Last week’s Rockucation question: Who is Paul David Hewson?
Who is he? Answer: Bono.
Winner/s: Buddy Denomme, North Smithfield, RI, and Nina McCarthy, Westerly, RI
This week’s Rockucation question is: This three piece band, originally wanted Mitch Mitchell as their drummer, but they went with the drummer from Atomic Rooster. Rumor had it that they were going to hire Jimi Hendrix, but he died before they could have him audition. It would have changed the band name forever. What is the band and what would have it been called if he did join.
