Erm.

#1 is Peter Gabriel
#11 is Count Basie

Erm... I'm guessing #2 is Peter, Paul and Mary... when they were younger. Thanks to sidhedevil posting their "now" picture, I guess it's them.

I wanna say #9 is the Clash, channeling the Sex Pistols.

Very well known group, too.

Yeah. I get nothing. It's like #11 on mine. I could see it but apparently sooper couldn't. I think it has to do with certain url links.

#5's Ofra Haza
#6's Squeeze (who I just KNEW was there)
#8's XTC
#12 I believe is the woman from Lone Justice (I do not remember her name)
And I ALMOST said that #8 was The Stranglers back around La Folie, but I think it's actually XTC in a contemporaneous photo.

Correct on all accounts.
#12 was, in fact, Maria McKee!

#4 Darryl Hall from Hall and Oates
#10 I wanna say that guy from Parliamentaty Funk. George Clinton, I think?

No and No.

Think Pub Rock and Reggae respectively

Huh. Well, I kinda suck at this sort of thing. I'm the music guy, not the image guy; you play me five notes and I'll tell you the song, but this... well, I'll give a shot for a few.

#4 is Dave Edmunds, can't really mistake him.
#7 - I *know* I should know who these people are. I swear, they looke so damn familiar, but I have no idea. I think I might've made out with the girl at Cantors back in '86.
#10 is either Sun Ra or Lee Scratch Perry (I'm guessing Perry from the Reggae hint above;)
#13, I wanna say The Breeders, though I know that can't be right.
#15 is Fishbone, easy enough.

Huh, well I suppose that was easy enough. We'll see how close I came...

See, I knew you would get #10.
You easily got #4 and #15, and I doubt you even needed the Pub Rock hint on Edmunds.

Really? You made out with Kim Gordon?

Hahaha, I wish :)

At least that clears up who the picture is :)

13 has gotta be the Dance Hall Crashers.

Oh man, I would never have guessed #14 - as many years as I've listened to him, I've never actually seen a picture of the man. Good one!

You never looked at the painting of the live CD?
How'd you figure it out?

Let's just say you should move pics for something like this to an image server and change the file names...
