Plenty of rock stars perform under a stage name, but some rockers take it one step further – legally changing their name to match their on-stage persona.

That list includes Freddie Mercury (Farrokh Bulsara), Axl Rose (William Rose Jr.), and Joan Jett (Joan Larkin).  Rob Zombie (Robert Cummings) and Alice Cooper (Vincent Furnier) also go on the list, along with two members of Motley Crue – Mick Mars (Robert Deal) and Nikki Sixx (Frank Feranna Jr.)
