[prMac.com] Louisville, Kentucky - Ever wondered who the members of the '27 Club' are? Or who first turned The Beatles on to pot? Or maybe you're one of those music fans who think they know it all already? Whatever you level of expertise, Rock Music Trivia is the perfect challenge for everyone who loves debating music trivia with their buddies over a couple of cold ones. With one of the largest databases of any music trivia app, it provides the opportunity to put those long-standing musical arguments to bed while starting a few new ones at the same time.
A Nest of Eggs, LLC introduces Rock Music Trivia 2.1 free for iOS, an update to their best-selling Rock 'n Roll Heaven Entrance Exam trivia game. Version 2 includes questions from five categories, including: Classic Oldies, Classic Rock, Lyrics, Mixed Rock & Roll, and the '80s and Beyond. Players can play solitaire games or challenge others. Scores are based on Correct Answers, plus bonus points for Difficulty and Speed and there are Amazon gift certificates for achieving 100,000 points or more. Featuring Open Feint connectivity, the app also allows users to submit their own questions and four possible answers, which will be seen by others along with the question-maker's photo.
* More than 7,500 questions with new questions added daily

Gary Guthrie, the brains behind the ever-growing compendium of questions, knows the kind of thing that gets music fans' grey matter turning over. "We believe that the true music fan has an insatiable appetite for trivia that not only tests their knowledge, but also informs and enlightens them about musicians and their backstories," said Gary. Spoken like a true music aficionado. Beyond familiarity with the music and lyrics, there are those who also know who designed the Led Zeppelin album covers and where Jim Morrison got his hair cut. It is the knowledge of music trivia that separates the real music lover from the rest.
Gary Guthrie is definitely someone who fits into the "real music lover' category. He has hung out backstage with everyone from KISS to John Denver, given birth to the Classic Hits/Rock format on more than 20 major market radio stations, and received gold record awards for his early support of artists like Bruce Springsteen and Meat Loaf. In the process he has amassed a library of juicy, insider information on all aspects of rock & roll. He has even become a music trivia question himself, as the radio programmer who spliced together solo versions of "You Don't Bring Me Flowers," spawning Barbra Streisand's and Neil Diamond's legendary duet.
