Roll The Bones

Farewell to Kings


Sorry, not correct. This means that your one guess for this question is used up, and the question is still open for scoring.

Come on people, look it up!

Question 3:

Let's make it a bit harder:

WOW! Good guess! Sure you haven't heard it before? It represents "the tremendous emotional impact of coming home" as he once put it.

The "winding down after a long tour" bit was never mentioned, but I consider that one additional aspect that is often true in their case. One point!

I'm aware of this, and it's been my plan to post around the clock, very irregularly, to make it fair for all continents.

I'm in Sweden, and as I'm writing this it's about 20 to 5 PM.
