      I should cheat and lie about it...LOL
      But I'll save that strategy for white folks...

      Now Brother I told you the first thing to go is your mind…but what the heck…let me see…

      Hmmmm???

      1.) (c.) The Matadors (man I seen the Temps movie several times which should’ve had this clue in it) …oh well…

      2.) This is easily (a.) David Ruffin, Paul Williams, Eddie Kendricks, Melvin Franklin, and Otis Williams

      3.) Damn I use to know this …LOL (just shoot me…LOL)

      4.) Man, I’m having a Vulcan mind-melt…LOL let’s see?? (b.) Smokey would sound right, for I think Curtis Mayfield had transitioned when Sparkle was made…???

      5.) Brother I missed the rap era by just a few years…LOL... So though I did listen to some things I was too busy chasing Bird and Coltrane by then… I’ll guess, KRS1 & Public Enemy

      6.) Here we go again…(smoke coming out of my ears…LOL) I know Nkosi is linguistically related to a South African language so I’ll say, (b.) Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrica!

      7.) Bo Diddley is a blues player, and Jimi Hendrix had some unusual gigs in his early bio, like playing with Bobbi Womack when he was more of a Jazz guitarist, but I’ll go with (a.) Prince.

      8.) Well we know it’s (a.) John Coltrane, though the other two were divine masters in their own right…

      9.) I would be amazed if Scott Joplin pulled that off in his day, and Sam Cook had such a short life, I’m going to try (b.) Otis Redding…

      10.) Okay…the Vulcan mind-melt is complete… ...LOL

      Now Brother I use to sit around and do quizzes, and more so ear quizzes whereas we try to name a Jazz musician's playing by just listening...Now that's the REAL old School way of quizzing your mind... See if you can tell Clifford Brown's playing from Lee Morgan's and so forth...so don't puff your chest out too far, for there are some real music test waiting on you...LOL

      But I enjoyed it anyway...test like these keep your mind sharp.... I've never been afraid of a challenge...

      Cool Some people...

      Now after some research, I don’t know how I missed the Temptation question for the fight that got Elbridge "Al" Bryant thrown out of the group was a very profound scene in the Temps movie, but let’s be clear the Temps where hardly known outside of Detroit at that time, and hadn’t made it into the top 20, so anybody who grew up listening to the Temps would not have known that unless they had seen the movie or read a recent detailed bio on the group… But I admit I should have at least recalled that fact from the movie… but otherwise, that should be considered an almost unfair question to most of members at this forum…now, you know you ain’t right bro…LOL

      And also, Jimi Hendrix stint with the Isley Brothers was so short and only on the chitlin’ circuit. Also, the "one" recording he did with them was so obscure that there is some confusion on the internet about the dates…again you know you’re diggin’ my brother…have that virus reached your computer yet…I sent it by express email…LOL
