Well done, Paul. Milo O'Shea played Dr Durand Durand in Barbarella (as Stuart almost got) and that is where Duran Duran took their name from.

takes a bow, and stands to take in the applause and admiration...but is useless at posing trivia questions and leaves the door open for someone else to post a question.

Perhaps because it was simply fun to take a stab at it!

Yep You are wrong but why not try again?

It was probably the Supremes although Smokey & The Miracles notched up more than most people realise.

It is William Bruce Bailey.  He was born William Bruce Rose, Jr., but his mother (I think) had him take his step father's name.

Nope. He changed his name from William Bailey to William Rose when he discovered that Rose is his real father's name Rose, that's true. But he later changed it again. What is his real name now?

OK, Karen - you're close enough. It was a bit of a trick question. He legally changed his name to Axl Rose in 1986! However, hardly anyone knows that and usually say Bill Bailey.

Karen - William Bailey (Bill Bailey!) was his original name.

Are you sure?  Everything I've found said Rose was his original last name.

BTW - Is he legal name now W. Axl Rose?

Oh good, I thought I was seeing things.  I just saw something on TV about him a few weeks ago where it talked about his name but I couldn't remember it...

D'OH! Silly me. I put it the wrong way round  [:I] - yes, it was Rose then Bailey.
But that doesn't alter the fact that his name now is legally W Axl Rose.

That, I believe, would be something to do with a bully who was woolly.
