I Know the Bass But I Can't Place the Name
Sun., Aug. 28. 2005 2:46pm EDT

Some people never can seem to catch a break.

Since joining the band in 1995, Keith has been given an incredible gift of mistaken identity.  People don't necessarily think he LOOKS like somebody other than himself, but they always seem to get his name wrong.  This phenomena started at a Waffle House in Georgia during our 1996 tour, when the waitress mistakenly called him "Stan," and it's continued full force ever since.

The stage plot at our August 26 concert for Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs CO has Keith's last name incorrectly marked as "Naynie."

We consider it our duty to keep track of the names Keith has acquired over the years, but we only count the names he was given by people who genuinely got his name wrong ... not by people who decided they wanted to give him a nickname.  

ApologetiX scored a national Christian rock top 30 hit in 2004 with "Lifestyles of the Rich & Nameless." Keith may not be rich, but he's certainly not nameless either. Then again, in 1999 in Donora PA, somebody thought he WAS Rich. At least that's the name they called him.

For the record, here's the progression and origin of the names, as best as we recall:

Keith (given name)
Stan (Waffle House in Georgia – 1996)
Ted (Ohio – 1997)
Gary (Bradford PA – 1998)
Stu (Lock Haven PA – 1999)
Curly (McDonald's in Ohio or Indiana – 1999)
Kevin (on the job in Pennsylvania by a thankful customer – 1999)
Baby (All-night diner in Reading PA – 1999)
Kenny (Denny's in Albany NY – 1999)
Rich (church in Donora PA – 1999)
Speedo (church in Donora PA – by a pastor – 1999)
Lee (concert in Houston TX – 2000)
Mr. Galparin (airplane on Texas trip – 2000)
John Crawford (I can't remember where but it happened – 2000)
Brian (concert in Kansas – 2000)
Frank (I can't remember where, but it happened – 2000)
Sean (concert in Austin TX – 2001)
Mark (concert in Sept/Oct 2001 - can't remember where)
Omar (same concert in Sept/Oct 2001 - can't remember where)
Cliff (photographer who took publicity shots – 2001)
Ryan (member of Poor Baker's Dozen called him that at a concert in Minnesota – 2001)
Ed (Some lady said this to Keith's wife, Krista, in October 2001)
Kent (Mickey Hall in Oklahoma July 2002, according to her husband, Tom)
Heath (lady at hotel desk in Lansdale PA - May 2003)
Pete (concert promoter in Lansdale PA - May 2003)
Brad (DJ Dave Purin at the WJLU in Daytona/Port Orange FL - September 2003)
Naynie (stage plot in Colorado Springs CO - August 2005)

Remember:  We don't count it if somebody TRIES to give Keith a new name.  The beauty of this list of names is that they were names used by people who unintentionally got Keith's name wrong. No cheating!
