From Mozart to Usher, peaks and troughs.

Was surprised #18 didn't work with just the first name.

Yup, if you can accept #11 by first name, surely you can for #18.

Isn't his stage *only* Usher? Ringo Starr is known mostly by his first name, it's true, and isn't going to be confused with another Ringo. In fact, I couldn't name another Ringo.

@martay: We have a Ringo Rinfret in Québec. He's a parody of American crooners, but the cheap kind who would play in malls. Google the name! It's in French, but the guy's pretty funny even if you don't understand the lyrics.

"Star", but not "Ringo"? You accept "Elvis" in #2 and "Snoop" for Snoop Dogg in #5. Ringo is also generally a first name performer.

Well I knew them all by face so that must mean that they are at least well known. If their music is good or not is another thing.

There were only four I didn't know - and one I'm kicking myself for missing - so I assume those four are well known to some people at least. Just curious, who of these do you not consider famous? Or, as Jorissie said, do you think some of them don't deserve to be singled out?

Every single person on here is very famous. You understand that your personal familiarity with someone is not the measure of fame, right?

I'm not sure who you're talking to, but incase its me, then yes, I know. I'm just stating my ignorance of famous musicians' faces, that's all.

I don't see the word "famous" written anywhere on this quiz. Only "musicians". And since they all are musicians, I don't see where the problem is.

I will always remember Ringo as he was in the '60s. I looked at his photo and thought, "Who is that old guy? I know I've seen him somewhere."

Miles Davis sure looks like Louis Armstrong!

Level 83
May 17, 2018
Uh huh. I retyped it about 20 times then went to the next most famous trumpeter when I resigned to the fact he wasn't the answer. I did an image search on Davis and that is literally the only one out of hundreds that he remotely looks like Armstrong.

Yup- if I was sure of one thing, it was that was NOT Miles Davis! Started to type him out of desperation at the last minute but ran out of time. Funny how aggravating those moments are!

I love it. Only, I do find that it needs Beethoven, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and Taylor Swift. Maybe throw in John Lennon or George Harrison in there, too, because I love MJ and the Beatles.

Not to be "that guy", but I tried David Jones, Reginald Dwight, and Paul Hewson, none of which worked for the appropriate picture.
