Removed Merchants of Cool review[edit]

The following text had the POV tone of a review:

Bad Company - In Concert: Merchants of Cool DVD 2002
In 2002 DVD, was confident the quality would be great, but was still totally unprepared for the experience. The tempo and energy of each song is secure with Simon Kirke ’s powerhouse drums which lead Jaz Lochrie’s rich bass to set the musical foundation. Dave Colwell masters the lead guitar in fine “Ralphesque” tradition (Mick would/will be proud)…enter, Paul Rodgers . As front man, Paul Rodgers is the epitome of “rock star”, entertaining, enticing, and seducing his audience while his vocals are unparalleled. “The Voice” share’s each song’s story with a hungry audience by manipulating each word/each note into an emotion---a smile, a tear, a chill. For example, watch (or listen to) track one, “Burning Sky”, as he sings “…I’d rather die than see you with another man.” His anguished vocals, molding only the last word of that sentence, tells the entire story and proves beyond any doubt that Paul Rodgers is greatest rock vocalist of our time. This DVD is a must get and Bad Company’s “Joe Fabulous” tour in 2002 is a must see.

Most of it did not seem salvageable but perhaps someone can rewrite it to NPOV standards. --Dhartung | Talk 19:59, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

I reverted a long section added by User:69.196.136.97 in this edit due to apparent violation of copyright (source). That page may be used as a source for adding information to this article, but Wikipedia cannot copy it word for word by law and policy. In addition, the tone is inappropriately POV for an encyclopedia article. --Dhartung | Talk 20:05, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

added a cleanup tag to the main article. Overpowering wikilinks...how many times does Paul Rodgers need to be linked?. Also some POV needs to be either cited or removed.( biggest and best???) 156.34.142.158 16:53, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

Was vs. were[edit]

On 2012-03-17, ‎71.58.25.239 changed a line from "Bad Company were an English rock band" to "Bad company was an English rock band". Since they are British, doesn't it seems reasonable to use the former instead of the latter (see Collective nouns in UK English)? AlanM1 (talk) 21:29, 17 March 2012 (UTC)
