1. Bob Dylan WAY back when
2. Um...the Monkees?
3. I see Henry Winkler; is this the cast of Happy Days? I admit I never saw this, but when I moved back to the States, my jr high students were all into The Fonz. I missed 3 yrs of TV "culture" in the 70's.
4. Wow. I have no clue, but the fairly tame "long hair" is Early Beatles in style.
5. When I worked at a residential treatment center, we called these PINS--"persons in need of supervision."
tut tut, no star for me!

MQLXIII EPs and special edition plaid pants are in the mail to la gringissima, Karmasartre, and Boo, the three who correctly ID'ed all six bands.

EPs also to Carto, Nichim, Critical Bill, Kadonkadonk, Jenners, Mrs.5000, Ben, and sister jen.

This of course produces all sorts of interest and excitement on the leaderboard, about which I will not discourse tonight because I am freaking tired and about to fall asleep on the keyboard.

But you guessed it, Kadonkadonk. I'm rigging it so you can win. See you for the Thursday Quiz, which will be on Street Names of Downtown Juneau!
