^ Please do join us, Jake! Yes, it's the letter of the first name that changes, not of the surname.

We have skipped NN so far, so I add him (or her) to the list:

N.N.

Nomen Nescio, who stands for all the persons in history whose names we do not know. Anytime but not eternal, anywhere but not omnipresent, existing but not noticed.



From now on, let's return to the appropriate order and proceed with PN.

(Have you seen a YouTube clip where Nugent hunts and shoots keyboards? Totally crazy stuff!)

For the YN, I'd like to see if you or someone else (!) will figure him out. With this hint I'm certain of that.
He's a musician that became internationally known due to a certain succesful album by someone most of us appreciate.

I'll be joining in the game (with the new "O level") later today.

^ So, my hint about the Y.N. I was thinking of wasn't as revealing as I thought. I forgot to mention that the album in question is from the mid-80's. Perhaps NOW the answer is only seven seconds away...? Wink
