Right guys, I've got a question. And a pretty bad one nethertheless, a question.

I'm someone who writes a lot of music, but I haven't actually put anything out yet, but I really dislike my name, and I'd rather go by another name. I'm not talking about a name like 'Captain spacebob' or 'flying-saucer jim', I just mean a casual, ordinary-type name. Eg. i know that Johnny Marr (guitarist) is actually called by birthname Johnny Maher and obviously David Bowie, was born David Robert Jones. It just seems a bit strange to me, when it comes to personal relationships and such.

So do I just put out my music under the stage name I want, and stick with it? Or is there a little more to it than that?

Thanks for reading

You must chop off your left testicle and a big toe of your choosing. Ridiculous, yes, but I don't make the rules.

Presumably, it'd just be a case of performing consistently under the name of your choice, until people associate your music with your stage name. Vincent Furnier didn't go onstage telling people he was Vincent Furnier, and I don't think Saul Hudson went around under the name Saul - That's why everyone knows them as Alice Cooper and Slash, respectively. If anyone asks your name, as a bad/ performer, give them your stage name

You're free to do whatever you want pal. Just don't go too cheesy with it. Or do go, if you're in a retro glam band

I'd use a stage/artist name too, if I created my own music.
#7
What's your name? Or your first name at least? Also what sort of music do you play?

Call yourself Max Payne.

Neo Evil. Although as a stage name I usually use Ariadne. Neo Evil makes me look like a shemale.

The origin of the name is from my freshman year in college. I failed inspection from our RA like 3 times in a row because I had laundry all over my side of the room. Thus, Dirty Dave. Nothing sexual about it
