APTV caught up with Andy Black to talk about the (many) nicknames he's had throughout the years. He explains that, more than anything, they are a way to show how he's grown as a person and as an artist, starting with his MySpace moniker Andy Sixx.

“The way that I built myself, not unlike my favorite comic book characters, was to create this version of myself,” he says.

Watch the video to hear why he chose “Andy Black” and how social media played a part in everything.
