Rock Star Pseudonyms
From
KSLU

Rs_logo_small "Pseudonym," it's a big Dr. Joe college word for an alias.  We'll be using this word with rock bands who used a different name for themselves if they didn't want to be recognized. We'll be showcasing the various talents on the Rock World who decided on an alias when they felt they needn't be recognized. This week's Rock School is like an episode of Scooby-Doo, but instead of bad guys, we'll be unmasking rock stars. Rock on!
