Only after watching an interview with Yngwie Malmsteen had I realised that I've been saying his name wrong and no one ever corrected me. I pronounced his first name just like it's spelled .***smack self in head***

Anyone else been in this situation?
#3
i always said Necrophagist with a "g" sound like in "goat", but i found out from an interview with Muhammed that it's pronounced like "Jesus". i still say it the other way though.
#4
my friend used to pronounce Opeth wrong

I, however, know how to read a pronunciation key, so I just find that on wikipedia or something
#6
I always thought Michael Angelo Bation was a more Italian name, and I pronounced it with an Italian accent like "Michaelangelo BAH-chio". Yeah, I felt dumb.

I also definitely said Necrophagist wrong, like "Nek-row-FAHG-ist" and we all now know that it's "Nek-row-FAY-jist". And I pronounced Akercocke as "Ayk-er-****" and we all now know that it's "Ah-ker-koh-kuh"

I know you've got the sad smiley there for a reason, but I have to ask:

How can you POSSIBLY pronounce that wrong?

I still don't think I pronounce John Frusciante correct.

I believe its Froo-shon-tay.


For a little while, I said Maynard as its spelled, instead of May-nerd.

Some old lady asked me if my electric guitar was a bass. It clearly has Six strings.

I misunderstand one thing, and I apparently think everything on the internet and in the Pit makes sense.

Pure habit from other forums, I guess.
