Jarvis Cocker Becomes Just Jarvis
PULP frontman JARVIS COCKER is dropping his last name for his forthcoming solo release - so he can be held in the same esteem as MADONNA, J.LO and PRINCE. The singer thinks he's famous enough to be known by just one name. He say, "I'm going to be called Jarvis. I've decided to drop the Cocker and try to enter the realm of people who are known by one name. The point of doing a solo record is that it's supposed to be a bit more personal, so you may as well call me by my first name now. "My J.Lo years. That's it exactly. She has always been an influence."
