Bounding Main[edit]

Was wondering if someone from this WikiProject could take a look at this article and assess it per WP:BAND. The article has been around for awhile and there appears to have been some COI editing to it over the years. There's quite a number of sources being cited, but many appear to be WP:PRIMARY or otherwise trivial types of mentions, while most of the albums appear to be self-published. -- Marchjuly (talk) 06:13, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

Looks like it's WP:PROMOTIONal and the references appear to be WP:ROUTINE. The article does not meet GNG or BAND. Walter Görlitz (talk) 17:55, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

Band articles not linked from dab pages[edit]

Some help is needed here. There are about 170 band articles that aren't listed on the relevant disambiguation page, for example the article is "Foo (band)" but the disambiguation page at "Foo" doesn't have an entry for it. All that needs to be done in most cases is to simply add the missing entry to the dab page. Sometimes, however, the fact that an article isn't linked from there might indicate that it hasn't received enough attention: it might not be notable, or it might be undercurated. If you take care of any of these, please strike it through from the list below (or add {{done}}).

List of articles (pt. 1)

The list contains about half of the articles. If there's interest, I'll post the remainder. Thanks in advance! – Uanfala (talk) 22:07, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

RFC at Stéphane Grappelli[edit]

There is an RFC at Talk:Stéphane_Grappelli#RFC:_Gay regarding whether or not the article should state that the subject was gay. Please provide your perspective! –Roscelese (talkcontribs) 04:07, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Proposed deletion of Quinnes Parker[edit]

Notice

The article Quinnes Parker has been proposed for deletion because it appears to have no references. Under Wikipedia policy, this biography of a living person will be deleted after seven days unless it has at least one reference to a reliable source that directly supports material in the article. The nominator also raised the following concern:

Article appears to have been unsourced since created in July 2015.

If you created the article, please don't be offended. Instead, consider improving the article. For help on inserting references, see Referencing for beginners, or ask at the help desk. Once you have provided at least one reliable source, you may remove the {{prod blp/dated}} tag. Please do not remove the tag unless the article is sourced. If you cannot provide such a source within seven days, the article may be deleted, but you can request that it be undeleted when you are ready to add one. -- Marchjuly (talk) 05:09, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

Commercialism of major bands[edit]

I posted this at DGG's talk page and welcome comment here:

The article Maroon 5 appears to be serving a very commercial purpose with footnotes referring to YouTube videos of their work, such as this. I'm shocked to see this listed as a "good article". Any recommendation on how to cut out the commercialism in articles like this about big time bands? I see this stuff all the time when I google a band and wonder why we tolerate it. We almost need a special article to tell us how to get rid of this. Does that exist, possibly at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Musicians? I wonder if it is hopeless? Please let me know what you think.

--David Tornheim (talk) 05:40, 26 December 2018 (UTC)

It's pretty easy actually. If you can find references that are not "commercial" (whatever that means to you) that support the same content, replace the references.
In some instances, if only primary sources support the claims, it's probably safe to claim that the content isn't notable and after a discussion, it could be removed. Walter Görlitz (talk) 07:08, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
@Walter Görlitz: It's not a reference to prove the content as far as I can tell. It's more like an advertisement for the video in my opinion:
Farrar co-wrote and co-produced a few of the band's songs on almost all of their studio albums and also remixed their song "Woman" (from the Spider-Man 2 soundtrack) on Call and Response: The Remix Album, released in 2008.[1]
Do you agree? The references is filled with stuff like this (8 Youtube videos--probably all to their songs). I see this all the time for music. It's hard to know what is and is not good WP:RS for a band as big as Maroon 5. I was tempted to just start deleting but I wanted to check with others who have seen this before first. --David Tornheim (talk) 07:17, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
Deeply disagree. It's a reference to the remix. A better source can likely be found though.

Attn: Editors - Re: Howard Hanson - could an "Infobox person" also be included on the article?[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians - Whenever an Editor has some extra time he or she might take a look at the article about Howard Hanson - the noted American composer and director at the Eastman School of Music. The article was recently upgraded to a B Class and might be enhanced by including an "Infobox person" since it is supported by the Wikiproject Biographies/Musicians. Many thanks in advance for your consideration and assistance72.69.152.90 (talk) 00:32, 25 January 2019 (UTC)JJ

Callum Adamson[edit]

There seems to be a lot of superfluous CV/resume-type material in the Callum Adamson article which makes it difficult to assess the notability of the subject. There are refs, largely to reliable sources, but mainly in regard to him being the son of a notable father. Is there wheat amongst the chaff? Mutt Lunker (talk) 14:41, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

A new newsletter directory is out![edit]

A new Newsletter directory has been created to replace the old, out-of-date one. If your WikiProject and its taskforces have newsletters (even inactive ones), or if you know of a missing newsletter (including from sister projects like WikiSpecies), please include it in the directory! The template can be a bit tricky, so if you need help, just post the newsletter on the template's talk page and someone will add it for you.

MC Pitman[edit]

I'm wondering if someone from WP:MUSICIAN could take a look at this and assess it for notability. I came across the article becuase someone started a discussion at WP:BLPN#MC Pitman about it. The article has been around for awhile, but has pretty much been unsourced the enitre time. I tried to do a bit of WP:BEFORE, but I'm not finding any WP:SIGCOV in WP:RS which might show how he meets WP:BAND or even WP:BIO. Someone posted on the article's talk page that the subject is Wikipedia notable, but none of those things are really relevant to determining notability and the BBC article mentioned is more of an PR fluff type interview than critical coverage in a reliable source. Anyway, I'd figured I'd check here before starting an AfD just in case some is able to find any WP:NEXIST type of coverage. -- Marchjuly (talk) 00:37, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

I found the same and nominated for AfD. Walter Görlitz (talk) 00:48, 12 April 2019 (UTC)

Da Tweekaz[edit]

I don't know how this article got onto Wikipedia, but it needs some serious work around the edges. I'm a bit concerned about notability as well. Jalen D. Folf (talk) 04:48, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

As I Lay Dying (band)[edit]

Hi guys,

So I started an individual GA reassessment on this metalcore band's article nine months ago...yeah, you can say I got distracted, ahaha. I managed to let a whole season from my favorite hockey team come and go by before I finished the halfway done review. Anyway, I was reminded in March, and it had been bugging me at the back of my mind until today when I found time to do it. I have completed the reassessment and I am willing to keep it open a good long while - like a month - for improvements (it's only fair since I did accordingly). I am letting everyone know immediately, since there does seem to be a hefty chunk of work that needs to be done in addition to what I've already fixed, although I believe saving it is possibly feasible. Please let me know, either here or on the article's talk page, if you're interested in putting some work in. Thanks for your attention! dannymusiceditor oops 03:21, 24 April 2019 (UTC)
