1. In the bizarre alternate universe of Hallofame, Elvis Presley lies in a pool of blood with a drumstick through his heart. In his hand he clutches a piece of paper. In the office, Itsmyego (Ego for short) prepares to interview his first suspect.

Ego: Well, what do you know, it's the Duke. Ha! From "Pin Ups" you've gone to being "The Man Who Sold the World". Now, if you want me to go easy on you, you had better 'fess up.

Suspect: "Hang Onto Yourself", Ego. My deepest "Sorrow" to the victim and his family, but "Breaking Glass" here would be "Rock & Roll Suicide" and I'm not one of your "Diamond Dogs".

    Mick Jagger
    Trent Reznor
    Freddie Mercury
    David Bowie


2. Ego: OK Boy Blue it's time to blow your horn.

Suspect: Yeah I am "Kind of Blue" ain't I? But I'm hard bop man, a real "Bitches Brew". I tell ya man I'm "Cookin", I'm "Steamin" and, "In a Silent Way" I'm "Relaxin". Drumsticks are not my scene dude "I'm the Man With the Horn".

    Charlie Parker

4. Ego: OK Riley, you got your prints all over Hallofame, what's your story?

    Blind Lemon Jefferson
    Muddy Waters
    T-Bone Walker


5. Ego: You sure ain't a pot of gold blondie but I've still got you where I want you, now squeal.

Suspect: Don't you try to "Play Me" Ego, I've heard your "Longfellow Serenade" too many times before, "If You Know What I Mean". "I am ... I said" and, unfortunately for you, you're "The Last Thing on My Mind".

Who is "The Fox"?

    Billy Joel
    Tom Waits
    Elton John
    Richard Carpenter

9. Ego: No "Easy Skanking" here "Natty Dread". "Three Little Birds" told me you killed the King.

Suspect: "Judge Not" Ego man. "I Shot the Sheriff" but I did not kill the King. "The Sun is Shining" and I sing the "Redemption Song" now. I think that you "Turn Your Lights Down Low" and you missing something man.

10. With the reggae master's words ringing in his ears Ego returned to the scene of the crime. It took an effort to draw his eyes away from the drumstick in the King's chest and he soon spied the piece of paper clutched in the victim's hand.

Sorrow. Kind of Blue. Ring of Fire. The Thrill is Gone. Longfellow Serenade. The Fox. What Is Life. Redemption Song.
