OK, I too will have to say all "a", since I'm really wanting something for spending my time on this, but with an asterisk to question #3.

 

It is a little known fact, but Gunga Din, the 1939 movie, had a huge impact worldwide!!  How could it not with Cary Grant and Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., not to mention the guy who played Gunga Din, Sam Jaffee.  OK, I said I wouldn't mention him, but I had to.  According to Wikipedia, "in 1999, Gunga Din was deemed "culturally significant" by the United States Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry."  Culturally significant.  So to all those who have slighted this great movie, now you know.

Number 10 doesn't have a correct answer listed. The Beatles founded Apple Records. The first non Beatles artist siged was James Taylor. Nice album, I used to have two originals (vinyl), but passed them on to friends.

Number 6 does not have a correct answer. None of the three choices are listed in the Sgt. Pepper cover legend.Number 3 has no correct answer Ravi Shankar taught George to play sitar. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was their spiritual advisor and influenced them.

In a drawing overseen by those fine folks as Price Waterhouse.  All names  of those giving correct answers were written on slips of paper, folded and placed in a bowl, and d three names were draw by a comely model.

 

And the winners are:

 

Number 1: Ceptorman!

 

He wins the Klipsch Jacket

 

Number 2: Billybob!

 

He wins a Klipsch coaster

 

Number 3.  Haydukej!

 

He wins a Klipsch tie-tac.

 

Congratulations winner and kudos to all those who participated.

 

Some points of clarification.  Number 1 was a trick question. There are no singers in The Beatles.  Question number six was a bit tricky but most casual Beatles fans would have said Ravi Shankar. Certainly he made a ton of dough touring on behind the fame he received from his work with The Beatles.  Finally, yes the very first concert given by the Beatles in the USA wasi n the Nation's Capital. The venue they performed in no longer exists.
