Vandalism FYI[edit]

New Vandalism[edit]

There is blatant vandalism in Beck's info box. As well as at the absolute top of his page where it says "Beck is not an alternative singer" — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:21, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

This was reverted 24 hours ago, perhaps caching issues at your side. Materialscientist (talk) 02:22, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Still seeing it here, too. (talk) 10:43, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

From the first paragraph of "Early Life," the article's first section:

Bibbe's maternal grandmother was Jewish, while Bibbe's father, Al Hansen, was partly of Norwegian descent

Is this stated correctly? Was the Jewish woman "Bibbe's maternal grandmother" or, instead, "Bibbe's mother," i.e., Beck's maternal grandmother? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:54, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

"sonic genres"[edit]

What is a "palette of sonic genres" and why is he most known for it? This whole introduction sounds like something his publicists would write themselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:22, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
