    Shockzilla's Trivia Question - Music edition

    OK boys and girls, time for another trivia question. Today's question is going to be about - you guessed it! - my favorite band, DEVO!!!

    OK, here's the question: Released in July of 1978, DEVO's album "Q:Are We Not Men? A: We Are DEVO!" featured on the cover a famous man in a hat. Can you name the famous person? I have placed a picture of what the album cover looked like below.

    I thought it was Chi-Chi, but looked it up to make sure and found this:

    In the US, the cover was originally set to be an image of golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez from the packaging of a golf club cover. The President of Warner Brothers, however, was an avid golf fan, and felt the cover was mocking Rodriguez. He proposed an alternate cover with a similar design, omitting the band Chi Chi's hat, and changing the eyes. When the band rejected this, he suggested that a composite image be used. Meanwhile, Chi Chi had signed off the rights to the image to Devo, in exchange for a couple records. However, word did not reach Warner Brothers, and the image used on the album was not Chi Chi Rodriguez. Fortunately, the real Chi Chi was not upset, and sent the band several autographed pictures.

    I'm not sure who it is, but doesn't it look a little like Tom Brady?

    Well, you BOTH are correct - it was supposed to be a likeness of Chi Chi, but as RyanMurphy noted, it technically was NOT him.

    Yeah...after I posted, I found the EXACT same site as ryan did...I would classify it as a CARACATURE of Chi Chi, since his picture did inspire the album cover!

    Honestly, I thought it was Chi-Chi, but I wanted to make sure I had all of my ducks in a row before running my mouth about anything DEVO to Shock...
