Nightingale[edit]

  • Good job with the list of songs he has written/performed with the Eagles. However, I though Henley sang "Nightingale"? Could someone confirm this?

Also, is it worth listing "Take it Easy"? Randy sings high harmony over Frey's vocals on verse 2. From "I been standin on a corner..." to "slowing down to take a look at me". Shadow007 06:31, 8 April 2006 (UTC)

Henley sings lead on Nightingale. It is also worth noting that Randy was named Randy Herman Meisner not Randall.

And I don't believe The Eagles were ever considered "country-rock", but rather soft rock or simply, rock.

I disagree. They're often called "country-rock" artists. Whether they should be or not is a separate issue. Shadow007 02:37, 16 July 2006 (UTC)
The Eagles are considered "country-rock" owing to their early Western stylings with the 'Desperado' themed album a salient example. Certainly by the time of the entrance of Joe Walsh they had begun to gravitate towards straight-ahead rock. Nicander 17:49, 19 July 2006 (UTC)
That's all well and good. But what exactly is the point of debating it on the talk page of the Randy Meisner article? Shadow007 11:43, 20 July 2006 (UTC)

Recent Family Edits[edit]

I haven't removed the recent edits (yet), but rather cleaned them up a bit. Before I get into the issue of mentioning family members' names without reference, could you 97.92.164.92 please provide some sort of reference? You are claiming to be Randy Meisner's ex-wife, and if true, this is substantial. If false... Doc9871 (talk) 06:49, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Recent Image Removal[edit]

Recently, several images of Randy Meisner with other bands over the course of his career were removed, as they were apparently not "FU for this page". I am unfamiliar with which part of Fair-use policy the retention of these images would violate here on this page. Could an explanation be provided as to why the images of Meisner with The Poor and The Stone Canyon Band can't be here? Or is it the same "#8" argument? "#3a"? I look forward to any response... Doc9871 (talk) 07:13, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

In short, yes. I removed File:The Poor.jpg, File:StoneCanyonBand1.jpg and File:Poco 1969.jpg. These images all serve no purpose other than identification. None of these images is needed to better understand the subject, Randy Meisner. So they are invalid in this article. ÷seresin 07:45, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
I was looking for specific and direct "blue" links to WP policy, which is certainly not "required", but always help to educate less-experienced editors on WP policy, especially when coming from administrative editors. Doc9871 (talk) 07:49, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Oh sorry. WP:NFCC are the primary criteria which govern FU of images. ÷seresin 08:00, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay, so under policy points #1 and #4 you also want to exclude this image as well? All the points on the policy are violated here? How many? I see no reason not to specify certain points to other editors who are AGF. Clarifying which specific points under NFCC is more professionally accepted, and will possibly lessen potential misunderstandings... Doc9871 (talk) 08:09, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
All points do not need to be violated: all must be satisfied. So failing any one makes an image invalid for FU. If you are referring to the image in the infobox, that one is at FfD primarily for #10 concerns, with some of point #9 here flavor as well. (It is suboptimal that we have two sets of stipulations about non-free image use, but that's how it is.) ÷seresin 08:22, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Thank you, and I'm certainly not trying to tell you how to do your job. To specify the "of point #9 here flavor..." as you did is, again, what truly educates an editor far less experienced in these matters. I am not an administrator. I like it that when I do have an issue, some administrators automatically adhere to this unofficial policy by pointing me directly to the WP standard. It only helps further understanding, especially in the thankless task of "image removal"... Doc9871 (talk) 08:35, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
