    why the hell did Johnny Logan change his name? ‘Sherrard’ is awesome.

    I agree with Una… It was certainly a mistake by Johnny.

    Although, I’m not too sure about labelling Spiral Yeah a ‘personality’. That would indicate his possession of a personality, and one that does not provoke annoyance at that… In my own humble that is.

    Sterling list my man.

    Una, I think Johnny may have a Superhero Complex. He is (as far as I know) still Sean Sherrard when he is writing lyrics. Then, when it comes to singing, he rushes into a phone box and emerges as Johnny Logan.

    John, you will no doubt be relieved to hear that I edited the original draft title for the post, which was ‘Real Names of Irish Celebrities’.
