RossChris: Thanks for all the comments, folks. Every one much appreciated.
Dusty Hill isn't the former bass player in ZZ Top; he still is! They have been going since 1970 without any personnel changes, though admittedly there is only three in the band; and they are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Hare was the one I was concerned about as I thought he may be less well known that Hill; shows what I know!! (10 months, 1 week ago)

Anna Rexic: Good grid. Having Dusty Springfield and preacher men in the same grid is appropriate. (10 months, 1 week ago)
Mister Tom: I panicked doing this, as I could immediately spot two groups which turned out to be there.
However, having got the groups out and pressed for the explanations, it turns out that one of the connections involved the former bass player from ZZ top. It is you, after all... (10 months, 1 week ago)
