Notability[edit]

The notability of Don Falcone is not clear from this article. The only contributions to this article come from anonymous IP addresses with no edits aside from this article; this leads one to believe that this is a vanity article. Combined with a lack of notability, this would make the article a candidate for deletion.

If no evidence of the notability of Don Falcone is added within the next week (by February 28, 2006), I will be nominating this article for deletion. The preceding unsigned comment was added by JerryOrr (talk • contribs) February 20, 2006.

Substantiation of Don Falcone article[edit]

All Music Guide entry[1]

Piero Scaruffi entry[2]

  • Neither of those links convince me of the notability of Don Falcone: see the music notability guidelines for a list of criteria. Don Falcone does not appear to meet any of them. I have listed Don Falcone for deletion --JerryOrr 04:12, 4 March 2006 (UTC)

[edit]

At the moment, this is an unsourced list of accomplishments and albums masquerading as an article about a person.

  • Part of the difficulty in discussing Falcone is that he has only recorded one track by his real name [3]. Part of his notability is with Spaceship Eyes, his alias. This is noted in an All Music Guide entry[4]. The All Music entry also notes his work with Thessalonians on Silent Records. Since then, Falcone is synonymous with his Spirits Burning project, which brings together many well-known (and lesser known) musicians. This is noted in his most recent interview, in Aural Innovations #34 (August 2006) [5].

One resource for info on Falcone's work in the 1990s and some of the 2000s is Piero Scaruffi, author of the History of Rock. He has written about some of Falcone's bands and interviewed him. Falcone's time with Thessalonians is documented at [6]. His time with Melting Euphoria is documented at [7]. His Spaceship Eyes project and the early years of his Spirits Burning project are covered at [8]. Scaruffi also interviewed Falcone [9].

The most recent release with Falcone was daevid allen and Don Falcone on Voiceprint. Some info on this CD is on the Voiceprint Records website [10]. There is also a link there to a review of the CD, which notes that the CD is actually by Spirits Burning.

I'm hoping that someone can use the above to resource this article, or suggest how to format it correctly, as described in Wikipedia:Citing sources [11]. The informant 06:08, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
