When the awards go out for the musicians with the best name surely Sleepy LaBeef must get a look in.

As his early bio attests this man was born into it.

“LaBeef was born in Smackover, Arkansas, the youngest of 10 children,he was raised on a melon farm. He received the nickname “Sleepy” as the result of a lazy eye. He moved to Houston, Texas, when he was 18. There, he sang gospel music on local radio and put together a bar band to play venues as well as radio programs such as the Houston Jamboree and Louisiana Hayride. LaBeef stands 6.5 ft (2.0 m) tall.” – Sleepy LaBeef Wikipedia
