Just an idea!!!

A new idea for the forum. A quiz about Prog - but the questions are set by you!

The idea is this-
one person sets a question [the answer of which should be achievable and not require too a long post!]

People then post their answers in reply- the person with the first correct answer [as judged by the person who set the question] wins- and their prize is to.................

Set the next question!

No punching, gouging, knives or pistols please - it is for fun!.....................

I have set the first question which is:

What connects Gentle Giant, Steve Howe, Asia and Greenslade? -----Easy or what?



Davin, if you like this idea how about making it a new Forum heading? I promise not to sulk if you tell me to go boil my head!!

On the track Utopia, on "Todd Rundgren's Utopia" Todd plays a guitar sometimes referred to as "Schizzy". What other famous guitarist owned it?

Extra Points: What band did he play it in, what was the make and model, and why was it called "Schizzy"?

That was George Harrison's old guitar, right? Mmmm, Beatles maybe?

For some reason, I keep thinking it's Clapton's from the Yardbirds, but I'm pretty certian it was George's.

If you have the album "Todd", there is a picture of him playing it. Like I said, it wasn't GEORGE'S guitar.

Hint: Guitarists and bands like this always rise to the top....

The C***M of the crop.

I think it was Eric Clapton amd Cream.

I was leaning towards that as I seem to remember reading something way back...........but as I say it's really just a guess.

As to why it's called schizzy I haven't a clue. I know Clapton used to play a bright, multi coloured Fender at one point and can only surmise that this had something to do with it.

Keith guessed correctly. Schizzy was Eric's maroon Gibson SG standard with a psychedelic paint job. I don't think Clapton ever named it. I have heard other guitarists refer to it by that name because Clapton named some of his axes by color. I.E., the black Fender Strat is known as "Blackie".

OK Keith, take it away....

"Drama" is the only record in which Jon Anderson does not appear?

I got one...

Steve Howe's band Tommorow was the house band in a party scene in a movie back in '68 or '69. While they were playing and being filmed, the bassist got sick and had to go throw-up or something. Name the famous guitarist who just happened to be there and came up and picked up the bass and started jamming with Steve Howe (this is apparently all on tape).

Who is this guitarist?

He almost became the guitarist for Jethro Tull aftr Mick Abrams left. However, his equipment was malfunctioning, and he was passed over for Martin Barre. He the went on to found one of the most successful rock bands of all time. Hint: He's also from Blackpool (home of Ian Anderson).

now that would be cool band!

I can't imagine that pairing - that would be mind-blowing!

One and only hint: think MUCH heavier.

Sorry about the misleading info - the band was very successful, but I think I overdid it with the "of all time" comment.

Dark Sunday

It's Tony Iommi who went on to form Black Sabbath.

I think he was in the band when they recorded the Rolling Stones Rock N' Roll Circus film.
