    You put the lime in the coconut.
  3. To start with I think you need 2 degrees in Be-Bop and PhD in swing.
  4. Shake it all up.
  5. Know your history of rock, dude. That's a good way to start.

    Simply claiming that you are a doctor of rock is 99% of being a doctor of rock.

    Two degrees in bebop + PhD in swing + Master of rhythm = Rock & Roll King

    I just want to add "Doctor" to my name. I though of getting a Doctorate of Divinity, but I don't really like fudge, and I don't belong to any major religion. But this is the USA; you can legally put "Dr." in front of your name for just about any reason.

    I want to be "Dr. Richard Davidson," and when people ask me about it, I want to tell them I have a Doctorate in Rock and Roll, Rockology, or something like that, like Dr. Johnny Fever, and I don't want any of them to shoot me.

    I need suggestions.
  16. Wouldn't you just be Dr. Dick?

    Well, that might be better than being a dick doctor, although that might pay pretty well...
