LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY BAND (Click link to refresh your memory.)

We’re scraping for answers, which is appropriate, as last week’s band was
SCRAPING FOR CHANGE. The band’s sound is “pure rock and it bleeds from our souls every night we play.”

Friday, Feb. 9, marks the anniversary of the day Ringo and his mates performed a few tunes on The Ed Sullivan Show and thus changed the world. Saturday, Feb. 10, marks Nigel Olsson’s birthday. Nigel powered the early, rockin’ Elton albums. Also that day, Taylor Hawkins will take a break from fighting foo to enjoy some cake. Thursday, Feb. 15, Kinky Mick Avory turns 63. And Wednesday, Feb. 14, 1965, is when Tama drums began, though the product line was called Star Drums, which were pretty cheap Japanese knockoffs. Now, of course, they’re collectors’ items.
