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!

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!

10 of 14. I got all the 50's bands but I guess I didn't pay much attention to The Mayberry bands and band members.

13 out of 14. Thought I knew my '50s musicians. Evidently, Keely Hazleton is someone I didn't know.

14/14 Although I will admit that a couple were lucky guesses. Maybe I'll buy a lottery ticket today.

Remember Keevy Hazelton singing My Home Town, a song written by Aunt Bea and Clara Edwards.

I loved watching Bee & Clara self-destruct when Keevy did a rock version of their song.

To me, episodes like that one are examples of the show going off the rails. I think it fails at believability and comic effect.

Though there are cringe worthy episodes, this is a far cry from the better episodes during the black and white years. To me, there are approximately thirty excellent episodes (examples: "Goober and the Art of Love", "Convicts at Large", "Dogs, Dogs, Dogs," etc.)
