Wanted - Ten easy Manband related quiz questions
« on: October 31, 2009, 03:53:24 PM »
I'm just re-instating the Manband quiz section on the Archive.

I've created sets of twenty questions for the medium (Manfans), hard (Manoraks), impossible (Maniacs) and non-Man (Man Overboard) quizzes.

As part of the preparation I'm now inviting contributions of questions for the entry level quiz, which I'll be calling "Interested Bystanders".

If you can't manage ten questions I'll happily take five. If you can't manage five, I'll delete your Manband Forum account and banish you to the wilderness forever  ;D

Still working on including graphics and sound-clips, but you never know.

All ideas welcomed. Just post a reply to this message, as I'd expect most people who frequent this forum would be able to answer the easy questions without missing a step. No need to supply answers, I'll contact you seperately if you come up with something that leaves me completely flummoxed.
Boldly going.......

Not sure how easy these are.
1 Who supported Man on the Spring Tour 1974?

2 What was the name of the mail order service set up by A.H.A?

3 When Man played the Reading Festival in 1972 which day did they play: Friday, Saturday or Sunday?

4 Who were the headliners when Man played Cardiff Castle in 1975?

5 Who shot Mickey?

As much as I've enjoyed reading the suggestions so far, I think the easy questions should be the most fundamental Man facts. That's odd, I've gone all serious.

So how about....

1. From which country did the band originate;
2. Who was the only ever-present member until retiring through ill-health;
3. Their most famous album;
4. One of their most famous songs was named after a fruit - which one?
5. Name the guitarist who also had a solo career with his band 'Iceberg'.....

Whose hand is pictured on the cover of Maximum Darkness?
Which Man is smoking in blue?
What sort of profession was Micky Jones' learned trade?
Who inspired Mr Leonard to re-christen himself Deke?
Which Man is known for a strange choice of shoes?

I really like your suggestions to the Rhinos title esp. who shot Micky!  ;D

Some great questions there chaps. Please do keep them coming.

I think some of the suggestions may go into more challenging quizzes than the entry level.

My favourite so far is definitely "Who shot Micky?"

Ho! True enough, Mr H. Shows you how much they know! Nevertheless....good point, could cause confusion and unrest, particularly amongst the more militant botanists. Could reword the question along the lines of 'name the song that could be found in a fruit and veg shop'...

Who is the guy with his back to the camera on the cove of Rhinos?

Is it not John the Helps Manager? If not, why not?
