I am still amazed that "square as a bear, with a part in the middle of his hair" Buddy Holly ever was considered rock & roll. His effeminate hiccup-y voice, coke bottle glasses and timid music didn't make MY socks roll up and down! Just my humble opinion.

Might have been The Lovin' Spoonful? John Sebastian (long hair/glasses) and Zal Yanovsky (guitar, wore hats, and goofed off). 15 out of 15 on quiz. :)

I can’t go by the date you give, but the whacky acting, top hat wearing, guitar playing, singer, had to be John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas. Oh, and at 61 yo. I got all the answers right. I seen em all.
