Trivia: Band Names
Congratulations to Robert Ragno and Janet Marques who both knew that the new wave band Duran Duran took their name from the villian Durand-Durand, played by Milo O'Shea, in the movie Barbarella. Robert and Janet each win a pair of tickets and a large popcorn, both provided by LSC.
The reggae group UB40 takes its name from the serial number of a form which must submitted to obtain public welfare assistance in Britain. The name of the Rolling Stones predates both the magazine and the Bob Dylan song "Like a Rolling Stone." It actually comes from a song by bluesman Muddy Waters.
