Nothing Succeeds Like Essex

Interesting snippet of information discovered during a Quiz Night on Friday: some guy called David Cook changed his name to become David Essex and then go on to fame and fortune as a singer and part-time actor.
Why on earth would you change your name from David Cook? What’s wrong with you, man?
There must be some sort of cosmic significance to this discovery – I found myself listening to the War Of The Worlds Soundtrack today by accident and, sure enough, David Cook/Essex was there as the Artilleryman. Spooky.
I think, therefore, it’s up to me to serve this name well. On behalf of all David Cooks everywhere.

  1. David changed his name as there was already a famous David Cook at the time.he didn’t have much of a choice if he wanted to act.
