It would be nice if this quiz worked like the R & R Hall of Fame Quiz - when you enter a last name the first comes up and you get credit for it.

Very strange. I’m showing just last names should be acceptable for all.

Nope. I tried Wilson (for Anne and Nancy of Heart), and even Brian Wilson didn't pop up. Others like (Steve) Perry, (Etta) James, (Elton) John as well.

Yes, it's frustrating when you fill in a last name and it doesn't give credit. Or, rather some do and some don't.

looks like Steven Tyler, Steve Perry, Elton John, Etta James, and Brian Wilson all need full names. Well, Elton John and Etta James will give it to you on the first name but not the last.

i quit this one about 2/3 of the way in because of the inconsistent way the names are listed. it should be set up so you need last name only on ALL of them
