Someone yelled at Matt and he's sulking. We want him back.

Here's a hint: He was a leader in the bop movement, and he got his nickname when the car he was riding in ran over an animal on the way to a gig. (That practically spells it out for you all).

And you spelled "spelled" wrong, at least according to common American usage. (CA isn't part of the former British Empire!)

Sorry, but it is a bit irritating when my point seems to be sailing over so many heads.

BTW, I will spell comprehension any darn way I choose. :p

After the last two clues I gave (posted at 4:01pm EST), the only other help would be to spell his name! They were give-away clues.

Not Monk. Mark got it again. Bird. Charlie "Yardbird" Parker. laugh

Here's maybe a little harder one. (Which is good 'cause I need to leave the office for today).

I fell in love with a young woman, who stunned me by entering a convent. I impulsively proposed to her older sister, and she agreed to marry me. Unfortuntely we were totally incompatible. She had so little regard for my music that she cut up my manuscripts to use as hair-curling papers!

Matt's right again. Wow. Okay, a hard one. I mean really hard. Google-hard. ('cause I need a break for today).

I was killed when a German submarine attacked and sank the ship I was in. There were many survivors, but not me, because I had demanded that I be paid in pure gold for my premiere which I carried with me at all times in a special belt under my clothes. I was wearing this belt when the ship was sunk, and it instantly pulled me down below the waves.

Who am I?

Gryphon,

As a person mostly uneducated in the subject, I have to admit this was an interesting thread.

So tell me, how many of you are cheating and looking up the facts on the internet? Ducking. whome
