Why did Charles Bronson, known widely as "Britain's most dangerous prisoner", change his name to Charles Salvador?

Bronson decided in 2014 to change his name in honour of artist Salvador Dali. At the time he wrote a message on his website saying: "It just happened, just come about, a thought, a vision, a new me... The old me dried up... Bronson came alive in 1987. He died in 2014. He had a good run. Never beaten. Kept his morals.... Come on, the boy done well. But he's finished. His time stopped ticking...It's now Salvador all the way to Disneyland. Your [sic] welcome to join the ride."
