Moon Mullican from Country music article[edit]

Former Western Swing singer/pianist/guitarist/accordionist Moon Mullican emerged as a versatile and unclassifiable country hitmaker in the 1940s with a penchant for the blues such as "Pipeliner blues" as well as blues-styled ballads like "There's a chill on the hill tonight" and "I'll sail my ship alone" (his biggest hit). His style of music would echoe the later generes of rockabilly, Lonnie Donegan-style skiffle and early rock 'n' roll. Mullican was known as a country boogie artist when he sang and played uptempo blues boogies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Steve Pastor (talkcontribs) 00:26, 12 January 2008 (UTC)

The nickname "Moon"[edit]

I've removed this text from the article:

Moon Mullins, created by cartoonist Frank Willard (1893–1958), was a popular American comic strip which had a long run as both a daily and Sunday feature from June 19, 1923 to June 2, 1991. It proved so popular that men named Mullins [or anything similiar], born from about the 19-teens through the 1960s, were as likely as not to be nicknamed "Moon." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_Mullins#Origins_and_history

It's quite plausible that there is a connection - but unless we have a source saying there is a connection, it shouldn't be in the article, per WP policy on no original research. Ghmyrtle (talk) 18:56, 11 November 2013 (UTC)
