Was this a Fifties rock 'n' roller or a musician in Mayberry?

It takes a true Andy Griffith Show expert or rockabilly royalty to ace this one!

 CBS Television Distribution/The Everett Collection

The Andy Griffith Show was about as musical as a sitcom can get without going full-blown Broadway. Sheriff Andy loved to pluck his guitar. Opie jammed in a band. Bluegrass pickers came down from the hills. Farmers had the voices of angels. Even Barney was in the choir (though his talent was questionable).

Fictional rock 'n' roll stars even passed through Mayberry.

Which got us thinking — can you tell the difference between a character from The Andy Griffith Show and a real-life rocker from the 1950s?

Try to sniff out the early rock stars and the TV folk!

8 out of 14. I don't watch the Andy Griffith Show, and I've never heard of any of the singers. All guesses.

7 out of 14. Then again, I've never really watched The Andy Griffith Show and was guessing the whole way.

I took this same quiz about four years ago and STILL missed the same one! (I didn't post my answer then, but it's 13/14 both times.)
