I cannot believe ALL of our trivia questions and answers are GONE =(

Are there enough of us yet to play the Trivia Game?

They are still alive in the old message board if someone wants to copy/paste some of them over. I have turned on the hidden forums on the Club Cherry Bomb message board.

Took me a second to figure out how to see the old threads. On the CCB message board down at the bottom left below where the threads show be there is a box that says "Show:" and you have to drag that down and select "All dates" then the threads will appear!

Another tip for those wanting to harvest the content off of the Club message board is go into your My Home and then click display preferences. You can then tweak how many messages display on a page. Mine is set to 99 but I am not sure what the limit is.

In most browsers you could then just save the pages through the file/save menu. It would likely lose all images but the text would survive.

Okay, first Trivia Question:

No Better Than This was recorded in 3 places. Name the geographical locations and their significance?

OK, since nobody else has answered I will do the honors!!

No Better Than This was recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis; the First African Baptist Church in Savannah; and a hotel room in San Antonio where Robert Johnson cut some classic sides.  These locations are all significant in the roots of rock and roll and folk music.

O.k. here's a new one for all of us "old" folks.  What 80's Canadian television comedy series did John and his band perform (and act) on?  Hint: it was around the time of the release of American Fool.

Hmm, are the you the person who posted the SCTV clip on youtube?  If so, many thanks!  I always love seeing old footage of John before and right around the time he achieved major fame. Plus I used to do my own impression of Ed Grimley back then, and never knew that he and John had, uh...collaborated.  The shot of him with Grimley's voice is priceless!

No, I didn't put the clip up but I was at the taping and it was a very fun day!  The Youtube clip is only a partial of the show but this is probably due to copyright.  If I get around to it I may post the other musical number that was on that show. If memory serves me, it's been 28 years!!, it was Hand to Hold On To with Johnny LaRue (John Candy) and some of his "playboy" bunnies.   I just put a post in the "video" section about it.  I have the original show on VHS still (in my basement library).  I also have some photos of that day from behind the scenes and will scan them and post them on the "photos" section of this site.  It's amazing how young everyone looks but still the same!

Here you go....it is posted under the Photos section of this site; then go to the SCTV photos post.  My photos from that day are there too.

Enjoy!
