Curious....

Fri, Jan 27, 2012 at 12:35 PM By: Craig

I'm wondering......just how many dedicated Godsmack fans, who are also animal lovers, have pets who's names are either related to the band, or one of the guys? I have a black cat, that I rescued nearly 3 years ago while only being 4 weeks old....and named him Sal (Sully) Vatore. Big Sal for short.

So.......How many of you have done the same?

    I wanted to name my dog with something associated with Godsmack because she was conceived on the night my daughter and I went to Cincinnati to see Godsmack.....but, in the end, I couldn't think of anything appropriate to name her, and there were so many puppies, that we just called them something, anything, and she is a brindle dog, so we called her Brindle, and it stuck. But, if she had been male, her name would be Sully!! LOL

    When i had Sully on the list...people at work thought of Sully from Monsters Inc. i was floored....nooo. GODSMACK! They say with dogs, commands, one syllable, name should be two syllables, so Sully would have been perfect. He's aquarian too...Feb 10th. oh well next dog....
    thanks for letting me off the hook :)

    We kicked around going to Syracuse last year to see his Avalon show, but in the end....our work schedule didn't cooperate well. Thanks for sending link for the "Chain"....truly one of his best!

    As far as NOT naming your pup after the Sully-meister....well, this time we'll let it slide...Lol! My Sal got his name after I texted a lady friend that lives outside of Detroit, who is a devote GS fan, and she thought that Sully was a great name....but I chose to use his real name instead. Sal even has his own FB page....and uses his first & last name for searching for him. Spoiled rotten my little guy is....and that's OK with me!

    i love Stevie!! i've aways thought she'd sing amazing with Sully. Totally off your topic- have you heard the chain....Sully did it as an encore with his Avalon tour. OMG, him and Lisa on that song....fabulous!

    Pure poety...especially with Stevie Nicks! Music too, has gotten me through a few "rough patches" in life...and @ times has kept me grounded...

    as a matter of fact my lab/spaniel mix i named gypsy because i love stevie nicks and i had just brought her home from a shelter at 8 weeks old..i was thinking of what name her and that song came on the radio...my boyfriend at the time told me i was a gypsy because i moved several times in three years..mostly because it was hard to find decent apt with a dog and i had a beautiful sheepdog for 10 beautiful years...also i was a traveling nurse//music got me through some tough times....
