% publicity??[edit]

Haskell's single is described as having "only 25% TV & radio publicity"; the Williams/Kidman record "had 95% publicity". Can anyone explain what these percentages mean, because I'm damned if I understand.Widmerpool 10:37, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

I'll second that. Can anybody involved in marketing/PR/publicity take a short break from fellating Satan and explain it, please? AuntFlo (talk) 05:55, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Too much emphasis on King Crimson[edit]

The opening paragraph suggests Haskell is best known for his work with King Crimson. This may have been true before the release of "How Wonderful You Are" but I would say he's better known for that single as a solo artist now. --Ritchie333 (talk) 09:23, 17 October 2008 (UTC)

Re-wrote first paragraph to add emphasis to solo career. --63.229.24.98 (talk) 20:42, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Verwood or Bournemouth[edit]

Although the article has Haskell born in Verwood, the Infobox has his origin "Bournemouth Hampshire, now Dorset". Unlike Bournemouth, Verwood has always been in Dorset and is still nestled up against the border with Hampshire as it always was. I wondered why Bournemouth is mentioned? Because it's the most significant close place? Wimborne is more appropriate, and both historically and presently correct. If it's because of some connection with Fripp etc., then it still should be Wimborne. So, I have made that change. Haskell currently resides a few miles north of Wimborne.98.66.3.22 (talk) 13:03, 13 April 2011 (UTC)
