Prince, Ringo, all the Ramones. Elton John has two made-up first names. Freddy Mercury, his name is Farrokh. Bing. Alice.

Once you start looking at punk bands, it's so common that the list could be endless.
Lux, Ivy, Crocus, Iggy, Sickie, Tesco, Mono, Jello, Exene, Ari, Derf, Rat, Siouxsie, Cheetah, Epic, Tomata, Poly, Tory... on and on.

James Brown famously had three Collins brothers in his band: Catfish, Cheese, and Bootsy.

Tommy Erdelyi and John(ny) Cummings used their real first names in the Ramones. All of the later substitute Ramones did, too, except for temporary fill-in Elvis Ramone (Clem Burke). Joey was Jeff, DeeDee was Doug.

Reverend Horton Heat (James Heath). Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters,, Cleanhead Vinson, Magic Sam... Actually, there are really a lot of them. My all time favorite, the Beautiful Bouncing Bagelman sisters changed their name to the Barry sisters for business purposes; a bit strange, since their business was singing Yiddish songs.
