FAQ > John Deacon

Why on the album "Queen" is john deacon's name listed as deacon john?

When the first album was being worked on Roger and Freddie decided that it 
sounded much more interesting to switch John's name around.  Being new
to the group, John didn't feel comfortable protesting much, so it went on
as Deacon John.  By the second album, he put his foot down and went back to being John Deacon.
