ILieTooMuch
So I was scrolling through this page and decided to do this I thought it would be cool because of the spelling (having no spaces because other than that It's spelled right) and because for me It's true. I feel like it would be really good for a Gen Z band.

Danny Wilson
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.
