    There is a long history of people changing their names for performance purposes. Bob Dylan, Lady Gaga, Steven Tyler... the list goes on.

    I bring this up because I'm listening to the late classical organist E. Power Biggs (1906-1977) right now - in fact I saw him perform once. I like that name, and if I ever adopt a stage name, that might be it, since he is not using it. E. Power Biggs on guitar.

    What would your showbiz pseudonym be, if you get to the point where you might want one?

    I just use GS Harper. Which are my actual initials. But it looks cooler in print, and it actually made a difference in attendance and sales. When I was just using “Greg”, nobody really cared. When I started using “GS”, I saw a quantifiable difference on the business side of things. Now I use it for pretty much everything. I never liked my name anyhow. GS works just fine.
