Feel free to ask your own questions.

I have another one. What is the real name of the Nowhere Man that the Beatles sang about?

OK. Here's a trivia question from PianoJerome:

(Edit: I don't like that question anymore. I'll try a different one. ;\) )

Name three European composers who all born in the year 1685.

Name two American composers who both died in the year 1990.

Name one Brazillian composer who was not born in 1685 and who did not die in 1990.

Trying to hold onto my no google ethics... plays, how sure are you about Outsiders? I'm about 50% only on South Siders. You could talk me into Outsiders pretty easily.

Definitely the Outsiders. Plays, of course you would know. Great little song from a band that went nowhere.

OK, when the Beatles played their infamous 30 minute set at Shea Stadium, who was the opening band? For extra credit, name two of their best known songs (can't say "hits" because they never rose that high).
