Music Artists Most Frequently Found In Crossword Puzzles

Updated on September 5, 2020

Adele Has Enough Vowels To Appear Regularly In Crossword Puzzles


As he continues to make music news, he is growing close to having a regular appearance in daily crosswords. Up until Sean Ono Lennon gained some renown for his recording or producing, his parents have been the family members most frequently in the newspaper grid.

His mother Yoko could have been the answer to various clues, such as Beatle wife or Lennon's lady or maker of avant garde Japanese art. Dad, the rock legend John Lennon, most often has been used as the answer to a clue like Beatle middle name.

The son's latest project has him working as the producer on the new release by the band the Temples, which is called “Paraphernalia.” According to the promo for the track, in it the group is questioning the depth of real connections in the digital world.

As the single climbs the charts, the Temples will likely become a household name. Two thirds of the producer's name have already been famous names since the Sixties, but he may grow well-known enough to earn a regular appearance in crossword puzzles.
