Scope of the lists[edit]

What is the geographical and linguistic scope of the lists, particularly the generically titled year in music lists? Currently, the titles imply universality but the subject is mostly the year in US music. Should non-English language and non-US events be spun off into different articles (like the years in British music series) or added to the generic articles? This may be a hypothetical now but I'm interested in the opinion of other contributors. —  AjaxSmack  03:56, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

The scope is global. The aim is to include information on significant music events all round the world. This is being achieved, and is gradually being improved all the time. SilkTork ✔Tea time 00:24, 20 July 2012 (UTC)

Should be more[edit]

At present this page is just a list of deaths. That isn't much for a "Timeline of Musical Events" I have in the past added important albums to this timeline only to have them deleted. If this is a page of musical events then it should include major albums that have transformed the present culture or are key masterworks of whatever genera. It appreciate the wide range of musical classifications and it should be informed by major musical achievements across the world. I plan to start adding key works to the list and pray they wont be wiped off again. Otherwise change the name from timeline of musical events to timeline of dead musicians. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Davros6999 (talkcontribs) 03:26, 7 July 2012 (UTC)
