Jason Ellis[edit]

According to Zac Garren, who posts on numerous forum boards, Jason left to focus on school and the band knew about his early departure all along, they just needed someone to fill in on bass. Now, this is probably completely true, but a credible source is needed, but does not exist. What can you do?Erasethepast (talk) 06:36, 8 May 2009 (UTC)

Current Revisions[edit]

Until a formal announcement by the band has been made, there will be NO more posting of the Jon/Eric situation. We agreed and discussed this months ago, so everyone who is new here, LEAVE THE TEXT ALONE ABOUT JON AND ERIC. Also, myspace.com is not a credible source to be posting new information regarding the band. No where in the myspace bulliten posted on Nov. 11 did the band say that the lyrics enclosed were new lyrics, or ever they're lyrics. So do not post about that. The last issue concerned is the 4th album. The band has NOT stated anywhere that they have started recording. They are out on tour for christs sake! Leave it alone! Spreading false and inaccurate information is not what wikipedia.org is about, and is not encouraged or permitted here either. Erasethepast (talk) 06:21, 13 November 2008 (UTC)


Line up Change[edit]

Can somebody cite the whole line up change situation? Zeropunk16 (talk) 18:26, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Where the hell did this come from? "Jon Mess and Eric Lodge have recently stated they quit the band due to tensions being built and the changes made for the direction of the music." Can someone cite that or at least acknowledge how they got this information? Erasethepast (talk) 19:23, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

i received that information directly from Jon, Eric and Jonny Craig. i talked to them on myspace and thats exactly the statement i received. since Jon and Eric are not in any current band or wont be in a band anytime soon, there is no wideview blog for them to explain this. myspace isnt a reliable source hence their blog won't be trusted by the wikipedia community. they dont have a website either. i stated what they had said to me and thats all that you will hear from them unless they make a video on youtube. jonny was the first person to find out about this directly from jon and eric so asking him on myspace.com/jonnysingstoyou is helpful —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thisisyourwayout (talkcontribs) 19:58, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Not verifiable. - Mdsummermsw (talk) 12:24, 11 August 2008 (UTC)

I know its not verifiable, im just making the point to the kid above me. You wont hear ANYTHING about/from Jon or Eric unless u message them on myspace (and get lucky if they write back), or if you message jonny craig which he writes back for certain. This is for the people who want to know what REALLY happened. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Thisisyourwayout (talkcontribs) 03:44, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

No, this is for discussing improvements to the article. Internet forums are for discussing what you think happened. - Mdsummermsw (talk) 16:19, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Note the headline "Lineup Change", no improvements will be made on Jon and Eric quitting to the article. They won't make any public announcements. Georgiamode01 (talk) 15:42, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Protected?[edit]

It would be nice to get this page protected against edits by non-established users. For some reason it sees a lot of vandalism. Davidovic 12:26, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Jonny Craig back in band?[edit]

CREDIBLE source on this? ~Ambrosia- talk 01:32, 22 August 2010 (UTC)

Jazz Fusion?[edit]

Umm, since when were they Jazz? If anything, a bit of funk, but Jazz? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.182.212.230 (talk) 04:15, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Haha, yeah, they use a lot of jazz chords but that's not enough to call them jazz fusion, but you know, there is this DGD funk-meets-prog-meets-fusion-but-is-not-one-or-another, so sometimes people change the genre on the wikipedia to prog rock or psychedelic rock. We must do something about it. Suggestions? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.239.185.234 (talk) 06:12, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Sean O'Sullivan Urination Incident[edit]

http://www.unratedmagazine.com/Document.cfm?Page=Articles/index.cfm&Article_ID=510 if anyone wants to cite it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.17.2.39 (talk) 19:02, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Acceptance Speech Article?[edit]

Is there a reason why the article for Acceptance Speech was removed and is now a redirect to the main article? It seems to me that there is more than enough information available on the album to warrant an entire article, as there is with all the band's other albums. Also, there are still links throughout the article to the Acceptance Speech article, which now simply redirects people back to the article they are already on. Seems we need to make up our minds... does Acceptance Speech deserve an article or not? Beachdude42 03:44, 14 October 2013 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Beachdude42 (talkcontribs)

It definitely deserves its own article. The guy who was flagging it for deletion finally backed off, now there's just a source flag. He had a point that, according to the wiki guidelines, notability is not inherited just because the band's previous albums all have pages, but personally i think that's really more to avoid articles for things like small EPs or generic releases like "iTunes Sessions" kinda things. Even bands I don't like deserve to have their albums have pages if they're notable. Either way, the article should be good now. Mrkite6270 (talk) 22:15, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Timeline[edit]

Please do not remove members from the timeline if you do not know what you are doing. Someone recently removed all the touring members, which is understandable as there are a lot of them, however they did so without realizing that they were also removing some official members who are listed as also serving as touring members before/after their official tenure with DGD. If you don't know that Kurt Travis was an official member of DGD, you have no business editing the timeline. For the purposes of the timeline, any official members (i.e. Kurt Travis, Josh Benton) who fall into this category of having been both official and touring members should simply be represented on the timeline in the standard way during any periods they served as members, official or otherwise; adding a bar to designate them as touring members will not be necessary, as any member who has ONLY served as a touring member will not show up on the timeline at all.Mrkite6270 (talk) 04:22, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

History issues?[edit]

I don't know what's going on or who keeps removing almost half the Acceptance Speech article on the bands history page, but it would be nice if users/administrators would stop removing almost all of the pages and history notes from this even if we actually do have actual sources from official websites or the band themselves.
