The SMS Trivia Question of the Week 8 / 30…

Yes  sir or madam, it is Tuesday and the time is right for an all new “SMS trivia quiz”for Tuesday, August 30th! Brought to us each week by all the very Groovey folks over at Omnivore Recordings, your “must see” spot for the coolest music in the known world and beyond! Here is where we usually recognize the “Brainy readers who tackled last week’s quiz, but last week we ran an encore post from 2018! So, with no further delay, here’s this weeks all new question: His real name is John Henry Ramistella, and in 1964 he was the “Main Attraction” on the “Sunset Strip!” By the end of that year John released his debut album, and in an unusual move, his debut L.P. was a “Live” recording! Subsequently releasing his first of many hit singles, which was also a “Live” recording. Additionally John may possibly be the only artist to “Name check” Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band in the lyric to one of his many big hits!

In summary, here’s what we need:

1) What is his professional “Stage Name” ?

2) Give us the title to his Live debut album ?

3) Give us the titles to at least 4 of his hits including his Live debut single ?

4) Give us the title of his song that includes the lyrical reference to “Sgt. Peppers  Lonely Hearts Club Band” ?
