Thought of 'Teddy Bear' first for the CB question, but the correct answer fits better.

There were a whole lot of rhinestone-studded performers in Las Vegas. My first guess was Glenn Campbell.

Tried Liberace, Elton John, Glenn "Rhinestone Cowboy"...of course I'm just making excuses for overlooking the painfully obvious...the State Farm commercial says it all.

Liberace gained fame as a pianist, not a singer, and Glen Campbell just wasn't on the same playing field as Elvis. Glen Campbell was more of a TV personality then with a few movie roles who occasionally played Vegas. He said that one of the most thrilling moments of his life was playing on the soundtrack for the Elvis movie, Viva Las Vegas. Elvis and Glen were friends and I liked them both, but ask anyone back then who wore rhinestones and sang in Vegas, and Elvis would be the first answer.

It was a club in the East Village (New York City) where a lot of punks bands built their followings, most notably the Ramones and Blondie (who, yes, was considered punk for a while). The club was an institution for decades, and it closed down about...ten years ago, maybe? They made a movie about its 1970s heyday that came out like five years ago, but it was pretty bad. Ron Weasley was in it. I don't recommend it. Listen to the music instead.

Never heard of it. Still can't believe I missed the answer, though. How many popular 70s music genres are there? I could have sworn I typed "punk." Maybe I only tried "funk."

Was really hoping the answer to the second question would be Queen.

At first, I thought the question was about Queen, and I couldn't think of why anyone would call them a fascist regime.

I thought it was about the band Queen the whole time, but I still figured the answer had to be the Sex Pistols, who else would call another band a fascist regime? Haha.
