This week's winner: Rocky Skyler of St. Petersburg knew that former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp formed the Rentals, which once featured keyboard player Maya Rudolph, now a Saturday Night Live cast member.
This week's question: Mark Knopfler, leader of Dire Straits, recently cracked a bunch of bones in an icky motorcycle accident. Money for Nothing was a wry dig at MTV and a huge hit for Dire Straits in the mid 1980s. To enter your name in the random drawing for the Weekend T-shirt, tell us what famous pop star, with a distinctive voice, sang back-up vocals on the tune.
