    Quiz #30

    This rock-and-roll singer was born, in the 30s, in the eighth most populous state in the United States.
    His early music influence was country music.

    The song was written by a singer/songwriter/actor/musician who is no longer with us.

    Slewfoot, Yes, Yes, Yes and Yes. Very, very good.
    The connection that Ringo Starr had was; he joined the Beatles in 1962. That was the year "The Swiss Maid" by Del Shannon was released.

    It can be heard at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIo6f462Y1c

    Good morning America - just got out of bed. Went to a Christmas party last night, so slept in a bit this morning.

    I'm sorry - a special hello to Canada, and all the world for that matter.
