When I was a kid…
I dreamed of being a professional basketball player. While I loved the game and was pretty good, I turned out to be a whole 5 foot 6 inches tall. And, short, white guys don’t usually make it too far in that game, lol.
So, when I got a bit older, sometime during my teen years, I started thinking about what it might be like to be in a band. Of course I fancied myself as the lead singer. So what if I couldn’t hold a tune, play an instrument and hated performing in front of people. I’m sure we could work around all that somehow. Besides, girls dig guys in a band.
As a writer, I have made some attempts to write songs. But desipte the fact that I have authored two poetry books to date, I was never one who really had the knack for writing lyrics.
What I thought I was pretty good at was coming up with band names. So with that in mind, here’s some I don’t mind sharing that I created over the years.
In my early to mid teens…
A little later on…
Rules of Enragement
Sounds of Chaos
By the way, if any on your musicians out there want to “borrow” one of these names, go for it. Just make sure you give me the credit. And if you make it big, maybe a couple of million or so wouldn’t hurt either.
