That's Mr. Led Zeppelin II to You

If Lynyrd Skynyrd and Jethro Tull could turn people's names into bands, then why not the other way around?  George Blackburn, a 64 year-old resident of Missouri, has changed  his name to Led Zeppelin II.  Saying he decided his third divorce was a good time to set out to become a better person and that assuming the name of both his favorite band and album would be a good way to start fresh. $200 and some paperwork later, it became official.  He claims his life '...has improved a thousand fold.'  One irony is that Led Zeppelin once had to briefly change its name in 1970 to The Nobs when a woman by the name of Eva Von Zeppelin filed suit against the group over the use of her last name.
