FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Lyle E Style, his management and Webmaster receive hundreds of emails monthly asking a wide variety
of questions. To save time, we have documented the most popular
questions and posted them here (a concept we call “FAQ”). If your
question does not appear on this list, please feel free to contact
any of the crew at Electric Recordings.
Is Lyle E Style his real name?
Lyle’s real name is
Doug E Style but he legally had it changed when he turned 21. The
reason he changed it is because while growing up he was tormented by
classmates and peers by being called “Doggie Style”. When it got to the
point that he started dating, things got worse and he was advised by a
friend to change his name. That same friend suggested he should see a
psychic to see what he should change his name to. Upon going to the
psychic he was told that a reading was $40. He explained to her that he
just wanted to ask her one question and only had $20 on him. She took
the twenty and asked what his question was. He answered “I want to have
a successful career in the music industry and need to change my name
because everyone makes fun of my current one”. She asked him what his
name was, he answered “Doug E Style”, she looked at the twenty dollar
bill, shook her head and answered “change it to Lyle E Style”. As he
walked out of her office he heard her laughing but stuck with it
anyway, just to be safe.*
*Please note: The above
answer was interpreted by an intern from the summer of 2006 who found
the sketches of the failed storyline of the first full issue of the
Lyle E Style comic book series which was anticipated to be released by
Marvel Comics (which wasn’t and probably never will be due to lack of
interest by almost everyone except Style himself). The pilot one-page
comic can be found on this site. We can confirm that Lyle E Style is
legally his first and middle names.
What does the E stand for?
Mr. E Style’s
middle name is E - no periods and no quotation marks. It doesn’t stand
for anything other than a letter in the alphabet that comes after D.

contacting their publicists and/or management. Please feel free to
contact Style if you do have any other questions regarding his book, he
is very approachable and accommodating.
When will I see “The Life and Death of Johnny Kitsalano” in theatres?
The story is
written however the script is still being worked on. The concept of the
movie is currently up for sale to production studios. Chances are you
won’t see it in theatres for a few years.
What is the storyline of
“The Life and Death of Johnny Kitsalano”?
It is a comedic
drama, based on a true story but that’s all we can tell you unless you
are interested in financing the film.
Is the movie based on his manager Mr. Kitsalano?
Style claims that
their names are purely a coincidence and the script was written prior
to even meeting him.
