 I think Screamin' Scott got cut out of your picture of Sha Na Na (I don't see him!), and I believe the majority of their past members have advanced degrees.

Brian May.  Rating of 11.   Amazing.  All four members of Queen have college degrees.

That's actually Jay Bentley on the left on the Bad Religion bass rather than Brett Gurewitz, but he's a pretty smart cookie all the same...

I would like to point out Milo Auckerman of the Descendents who did his post doc in biochemistry at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Coincidentally, the Descendents were on Epitaph records, which was founded by Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz.

Based on the Telecaster (guitar, not bass), cheekbones, and haircut, I think the picture at the top of slide 11 is Jonny Greenwood,  not Colin Greenwood

You've got the wrong greenwood. Colin plays bass, Johnny plays guitar.

That is Colin's brother there in the picture, Johnny. Ironically, ol' Johnny hasn't got a diploma himself. The only member without it.
