sloppy game. you did the extras wrong (you have to put the "ee" in the third column) and you misspelled "Entwistle" and "McCready". and those are just the names i know are wrong.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 05:08 GMT
also, you spelled "mckagan" wrong
Oct 28th, 2009 at 05:21 GMT
why can't you just put barrett?
Oct 28th, 2009 at 05:45 GMT
great concept, just need to iron out some of the wrinkles with names

Bruce Johnston is broken too.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 15:18 GMT
you need to specify a time period
Oct 28th, 2009 at 15:24 GMT
syd barrett should not be a bonus answer. he was an integral member
Oct 28th, 2009 at 16:13 GMT
I agree with rave, i know many people acknowledge Barrett as the most influential member; even if he did go a little nuts.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 16:46 GMT
Would be good to add other members as bonus answers: e.g. Jack Irons for Pearl Jam and RHCP. In any case, need to say up front and be consistent about whether it's founding members or currently lineup.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 16:55 GMT
Barrett was gone by the time Gilmour joined the band. Barrett was definitely a major influence on the band, but as much as Piper at the Gates of Dawn,you can hardly consider him the most influential band member. He was long gone by the time of what many consider classic Floyd, ie Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, and the Wall. While his descent into madness inspired many of the ideas on these albums, he had nothing to do with the actual music making process. A time period is not a bad idea. Or even fixing on a specific album. For instance, the Beach Boys had several more members associated with the band, including Blondie Chaplin who was a big influence on their later period stuff. You can hardly include Brian Jones on the Stones without mentioning Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood, who arguably are more associated with the band than Brian. Also, besides Fleetwood and McEvie, the Mac had several completely different lineups until Buckingham and Nicks joined the band. Peter Green wouldn't be a bad candidate for a bonus answer. Also, I'm not sure if it was just me but I had to type in Zack De La Rocha's full name, when typing in Wilson gave me 3/6 of the Beach Boys. Maybe you should have to type in Brian, Carl, and Dennis ' first and last names. Other than that, and the spelling errors, great idea for a quiz.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 17:23 GMT
John Entwistle, not Entwhistle. Also, yeah, almost all of the bands on here have gone through significant lineup changes (at least nine different people have played in The Rolling Stones, for instance, and Brian Jones died in 1969, before some of their biggest hits).
Oct 28th, 2009 at 17:40 GMT
Because last words are accepted it only accepts "Rocha" for Zach de la Rocha and "Halen" for Alex/Eddie van Halen. You might want to put full surnames as alternate answers.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 18:00 GMT
Good idea, poor execution. If you are going to accept last names, it should accept ALL last names, including Van Halen and Matthews.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 18:28 GMT
Also, Eddie Van Halen is listed as "Edward" in the liner notes of every album. You should accept that, too.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 20:44 GMT
Sammy Hagar should be included for Van Halen, at least as a bonus.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 22:24 GMT
Yeah, there's a lot of potential bonuses. Beatles (Pete Best, Stu Sutcliffe), RHCP (Hilel Slovak), Metallica (Jason Newstead), GNR (Buckethead), Fleetwood Mac (a bunch), Rolling Stones (Brian Jones &c), etc. etc. Otherwise, I like it.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 22:55 GMT
Already mentioned but Duff McKagan is spelled wrong.
Oct 29th, 2009 at 02:34 GMT
GNR has had WAY more than 5 members - I wrote a quiz: www.sporcle.com/games/bosoxfanzz/gnr_members/ Anyway, in particular, please accept matt sorum - steven adler was only on for the first few albums (though they were the only good ones).
Oct 29th, 2009 at 03:24 GMT
Very fun game! The only bands I could name all the members of were The Beatles, The Who, and The Clash. I could not for the life of me remember drummer of U2. I could remember his first name was Larry but not his last name.
Oct 30th, 2009 at 04:37 GMT
I entered Syd Barrett like 20 times. I even tried different spellings. What...what am I supposed to be entering here? This makes no sense. Also, I was going to comment that you misspelled Entwistle, and I'm glad to see I've been beaten to the punch.
Oct 30th, 2009 at 16:21 GMT
there is no dave krusen in pearl jam, matt cameron is the drummer
Nov 3rd, 2009 at 05:52 GMT
WHY IS THERE NO AEROSMITH?! One of the most iconic bands of all time with very notable members, I was disappointed when they weren't on this quiz.
