(Check Update!) Can You Identify These Rock n Roll Sillouettes?


This is a pretty cool T-Shirt which you can purchase here if you'd like, it comes without the numbers those were added so we can GUESS who's who on this shirt.
Now, who's gonna help me figure out who these people are.


UPDATE! Ok, we have the official answer keeper letting us know where we are wrong, so lets try and fill in the blanks, I know we (as in all of you who are way better at this than me) can figure this out!. Here is what we have so far:

1. Roger Daltrey (me)
2. Ian Anderson (Music Obsessive)
3. Pete Townsend (Art)
4. Mick Jagger
5. Jimi Hendrix (Malcolm)
6. Duane Allman (me)
7. Roger Waters
8. Janis Joplin (Elena)
9. George Harrison (Elena)
10. Robert Plant (Jeff)
11. Bob Dylan (Art)
12. Freddie Mercury (Eric)
13. Neil Young (Art)
14.Angus Young (Eric)
15. Ray Davies
16. Lou Reed (Malcolm)
17. Paul McCartney (Malcolm))
18, Eric Clapton (Art)
19. Jimmy Page (Music Obsessive)

incorrect are:

6, 9, 12 and 26.

the generation is artists who peaked from 1962-1972. so that would rule out bono, slash… etc.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Well damn, at least I got David Bowie right or I'd be really bummed!

is 2 Janis, and 3 Elvis?

I better stop guessing, I'm not very good at this!

Malcolm said...

I think that 17 is Paul McCartney and 5 is Jimi Hendrix (since they are both lefties, I am going by the directions in which their instruments are pointing).

My guess for 9 is Brian Jones. The silhouette is posed just like he was when he and the rest of the Stones performed "Paint It Black" on "The Ed Sullivan Show".

I agree with your guess for #28 (Stevie Nicks). However, Chopshopstore's hint that the artists peaked from 1962-72 would seem to rule Stevie out.

If I can think of any others, I'll come back.

musicobsessive said...

I'd say 2 is Ian Anderson (plus flute) and 19 could be Jimmy Page with the double neck guitar?

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Malcolm, you're quite brilliant.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Obsessive, you are right...that is a flute! Gotta be Ian. I think 9 is Robert Plant. I know Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger and Bob Dylan have to be in there....I think Janis is the one lying down...???? LOL this is hard.

Eric said...

#12 looks like Freddie Mercury.
#14 looks like Angus Young.
#24 Bruce Springsteen? He's playing a telecaster isn't he.

artster, #7 can't be George Harrison because it looks like a bass guitar he's carrying. Could it be Jack Bruce?

Starrlight said...

5 has to be Hendrix

David Amulet said...

Awesome. Simply awesome.

Now I want one with drum kits to identify.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Art, I'm impressed. I can't wait to see if your answers are right, I don't have them yet but will soon.

Eric - YES! 12 is so obvious now! That is TOTALLY Freddie! And I think you are right on about Angus and Bruce too. I can't believe I didn't recognize Bruce!

Starr, yep I'd say it is.

Anyone have a guess on 27??

wanderingspace.net said...

chopshopstore said...

artister is wrong on:

4, 8, 9, 16, 22, 23, 28

dr john is wrong on:

6, 8, 9(close), 12, 26

wanderingspace.net said...

glen campbell?

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

This is too fun! I love seeing the guesses and having an "Insider" come by that knows the answers to let us know which ones we got wrong!

Keep guessing, we can do this!

Artster63 said...

Ouch! I'm going back to the drawing board. Are we still working with '62-'72?

Angela said...

The only one I knew was Jimi Hendrix. Number 5. As for the others? No idea.

Jeff said...

I'm going to do my best to guess the remainder.

10. Robert Plant
16. Roy Orbison
23. Donovan
26. Slash

wanderingspace.net said...

on the main list above… 24 and 9 are wrong.

wanderingspace.net said...

Jeff got:

10. Robert Plante

RIGHT!

Jeff said...

If 16 isn't Roy Orbison, is it Buddy Holly?

chopshopstore said...

no… its someone who would be considered a legend by other musicians. think… “first alternative band” ever.

wanderingspace.net said...

and yes. i should have said they peaked from 1962-1975.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Dang, this is getting good....we're closing in!

Malcolm said...

Based on Chopshopstore's hints, I will guess that #16 is Lou Reed.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Malcolm, I will shocked if that's not right. Good one!

David Amulet said...

27: Ravi Shankar with a tophat on?

Dr. John said...

Upon further review, I think #24 is The Boss.

Dang! I thought I had #8.

The Rock Brigade Blogger said...

Those remaining answer really got me stumped, yet they are all so familar looking. Number Jerry Garcia?? I don't think it is.

Can't wait to see the complete list.

The Rock Brigade Blogger said...

Oops - my previous comment should have read number 25 Jerry Garcia.

chopshopstore said...

#16 IS LOU REED

RAVI SHANKAR is not on this design

BRUCE is not on this design.

#25 is not Jerry Garcis… but…

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Ok, I'm ready to take some wild guesses....How about #26 is Marc Bolan; 24 Keith Richards;

Artster63 said...

Been doing some studying. I'm thinking #9 is Donovan. If we need to get technical, it's Shawn Phillips, who played the "sitar" on Donovan's "Sunshine Superman".

Um, yes, my fingers are crossed.

elena672 said...

Barbara,
I'm guessing #6 is John Entwistle.

This is cool! :)

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Art - what a great guess I hope you are right I ADORE Donovan!!!! I saw him in concert in the 90's and he was the same (just a bit older) it was a very small venue and I loved it.

Elena, ohhhhh interesting guess!!!! I'd like to hear how you came up with that.

Ok Wandeing in Space/Chop Store - we need you !!! Hints ???

elena672 said...

Ok, now I'm second guessing myself :) If 6 isn't John Entwistle, maybe Dave Mason? And I think that 4 is Mick Jagger.

elena672 said...

Trying to help fill in the blanks...

7 - Jack Bruce
8 - Janis Joplin
9 - George Harrison
22 - Rod Stewart
28 - Grace Slick

That's all I've got. I think there's smoke coming from my ears. :)

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Elena - great guesses. I am ready for the answers!!!!! I will email the guy who knows and see if he'll tell me then I can give a few hints before we finish off the list!

wanderingspace.net said...

artster’s list:

4 is Mick jagger
6 is wrong
9 is wrong
24 is keith richards
26 is jerry garcia
28 is wrong

elena’s list:

8 is Janis
9 YES it is George Harrison
7, 22 and 28 are wrong

wanderingspace.net said...

6 is hard… southern rocker

7 is also tough… part of a group that justifiably probably should have 2 people in here.

15 is tough. what he is holding is a cup of tea.

22 don’t think its a tough one… based in part on a pretty well know image of him on a live album.

23 also not hard i think. other than dylan… who is the biggest male folk rocker?

25 i think is the hardest one. very well respected/influential by other musicians, but probably not recognizable by a majority of the public. same goes for #7.

27 he has been mentioned in here, but not for the correct number.

28 is Stevie Nicks which was ruled out accidentally as i had been mistakenly saying 65-75. its really more about a generation/attitude of rock despite what years they peaked.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Ok....I don't want to give myself an unfair advantage by guessing first with these new clues but I have to take a stab at two of these...

Could 6 be Duane Allman??

And 15 Cat Stevens? (tea - tea for the Tillerman?)

Malcolm said...

Based on the latest hints, here are some more guesses:

6. Ronnie Van Zant

22. Joe Cocker

23. Paul Simon

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

MALCOLM! YOU ARE RIGHT THAT HAS TO BE RONNIE V.Z.!!! Your too good at this. I was going to guess Paul Simon to (the hint made it obvious).

Joe Cocker - that's a good guess too probably right.

Did I mention the person who guesses the most gets a prize???????

chopshopstore said...

Could 6 be Duane Allman??

YES

23. Paul Simon

YES

elena672 said...

I'm back for more!

7 - Roger Waters
15 - Ray Davies
22 - Joe Cocker
25 - David Crosby

Still stumped on 27.

Dr. John said...

Could 7 be Bob Weir???

chopshopstore said...

7. WATERS

YES

15. RAY DAVIES

YES

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Elena - you are gooooooooood!

elena672 said...

Thanks! If I were really good, I'd be able to tell you 22, 25 and 27!! LOL :)

Don't think I'm still not racking my brain over here. =)

Bond said...

OK I think 22 is Roger Daltry and #27 is Slash

elena672 said...

Ok, my last go...

27 - Marc Bolan

:)

chopshopstore said...

27 - YES TREX

chopshopstore said...

25 i am not surprised people cannot get… but 22 makes me think i will need to revise on re-print.

anyone interested in just hearing the last 2?

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

ok....I give up, YES, please share the last two!!!

wanderingspace.net said...

you got them from the hints! oddly enough… the last one blank was already confirmed as TREX.

TIS COMPLETE!

chopshopstore said...
