Article Length[edit]

The current status of the article (stub) is that it needs a lot of working on. The quality of the information seems to be fairly high, but the lack of information hurts it some.

I am making this page my first project as a member of Wikipedia. I encourage you all to do the same.

you're right about the length, we need to fill it with all kinds of stuff that will make it long er then a stub. Like a list of every album he's ever releaed!

--Onlyinsi 18:52, 27 October 2005 (UTC)

That would be a nice addition!

Quotes[edit]

Come on. Those quotes from King of the Hill are utterly gratuitious and irrelevant. They were most likely written by the show's scriptwriters, not Mangione himself, and they're neither witty, insightful, or even funny.

They don't belong in a biographical article, or at least this one as it stands. If those quotes belong, then perhaps the lead sentence should say "Chuck Mangione is a character in King of the Hill, who also happens to be a real-life flugelhorn player." -- Paul Richter 20:20, 26 November 2005 (UTC)

You could create a Wikiquote article about Chuck Mangione... Political Mind 00:10, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Biography rating[edit]

that thing about Biography saying his tune is the most recognizable since "Michelle" - well, that was from the 1980 edition, just a couple years after the song was released... it surely has faded a bit in significance since... so perhaps the addition of the words "in 1980" before that part would put it in a more proper perspective?

It already says that. silsor 06:18, 30 November 2005 (UTC)

current band?[edit]

Is this really his current touring band? The offered reference just says they played at that venue together--not that they're touring or recording together. -- Mikeblas (talk) 19:30, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Ties to Continental 3407 crash[edit]

There is currently speculation that members of the Chuck Mangione band were aboard Continental Flight 3407 which crashed in Clarence Center near Buffalo yesterday. A concert scheduled for today with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra has been postponed.

Pronunciation[edit]

Obviously whoever wrote this article is a hick who likes this guy (because only hicks do, as I found out from King of the Hill) and therefore does not know how to read or write IPA. The only pronunciation that ought to be given in an encyclopedia is an IPA pronunciation. Therefore I am changing it to IPA and if you can't read it that's your problem. This is an encyclopedia, which means we're not supposed to take into account the fact that people are uneducated and cannot read IPA. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.233.36.143 (talk) 19:13, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for adding the IPA pronunciation, although your comment about "hicks" was unnecessary, and I hope you realize that judging someone based on a semi-fictional cartoon characterization is not the smartest thing to do. –BMRR (talk) 20:44, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Discography?[edit]

Okay one question here, no discography on Chuck's albums and singles? I have written music reviews on some of his albums and could help out MAKING a discography if someone would like to do this with me. 50.36.29.201 (talk) 07:40, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Breaks my heart that people would add the "king of the hill" template, but cant be bothered to type in a few album titles. yes, musicians need discographies in their articles, before most other data is added. I do this myself at some point.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 03:19, 4 August 2012 (UTC)


Relatives[edit]

This section contains no references. Also this reference is vague:

Later, and into this decade

When was this written? The reader won't know. Need to provide more specificity. Dates. Ileanadu (talk) 01:25, 9 October 2015 (UTC)
