Quiz: Real Names Of Rock Stars

Below are some real birthnames of rock/pop/etc. stars that go by stage names. Some are easy, some are really hard, some are completely unfair but I think they're kinda funny.

I was looking for Billy Squier's real name. Not sure if it's his real name or not, but I didn't find it on a list. Anyway, I came up with this quiz instead.

Updated: Now with hints for the really tough ones.

1) Stuart Leslie Goddard

2) Walden Robert Cassotto (Hint: Covered by Kevin Klein.)

3) Florian Cloud De Bounevialle Armstrong (Hint: Beloved by Craig Kilbourne, Marshall Mathers.)

4) Harry Rodger Webb (Hint: British "rocker" recently mentioned a couple of times in the Guilty Pleasure song thread.)

5) George Alan O'Dowd

6) Paul David Hewson

7) Stanley Kirk Burrell (Hint: baggy pants)

8) Patricia Andrzejewski (Hint: Her first name stayed the same, shortened. Her fake last name was the name of one of her albums.)

9) Stanley Harvey Eisen (Hint: He is a knight of sorts.)

10) James Johnson (Hint: not super tough.)

11) Richard Starkey

12) Richard Allan Ream (that's right... Dick Ream) (Hint: candy-metal.)

13) Robert Cummings (Hint: now a director.)

14) Helen Folasade Adu (Hint: One word stage name.)

15) John Simon Ritchie (Hint: a nasty little bastard.)

16) Christine Perfect (unmarried name)

17) Artis Ivey Jr. (Hint: A rapper.)

18) David Robert Hayward Stenton Jones

19) Gordon Sumner

20) Declan Patrick McManus

21) John Graham Mellor (Hint: dials from England.)

22) John Ramistella (Hint: They've taken away his name.)

23) Frederick Farookh Bulsara

24) Gary Webb (Hint: synthesizers & pyramids.)

25) Steveland Morris

26) Marc Feld (Hint: clad in black.)

27) Saul Hudson

28) Edward Louis Severson (Hint: Seattle.)

29) Reginald Kenneth Dwight

30) Sylvester Stewart

31) Michael Balzary (Hint: Bassist.)

32) Sharyl James and Sandy Denton (Hint: Spicy duo.)

33) Rudy Martinez (Hint: One of the ultimate one hit wonders. His stage name is a single character. And I didn't specify a letter or number.)

34) Alan Palmer (Hint: He shouldn't have bothered changing it.)

35) Anthony Ray (Hint: even white boys can get this one.)

36) William Michael Albert Broad

37) William Bailey

38) Steven Demetre Georgiou (Hint: He's changed his stage name again.)

39) Michelle Harrison (Hint: Hore.)

40) Thomas Arnold George Dorsey

Final Jeopardy Question: This man, whose given name is Steven Duren, began his career in rock and roll hooliganism as a member of a street gang with Ace Frehley of KISS. He was one of the most name-checked rock stars of the early Ace of Spades blog, even though I couldn't name a single damn song he had anything to do with, gun to my head.

Bonus Fact: Trick question that doesn't work in this format. But Paul Revere of Paul Revere & the Raiders? His real name is... Paul Revere.

True fact.
