So he is gay, then? Do we have evidence of that? Salvar 05:10, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, If you go into Ricky Wilson's wiki page and the use the link marked as (1) Then it takes you to an article in which fred states that he and the other male band members were gay, But I have my doubts. In fact, (Except for cindy wilson) If you believed everything on these wikipedia pages you'd believe that 4 out of 5 of the members were gay or lesbian. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:26, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Fred states he and the others were gay, "but you have your doubts?" Why on earth would he lie? And why do you find it odd that the band, which was formed by friends, would be primarily gay? Gay people are known to congregate together once in a while, after all. (talk) 20:11, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Fred says he is gay on Howard Stern Show on 2/22/10 as logged here: He says that he came out of the closet to his mother while she was vacuuming, and she said "I know Freddie" and kept vacuuming. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:37, 23 February 2010 (UTC)

Space Ghost Coast to Coast[edit]

Last night I was watching Space Ghoast: Coast to Coast and he appeared on it. I think that should be mentioned in the article. 10:52, 7 October 2006 (UTC)

Family Guy reference[edit]

He is referenced in a Family Guy episode (Petergeist) in which TV host Tom Tucker "practices his Fred Schneider B-52's voice", saying "Now try to get some sleep out there" (the clip appears on youtube). Zchris87v 06:50, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

MTV heyday[edit]

"Monster" isnt listed. It was a bizarre video when MTV was young; stop motion, stobe lights, etc at a time when bands were just recorded singing. After Monster & similar videos by the Talking Heads, more creative videos came about. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:35, 11 May 2010 (UTC)


What's all this about a cowbell? Someone keeps putting he is a cencerro? What is a cencerro? And it states in his instruments section he plays cowbell, shouldn't that just be classed as percussion as i've seen him play other things? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:27, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
