Let's play a game

Post by Gabriëlle » 17 Mar 2009, 14:29

A very easy game to play to put your knowlegde on Chris Rea to the test. I'm gonna start by asking a question and the person following me can give the answer and give us a new question. So let's play!!!!!!!!!

My question to anyone that knows the answer;

There is the suggestion that Chris Rea started his musical carreer in a local group, what was the name of that group????????

Upon a summer wind there's a certain melody
Takes me back to the place that I know
Down on the beach

Good question , Peter .......... the writer of the movie Soft Top Hard Shoulder was fellow Glaswegian Peter Capaldi ( I know his brother-in-law , and he recently told me that Peter Capaldi was delighted with the music CR supplied for his movie)The director was Stefan Schwartz

My question !........Legend has it that Magdalene's original singer was David Coverdale .....who later joined Deep Purple ......whose guitarist is name-checked in the sleevenotes of Blue Street(Five Guitars), as Chris is a big fan of his slide guitar playing................who is he ????? ..clue ; he replaced Richie Blackmore
And if you do not know the answer ......GOOGLE comes in handy :lol:

I guess that would be Peter Capaldi (writer) and Stefan Schwartz (director).

Which makes it up to me to come up with the next question; what do Chris Rea and Felicity Kendal have in common?

Gabrielle came up with a fun game for the forum , and due to a mix-up between myself & Bart , then me setting a ridiculously vague next question ,.....( ,just in case anyone is interested , the answer was Tommy Bolin ...,..go to page one of Hofner Blue Notes album , it says "Wes Montgomery meets Tommy Bolin ........")

AS the game has "fizzled " out ................let me start again....

New Question ; .....Who appears as a nun in the video for the song "QUE SERA" ????
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXiPO3FFfsg

Clue ....it's not Tommy Bolin ....or Tommy Cooper .....or Tommy Hilfiger ......or Tommy Dorsey....or Tommy Lee Jones .....or Tommy Steele ....or Tommy by The WHO

And remember , the winner must come up with the next question .........

Hi Peter,

I don't know the answer! I just thought it was a good question! .... :lol: :lol: :lol:

I could find out in time though.....

But I guess to keep the game going we'll skip to the next question:

How many times was Chris Rea nominated for the Brits Award Video, what years and for which songs?


Cheers,

Lily
