Worst Stage Names
Sep 10, 2003, 02:04
Seeing the thing about Taj Mahal Travellers reminded me of bluesy geezer Taj Mahal, and what an appalling stage name he had. Why not call yourself Telecom Tower or Brandenburg Gate?

I was thinking about how it was the worst stage name ever. Then I remembered Meatloaf.

Then, beyond that, Hanoi Rocks' bloke Nasty Suicide.

WTF?

'Hi Nasty, how's Mrs Suicide and all the little Suicides?'

Regarding G.P-Orridge....as shite a name as it is...he wouldn't have done so 'well' if he went under his birth moniker of Neil Andrew Megson!

yup... just imagine if the Throbbing Gristle records had all listed P-Orridge & Cosey Fanni Tutti as "Neil Andrew Megson & Christine Carol Newby"....not quite as avant garde. Apparently he was nicknamed "Genesis" as a schoolboy and "Porridge" from living on it every day as a pennieless dropout in his earliest COUM days. I didn't know until reading WOC that he's actually been officially titled Genesis P-Orridge by deed poll ever since 1971.
