Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: The B-52's Live

New Wave band The B-52's performed "Planet Claire" in Dortmund, Germany, 1983. They took the "Peter Gunn" theme and added a 1950s science fiction sound, complete with lyrics about a woman who drove in from Planet Claire in a Plymouth Satellite.

John and Yoko said that there would never have been a "B-52's" without Yoko paving the way. BTW, why is there an apostrophe in the name of the band. Of what is the band possessive?

I don't think that Yoko's caterwauling inspired any vocalist.

The apostrophe is sometimes used after a series of numbers or capital letters. It really shouldn't be. A lower-case "s" is enough to indicate plural and doesn't cause confusion.
