  2. Eddie Cochrane
  3. Buddy Holly
  4. Roy Orbison
  5. Bill Haley

Tonight I'm in 4th place with a low score of 16065 points thanks to about my worst OnBeat round ever with 750 points out of 9000. Strange that noone at the bar ran away with this round as I was less than 5000 points behind after this. I had a perfect JukeBox round for 6000 points and an OK Triviaoke round to be behind the leader JARVIS who had 17798. I was not playing with the regulars this week who had a booth but at the bar with TREV, BERGIE and some guys who left midgame to play pool.

Question:...This pioneer is considered the first rock star to utilize overdubbing:

I didn't know this but pressed in Roy Orbison while thinking about the scene in "The Buddy Holly Story" where the band discovers the cricket behind the egg crates in their studio. Got to write down the question quickly in a confined space. Also a player saying he was guessing Eddie Cochrane and a non-player asking me what 'overdubbing' was. Enya's overdubs songs on 'Shepherd Moons' 900 times also crossed my mind but that doesn't help me now. Roy Orbison ? Well I was talking about him with a friend on Friday night about Travelling Wilburys and thinking of their harmonies.

Correct Answer:.....3. Buddy Holly

I'm wrong and finish 8th with 8033 points. That's 7613rd in North America. The bar is 415th on the continent. I earn 1500+ Players Plus points. JARVIS wins with 26697 points.
