Band Name Origins:

  • The band (yes it's a band and not a male solo singer) was originally named Spencer Tracy, named after the famous actor. They got a record deal and proceeded to record their first album. When they were about to release it, they and their record company were given notice by the late actor Spencer Tracy's estate that if they continued to call themselves "Spencer Tracy" the estate was going to sue them. So forced by the situation (and understandably from pressure from their record company) to quickly come up with a new band name, they chose Danny Wilson. They took it from a 1950s Frank Sinatra movie Meet Danny Wilson. Which was a favorite movie of the father of band members Gary Clark and Kit Clark. Submitted by: Edward

Stupid Band Names:

  • Clearly it sounds like it should be one person. But it's a group! Why would a group want to pick a name that consists of a first name and a surname? Submitted by: Mr. Critic

Two all-male bands combine to suggest an individual with a certain full name fronting a band. (Maybe the surviving members of the band with Juniors in its name could possibly recruit someone with the surname Wilson to make this come to fruition?)
