David Peel edits[edit]

David, you're not going to get anywhere behaving like a bull in a china shop. You may indeed be David Peel, but this is wikipedia and you do not own your own article. Can I suggest you check out, amongst other things, WP:COI, WP:POV and WP:SPAM. Bottom line: this site is not for promotion, and the tone of the text you are trying to add is -- from a quick glance -- quite inappropriate. Happy to talk to you more about it all if you wish, but I think you could get your head around what will go and what will not, if you take a little time. --Tagishsimon (talk) 13:06, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

RE: ==David Peel edits==

This wiki page is missing A LOT OF INFO. Maybe someone else who is better at wiki can do it over a bit. David Peel was a HUGE PART of the NYC hippie / yippie scene, a big part of John Lennon's life, a HUGE INFLUENCE on music as we know it. Here are a couple of linkd that were written by David... with A LOT of the missing info in this wiki page:

In addition to reading the links cited above by Tagishsimon, you also need to stop shouting (all caps). There's no need for it. This is not a chat room or a forum. It's a page for improving an encyclopedia. Ward3001 (talk) 17:33, 18 December 2008 (UTC)

Please add the info you know to the article in order to help expand it, and then everyone can help edit it. You probably know more information than we do. (talk) 08:25, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Davidpeelthelowereathepopesmok.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Davidpeelthelowereathepopesmok.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Army records?[edit]

According to several of his friends I've talked to over facebook, David Peel was actually in the US Army before he became a hippie. I've been unsuccessful in finding any records to attest to this, though. Anyone have any leads or ideas? His real name was David Rosario, and he died in a VA hospital, so I don't doubt the truth of the claims, but I'd like to cite a better source than, e.g., a web article from a site called "celebstoner" or a facebook conversation with his friends, before I add anything to the article.
