So, what's your blues name?
I have no middle name. But if I use my nick as a middle name I come up with:
Ugly Dog Rivers
I like it!
I might even adopt it as a stage name.
My Wu-Tang name: Tuff Professional
Sleepy Money Thompkins, the 2 first seems fitting!
Skinny Boy Rivers - maybe at one time...
Dave_K, thanks for reminder of The Legendary Blues Bagpipes Of Jamie Mcgee. Part two is most instructional on the origin of McGee's signature wheeze.
Frequent Flyer 909
Sleepy Gumbo King. Yeah, I can see me nodding off over a bowl...
Not blues-related, but name-related: one of my buddies played at Jazzfest this past weekend, and the reportage (the New Orleans Times-Picayune, I believe) described his guitar solos as "curt and dirty," so he has declared he's going to change his name to Curt Dirty.
I don't think he actually will, but still...
Disability Fruit President.
Happy Liver Jones. Mmmm.. gin and tonic.
Boney Dog Hopkins
Old Gumbo Lee. Maybe I need to move south.
Jailhouse "Eyes" Jones
Sleepy Liver Lee
"Boney Bones Lee"........
Sleepy Gumbo Bailey ...
(who I imagine looks somewhat like Tommy Chong's immortal Blind Melon Chitlin')
Frequent Flyer 909
Three-Fingered Plantane Eisenhower.
Syphilitic Strawberry McKinley.
Numb Nuts Nixon.
Dr(unken) Spree in honor of Skippy
I was thinking more like Blind Lemon Jefferson, but I'd kinda like to hear McKinley's stuff.
Gangrenous Banana Taft has some harsh sounding stuff, too.
Just call me Boney Legs Jones!
Old Bad Boy Parker
Ugly Boy Franklin here.
Do you think that Elvis would have been as successful if was known as Texas Bones Bradley?
How 'bout Buddy Holly as Sticky Hips Rivers?
Or Eddie Cochran as Texas Dog Hopkins?
since i'm tired of name-generators, i'm going with Blind Lemon Pledge or Myopic Orange Julius.
Peg Leg Gumbo Brown. I can dig that.
Lonely Haley Tosis
Old Liver Davis (lots a livers round these parts...)
Fat Back Jefferson
