Hi everyone, I decided to make a thread in which we play a game.

Basically, someone (me first!) picks a famous punk musician, then leaves cryptic clues and it's up to everyone else to guess who it is. The musicians can't be too obscure either, or it's unfair.

Simple, eh?

No-one can post a riddle unless it's their turn!

Ok.

------------

Hall of Fame:

DempseyPunk (1)


----------

My band formed in 1974.

I am of short stature.

I worked with the band of gypsies.

I am of hungarian or polish descent, or somewhere like that. Not 100% sure.

EDIT: I am hungarian.

I play bluegrass type stuff now.

I wrote the band's best known song, and also a song that the Bay City Rollers wanted to buy.

Who am I?

didn´t you make such a thread like three years ago? (I like it, I´m just curious)

Yeah, he did, I remember the Billy Rath riddle.

Quote by BrianApocalypse
Yep, Tommy Ramone. Your turn Chris.


K I'll post back later once I have thought of something. Unless someone else wants to nick my go in the meantime

Ok:

Born David Letts in 1956

The only ever present member of his band

Worked as a gravedigger before making it in music

Got married the same year he joined his band

In 2004 he turned on some Christmas lights in Cambridge
Super Leeds and Classy Cas!

Lol, you could have answered it. No-one answered it, and the thread died.

The clue was like 'I was in the heartbreakers, and am associated with grapes', which wasn't that cryptic.

Lavazza's turn, although he's probably gone off to his gig now.
#11
^no they are tomorrow.....I´m working on it, wait a moment please

Here it is.....

He was a gay porn actor before he founded that band

The name of that band is the same as the name of one of the daughters of a well known Romanian football player from their "Golden Generation"

The first Hispanic-American playmate, Ester Cordet, was Miss _______

He helped to built up (Banned from) ________ (OK, I never liked to play there anyway)


This is it.......EDIT: I probably won´t be online tomorrow, so maybe check yourself if it´s ok

Clues 2 and 3 were too cryptic and confusing, but I only needed the first one: who else but Gene October of Chelsea fame. The last one confirms that, too, so it's my turn!

This one's easy:

-----

I play guitar in a punk rock band.

I used to look funny because my ears stuck out. It's OK though, because I was always more interested in substance over image.

Now I look angry most of the time, and wear tinted glasses.

I am quite tall.

I am obsessed with Syd Barrett.

I have just released a solo album.

My real second name sounds like a food seasoning.

Who am I?

I don't know about the other clues, but based on these I'll guess East Bay Ray.

For the record, I don't think these are really riddles.

Oh, I forgot about that. I shouldn't have answered, because I don't really want to do one. Oh well. Since I don't know or care much about musicians' personal lives, I'll do a really obvious one.

I was a really sloppy musician, but it "worked" for my music.

I was in two major bands and also had a notable solo career. I've worked with a bunch of famous punk musicians.

I'm credited with introducing heroin to the London punk scene.

I've been dead for quite some time. I may have been murdered.

My drug dealer son is in prison.

Now this is an easy one.

Well, this was my reasoning,
Jello was a singer in a punk band
He would have been about the right age to be born in 55, but looking back it wouldn't have made much sense (I didn't look that one up though)
Started Alternative Tentacles
Was arrested for a couple of things, couldn't really sort out one for playing on a rooftop
Left Dead Kennedys because of lawsuits and of course East Bay Ray being a total jackass

the second one just needed to be wikied and then you get "october" and the third one was Dan Petrescu and he played for Chelsea a long time, therefore it wasn´t that hard......
#28
What you put - 'The name of that band is the same as the name of one of the daughters of a well known Romanian football player from their "Golden Generation"' - was just confusing.

I have no idea what the answer to Dempsey's riddle is. If no-one else knows it, post an easier one, and I'll give you a point on the leaderboard.

see what you mean........I thought someone would think

Golden Generation of Romania -> Hagi, Moldovan, Ilie, Popescu, Munteanu, Filipescu, Petrescu -> Petrescu = long time Chelsea defender -> Chelsea-> ahhhhhh


and I don´t know DempseyPunk´s too

I know it, but I didn't want to have to make a new riddle. I think it's the guy from Raped/The Cuddly Toys. I don't care to look up his name.

Faebhean Kwest I think. But my source seems to imply that he auditioned to play guitar for the Pistols, not drums, so now I'm second-guessing myself.
#33
you are correct. But he played guitar in Raped/cuddly toys. He tried out for drums.

good job

I'm surprised Brian didn't get that one. Seems like a band he would be interested in.

If Jett were here I'm sure he'd have gotten it. That's probably as an obscure as we can go for this to remain a fun game.

Dempsey gets a point on the leaderboard. If Werty doesn't want to post a riddle, anyone else is welcome to.

Here's an easy one:

I'm short.


Glen Danzig?

And @ Dempsey, I think Ray is rather tall.
