Who Are You, Who-Who, Who-Who? -- The Real Names of Rock Stars Quiz

Excited to see Elvis Costello in concert on Saturday night, it got me thinking about other rock stars who are better known by stage names or pseudonyms. So beyond the ones I’d already knew, I did a bit of research and came up with this Real Names of
Rock Stars Quiz.

See who you know from the list of real names, keeping in mind it includes both living and dead musicians and that I’ve expanded the “rock” genre to include blues, rap and more.

If you would like to print it out, click here for a PDF. Please do not cite the answers as Comments; I will post them as a PDF in a few days and call it out in a new blog post. (Update: I've now posted the answers, accessible through this post.)
