    I have recently found two boxes of old newspaper clippings from music magazines so I thought it might be fun to turn this into a new game , also inspired by this hilarious and highly entertaining thread :
    Identify the prog keysman

    Most of these clippings come from NME or Melody Maker so there will be a slight UK bias in the selction of artists - for the first round I just randomly picked 9 clippings - some are quite easy , others rather difficult - let's see how it goes...

    #3 and #9 are missing
    #3 shouldn't be too hard , British rock star of the 60's and 70's , played in two major bands (this is the 2nd), sadly missed
    #9 is by far the most difficult here , Northern Irish band , late 80's/90's , lead singer carried on solo until his untimely death a few years ago, brother of another singer who appears on a few Van Morrison albums
