Musician NPCs in WoW

Musicians are great celebrities – you can hide them with all sorts of plays on their names, and World of WarMucraft is no exception – some even have awesome musical abilities too!

Lady La-La (Lady Ga-Ga) is well known for her iconic music, her outlandish costumes and a truly unique sense of style which is reflected in her clothing, music and videos.  She has some cool abilities which you can see in my youtube video here.
George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher, singer of the band Cannibal Corpse.  He was quite an avid WoW player, and pretty stoked he had an NPC named after him.
Osborne the Night Man – could he be a throwback to Ozzy Osbourne, Prince of Darkness?

 Floyd Pinkus (Pink Floyd) certainly has a rock star took to him don’t you think?

This is a reference to Eminem – whose alias is Slim Shady (which he himself describes as an exaggerated persona of himself).

Named after 80’s punk rock band, Siouxsie and the Banshees.

Named after the late Jam Master J, one of the founders of Run DMC.  I still think they should have a character who was black.

Councilman Millstipe and Ambassador Berrybuck are named after Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe – from R.E.M.  There is also Lady Keira Berrybuck and Baroness Dorothea Millstipe who are part of the Moroes encounter in Karazhan.
