Music Monday: Who Are You?

Posted by on Mon, May 19th, 2014 at 10:30 am

Happy Monday!  Who’s ready to rock this week out?!

In today’s Music Monday we’re celebrating the 69th birthday of one of the greatest rock guitarists of all time. Who? The Who’s Pete Townshend, of course!

Happy Birthday Pete!! And, as the principal songwriter for the group, he’s penned some of rocks greatest songs.  Here’s one:

Music Monday Trivia Question: What is Pete Townshend’s signature move and who inspired it?

The first three people to answer correctly will win 25 SB!  Congrats to ioretrofantasy, whom77, and berniesmom16!  Pete’s go-to move is the Windmill and it was inspired by Keith Richards, who he saw doing it while warming up for a Rolling Stones show.

Music Monday Discussion Question: If you were in a band, what would YOUR signature move be?

Let me know in the comments and tomorrow I’ll pick 3 random people and award them with 25 SB!  Thanks for your comments!!  Check your ledger to see if you were a 25 SB winner!

Have a great day!
