What's in a Name?
August 23, 2013
Naming a band is often times one of the most strenuous process a musician goes through. Coming up with a quality name for your band is not the easiest thing to do. ”Canary” came pretty quickly to me, but this is less about coming up with a name. It’s more about changing the name of a band.
Several friends of mine have bands and most have experienced a name change. I’ve come close, but I haven’t pulled the trigger. Partly because I don’t want to, and mainly because I felt that I haven’t had to. Fleetwood Mac never changed their name despite the parade of guitarists who went through the band.
I think Fleetwood Mac is my favorite band name of all time. I wouldn’t change my band’s name either if my band was named Fleetwood Mac. It’s a hearty name. It’s just a couple of last names thrown together.
Maybe I should take a hint.
