The Last Time I watched ` Mastermind ` Magnus Magnusson was presenting it !!!
So I look forward to Tuning in for this.
I wonder if the contestant will `Passover` any questions !!!

Didn't Simon Topping of ACR also sing with JD along with Alan Hempsall of CA at the Bury gig?

no, Because crispy ambulance was specifically mentioned in the question.

He came second - not bad considering all the pressure!

Great to see our favourite band featured. I didn't know how obscure the questions would be but they were pretty straightforward overall. I scored the same as the contestant. Couldn't remember the name of the Crispy Ambulance guy, the city where the Closer cover came from, or the name of the type of special cover for Still. To me they seemed the hardest 3 questions anyway.

Damn I look handsome with makeup on

Sorry, I got some easy ones wrong, I think they call that pressure.

I'd probably tried to stuff too much in, lyrics, names of biographers/photographers, 1st/last songs played on key dates, even the inscriptions on the vinyl on the various releases!!


And then to mishear a question and fail to answer 'Martin Hannett'???  Aaaaarrrgghhh

Top marks for braving the cameras-and even braver for coming on here to talk about it LOL!

People egged me and I thought about it for years to go on - what turned me off was that on the entry form you needed to have four specialist subjects - I presumed they all had to be completely different - ie you just couldn't pick four bands

I could have done two-and maybe a third at a push - but couldn't think of a fourth

What were the other specialist subjects you entered on your form?

Ever since Sean Wallace won with 3 specialist subjects that were all Football related, they have changed the rules.

Now the criteria are:
- you need 4 (heat/semi/final/spare)
- they must all be different
- they must all have respected works written about them
- they must fit the 'intellectual ethos' of Mastermind
- they must not have been chosen by anyone else in the last 3 years

My initial choices were:
Joy Division
Jackie Stewart
The Group B Rallying Era - rejected - not allowed 2 on motorsport
Blackadder - rejected - done by someone else too recently

So I came up with a few more - The Cure (not allowed due to Joy Division), Flags (done too recently), various cricket ones (too many other people picking the subject), Tudor history (done too recently)... etc etc.  We never really agreed what my topic would be had I somehow made the final!

Yellow card that man! 

I admit I hesitated a moment over the "Closer" cover cemetery photo location but otherwise got them all straightaway on the trot.  Can I write to the BBC and request an American version of "Mastermind" so I can sign up?

Wow, JonnyP, well done, you! I watched that Mastermind episode. Well done for answering most of the questions right - it must be so hard sitting there answering questions like that under so much pressure! And I think you're very good telling us all it was you on that chair.

You've done us all proud, well done!
