    Band name stands for ‘New Rhythm and Blues Quartet’
    Terry Adams has been the only constant member of the band.
    They made Billboard’s Hot 100 only once, when ‘Get That Gasoline Blues’ peaked at #70 (1974).
    Despite what the title suggests, ‘At Yankee Stadium’ was a studio album, not a live recording.
    They recorded an album with wrestling manager Lou Albano, ‘Lou and the Q’ (1986).
    Their big-name fans include Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, and Elvis Costello.
    Their live shows are unpredictable, as they perform without a set list and take audience requests.
    They were an unofficial ‘house band’ for The Simpsons for seasons 10 to 12 (when Mike Sculley, a fan, was head writer and executive producer).
    They celebrated the 35th anniversary of their debut album with a pair of concerts that featured appearances by every current and former band member (April 30-May 1, 2004).
