Although it’s (mostly) obvious that most of these old rockers have changed their names, I was surpised to find out what their real names actually were. Here’s my list of 5 Rockstar’s Real Names You Never Would Have Guessed:
Bono (U2) – Paul David Hewson
Alice Cooper – Vincent Damon Furnier
Elton John – Reginald Kenneth Dwight
Gene Simmons ( KISS ) – Chaim Klein Witz
Sting – Gordon Matthew Sumner
==### Bonus: What every guy should know about U2
Not everyone digs U2—I’m not totally crazy about them myself—but I certainly have a healthy respect for the band. With that said, every man should know at least a few random facts about the band.
- They’re from Dublin, Ireland
- Members: Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen, Jr.
- Formed in 1976
- Most popular albums: Achtung Baby and The Joshua Tree
