Is this the name of a M*A*S*H character or 1970s rock and roll star?

Were these people acquaintances of Hawkeye or Hawkwind?

M*A*S*H took place during the Korean War, a conflict that ended in July 1953. Weeks earlier, a song by Bill Haley & His Comets called "Crazy Man, Crazy" peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Juke Box chart. It is widely considered to be the first rock & roll song to make the charts.

While there may little crossover between the real war and rock music, the M*A*S*H television show dominated ratings in the 1970s, a decade also considered to be the peak of stadium-filling rock bands. 

That got us thinking — can you tell the difference between a M*A*S*H characters and Seventies rocker? Look at the names below and take a guess!

You got 17 out of 17 - You rock! Way to strum through that with easy. Nice work! Piece of cake!! Think I will sign off now after a perfect score. ;). On a side note. Has it ever been documented that Col. Flagg's first name is Sam? I know in the epsiode "A Smattering of Intelligence" Trapper's spy friend says to him "Buy you a cup of coffee Sam?" But I always took this as him using a generic name to refer to Flagg. Like someone would say "Buy me a drink, Joe." Or Eddie Haskell calling Wally or Lumpy every name but their real names. He would often call them Clyde, Sam, or even Gertrude!! Just my opinion. Any thoughts?

Where is round two?

This was so easy.

For those that do not know Cherie Currie was one of the lead singers in The Runaways with Joan Jett and Lita Ford. Cherie is the Bleached Blonde

15 out of 17 - shame on me! I should have done better. I loved M*A*S*H* but I was a teenager in the
sixties, was working full time when M*A*S*H* began and didn't start watching it until the later 70's. Seen lots of reruns though!
