Etta James. She had her first hit in the UK a few years ago, when "I just want to make love to you" was used in a Coke (or was it Pepsi?) commercial!

OK here's a pretty obscure one.....who was originally known as (deep breath!) Florencia Bisenta de Casillas Martinez Cardona?

:D :D :D

Wow! Vikki Carr!
She's really well known in South America...so it seems she drank some Absinthe to change from Bisenta to Vikki!!

Ok..let's start a romantic night with your wife....have some wine, caviar, and melt her with some Barrence Eugene Carter 's music.

Iris Colleen Summers = Mary Ford....the LP clue kinda gave that away!

OK let's try this - which 60's bass player, known by a single-word name, was originally known as Trevor Leonard Davies?

:D :D :D

BTW, yeah, it was Dozy! (Trevor Leonard Davies, that is!)

OK - who did Benjamin Franklin Peay evolve into?

Nice clues - that'd be Sun Ra. I have to confess, I've heard of him but don't think I've ever heard anything by him.

OK - how's Eugene Dixon better known?

:D :D :D

Was it Black Francis then Frank Black? Or, vise versa?

Here's another multiple personality...
Who did Ian Fraiser Kilmister change his name to? And then finally to? Any additional AKAs are bonus.
