Edit - am I the only one that knew the T-Bird was Kim Gordon?

Got 14. Wasn't sure about the double bass player.

Full house with one guess (the T'bird bassist).

I couldn't even name most bassists by the face. 

I got 60% but I've never even heard of most of them, and a lot were guessed based on other things than the instrument. 

The double denim had to be Cliff Burton, and I'm pretty sure the gentleman of Afro Caribbean heritage isn't Sting.

Ditto! Knew it was a Kim but guessed wrong.

It's ok, nothing amazing, though some interesting nuggets if you're into SY

More like guess the bassist by the widely used stock photo or their clothes. I got 14. If just the pics of the bass were included and the bodies had been brushed out I'd have got Bootsy and that's about it.

I'd probably have got Bootsy and Lemmy.

14. Turns out Kim Gordon and Kim Deal are different people

when Kim Deal didn't join the Pixies reunion they got a new bass player, also called Kim, who was not even Kim Gordon.

It was Kim Shattuck of the Muffs... although she had to switch from guitar.

According to Frank Black, the Pixies had to let Kim S go in the end.... "She is an extrovert and we are all introverts"

Kim Shattuck sadly departed a year or so ago... RIP.
