OK, then.  Who was the daughter of Dorothy Hawkins and (perhaps) Minnesota Fats?

Without even going anywhere near Google or the like (it's one of those odd things that sticks in the mind), Etta James.

It was indeed!  Jamesetta Hawkins, born in LA, later changed her name to Etta James.  She had a fascinating life, and it all shows in her wonderful singing.

Over to you. :)

OK, so the real one which, as a clue, has NOTHING to do with Rick Astley...

What links a cult 1980's horror movie, a toy from The Simpsons, a primitive firearm and an planet orbiter?

Your first guess is along the right lines, but wrong.

Your second guess is completely wrong.

I had to think VERY carefully about the wording of the question...

A little clue is that the film was also a TV series, also from the '80's.

Musket at one end, the other end, though, is considerably different.

I also know an album called Blunderbuss but not knowing who Malibu Stacey is has put me at a disadvantage.
