I once started as Heavy G of TAB. At that time Heavy D was kewl!
So not able of thinking up something else i used it for a while.
Later I liked Hardcore/Gabber house and used HardHead for a while.
Hey i'm dutch and had no idea that it could mean something else in english/merican slang. Some people gave me rather strange attention on the i-net when using that nick
When i was down (love problems, no one understanding me.. loosing friends etc etc) I changed my nick to Ayreon. Ayreon is the main character in a rock opera by Ayreon. He's a blind minstrell during the dark ages (not very original story) He gets to see the future.. signs about it. People find him strange. He's misunderstood, cussed and spit at and finally dies by Merlins hand. I felt related to that character. and i never really changed it since. Although you can find me on some online games as Lethal _Vomit.
Got the idea for that during my army days, when my seargent was too drunk to do the field run and puked all over an ants nest. The vomit proved to be very lethal for the ants
Well thats my story in a nutshell
