John French said this recently:
"Although, by sheer coincidence, Zoot Horn Rollo was originally my stage name. I was christened that in late 1967 and then after Bill joined the band, Don came up with the name Drumbo for me, and Zoot went to him. It never felt right on me anyway. I believe Alex actually made up the name Zoot Horn Rollo as a joke one day."
