Monkey & Canary
Open floor if correct
Monkey (species unstated at least AFAIK) and canary (green -- avian opera singer), indeed correct. It would seem that I'm the only RailUKForums General Knowledge Quiz-doer, who as a kid enjoyed the Dr. Dolittle books...? My bringing in Chee-Chee the monkey was maybe a bit unfair: he appeared only in the later books, and I remember hardly anything about him -- I was just looking for characters a bit more obscure, than the Doctor's main from-the-outset animal family.
Open floor, as per...
I have a question:
Apart from both being rock bands what links ZZ Top and The Zombies?
the letter "Z"?
Long beards as worn by the members of both bands?
Wow! I never noticed that.
The Zombies were pretty clean-cut lads.
Ah, sorry; did they have the same manager and / or the same record company?
No, it's more surprising and interesting than that - at least I thought so but I have low standards.
They've both recorded different songs by the same writer(s)?
Not that I'm aware of.
This was the 'fake' Zombies in the US which had members of what became ZZ Top in it. Colin Blunstone was on Jonny Walkers 70's show the other month talking about it.
That's correct, at the height of The Zombies success two fake "The Zombies" toured the USA. Dusty Hill and Frank Beard of ZZ Top were members of one of those groups.
