Music Trivia

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Since I usually don't do well on music questions during Duffy's Trivia nite [unless country music], I thought I would periodically post music trivia questions.  I'll lead off with a John Lennon question since there was so much media attention this week for John's birthday anniversary.  I'll post answers on Thursday night.
