During Tuesday night's video call, I had a blast running a trivia game for Erik, Kelly, and Steve. My favorite category involved rebuses: I showed a series of pictures that spelled out the name of an artist from rock music or pop music, and the players guessed the name.

I've decided to recreate this online so that everyone on the site has a chance to play. I'll present all 17 rebuses from the live game, along with several new rebuses so that Erik, Kelly, and Steve get some new content to play.

Here's the plan:
• I'll post a rebus here in this discussion.
• If you think you know the answer, please do not reply with your guess. Instead, send it to me in a private message.
• I will not respond to each guess, sorry, but you can re-guess if you think you had it wrong.
• I will wait at least 24 hours for everyone to have a chance to play. (Please be patient as my schedule can be full some days.)
• After that, I will post the answer, along with a list of who guessed right.
• I'll repeat these steps for the next rebus.

Have fun!

That was amazingly fun! You guys should have been there. The other games were also a blast. I'm working on a picture game now that's different. I'll keep you posted.

The last rebus was Eric Clapton. Russ, Denise, and Matthew all solved it.

This fifth rebus introduces word balloons. When you see one, it refers to the sound being made by that person.
