    Each name below is the birth name of a famous musical star. We know them now by stage names. Quick - copy the list below and see how many stage names you can match up with their "real" (birth) names.

    Then - tell us how many you were able to get before resorting to Wikipedia! Be honest.

    Paul David Hewson
    Chaim Witz
    Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr.
    Brian Hugh Warner
    Annie Mae Bullock
    Reginald Kenneth Dwight
    Richard Melville Hall
    Stanley Harvey Eisen
    James Newell Osterberg, Jr.
    Ellas Otha Bates
    Michael Peter Balzary
    Vincent Furnier
    David Howell Evans

    I got 7. I actually listed my answer but I edited my post so I wouldn't spoil the game.

    I knew 2-6, 12 and 13.

    You made quite an impressive showing. I tried this before I posted it, and only got four of them.
