An idea for another game came to me just now.
Howsabout we take turns naming bands and people that have been playing in them. One person names a musician, the second must name a band that musician has been playing in, the third names another musician that played in that band, the fourth must come up with another band the last named musician was in, etc.
Metal-archives.com is your best bet for tracking bands and their lineups (though I'm sure everybody here knows that site already). In the process, I hope we can not only learn of some interesting bands and players, but also check the "six handshakes" theory WRT the music world.
One request: please no dead ends. If you name the person that is known to only have played in one band, the game is over, and we'd want to avoid that, innit? EXAMPLE:
1: Ritchie Blackmore <-- musician
2: Deep Purple <-- band #1 played in
3: Glenn Hughes <-- played in band #2
4: Black Sabbath <-- band #3 played in
So I start off with...
