Brainlove and PWL are gonna be laughing too!
The name is everything! I hope so anyway - I'm fucked otherwise!
John Paul David will be HUUUUUUUUUUGE !
it's more of a name for a hairdresser...
I was proud of that one!
in that article as an example of someone who ISN'T called Paul - but 'Bono''s real name is Paul!
...Paul Edward Wagemann?
pffft pffft etc
"It's surprising to discover that an everyday name can lay claim to such an accolade."

It was bizarre they seemed to assume Prince, Bono or Slash would be in there given only one person has ever had each name.
"Ventura Barba from Yahoo! Music Europe said: "When you think of rock 'n' roll names, you instantly recall the unique ones like Bono, Prince and Slash."

He will surely be a world-beater!
