Durantula was always a terrible nickname, so I am glad he stop using it. Durant to most people is just KD and that is good enough.

Sometimes people try to hard to stick a nickname on someone, this was one of those instances.

Since everyone sues everyone, a man is now claiming KD swiped the name.

Durant was sued today in Federal Court by a guy named Mark Durante — a guitarist who, according to the lawsuit, was a big deal in the 80s … playing with Public Enemy, The Aliens, The Next Big Thing, and (our favorite) The Revolting Cocks.

TMZ obtained a copy of the lawsuit, in which Durante says he adopted the name “Durantula” for his “on-stage and performance persona” — and has used it to market “music, recordings, apparel, t-shirts, guitars, and related merchandise.”

The guitarist says he registered the “Durantula” trademark. He’s suing for damages and an injunction stopping KD from using the name.

No one knows who he is, so just give him the nickname and keep it moving.
