Was this a Happy Days character… or singer with a No. 1 hit in the 1950s?

Were they friends with Fonzie… or atop the Billboard charts?

Happy Days captured — and helped stoke — nostalgia for Fifties. The car fins, the sock hops, the hot rods, the greasers, the jukeboxes. Of course, the sitcom aired in the 1970s. You can probably tell by the feathered haircuts that start to appear on actors.

Think you can spot the difference between the fictional Fifties and the real thing?

Some of these names are characters on Happy Days. The others all had No. 1 songs on the Billboard charts in the 1950s.

Almost missed Roger Williams--although I got the question about Flip (if his last name is Phillips, then his brother Roger's last name is Phillips). Then my brain insisted for a few minutes that Mr. Williams actually performed in the seventies...except that was Roger Whittaker (I can't be the only one who remembers The Last Farewell)!

15/15. They stuck to artists with big 50's hits, so it was easier.

Flip Phillips was a famous sax player, so I put him down as a pop star, as many sax tunes were popular in the 50s.
