Uniform style[edit]

I have changed this template to look like {{Dream Theater}} (which was based on the original {{Rush}}) and {{IronMaiden}}, so that we have some uniformity among the similar templates. It might be a good idea to come up with an actual standard for use on other band articles, assuming they require a similar template. Thoughts?

Love it! Genius, as always. Deckiller 15:05, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

Include songs?[edit]

This thread will serve as a discussion. Should we maintain a "Rush songs" section on the template, or just keep them in a category and link them when appropriate?

I agree that if too many Song articles are started, it may get cluttered. We might even be able to merge some of the song articles either I or other people have created. That's something to consider in the future. Deckiller 23:54, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

I thought it wouldn't be a good idea to have songs on the template seeing as though people would edit it replacing them with their favourite songs and over time it would get cluttered.
Maybe we could, like on the Pink Floyd and Kiss articles, have a separate discography page listing all Rush's albums and songs on it and also in the blurb on the top mention Rush's most popular songs (or something along those lines)? ( Davehard 10:34, 11 December 2005 (UTC) )
Yes, let's keep songs out of the template. I have experienced something similar when editing the articles on individual types of aircraft...everyone adds a photo of that aircraft as operated by their pet airline. Eventually, we just separated them all to separate pages. —Joseph/N328KF (Talk) 14:23, 11 December 2005 (UTC)
Well, I only put songs on that list that had articles made. Perhaps what we can do is, eventually when all of Rush's "singles" have articles, we can put that under a "Rush singles" category. We also have the song articles linked from their respective article pages in addition to the Category:Rush Songs. Maybe we can list those songs under "See Also" just to make sure that people know 100 percent that those articles are there. Deckiller 23:35, 12 December 2005 (UTC)

Tours[edit]

We had a complaint to WP:OTRS from te author of a book, claiming that the tour dates in these articles violated his copyright and impeded his ability to sell an updated version.

Although I am not really convinced that you can copyright a list of dates which is available on the back of every tour shirt sold, about half the articles had no content other than a fair use image of an album cover (per fair use can only be used in the article on the album) and an infobox, which qualifies for speedy deletion under WP:CSD#A1 (empty article); those that had dates lists were unformatted and unreferenced, in short there did not seem to be anything there actually worth having. I removed them from {{Rush}}. Please do not reintroduce these articles without sources, evidence the tours themselves have been subject of multiple non-trivial references in reliable secondary sources, proper attribution so we can ensure that copyright is not violated, and no album covers. Thanks, Guy (Help!) 22:39, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

That seems rather lame that tour dates can't be listed for a reason like copyright infringement. I'm sure if you went on one of the more reputable Rush websites, you can probably find a full list of dates and setlists without much effort. Dbm11085 20:46, 4 April 2007 (UTC)
I agree; how can the author of a book copyright a list of dates and locations? The lists of the tour dates are printed on the back of every Rush tour T shirt. It crazy that someone can 'claim' copyright for this. Dbalderzak (talk) 11:40, 21 November 2007 (UTC)

Video Releases[edit]

I just noticed that the template doesn't list the video releases by the band. I think that it's especially important to include, considering that the band has essentially tripled the number of their video releases in the last 5 years. I think a list of the videos (or even just the dvd's) is best placed between "Live Albums" and "Compilations". I'll set out to start this effort, given that the articles exist. If I run out of steam before I finish, I hope some of you can pick up where I have to leave off. Thanks. -- ManfrenjenStJohn 00:59, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Adding Jeff Jones[edit]

I'm adding Jeff Jones to members who used to be in Rush. Sittingonfence 01:23, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
