SMS Super Genius Mr. Ed Simmons! Great to see you back on board Mr. Ed! Next up, our old colleague and SMS Super Genius Mr. Jeff Conroy! Way to go Mr. “C”  Wrapping it all up last week was a relatively new SMS regular, Mr. Tom Slocum! Way to go Tom! Don’t be a stranger!

But now! It’s time for this weeks all new Trivia Quiz: This weeks question will be an Anagram and a wee bit more! And we gotta be honest, we went a little easy on you this week! But, easy or not, here we go: Here’s your Anagram… “Deep Zen Pill”…..Easy Peasey right? Next, what are the names of the four original founding members of the band, what instrument did each play and lastly, give us the name of the English Blues Rock band that our Anagram evolved from?

in summary, here’s what we need:

1) Who does our Anagram “Deep Zen Pill” unscramble to become?

2) What are the names of the four original members and which instrument did each member play?

3) What 60’s English Blues Rock band did “Deep Zen Pill” evolve from?

  1. Hey there, I am no music genius, Super or any other kind – can regular people play? Love Deep Zen Pill for Led Zeppelin but thank goodness there is spell check on this because even with the letters provided in the anagram I couldn’t spell zeppelin. I could name Robert Plant and Jimmy Page but would have to go to Wikipedia for the rest…. Would that be cheating?

    This site is stupendous, wonderful, amazing, marvelous – the synonyms for fantastic are endless….
