Thanks. Fixed those type-ins and a couple others. Also motivated me to update this quiz for the first time in several years. It's pretty unwieldy now that there are so many inductees and many of them are pretty obscure, but it gives me a reason to keep up with the Blues Hall of Fame every once in a while.
