The Who - the amazing journey to FAC[edit]

@Dr. Blofeld:, @Retrohead:, @Curly Turkey:, @Dan56:, @SNUGGUMS: and anyone else I can think of .... it's time I gave The Who the big push to get it up to FA standard before they (allegedly) stop touring for good, and 2014 is the 50th anniversary of the classic line-up coming together. Peer review is at Wikipedia:Peer review/The Who/archive2 - dive in and pull the article to pieces. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 15:55, 20 August 2014 (UTC)


I have nominated John Mayer for a featured article review here. Please join the discussion on whether this article meets featured article criteria. Articles are typically reviewed for two weeks. If substantial concerns are not addressed during the review period, the article will be moved to the Featured Article Removal Candidates list for a further period, where editors may declare "Keep" or "Delist" the article's featured status. The instructions for the review process are here. Snuggums (talk / edits) 18:53, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

Article rescue?[edit]

I have an article that is in some desperate need for TLC and rescue, Wilderness Road (band). I'm finding where the band has been repeatedly mentioned in Billboard (ex, [1]) and where they've performed with notable bands ([2]) but so far it's slow going. It's up for PROD and it's run the full 7 days, so there's a good chance that this may be deleted but I'm willing to userfy this if anyone wants it. I just can't help but get the impression that there's more coverage out there. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 14:39, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

  • I've userfied it myself, so you can find it at User:Tokyogirl79/Wilderness Road (band). I really need some help from people that are familiar with how to look for sourcing that might not be available on the Internet. I'm really not good at doing that for music related things, so I could use all the help I can get with this. Tokyogirl79 (。◕‿◕。) 14:54, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
Your local library would have some material, it will have so-called finding aids that can help you. It seems the band played mostly around the Chicago area? If so, that city would probably be the first port of call. I can understand the PROD notice and it might be an idea to incorporate the band-page into a page for Warren Leming, who seems notable (I noticed one recent interview with him here)?Karst 16:21, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
  • I don't live in or near Chicago or in the state of Illinois, unfortunately, so I doubt that my local library will have anything to offer other than what I've found on the Internet. I've reached out to the fansite linked in the article, so hopefully they'll have something. I was thinking about a merge, as Leming does seem to be notable. I was just hoping that someone here would have better avenues for searching since I'm not a frequent editor of music related articles and I'm only familiar with the most mainstream of sourcing for the most part.
