this needs citations all over the shop, or else it violates WP:NPOV to a ridiculous level --Kaini (talk) 02:30, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
This is true; but also reliable information —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 18:23, 21 April 2008 (UTC)
Who wrote this article, Colonel Abrams? I looked for a couple of sources that could validate the claim that his current singles are wildly popular but not on the charts and couldn't find anything. Its a ridiculous claim anyway. If a song is released by a record company and "wildly popular" its gonna be on what the industry considers the measurement of its popularity. Just strange... --Art8641 (talk) 14:32, 29 May 2008 (UTC)
The article appears to have improved slightly from the comments posted above, however it now states that Colonel Abrams is his real name and then that he was born John Thomas Wiener ! This article needs a re-write, incorporating reliable sources, or this sort of nonsense will persist.
Was Colonel truthfully his real name, or just a stage name? As the two so-called articles profess it to be, whilst his discography tells a completely different story. His name variations on Discogs for credits taken from the actual releases themselves sometimes state "Donald Abrams" (or for short, just "Don Abrams") in the small print on them: http://www.discogs.com/artist/66261-Colonel-Abrams – so it seems rather unlikely that his real name was actually Colonel, despite what some journo's might have in their articles (or even –if one was done– what they may have jokingly been told during an interview with the man himself; artists do like to sometimes spin the truth for whatever reason, usually in jest!).
