The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, David Bowie, The Goo Goo Dolls, Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, The Eagles, Dire Straits, and Jimi Hendrix all have one thing in common: Before they became famous, they had to choose a stage name.
In this book the author tells why bands and performers chose their names and shows that this is just as much a part of the path to fame as is the writing and performing of songs.
You will also be shown Rock Connections between groups and other famous people. How is David Bowie connected to The Monkees? What do Nirvana and Faith No More have in common? How is Elton John linked to Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx)?
Over 130 performers from around the world are featured in the book. Take a "Look Inside" to see the roster!
