So Keith Richards finally dies and goes to Heaven. Saint Peter is showing him around, and Keith is peppering him with questions. “Is that Jimi Hendrix?” Yes, St. Peter tells him. “Whoa, is that Jerry Garcia?” Yes, St. Peter patiently tells him. Then Keith says the unthinkable: “Hold on…is that Bono?”
St. Peter quickly covers Keith’s mouth. “Shhhhhh!” he says. “That’s God. He just likes to think he’s Bono.”
Below are magnified fragments of 25 album covers. Most of them are well-known albums, but there are a few obscure covers (or lesser-known albums from well-known artists) mixed in to keep you honest. You must guess both the artist and album cover. In order to keep things simple, live albums, soundtracks and singles compilations will not be used, and with all apologies to our European and Japanese friends, we are going with the covers that appeared in the US record storesâ€¦back when we had record stores. Sigh.
The rules are the same as Name That Tune. Each player can make three guesses between updates (â€œUpdateâ€ is defined as â€œThe time when I post a comment listing all of the covers that have been guessed correctlyâ€), so everyone will have a chance to contribute. And, just to spice things up, we have a puzzle cover this week, yay! One guess per player of the puzzle between updates, please.
Also, there is an acrostic this week. The FIRST letter to each band or artist’s name will spell out a clue as to the puzzle cover’s identity, so there are two parts to the puzzle. One is the acrostic, and the other is the identity of the puzzle cover. Good luck!
Lastly, the Puzzle Cover
I suggest subscribing to the comments on the post (click on â€œTrack Commentsâ€) to more easily follow the progress of the game. Remember, maximum of three guesses between updates of the list. Have fun!
