    Remember back when we just had Bono, Sting, Madonna, etc.? Seems like all these gooks new in music feel the need to change their name to some stupid egocentrical "logo". [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img] Am I the only one bugged by this?

    'Course, "shit" would be a good simple name for most of them.

    I thought Prince was a real dick when he did it a few years ago, but I read in an article that he changed his name to a symbol becuase he was still under contract with his record label. Once he changed his name to a symbol, he could do whatever he wanted to without the record company making any money from him. He was adamant about being able to create without the restrictions of a label... [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    Yeah, but Prince has always operated under a different set of rules than anybody else.

    Point taken though, and agreed with.

    I just hate anything trendy, and the one-name thing is about as trendy as it gets.

    yeah warner brothers (i believe was the label) had prince under contract and wanted him to put out the same type of music where he wanted to grow as an artist...so he changed his name, looked like an ass for a couple years while wb just put out greatest hits discs and that stuff to fulfill his deal.

    It's really the media who keeps calling the artist's by one name:

    J-Lo
    Christina
    Britney
    Avirl (sp?)
    Puffy
    Enrique

    Then you have the artist's themselves:

    Pink
    Shikira

    from this point forward, i would like to be known simply as A-Punk
    Gozer the Traveller will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldronaii the Traveller came as a very large and moving Torb. Then of course in the third reconciliation of the last of the Meketrex supplicants they chose a new form for him, that of a Sloar. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day I can tell you.
