This is the book I get the trickier ones from.



The cover shows Debbie Harry wearing a schoolgirls uniform. Apparently, according to the author, that wE considered as an image but Angus Young got there first. More's the pity.

Inspired by a previous piece of artwork that a band member had seen elsewhere?

Yes. All the covers are based on paintings by various different artists.

Should be an easy one.

Apart from Courtney Love (his partner) which singer's name featured in Curt Cobain's suicide note?

Clue: It was to do with confidence in front of audiences.

Yeah, not the one with the finger knives, the other one who the NME nicknamed Lord Lucan of Mercury.

Just to keep it going, connecting person who has played on songs by :-

China Crisis
Maxi Priest
Alison Moyet
The Animals
Queen
Wet Wet Wet
Boney M
George Michael
Fleetwood Mac
The Rolling Stones

If I was more specific, and put the particular records down, you'd have it in about 5 seconds, so sorry.

Pure guess. There aren't a huge group of people who've played on a Queen track, so I started with one of the obvious ones.
