Alan's name Edit
During the first series of Phoenix Nights, Alan is referred to as "Alan Johnson". However, on the poster advertising 'The Karate Kid', he is referred to as "Alan Dalton". It is possible that Alan Johnson is his real name and that Alan Dalton is a sort of stage name. It is yet to be cleared up.
Alternate work Edit
After the Phoenix Club was burnt down, Alan and Jerry joined forces and began working in a supermarket. Together, they would sing covers of famous songs, which advertised certain products available in-store. He gave up this job when Brian decided to reopen the Phoenix Club.
Alan's father Edit
Before becoming a member of the band Les Alanos, Les was in a band with Alan's father, Frank. Frank then left the band to set up a Right Said Fred tribute band by the name of 'Right Said Frank'. This led to Alan deciding to take up the position of pianist, replacing his father.
