Just because we haven't had one in yonks - and it will be a little while yet before Sister comes round with our wakey-wakey pills, here are 20 more "before they had pubes" pictures to contemplate and see if you can guess what they turned into before they were inflicted on us (with musical clues of course) ...




Picture 1


Clue for 1.

   
   
   

Another clue for 1.

   
   
   

Congrats Vizzer - "Volcano Girls" and "Is she mad?" were the clues for Iceland's own Björk Guðmundsdóttir who, I have heard on good authority, can actually sing too.


Picture 2


Clue for 2.

   
   
   

Another clue for 2.

   
   
   

Quite right, ferval. This Captain Eddie is now under posthumous investigation by no less than three separate police authorities over allegations of sexual abuse against boys and young men dating back to the 1950s. The Right Honourable Sir Edward Heath KG MBE.


Picture 3


Clue for 3.

   
   
   

Well deduced, Trike. The ultimate ego tripper - with the gall to name an entire country after himself - has to have been master Cecil Rhodes, seen here at age 7 already fully armed with gun and dining room chair and - in the spirit of "practice makes perfect" - ready to claim the local village green as his personal fiefdom.


Picture 4


Clue for 4.

   
   
   

Another clue for 4.

   
   
   



Picture 5


Clue for 5.

   
   
   

Yes indeed, ferval. This little tomboy Rebecca would grow up to be the sassy, classy, brassy and (in no particular order)  singer-songwriter, actress, author, businesswoman and humanitarian, Dolly R. Parton.


Picture 6


Clue for 6.

   
   
   

Well spotted, Meles meles. The Beatles "I'll Be Back" preceded Arnold Schwarzenegger's much imitated catchphrase by 21 years.


Picture 7


Clue for 7.

   
   
   

Well done, meles meles. Gaga's paean to expression of self through hairstyle has been taken to a political extreme by the current Republican frontrunner for presidency, Donald Trump.


Picture 8


Clue for 8.

   
   
   

Another clue for 8.

   
   
   



Picture 9


Clue for 9.

   
   
   

Good one, Trike. A man whose piano was often noticed to have been drinking back in his early career, the one and only Reginald Kenneth Dwight Esquire now elevated to Sir Elton Hercules John CBE (thanks mainly to an awful parody he made of one of his own oldies - Gone With The Candle, or something like that)


Picture 10


Clue for 10.

   
   
   

The "Happy Hawaiian" himself (thanks ABBA), Barack Obama. Well done Ferval


Picture 11


Clue for 11.

   
   
   

Another clue for 11.

   
   
   



Picture 12


Clue for 12.

   
   
   

Yes, Ferval. And if young Nigel says he's happy he must be Farage.


Picture 13


Clue for 13.

   
   
   

Another clue for 13.

   
   
   

Maybe the hardest one of all, correct Vizzer! Franz Kafka, credited with being the first great describer of what was to come in the 20th century.


Picture 14


Clue for 14.

   
   
   

Well done, Trike. The "independent lady" and Scottish First Minister who recently announced that Scotland will go down the independence referendum road again unless young Cameron takes his dick out of a pig  - Nicola Sturgeon.


Picture 15


Clue for 15.

   
   
   

Well done, ferval. The Stone Town, Zanzibar crooner himself, the late and much missed Freddie Mercury (aka Farrokh Bulsara)


Picture 16


Clue for 16.

   
   
   

Another clue for 16.

   
   
   



Picture 17


Clue for 17.

   
   
   

Yes Priscilla, that loveable old late sectarian bigot, Baron Bannside himself, the very reverend (sic) Ian Kyle Paisley.

Picture 18


Clue for 18.

   
   
   

Indeed, ferval. Once Pink Floyd had ordered him to "Tear Down The Wall" young Mikhail Gorbachev could do nowt but give in. His famous hammer and sickle birthmark was as yet cunningly concealed beneath a Stalinist crew cut when this daguerreotype was taken in 1937.


Picture 19


Clue for 19.

   
   
   

Yes, Trike. The funky Chinaman from funky Chinatown (well, Hong Kong), Jackie Chan


Picture 20


Clue for 20.

   
   
   

Well spotted ferval, the only jailhouse rocker worth his salt ration - Johnny Cash

And - oh dear am having a gender prob, nice smile seems like Robin Williams to .... does Ms Sturgeon have a nice smile? And thank you for doing a new quiz,  Mr Nordmann, sir. It's raining here and my screen glasses are out in it, somewhere in the raspberry patch. Oh the trials of life never end.

Surely 12 isn't the Farage balloon even if there is a strong resemblance? That would too obvious.

Gandhi ain't any of these people (I assumed also you meant another picture than number 6?). Otherwise, 7 down with 13 to go, folks!

no 15: young Farrokh clearly started young when it came to a bit of sartorial extravagance. It's Freddie.

Yes, I meant 13 - glasses still out in garden somewhere..... mind also missing. How about16 for Angela Merkle. That little girl went places, I suspect. Imagine that one sat in front of you in class.

Number 3, the picture looks Victorian and with the music clue, I'll try Chaim Weizmann.

I did think that the scary child, number 6 .... one of the 'Midwich Cuckoos' surely ... was possibly Boris Johnson ... but now I'm not so sure.

So, athough I'm far from convinced that I've even got the sex right,  ... I'm gonna plump for number 16 as Boris Johnson, neh?

Neither Boris nor Chaim are they, no.

And so are we 10 down with 10 to go ...

Number 3, for a second attempt. Going by the lyrics, the only Victorian who had a country named after him was Cecil Rhodes.

One can over-think these so it's finally dawned. No. 5 is the woman who is neither dumb nor blonde, Ms Parton.

Don't know about anyone else, but I'm really struggling with these ones.

Number 2, "Ride Captain Ride in your Mystery Ship" by Blue Image, fairly sure it isn't Neil Armstrong, could it be John Glenn or Alan Shepherd?

If you can think of the filthiest connotations you dare for that song title, Trike, it may help a bit. I've added another clue now too.

P, not the pope, no.

And what about the poor unidentified waifs stranded on this thread then? I am still trying to identify them .......It ought not to be allowed!....... to quote Mr Grouser of Larry the Lamb infamy. More clues, anagrams? answers, even!

So now only three Yanks, a Brit and an Austro-Hungarian to go.

Number 13, I take it is the Austro-Hungarian, "20th century man", so I'll try Nikola Tesla.

Maybe Sigmund Freud

Of course "Austro-Hungarian" need not imply a person from either Austria or Hungary necessarily. This little waif did however grow up ein Deutsch-Sprecher.

Of the five remaining we have three involved in the performing arts and two who would have been more adept with those soon to be extinct appendages to civilisation which have humbly served humanity so well and so profoundly, pen and ink.
