A bit of fun here and I'm curious :)

You all know Marvin Lee Aday, Chaim Weitz, Richard Melville Hall, and (omg) Elgin Baylor Lumpkin. But not as those names .

 

I don't hate my name but it is already taken by a very famous musician. Whilst fame has eluded me I got to thinking what name I might choose? And what would fit my music, (intentionally contrary to the few odd bits I have posted here I am Jazzy, Trip Hop, Ambient rather than 'song' based)

 

But What would you call yourself? preferably along with your general music category

If I had to come up with a name I’d try Juke

I like the old Grady Martin style rock a billy and honky tonk and juke joints (where the jukebox got it's name )

So Juke

 

There is a song called "JUKE"

My band and I would be Oscar Mayer and the Hot Dogs. ;)

 

I once dated the sister of Carlos Santana

Of course not the famous one

 

But anyway, I can’t imagine why I would want a stage name

And I went to high school with Eddie Rickenbacker. But of course not the famous one.

OMG Gardo... on my walk to the beach, thinking of names this morning, thought "Riff... hmmm.... Riff Rafferty" as Gerry Rafferty was in Stealers Wheel... (this presumed thought of mine before I saw your post...) George Riff Raft? Riff Van Wrinkle? "Sunscreen of your Love"...

Which famous one - the fighter pilot / Eastern Airlines CEO, or the popcorn dude? :confused2::idk:

 

 

 

 

Oh, that's right - the popcorn dude was named Orville, not Eddie. Never mind. :o

Mike Stan? Wynn Skrean? Old Peckinpah film "The Ballad of Cable Hogg"? Hmmm Gig Young already taken... what is opposite of "the edge"? (always hated that name).

The opposite of the edge is the center, i.e., the part that'f farthest from the edge. Maybe Dead Center?

I was thinking of the WWI air ace. Dunno if they were related, I never asked. Plus, the popcorn dude's name was Redenbacher. ;)

I'm surprised John Hall hasn't hit him with a cease and desist letter for using a name so close to Rickenbacker. ;)

Yeah, after all the public might not know the difference between popcorn and musical instruments. Reminds me of Chik-Fil-A suing a guy who made "Eat more kale" t-shirts because consumers might be confused. :rolleyes2: (http://time.com/3631523/eat-more-kale-slogan-chik-fil-a/)
