I only got 4 or 5 right, and I love old rock-n-roll (I'm 51, I guess I should!). Question #2 confuses me. How many were related, answer one? In order to be related, you have to be related to someone else. I think the answer is two are related. Isn't Brian Wilson's cousin in there somewhere? I'm sure all of them were related to someone else in the universe. I remember listening to Wolfman Jack when I was in high school. It was considered oldies THEN (early 70s).
