  2. Darn it, I only knew Peter Gabriel and Jolt. I know follow-up trivia about both of those, though. I was a huge fan of Gabriel, Genesis, and Collins–right up until Susudio sounded the death knell of the last two. Gabriel held up nicely, though. And in Collins’ defense, he is literally deaf now.

  3. I know the first one. It starts with a “T”.

    I think I know number three.

    I think I also know the answer to No. 5. It packs quite a J***.

    These are fun. Can’t wait to see the answer.

I respond to comments, so leave me a note....
