MATCHBOX 20 frontman Rob Thomas was shocked to hear most of his fans couldn't even name him - despite being avid admirers of his music.

Audience members at one of the German-born rocker's gigs were asked in a survey whether they could name him as the vocalist - and amazingly a majority had no idea.

But luckily Thomas saw the funny side of his anonymity, and plans to be more attention-grabbing at his future performances.

He says, "I haven't heard that before. That's very funny - oh well, I guess I'll sing louder at the next gigs."
