Something that makes you different from everyone else that people like.

E.g. you may have two heads, so you can sing a duet with yourself. ;)

What would be your stage name?

Well, when it comes to stage names, I think they should be provocative in some way. Buttcrack Johnson and the Sparkle Balls is mine. What's yours?

If you're talking in low tier business jargon, I personally don't fancy your chances of making it as an artist. Not everybody has something to say.

Was reflecting on a couple of professional songwriters I know this morning. Both have had, or are still having, successful careers, have won industry accolades and briefly brushed shoulders with the big time.
But whilst one of them is satisfied with all that they've done and received, i get the feeling that the other still has a slight regret that he never quite made it to the very top.
Which does just emphasise that the whole concept of success is such a personal one that i can no longer remember what point i was making... :blush:

Sorry about that. Anyway, glad things are working out well for Mixerman and good luck to aw and joe with the new direction.

My stage name is Wildlife Cathedral. I use it as a solo artist, and for any band incarnations.

If any of my past band members are reading this and are thinking about contacting me, please "go away and leave me alone"
