Thread Name: What not to call a band
Subject: RE: What not to call a band
Once, for a year and countless gigs, I played with a singer who chose to switch from his own name to a "band" name, in an effort to appear more democratic to the band. He was a tyrant either way. He named the band "By Special Appointment". Folks would approach us and ask what our name was and why the gig was by special appointment. Stupid name.
Some years later there was the band "...and the Penetrators", not related I believe to the many current bands with a similar name. All we got were drunken house parties and the like. Figures. I couldn't keep up to the level of partying anyway.
