Daughter[edit]

Nicholas Ashford and Valerie Simpson had a daughter named Nicole, you never see or read anything about her. What is she doing.

On finding two good third party references for their daughter, I added this fact (with the references, of course) to the article. Coyets (talk) 11:28, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Amy Winehouse[edit]

they are also credited for Amy Winehouse- Tears Dry On Their Own —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.154.199.205 (talk) 21:59, 2 October 2007 (UTC)

No, the music in the background included sampling of an A&S song.76.232.10.199 (talk) 07:24, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

The Amy Winehouse recording was a new performance, not a sample. The arrangement followed the original Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell version very closely, but was in a different key.

The musicians in the Winehouse version are listed in this link; Ashford and Simpson are credited as co-writers. http://www.discogs.com/Amy-Winehouse-Tears-Dry-On-Their-Own/release/1044112

Split into 3 articles[edit]

I won't be doing this myself, but i think that each performer should have their own article, and this article be about the duo. Jerry Leiber of Leiber & Stoller also passed away today, and the same splitting should apply there, IMHO.(mercurywoodrose)76.232.10.199 (talk) 07:34, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Well, the question is, since they apparently wrote as a duo, and mostly performed as a duo, and (from what I can glean from the article and news of his death) are famous as a duo, have either of them done enough solo to be notable on their own? Or, put another way, is there enough info for 2 separate articles that wouldn't just duplicate 85% of what's already here? Aldaryx (talk) 11:03, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Additional citations[edit]

Why and where does this article need additional citations for verification? What references does it need and how should they be added? Hyacinth (talk) 03:14, 25 May 2012 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Ashford & Simpson[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Ashford & Simpson's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "can":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 08:14, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Why should their individual pages redirect to here?[edit]

This page should be focused on their career as a musical duo, while their personal page is about their individual career and life. It's no different to having a page for both Radiohead and Thom Yorke. Simpson has continued to write after Ashford's death, where is all this meant to go? It can't be under Ashford & Simpson.
