Hi all,

Here's another fun game we can all play.  The gist of this game is to come up with a cryptic alternative name for a well-known band or musician, and that participants guess to which artist you are referring.  The clue can incorporate other words to describe the artist's name, or can point towards certain aspects of the band, including their musical style or group member's names.

One example could be:
Clue: Feuding British brothers find water in the desert.
Answer: Oasis

The first person to reply correctly to the previous poster's clue must then provide their own clue for the next person to guess.

Get it?  Good!  

And now for the first real clue:

Page planted in metallic airship

SA & CC,
Just to clarify here, we are playing band/artist names only, and not song titles.

Miss M,
Yours is a band name clue, correct?

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 3, 2012, 3:21:12 PM PDT
Yes ! :)

It is a slang term with more than one meaning so here's another clue:

MissM,

Is there a band called Vagabond Train?

If I'm wrong, would anyone else care to hazard a guess?

Vagabond train ? Not that I know of!

Here's another clue:

Andy Griffith in No Time For Sergeants was one of these Basic Trainees ...often assigned to menial and unpleasant tasks.

It could also be a prison inmate.

re: Jimi's bassist's place of rest

Noel Redding was cremated, wasn't he? Well, there is a band called Ash.
Am I correct?
If not, another clue please...
