Thanks for the pretty pink cake, Meryl!

Chrissie, is my ignorance showing?  Should I know who those two dudes are?  I'm 47, honeybun, my rock-star days are O-V-E-R, haha.  Fill me in please.

Chrissie, is my ignorance showing?  Should I know who those two dudes are?  I'm 47, honeybun, my rock-star days are O-V-E-R, haha.  Fill me in please.

According to the "properties" of the pic, one of the guys is Jeff Beck.

From Wikipedia:

Geoffrey Arnold "Jeff" Beck (born 24 June 1944) is an English rock guitarist.  He is one of the three noted guitarists to have played with The Yardbirds (the other two being Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page).  Beck also formed The Jeff Beck Group and Beck, Bogert & Appice.
 
Much of Beck's recorded output has been instrumental, with a focus on innovative sound, and his releases have spanned genres ranging from blues-rock, heavy metal, jazz fusion and an additional blend of guitar-rock and electronica.  Although he recorded two hit albums (in 1975 and 1976) as a solo act, Beck has not established or maintained the sustained commercial success of many of his contemporaries and bandmates.  Beck appears on albums by Mick Jagger, Tina Turner, Jon Bon Jovi, Malcom McLaren, Kate Bush, Roger Waters, Donovan, Stevie Wonder, Les Paul, Zucchero, Cyndi Lauper, Brian May, Stanley Clarke and ZZ Top.
 
He was ranked 5th in Rolling Stone's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and the magazine has described him as "one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock".  MSNBC has called him a "guitarist's guitarist".  Beck has earned wide critical praise and received the Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance six times and Best Pop Instrumental Performance once.  He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice: as a member of the Yardbirds (1992) and as a solo artist (2009).


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

The other guy is Mandy Meyer, who was part of the British band ASIA for a while, among other things. In his case, Mandy comes from Armand. I didn't know him either, just found the pic by googling, like I said.

No wonder I didn't recognize, but that is too funny just the same.  I *did* love Asia back in the day, and still listen to their album (yes, I said album) from time to time.  There weren't a lot of photos of the band published at the time, though.  Didn't know and didn't care what they looked like, just enjoyed their tunes.  Thanks for the clarification, Chuck and Chrissie (and Wiki).
