The original article was filled with so many inaccuracies and typographical errors that I decided to replace it completely instead of attempting to edit it (my apologies to the original poster). I've drawn on my own knowledge of the band, as well as articles from the Crack The Sky website, Crack The Sky Archives website, and 1995 Baltimore City Page article. These sources are listed in the article's "external links" area. In addition, I added the band's logo graphic and the "Infobox (band)" construct to make the article conform more to Wikipedia's standards (I hope). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Radiofreemountairy (talkcontribs) 20:54, 2 January 2006 (UTC)

I couldnt find any information on them being Rolling Stone's 1975 album of the year, I am not sure of the accuracy of this fact. (i am sorry if i didn't put this in the correct place, or ignored some standards or something, i am new to this) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 12:25, 1 December 2006 (UTC),

You made a recent change to an article that removed sourced data, and replaced it with unsourced data. Wikipedia relies heavily on sources to verify the arruracy of articles. In an attempt to provide a valid source for your most recent edit, I searched the California Board of Psychologists web site. Since there is no Palumbo in the directory, your recent change is completely unsourced. If what you say is true, it is unfortunate that the source states that Mr. Palumbo was a "fake" psychologist (which infers that he was not licensed in any state).

Please do not remove well-sourced content from Wikipedia, and replace it with unfounded speculation. The contributors work VERY hard to ensure that the content here is accurate, and changes of this nature undermine the entire Wikipedia project.

  1. I don't think the Controversy section belongs in this article, so I have removed it. Despite any legal problems John may have had, they do not have any thing to do with Crack The Sky. If mention of this "controversy" is relevant to Wikipedia, perhaps a John Palumbo page should be created and this information included there. As of today, the citation [] generates an "internal server error."
  2. Regarding The Latest News section. While I am a fan of the band and appreciate this info, it is more of insider and/or fan news and as such should not be included on wikipedia. This kind of information rightfully belongs on the band's web site or other places like the Crack The Sky Archives site.

Re: "Controversy"[edit]

The content does not belong in this article. It not music-related and has nothing to do with the band. As mentioned above, if there were a John Palumbo (musician) article, then it would be fine (even recommended) to include it there. However, a band member's extra-curricular activities is irrelevant in the band's article, particularly when it has nothing to do with music. Unless you can get consensus, do not re-add it to this article. Closenplay (talk) 01:57, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

meager success[edit]

"they have had only meager success in the Baltimore area" -- is this article about the band's success in Baltimore? Sounds like a typo. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:55, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
