Irish name?[edit]

Why does this article start off "Joe Egan (Irish name: Seosamh MacAodhagain)"? Why give his Irish name? No reference to Ireland anywhere in the article -- and the connection is not explained. The article on Egan's close associate, Gerry Rafferty, doesn't start off "Gerry Rafferty (Irish name ?????"). Can we presume that Egan is or was from an Irish family? Yet the text runs on to tell us that he was "born Joe Egan". I can't see any reason to include "(Irish name: Seosamh MacAodhagain)" unless he has been known by this name at some point. If so, it needs to be explained. Thanks to anyone who can clarify this. Marcusswann 18:50, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

I could see no reason for it. So I've removed it. --Escape Orbit (Talk) 16:04, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Burnt Cinema?[edit]

The following sentence really ought to be rewritten but at the very least it should be sourced: "Also Joe Egan worked at the cinema when he was a young boy, he was 14 when he worked there and one time out of nowhere he burnt the cinema down that's how he got the idea of the song 'Out Of Nowhere' in 1979." It might be difficult to prove the song motivation but a burnt cinema is a public event that would be in the public record if it had happened. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:52, 6 November 2015 (UTC)
