NPCs in WoW - Celebrity Musicians

This post is part of my Celebrities and Personalities as NPCs in WoW series.

Taking this pic is what inspired me to start my NPCs in WoW series!  I really like the look of this rare in Vashj'ir.

Lady La-La (Lady Ga-Ga) is well known for her iconic music, her outlandish costumes and a truly unique sense of style which is reflected in her clothing, music and videos.

George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher, singer of the band Cannibal Corpse.  He was quite an avid WoW player, and pretty stoked he had an NPC named after him.

Osborne the Night Man - could he be a throwback to Ozzy Osbourne, Prince of Darkness?

 Floyd Pinkus (Pink Floyd) certainly has a rock star took to him don't you think?

 This is a reference to Eminem - whose alias is Slim Shady (which he himself describes as an exaggerated persona of himself).

Named after 80's punk rock band, Siouxsie and the Banshees.

 Named after the late Jam Master J, one of the founders of Run DMC.  I still think they should have a character who was black.

 Councilman Millstipe and Ambassador Berrybuck are named after Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills and Michael Stipe - from R.E.M.  There is also Lady Keira Berrybuck and Baroness Dorothea Millstipe who are part of the Moroes encounter in Karazhan.
