After Mick Taylor's departure from the Rolling Stones, what guitarist auditioned for the band, then hastily left Mick Jagger a note saying he had changed his mind and wanted to persue a solo career instead?

Bingo....Oily!!

Jeff Beck shunned the Stones to pursue his solo career (he ended up recording the masterpiece "Blow By Blow" with George Martin...).

YOU'RE KIDDING ME? I'M ON THE BOARD! I'M APOPLECTIC! I'M BESIDE MYSELF (as usual, i'm a little over to the left).

i've only read about 8 of these 29 pages, so i don't know what has been asked. i don't know anything anyway. ok, who was on the rosters of both the 1959 Milwaukee Braves and the 1970 Chicago Cubs?

what is peter tork's real name?

Peter Torkelson is Tork's real name. No idea on the baseball quiz though, oily.

well, we'll forgive that (it is Al Spangler, by the way).

close enough, it is Thorkelson actually, with the middle name of Halsten.

move along...

That ain't a reason not to answer. You get your point, then you help someone (like me) get an easy point with an easy question.

Google tells me you're right, so I give you official approval to ask one (as I lie in waiting, and please make it as easy for me as the Mick Ronson one I missed!).

Dang, can only think of Dizzy Gillespie, but I suspect that's wrong. So much for the easy point.
