Here you go, a pop quiz. All three of the songs below are of the "nuggets" variety, meaning loosely under the garage band banner. They're not quite the snotty fuzz drenched parent-scaring type, but then a whole bunch of what's considered nuggets or garage are really just bands lacking the budgets or marketing push to become pop stars. Make no mistake, most garage bands didn't choose semi-obscurity.
So here's the deal, the three bands below all contain at least one member who went on to become a rock star. Some of you will know right away, others may not even recognize the names of the musicians. I'm already thinking about which of you regulars will have the answers. I'm sure of at least two. To keep things fair, no research, no Wikipedia or web searches. It's the honor system, as analog as it gets. I'm really curious how many will know the answers off the top of their head. One clue: The future rock stars are all worthy of web crawl. If no one comes up with the answers in the comments, I'll post them in a few days.
