Not really a "famous" alter ego...
But during U2's Joshua Tree Tour their opening act cancelled for a few shows so they donned wigs and cowboy gear and went on stage as a country western band called The Dalton Brothers.

Peter Gabriel was very into "alter-egos" during his Genesis days but i don't know if he had a name for any of them.

Thom Yorke & Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead as Venus in Furs (Velvet Goldmine Soundtrack)
