Pracock terms[edit]

Did Jeff Baxter himself write this page? It reads so lovingly that would seem to be the case.

That was my impression too, this needs to be rewritten by someone who isn't Jeff Baxter.

Actually, a lot of this seems to be copied verbatim from this article. --NeuronExMachina 19:21, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
I've revised the entire article to make it more encyclopedic. Vandelay 21:35, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Did Baxter play on "Can't Buy a Thrill?" I thought he joined the group for their second album "Countdown to Ecstasy", and that's it. No "Pretzel Logic" either. And the Rikki solo is either Diaz or Dean Parks; probably Parks. Frunobulax (talk) 20:46, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

What is wrong with someone who posts this as a question in a talk page? You are on friggin' Wikipedia: go look it up. (You'll find he did play on the first SD album.) GeneCallahan (talk) 12:41, 24 March 2013 (UTC)

Who Cares![edit]

The Skunkster rules! I added JB to the list of famous people wearing a moustache. Too bad I couldn't get a recent pic. Fenrir2000 18:34, 5 June 2006 (UTC)


You have to be pretty dim-witted or ignorant to not know that "Skunk" is a type of marijuana.

Or just not a complete burnout. Frunobulax (talk) 19:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
Still though, why is the nickname not explained although it is such a prominent part of his name? He is always mentioned as, literally, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter in every publication. Why isn't he just named Skunk Baxter, as every nicknamed person would be? Someone research the nickname and mention it.
Baxter doesn't comment on the record regarding the origin of the nickname. Binksternet (talk) 18:08, 22 February 2009 (UTC)

The nickname "Skunk" was attached to Mr. Baxter at least a decade before it ever had any connection to marijuana.

The first Cannabis Indica varieties didn't begin to arrive in the US before the late 1970's and early 80's.

The nickname dates to his high school days in Connecticut.

The actual reason for it, ( though published at least once ), doesn't merit further discussion.

There should be a link to a discography somewhere ... .

Why isn't it an automatic feature of this kind of article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wundersnake (talkcontribs) 23:15, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Actually, see [1]. ⤺ms.⁴⁵ 15:18, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

Copyright violation[edit]

I added a copyright violation tag, although I'm actually not sure what proper procedure is when the article is a blend of copyrighted and non-copyrighted content. --NeuronExMachina 04:33, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

CAC Study[edit]

Baxter was recently revealed to be part of a study that advocated for increased domestic use of U.S. spy satellites. I added that with some sourcing. Too bad the rest of the page isn't sourced. Claymoney 20:48, 15 August 2007 (UTC)


I added another pic in the article --leahtwosaints (talk) 03:47, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

What you did was take one away and put one in its place. I think there's room for both, and I think the previous one was superior for the infobox, so I put yours down in the body, left-aligned because the image is right-facing. Say, when was that one taken? I severely doubt that it was snapped in 2005 like the Flickr page says. The whole look of it, especially the hair, says otherwise.

King of the Hill[edit]

Wasn't Skunk associated with the music for the TV-show, 'King Of The Hill'? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:21, 13 August 2010 (UTC)

Christian Rock?[edit]

There is no reference to Baxter being involved with "Christian Rock" as it appears under the photo. Is it true? GeorgeJanney (talk) 18:57, 18 May 2012 (UTC)


Mmmmm ... pretty sure the Skunkster's now dead, no? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:03, 11 September 2013 (UTC)
