Encore Question of December 6, 1997.

  1. George Harrison
  2. Pete Best
  3. Paul McCartney
  4. Ringo Starr
  5. John Lennon

Tonight I have a big lead on MADDOG Bill as we've been the only one's playing tonight in a small crowd of patrons. MADDOG has won TuneUp but I won the other rounds. I have 17656 points against his 11337 and put 50% on the line when I see such an obvious Beatles question.

Question:...Which member of The Beatles played sitar on 'Within You Without You' and 'Norwegian Wood'?

Well no problem and even Bill calls it out before we can answer. I was thinking it would be something much harder than this.

Correct Answer: 1. George Harrison

I'm right and win with 26484 points good for 8th all time on the bar's Hall of Fame List. I have all 10 spots. I earn 2000+ points and finish 541st in North America. The bar with only us two players finishes 2200th.

The band tonight was 'Hocus Pocus' who are a quartet of guys. Guitar, guitar, bass, and drums who changed there rocking style when they had a female vocalist come on stage for part of a set and she sang some country songs.

Other games:
9:00pm...Wipeout...5136/15000...3/3...1000+ Players Plus points...5551st in North America...bar is 2036th...SQUISH wins...(a better score if I'd arrived before the seventh question).
9:30pm...Wipeout...13287/15000...2/3...1000+ points...111th in NA, bar is 1325th...IMEMEI wins and is 71st in NA. IMEMEI was Bill but the battery had run out on his previous Playmaker.
10:00pm...Playback (see above).
11:00pm...RetroTV...13694/15000...1/4...1000+ points...197th in NA, bar is 972nd.

Went home early even though I knew I'd miss the next two Saturdays while on vacation.
