25 musical alter-egos

On the 1992-3 Zoo TV Tour, U2's Bono – already an alter ego of sorts (he was born Paul Hewson) – employed three onstage characters: The Fly, Mirrorball Man and MacPhisto. This last one, a leering lounge singer with devil horns, was an arch statement on rock excess (or something), but most of us were too busy going, "Hur hur, sounds a bit like 'fister'."
