Machine Gun Kelly's parents really painted their son into a corner when they put that name on his birth certificate. Also didn't help that he failed the entrance exam to the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Interesting fact...The two with the most unusual nicknames here, Machine Gun and Home Run, were both born with the same last name - Baker. :)

Good quiz Quizmaster!! Got 14/21, which I think is bad, but it is probably good for a Brit.

Had all but Chet, Josephine and Home Run, so I just started guessing random names and was surprised to get it. Never heard of any of those three.

I got Baker because I thought of Ginger Baker (even though he's not American)

I was surprised to see Elizabeth Taylor on here so I looked it up. I never realised that her parents were American
