Jimi Hendrix[edit]

This is now among the best of the rock music bios and, I think, a model for biographies of any sort. Jgm 00:07, 18 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • Object I've only skimmed the article, but inline citations are now required. The quotations section should go; all those quotes should be at the linked Wikiquote page, and those that are really important (if any) should be incorporated into the prose. - The Catfish 02:47, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object per Catfish, he said it all. Staxringold 03:13, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object. per Catfish. The depth of the article is impressive, however. Could easily be an FA with some added care and attention. RyanGerbil10 03:18, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object per Catfish. Also needs proofreading ("its" vs. "it's," "had accepted to promote," etc.). Lots of sentences are poorly written, e.g., "She later noticed his face on a record store album cover and began courting him during his Stockholm concerts (January 1968 and January 1969), leaving him love notes and flowers backstage, which Jimi would oblige by taking her along with him on his post-concert social engagements, the latter of which ended in an overnight stay at the Hotel Carlton." In terms of content and depth, this is very close to being an FA, and people have obviously worked very hard on it, but it needs more work.--Bcrowell 04:36, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object I added inline citations to the article, but 5 inline citations for a 63kb article seems far from enough. Also needs copyediting, per Bcrowell. AndyZ 13:31, 9 March 2006 (UTC)
  • Object Any artist whose inspiration began with Elvis and ended with Wagner deserves more inspiration -and perspiration- than this article reflects. Bordering somewhere between the portentous and the puerile ("there was something in his playing truly his own"), within its own borders no better illustration of the limitations of both Rock and Roll and Wikipedia (jammed knowledge?) can be found. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.68.196.6 (talkcontribs) .
