14. Nah don't think the answer is Blondie, but
it does remind me she was invented & drawn
in that wonderful - yet bygone - golden era
when women proudly possessed attractively
large and beautiful tits
Slasher lives!

4 - is it from St John's? Evening Telegram or some such?

19 - Bonnie Prince Charlie?

22 - Typhoid?

24 - author - Pete Seeger

42/46 - Willie Nelson

52 - Nellie Melba?

71e - Maybe a bonus point for getting the artist right? - it was Blue Suede



For what it's worth (see what I did there?) I prefer these mixed quizzes to the all-music ones - gives more people a chance. Great job!!

More correct answers, scores edited.

Where I'm from Blanche is a woman's name, as in Blanche Neige Et Les Sept Nains, and it's spelled Blanche. See rule 4.
