Crowe's money saving band
16:30 06 December 2005
Russell Crowe has changed the name of his band - to save money.
The millionaire actor has changed his old group's name from Thirty Odd Foot of Grunt to The Ordinary Fear of God because they have the same initials, meaning he won't have to splash out on new merchandise.
The heartthrob actor is quoted in Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "The old band was Thirty Odd Foot of Grunt, that became known as TOFOG.
"I needed a name with the same initials, so I didn't have to buy new T-shirts for road crew and new luggage labels etc."
He added: "There is no deep spiritual meaning to it - just the chance to save a few bucks."
Earlier this week, it was claimed Crowe is to become a father for the second time.
The Hollywood heavyweight, who has a toddler son, Charles, announced that his wife, Danielle Spencer, is pregnant at a dinner in Melbourne following the Australian Film Institute Awards last weekend.
Rock singer Spencer is not yet showing any signs of a baby bump.
