Aside from this track which opens the album, "Black Sabbath" also contains the track "N.I.B." which continues to be a Sabbath fan favourite well into the 2000s and a cover of Crow's "Evil Woman" (1969) which was also recorded in 1970 by Ike and Tina Turner, although they switched the gender to make the song "Evil Man".

From Quiz Clssc Rck Mssng Lttrs - Nmbr 1

Answer: Kill

Surely I'm not the only person who thinks that Burke Shelley of Budgie and Geddy Lee of Rush were separated at birth? Not only do they sound very similar but they could be twins. Budgie... "Who?" You may well ask! Fact: Budgie was a highly respected, hardworking and exciting live band in their day; that 'day' of course being back in the late 60s and early 70s. Budgie was formed in Cardiff during 1967 by Burke Shelley, Tony Bourge and Ray Phillips and are today considered to be one of the founding fathers of the heavy metal genre. This album, 'In For The Kill', was the band's fourth studio recording and their first commercially successful release reaching, as it did, the number 29 spot on the UK album chart. The band are still together today, if currently on hiatus due to Burke Shelley suffering an aortic aneurism that forced the band to cancel their 2010 European tour. If you don't believe what I say about Burke and Geddy, just listen to songs 'Breadfan', 'In for the Kill' or 'Zoom Club' and let me know what you think!

From Quiz Keep Your Composer!

Answer: Handel

George Frideric Handel was a German composer best known for his operas and choral compositions. His 1742 piece "Messiah" remains one of his best-known works and very easily identifiable. He was born in 1685 in Prussia and his father was the court barber/surgeon (at that time, the two professions were related). Handel was influenced early on by church music and is said to have practiced on a secret clavichord. Handel got his big break when he was able to impress Duke Johann Adolf I with his organ playing. The Duke would go on to become Handel's benefactor and sponsor. After studying music in Germany, Handel moved to Italy, and from there to England, where he lived for the rest of his life. In total, Handel composed 42 operas, 25 oratorios, and hundreds of other smaller pieces.

26. From 1978, which was the last studio album by Rainbow to feature the vocal talents of Ronnie James Dio?

From Quiz Letters From A 70s Rock Band

Answer: Long Live Rock 'N' Roll

Following "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll" (1978), Dio left the band and was replaced by Graham Bonnet, with whom Rainbow tasted chart success in USA and had their first top ten hits in UK. Stand out tracks on the album apart from the title track were "Kill The King", "Gates Of Babylon" and "L.A. Connection". "Difficult To Cure" was a Rainbow album from 1981, which apart from Ritchie Blackmore saw none of the same musicians as "Long Live Rock 'N' Roll". "Excitable Boy" (1978) was from the great Warren Zevon and contained the track, "Werewolves Of London", while "Nightflight To Venus" was from the very non rocking, Boney M.

27. The ten part track, "A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers" took up the whole B side of which 1971 album from Van der Graaf Generator?

From Quiz Letters From A Prog Rock Band

Answer: Pawn Hearts

"Pawn Hearts" not only contained just the one track on the B side, it only had two tracks, "Lemmings" and "Man-Erg" on the A side. Like its predecessor, "H to He, Who Am The Only One", "Pawn Hearts" didn't trouble the charts in the band's native UK, in fact after 1970s "The Least We Can Do Is Wave to Each Other" charted in the UK Top 100, the band would have to wait until 2016 for their next chart success. "Teaser And The Firecat" (1971) was a Cat Stevens release, and "The Low Spark Of High Heeled Boys" was a 1971 album from Traffic.

Answer: Guitar

The use of guitar-like instruments dates back thousands of years; by 1200, however, two musical instruments called "guitars", a Latin guitar and a Moorish guitar, were being played in Spain. By the 15th century, a guitarlike instrument called a vihuela was being used, and by the 16th century, it looked much like a modern guitar in appearance. Today classical guitars are known as "Spanish guitars". They are made with nylon strings and are played by plucking while the guitarist is seated.
