Sorry, your use of the word "rocker" confused me. I was trying to think of rockers.

But something more interesting was on pg 7, the fellow 2nd from the right is the whitest black guy that I've ever seen.

That should've been "rocked".

Velveteen patchwork. It's not for me!

RobK, that's Augustus Hawkins. According to Wikipedia, "Hawkins was very fair-skinned and resembled his English grandfather. Throughout his life, he was often taken to be a person of solely white ancestry, but he refused to pass as white."

I guessed Barry Manilow, 'cause it looks like his style.

I thought, especially considering the date, that it was probably Doc Severinsen on a day he didn't want to be too flashy.

I guessed Neil Sedaka or Paul Anka. Lose again.
