Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, William Michael Albert Broad or Peter Gene Hernandez: perhaps not all of you know these names, but in reality they are the original name and surname of some of the most famous singers in the world.
Musicians often change their stage name for commercial reasons, to shorten it or to make it easier to memorize. Others choose a new name for convenience or emotional reasons.
Here is the real name of some of the most famous musicians and how it was chosen.
The well-known specialized magazine Rolling Stone published in 2003 the list of the 500 best music albums of all time.
The list was determined through voting by a special jury composed of 273 musicians, critics, historians and personalities of the music industry. Each juror could express up to 50 preferences.
This ranking has then been updated twice, undergoing radical changes: the first change was in 2012, the second in 2020. In the latest version, 154 new albums have been added, 86 of them from the XXI century.
