    I really wanted William Murderface but it was already taken. So, Larry Dallas it is.

    If I had to have one... Griz?

    It's been my nickname for as long as I can remember. We don't get to pick our nicknames so I guess mine could have been a lot worse. The reason for it is dumb though. I hit puberty very early and had a decently hairy chest by the end of my first year of Jr High. Grizzly Adams was a thing then . . .

    Thanks guys...

    The name I am known by here at TB, which not coincidentally is my middle name. My first name is reserved for personal friends.

    A punk band I was in circa 1979 gave me the nickname "Bobby Bellevue" because of how crazy I'd go onstage.

    I once performed in a classmate's recital under the name "Jacqueaux Hysteresis" ...I trust the derivation needs no explanation.

    On a couple of recording projects in the early 1990s I played guitar under the pseudonym "Cleveland Fricke". Cleveland because my band had recently done what we unanimously considered our Best. Gig. Ever. in Cleveland OH, plus I just like the word as a first name (note, this was years before Family Guy). And Fricke because I had attended Fricke Elementary School in Pittsburgh PA for a couple of years, plus I noted that three of my favorite guitarists had last names that started "Fri..." (Bill Frisell, Robert Fripp, and Fred Frith). Not that my guitar playing deserves to be anywhere near their esteemed company...

    No. I got that name from a Rodney Dangerfield show in Orlando in the 80's.

    The Gods of Hubris are Mighty and to be Feared


    Sin Eater

    It'll probably be Dave though.

    The drummer's stage name wouldn't be R2, would it?

    I was in a band with three guitar players all named Dave. We called the pedal steel player Sitting Dave, the older guitarist Old Dave, and the youngster was fro boy because he had a natural and it just seemed right.
    As for me? Hi, i’m Fred, nice to meet yas. What’s my last name? Nunya, it’s short for nunyadamnbidness. :D

    In the 80's, the drummer(someone you would all know)of a band I was in nicknamed me the "dirgemaster", as I was fond of noodling around with drony Peter Hook/Steve Severin/Simon Gallup type baselines. Musically, the band wasn't too far off from that kind of stuff anyway. It came in handy on a gig when the keyboardist's DX7 went down(yep, the 80's), and he drove to his brother's real quick to grab another one. In the meantime, on the spot, we knocked together a half-hour rendition of Joy Division's "She's Lost Control" to stall for time. Packed the dance floor. In the thank-you section of an album by a spin-off project of the drummer's famous band, they used that, as a joke, many years later. Other than that, earlier on, when shocking, anti-social punk stage names were all the rage, I was going to use "Eddie C***ring". Ain't no cure for bad taste.

    I was once in a band with some Italian/Anglo-Italian chaps. Gianni (Italian for John), Giovanni (also Italian for John), & John (possibly a Giovanni....), and my given name is Ian (which is Gaelic for John).
    I wish we'd called the band, "Dave" just to mess with people.

    No, he's the only drummer I've ever worked with who goes by "Drummy." In fact, he should have been called D2 since he was in the band before I was. I'd be D3. He'd make a great R2-D2: He's short and very difficult to knock over.
