MYSTERY RESOLVED: Graham Swallow writes:

I've just neatly adjusted my pop-geek trivia moron hat ready to pick up on a question you posed in the above article. You ask why Nat 'King' Cole perennially includes inverted commas, whilst TAFKAP does not. The answer is simple Nat 'King' Cole was born Nathaniel Adams Cole, therefore the King is an add-on. However TAFKAP (who is nowadays KAP) was christened Prince Rogers Nelson (an unfortunate name amongst the gay community perhaps...), hence no requirement for inverted commas.

Convincing... but what of Duke Ellington and Count Basie?
