Man Legally Changes His Name To Led Zeppelin II
A Missouri man is following in the footsteps of athletes Chad Ochocinco and the pending Ron "Metta World Peace" Artest, by picking a new name that many would consider unique, to say the least. According to StlToday.com, George F. Blackburn recently changed his name to Led ZeppelinII. He explains that after his third divorce, he was looking for a fresh start and a way to reinvent himself. Zeppelin says it's working, too, adding that his life has "improved a thousand fold" since he adopted the new name. Led goes on to say he picked the name because he had a childhood fascination with the Zeppelin airships and has been a huge fan of the rock icons, and apparently their second album "Led Zeppelin II," ever since he saw them live in the late '60s. L.Z. -- as his ex-wife calls him -- says he has also earned the approval of many Led Zeppelin fans, explaining that they'll often buy him a drink after they learn his name.
