Mark Beech's 1998 predecessor, The A-Z of Names in Rock generated over 50 radio interviews, 15 articles, 7 features in nationals and two serialisations. This extended and updated version covers more genres than just rock (e.g. pop, punk, indie, reggae, soul, country, blues, folk, jazz, heavy metal, grunge and rap artists and bands) and will appeal to music fans internationally, as well as being the must-buy book for pub quiz fans. With almost 3,000 entries, it's a chance to discover why artists chose their names - and which ones shouldn't have. An informative and often humorous read, 'the world's leading expert on music names' (BBC), Mark Beech, is guaranteed another best-seller.* The KinksRay Davies said it was in honour of their 'kinky boots, similar to those worn by Honor Blackman in The Avengers'* Bono (Paul Hewson KBE) The U2 frontman, also known as Bono Vox, named after Bona Vox hearing aids.
