Gas prices make the 350-mile round-trip from Charlotte to Myrtle Beach no small expense, but how's this for an incentive: a family four-pack of tickets to check out Hard Rock Park, which opened this spring with 55 acres of rides, shows, eateries and shops that are fun for the entire family.
We'll be giving away a family four-pack to the park every Friday between now and Aug. 1. Here's how: Each week, we'll pose a series of trivia questions related to bands that have rides named for them at the park. Answer them all correctly, and we'll enter you into the drawing for the prize.
Today, we're focusing on the Eagles. Good luck!
1. Who were the four original band members?
2. What year were the Eagles inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
3. In the song “Life in the Fast Lane,” who says, “He's coming but you gotta pay him cash”?
Send answers in an e-mail to wintickets@charlotte observer .com; subject line must read “Hard Rock Park.” Include your name and a daytime number. The deadline is 9 a.m. Monday. Answers will be published in this space next Friday, July 25.
(Answers to last week's questions: 1. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, John Bonham are the four original band members. 2. The nickname of the private jetliner that Led Zeppelin traveled in was the Starship. 3. Robert Plant recorded the vocals for “Whole Lotta Love” in one take. Congratulations to our winner, Courtney Walters!)
