We love to stump “Mr. Encyclopedia of Rock” Bob Stroud with classic rock trivia!

What comedian played drums in a band with the members of Steely Dan while they were in college? When Jimmy Hendrix moved to England what musician did he live with? Who played the character of Tommy in The Who’s rock opera “Tommy?”

But now we need YOUR help. Submit a classic rock trivia question below that you think will “Stump Stroud!” If Bob answers your question incorrectly, you’ll win a  Drive T-shirt!

BobStroud-bio150An acknowledged music junkie, Stroud’s non-radio musical past includes playing his grandmother’s Perry Como 78’s on her Victrola in 1957; buying his first four 45’s in 1962; getting his first transistor radio in 1963; buying “Meet the Beatles” in 1964; and fronting an 11-piece rock and R&B band called Rockestra from 1990 – 2000. In late 2003 Bob was contacted by Cryan’ Shames percussionist, Jim Pilster, aka, J.C. Hooke, and invited to become the new lead singer of this legendary Chicago band. When Bob bought his first Cryan’ Shames record at 15, he never dreamed he’d join the band at 51.

His understated presentation combined with WDRV’s focus on the music has resulted in WDRV being a top ranked station during midday’s since the day WDRV launched. In fact, it was Bob’s voice that introduced Chicagoan’s to 97.1 FM The Drive on April 2nd, 2001, the day it launched.

In 1980, Stroud created the popular Rock & Roll Roots show. “Roots”, as it is commonly referred to, spotlights different artists and groups from 1964 to the early 70’s, and has become a radio staple for classic rock fans. It airs on WDRV-FM every Sunday from 9a-Noon and 9p-Midnight.
