Moon Unit One and Dweezil are the other two, Sparky. Dweezil and Ahmet Rodan are musicians, although I think only Dweezil has stuck with it.

Thanks to Phil and smitty for naming the Zappa sprogs - actually 'sprog' is probably slightly more preferable to both Dweezil and MoonUnit I would have thought!
Did you know Chesney Hawks is an anagram of Cheesy Whan..
oh dear! I've forgotten it again

One proper name which I think is a classic is David Goldflies. He played bass with the Allman Bros. when they reformed in 1978 - with a name like that perhaps he should have featured on Alice Cooper's Zipper Catches Skin?

Another name I thought sounded quite good was Preston Ritter (Electric Prunes drummer).

Bog standard name and an annoying presence on a number of Van Morrison albums including Days Like This, The Healing Game & Back on Top (imo, of course).

Agree with JB - I didn't enjoy Van's output from that era anyway and BK's higher-range echoing of Van's lines made it even more difficult to listen to. Not BK's fault, to be fair - I suppose he only did what was asked of him.

Re: the Cramps - didn't they for a while also have a bassist called Slim Chance?

I like some of those Van Morrison/Brian Kennedy tracks, particularly No Religion. Morrison had been using that technique live for a while, with saxophonist Ritchie Buckley providing the echo. It was especially good on the version of Summertime in England from the 1990 tour (can't find a Youtube link, sorry).

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Jan 2013 23:03:08 GMT
I saw him around 1988 and Summertime In England was just incredible, transcendental almost, which was the intention.

Ritchie was some player. I wonder where he is these days. I saw him playing with Van and The James Brown Allstars in a pub in Belfast and blowing the James Brown chaps right off the stage. In fact after Ritchie left they took a break. When they came back they, The JB chaps tried to use some of Ritchies tricks, which was a tad embarassing. Van was outstanding.

Heres a pic I took, having been forewarned that he might appear http://www.flickr.com/photos/66340104@N05/6053900929/in/set-72157627326243991/
