When someone (a "Senior Editor III" no less - it does make you wonder sometimes) has the courtesy to explain why, within one minute of this article being set up, they saw the need to add tags to the article for tone, verifiability and neutrality, I'll respond. Until then, I'm waiting. Tum ti tum...... Ghmyrtle (talk) 22:07, 23 July 2010 (UTC)

I was doing new pages patrol; that's why the "within one minute". As to the rest: of the three sources, two are an autobiography and the subject's own website; nothing from the press or books. With regard to tone/NPOV: I've got an aversion to using a phrase like "powerful and soulful" in an article, most especially not in quotes, uncredited and in a lede. It's one reviewer's opinion, and seems to me inappropriate. Hope this makes things clearer. --Orange Mike | Talk 23:22, 23 July 2010 (UTC)
I've added refs, and clarified that the commentary is a verbatim quote from a reliable source. There are other sources, but they're offline and I don't have ready access to them at the moment. A (small) apology from me for being snarky last night - it's a bit disconcerting, at best, after spending an evening writing an article, to find it gets tags immediately slapped on it without, at the time, any explanation.Ghmyrtle (talk) 07:32, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
