From Jake to Jake.

Postby pejale » Sat May 13, 2006 1:58 pm

I once read that it was Ozzy who thought of changing Jake's name from Jake Williams to the more rock 'n' roll Jake E.Lee because of Jake's love of Bruce Lee and Martial arts. Has anyone else heard this story? or have any other info on who or where the name change came from? I know Zakk Wylde's name was also changed when he joined Ozzy's band.
Sorry for the idiotic question, it's Saturday night and the drink is beginning to flow.

afaik, Zakk changed his name by himself.

Upon joining Zyris is when he started calling himself Zakari Wyland.
He got the name from the TV show Lost In Space’s character Dr. Zachary Smith.


... and yeah, Jake E Lee has a better ring to it then Jake Williams,
or even Jakey Lou ;)

Both names are very "vital" Jakey Lou Williams & Jake E. Lee for it's whom JAKE is and it makes up his whole Spiritual Rebel Rocker being. God Bless!

Zakk Wylde`s real name is Jeff Wiedlandt. Zakk himself wanted to change it...
