Origin[edit]

Not that it matters much but does anybody have a decent ref to show where ian would prefer to be noted from as there has been some discrepancy in this recently?

Edits by User:George best77[edit]

Does anyone feel the recent edits by User:George best77 are in any way an improvement? Some of the information introduced is incorrect, some of it is just a mess. --Michig (talk) 17:32, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Origin again[edit]

Manchester or Timperley, Altrincham, Cheshire? Please discuss here to reach a consensus. Thanks.--Michig (talk) 18:24, 1 February 2012 (UTC)

Please note the guidance from the infobox template:

The city from which the singer or group originated (that is, the city where the group was founded; or the city where individual performers started their career, should it not match the location of their birth). If the city is not known, specify at least the country.

There are several references that confirm he grew up in Lymm, Warrington until the age of 5 and then moved with his family to Altrincham where he attended Altrincham Boys Grammar School with John Squire. It's no secret where Ian Brown is from - it's well documented. Altrincham is a town, which includes areas such as Timperley and Broadheath, over 7 miles south of Manchester and has a Warrington postcode. It's like claiming someone from Croydon is from London.

Emaphasis should be on the city where individual performers started their career, should it not match the location of their birth - this field is not for where the subject grew up or is 'from'. Did he start his career in Altrincham or Manchester?--Michig (talk) 18:14, 4 February 2012 (UTC)
  Timperley is in the borough of Trafford  part of Manchester    Brown started his career while living in Hulme as documented in linked books  Chorlton  Withington and Wythenshawe Manchester  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.217.72.16 (talk) 23:43, 14 March 2012 (UTC) 

Legal Problems - Air Rage[edit]

I know that Ian Brown is a genius, and a hero for millions, so this is contentious.

But as it's true, and part of his life, why shouldn't a biographical article mention it?

The question for me isn't whether the Air rage incident from 1998 should be included, but HOW?

Any suggestions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Our Man In Bananas (talkcontribs) 21:45, 24 May 2012 (UTC)
