Carried forward from previous page...

,Musicians/singers again.
1. Spanish heavyweight in the gents? – ..........................................ELTON JOHN
2. Candid wrongdoing at artist HQ – ................................................FRANK SINATRA
3. Anger and Spanish account – ........................................................BILLY FURY
4. “Right!” he said, with 2 colleagues
5. Summerbee politely puts team-mate first when offered a top up
6. Bit of old gay rhyming slang for Paul Hollywood? –.........................GINGER BAKER
7. Rambling Jock – ..............................................................................SCOTT WALKER
8. Ivan comes up short in Wales
9. Insect comes out for Cliff’s alias – .....................................................DEBBIE HARRY
10. Secluded hollow -

Think Ken may be the best bet to get number 5 - no pressure mate! Hahaha

Don't hold your breath Bern. Summerbee and top up led me to Mike & the Mechanics, as Shelagh said, Mike Rutherford so I'm struggling. :oops: K

No Ken. For number 8, thinking about the slang used in Auf Weidhershein Pet may help???

No 4. Can't help wondering why he said "Right"
He has two colleagues..would they form a trio of sorts?

No 8. Never got to see programme A.P. so Ivan will just have to wait :)

No 10. Secluded hollow.."SADE" sounds rather hollow and shady :?

#5 WILL YOUNG.......will you (have a top up) +Neil Young (teammate)

and Bern, to save me (and poss others) wasting even more time will you just confirm or deny that #4 has anything to do with Fred (Right Said Fred) PLEASE :(

Great stuff Bee..ditto with Neil Young (had a little help from Jim :? )

Can't think of anything else for "Right" he said, with two colleagues. Fred's brother Richard, perhaps? will definitely need a clue!!


No 8. Not sure, but will have a guess at MANTOVANI..(Manta-Ray shorts welsh factory)
Vani Ivan..(at least a Welsh connection :lol: )

None of those recent guesses are right folks.

Fred is most definitely involved in number 4 - who are the other men though? :wink:

Good grief..Bernie..can't believe Will Young was not the answer :roll:

Real brain teaser this one..take it, team-mate Neil Young also out of the equation!!

Still wondering who the hell Ivan could be :?

Last couple of guesses for these conundrums :)

No 8. Ivan comes up short in Wales, possibly Ivor Novello...(probably not)

No 10. Heidi Range..Heidi, suggested name from Bee, and hollow from cooking range :?

No more names left Bernie, think I've used the lot :lol:

Top marks for persistence Shelagh. Ivor Novello occurred to me but not Bernie's scene. K

Manfred Mann is right for number 4 - others are wrong though.

Keep working on the Colin Bell thing though! :wink:

Just these two left now folks l
]8. Ivan comes up short in Wales –

10. Secluded hollow


Random thoughts on
8 were BARRY (in Wales) and MANILOW (IvAN's a man and if he comes up short he's a low man) :roll:
and
10. Secluded ; LONE/ HYDE/ HERMIT...... Hollow could be CAVE/ DALE/ VALE/ VALLEY/ MT

I'm getting nowhere but will continue to cogitate .....

Thank goodness for that :) not sorry to see the back of Ivan!
