No.... more like Susie or something like that. :shock:
:lol: Or Regina perhaps :)
Yes that suits him down to the ground... Queen Regina.

There were 70-odd bands on that picture :shock:
well it was only a hint/clue not the answer. :wink:
That's a toughie. I don't want to just guess. Brady Bunch thing makes me think of Pearl Jam for some reason but that was not in the picture. It must be an 80s or 90s band because of Brady Bunch. I will have to work on this one a little more unless someone can come up with the answer right now.
