Beck's ego trip prompts name change for Sons of Fathers

This ranks among the dumbest things we’ve ever heard, but it’s real: representatives for “Odelay”/Scientologist/former Flaming Lips tourmate Beck last week contacted Texas roots duo Beck & Cauthen to express their fear that somehow one might be mistaken for the other. And because bassist Dave Beck’s full name is actually Whitbeck, the duo has graciously changed its name to Sons of Fathers, which, as it happens, is also the name of their debut.

We’ve already posted a song from the album, which has been pushed back to November. We can only assume Beck’s people have already been in touch with Jeff Beck.
