Meatloaf was an actor in the first two and sang on the third .

'Hair' - The Cowsills had the hit version of the song but you probably want the musical .
'Rocky Horror Picture Show' - Musical / movie
'Free for All' - Ted Nugent
If I claim to be a wise man , it surely means that I don't know .

You got it. Meatloaf was in the LA stage production of Hair, played Eddie in the stage and film version of 'The Rocky Horror Show' and sang several songs on Nugent's 'Free for All' album when vocalist Dereck St. Holmes (I thought he sang for Tap :lol: ) quit the band.

Your turn Diceman.

I have the answer, but no new one, so I'll keep quiet for the moment.
I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

O.k., Diceman, if Greybeard isn't going to tell us the answer, I need help. :?

Is the connection related to movies?

That's a difficult one! (I'll come back in a couple of weeks to take part again, I'm swamped with assignment work and children :) )

OK, I'll tell you:
The answer is Glen Campbell.

Campbell was a session musician for, and toured with the Beach Boys, as a temporary replacement for one Brian Wilson
John Wayne picked him to appear in the film True Grit
He dated Tanya Tucker for a while


This should be really easy (assuming that I found the right connection)

Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet
Siobhan Fahey from Bananarama
Francis Rossi from Status Quo

Although they are all on top now , they all started on the bottom .

I was lookimg into previous occupations since Sting and Sheryl Crow worked as teachers, but Bryan Adams dropped out of school, so that's not it.

Need a little more help Diceman.
