This week's winner: Dave Hall of St. Petersburg knew that Robert Quine played guitar for legendary punk band Richard Hell and the Voidoids.
This week's question: Styx bassist and co-founder Chuck Panozzo, 53, recently came out as a gay man living with HIV. "I realized I was living a pathetic life, a life of quiet desperation," Panozzo says of life in the closet. "I put up this great facade. I tried to blend in, and I became a nobody -- to myself and everybody else." Panozzo joins a growing number of gay and lesbian rock stars who are honest about their sexuality. In 1998, hard rock singer Rob Halford -- who turns 50 this month -- shocked some fans by coming out in an interview with the Advocate. To enter your name in the random drawing for the Weekend T-shirt, tell me what band Halford used to front.
