About Subversive

There is something just not right about our world and it involves the self centred, self serving nature of people.


Correctly guess the identity of this person, at the peak of their fame between 1960 and 1990, and you could win!.

To go in the draw to win a bottle of Helen & Joey Estate Layla Cabernet Merlot, all you have to do is tell me WHO I AM!

Each week I will give you 10 clues to base your answer on. Each of the 12 people I describe will have been at the peak of their fame between 1960 and 1990.

For 12 weeks every Friday - until Friday December 1, 2017 - I will draw that week's winner.

Every correct response goes in the draw to win a bottle of this excellent wine. But please email your responses and postal address here, rather than leaving them in the comments, to avoid spoiling it for others.

Last week's winner was Wayne 'Mopar' May of Hocking, in WA, who gave the correct answer of Joni Mitchell. Congratulations, Wayne, your bottle of delicious wine will soon be on its way!

So here is this week’s mystery. Who am I?

  • I was born in the United States during World War II.
  • I died unexpectedly in California, when Dick was running things.
  • My birth name and stage name were the same.
  • It was very difficult to pin down my genre, but I was distinctive.
  • I was considered charismatic, electric and one of the best of all time.
  • I had sex with Leonard Cohen.
  • It was never confirmed that they made a movie about me.
  • My family was very religious, but I was far too rebellious.
  • With every performance, I gave a piece of my heart.
  • I had a transitory relationship with my big brother.
