Tonight I'm behind HONEY who has 21122 points while I have 18725. I was a co-winner in TuneUp but fell to 6th or 7 players after the OnBeat round with only 8000 points. I pulled up to 4th in JukeBox by winning it and 2nd by having a pretty good round in Triviaoke. I'll need to do better than 3500 of 9000 in OnBeat.

I wasn't even thinking about how difficult the question would be and put 50% on the line for this:

Question:...This leader of the Blue Caps was inducted in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

Alright no problem for me and thanks as it was a long question to jot down. I wouldn't understand the Hall Of Fame connection as he only had about six hits and one really huge hit...'BeBopALu'. I entered my answer and wondered if this was balance for all the questions about new artists this summer's tours in this week's games. (Yes as I discovered I won!).

Correct Answer:...3 Gene Vincent

I'm right and win with 28087 points. Only two others of the other seven players are right. SHARKY finishes 2nd with 20884. I finish 210th in North America but the bar crashes to 1067th. I earn 2000 Players Plus Points for the game and finish 3rd of 5 on the bar's reset Hall Of Fame board.

Other games:
9:30pm...Wipeout...7097/15000...3rd/5...3560th in North America...bar is 1324th...500 or 1000 P+ points?...TUSK wins...arriving before the 6th question would have helped my score.
10:00pm...Playback (see above).
11:00pm...RetroTV...11242/15000...2nd/9...209th in NA...bar is 336th...1000+ points...TEUFEL wins.
11:30pm...Countdown...6329/15000...4th/7...4407th in NA...bar is 1049th...500+ as minimum was 9000 and only winner BOZU achieved that. (tough standards last game with 9000 and next with 8000).
12:00am...Countdown...10071/15800...1st/7...205th in Canada...bar is 540th...1000+ points.
12:30am...Countdown...12036/15000...1st/8...80th in NA...bar is 238th...1000+ points.

Most of the regulars aren't there tonight but I talked to MRKOOL a former Joe Grinders patron like me for the last hour of my stay. I won three tickets from the bar for winning three games tonight and they can be saved up and traded in for food or clothing when you have enough of them.
