    A recent quiz in the local rag had this question:

    There was a reasonably well-known rock group called Delaney & Bonnie. Which of the following is not true of them: (a) They played briefly in the Plastic Ono band with John Lennon, (b) they toured with Eric Clapton, (c) Bonnie once punched Elvis Costello in a Columbus, Ohio, bar, (d) Delaney wrote the theme song for "The Mary Tyler Moore show," (e) Bonnie changed her last name from Bramlett to Sheridan and had a recurring acting role on the TV program "Roseanne," (f) Delaney started a rehab facility called Rock and Roll Ranch and got sober there himself, in the process becoming a born-again Christian, (g) they reunited to sing at rallies for John McCain.

      (c) is incorrect. It was Chrissy Hynde who punched Elvis.
