Re: Stage Names?
My drum teacher dubbed me "Hammahead" or "Hamma" (hammerhead, after the shark, pidgin style).
He's a licensed massage therapist as well as a drummer/teacher, and when I lay facedown on his massage table the first time, he started giggling. After ducking the question for a few minutes, he explained that the visual made him think of a hammerhead shark.
So it's that or Sticks/Styx, which is what one of the guys in my band calls me.
(There's one more I can't think of right now, given to me by an enthusiastic audience member and which is shouted occasionally at a gig.)
