Heavy Metal Trivia Questions

1. Formed in New Jersey and named after its lead singer, which heavy metal hair band from the early 80s can be considered "Wanted: Dead or Alive"?

From Quiz
Let's Get Some Air in the Hair

Answer: Bon Jovi

Consisting of Jon Bongiovi (aka "Jon Bon Jovi"), Tico Torres, David Bryan, Phil X, Hugh McDonald, and formerly Richie Sambora, Bon Jovi has been screaming through the speakers since 1983. "Slippery When Wet" (1986) was the album that launched them into the stratosphere, followed by "New Jersey" in 1988. Solo albums from members came about in early 90s before the boys re-formed (with new haircuts!) and re-launched to a newer, younger audience. Whilst their sound and feel has softened since the 2000s, Bon Jovi were still touring and remained popular more than 30 years after their first release. Question by lones78

2. What legendary English guitarist, known as the king of the heavy riff, lost the tips of two fingers in a factory accident?

From Quiz The Cream of the Heavyweights

Answer: Tony Iommi

Born in Birmingham in 1948, Anthony Frank Iommi is one of the most influential and recognizable guitarists in rock. His playing style was affected by the loss of the tips of his middle and ring finger of his right hand when working in a factory as a teenager. As a consequence, he had to learn to play left-handed and make a number of adjustments to his playing, which resulted in his distinctive style - highly effective though not as technically sophisticated as other famous guitarists'. In 1968, together with Ozzy Osbourne, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler, he formed Earth, whose name was changed to Black Sabbath a few months later. The band's self-titled debut album, released in 1970, is considered one of the first heavy metal albums, and still sounds powerful almost five decades later. Iommi remained the only constant member of Black Sabbath throughout the years; he also released three excellent solo albums between 2000 and 2005. Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin), Brian May (Queen) and Leslie West (Mountain) are also counted among the greats of hard rock guitar. West, however, is American, whereas the others are English.
