aka: Stage / Professional names different than their own...

All through history Actors, singers, musicians, even radio announcers have changed their names for a boos in their careers. Sometimes it's to shorten a long name, sometimes it's to get a name easily remembered, sometimes it's to differentiate them from another famous person with the same or similar name.

My partial list includes:
Robert Zimmerman aka Bob Dylan
Richard Starkey aka Ringo Starr
Lewis Brian Hopkins aka Brian Jones
David Robert Hayward-Jones aka David Bowie
Peter Halsten Thorkelson aka Peter Tork
Gordon Sumner aka Sting
Reginald Kenneth Dwight aka Elton John
Eric Patrick Clapp aka Eric Clapton
Farookh Bulsara aka Freddie Mercury
Chaim Witz aka Gene Simmons
Stanley Bert Eisen aka Paul Stanley
Stevland Hardaway Judkins aka Stevie wonder
John Mellencamp aka John Cougar
