Subject: A pictorial quiz - Paul is the winner !

Written By: FussBudgetVanPelt on 09/10/06 at 11:37 pm

Hi

Dunno how well this will work given I find it hard to get here regularly - but I will do my best !

Here are some pics of someone you know, or at least, have heard of (unless you have lived in a cave)  ;D

Thing is, they were taken when the singer were sort of young...and they look different than those of you who know them would have been used to.  I had never even seen this person look this way.

So - here are the pictures - the question is - WHO is it ?


I will come back to look at your guesses.  If no-one gets it I was thinking of making it a yes/no quiz, that is, ask a question which can be answered by a yes or no answer - in the end someone will work it out !

Good luck !  :)

Hello :)

It DOES look like Ray Davies, that is a good guess.  It is a wrong guess, but a good one  ;D

You have the time period correct however  ;)

Damn !  Also wrong but that was the other likely face that was going through my head !  :)  Good try W-Dog !

The thing to bear in mind here is that the person didn't look like this when they became 'better known' shall we say....  ;)

In all honesty I do not know - it was supposedly done live but is obviously lip synching - there is nothing in the background in the clip to suggest what show it is
