Birth date[edit]

Was Clark not born in 1941 ?

Derek R Bullamore 17:28, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

No, because he was recruited into the New Christy Minstrels at the age of eighteen, in 1963, he increased his age by three years to enable him to perform in adult clubs. His birth date of 1944 is etched on his gravestone and was approved by his parents.

The article sadly degenerates as it expands. The "Legacy" section, however well meaning, is pure POV - therefore please, or deletion.

Your point is taken and the "Legacy" section has been deleted.

Lead section[edit]

The main article needs much work too but a lead summarising the whole article would be great, it surprising how many people just read the lead and move on. Sillyfolkboy (talk) 22:36, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

Mention of Grammy nomination for Clark[edit]

I've looked at the 2011 Grammy nominations, and the only thing I could find is that the "Where the Action Is" box set, covering the mid-60s L.A. scene and containing Clark's "Los Angeles," was nominated in the category of Best Historical Album. I'm removing the reference, since it does not seem notable in a biographical narrative of Clark's life and work. (talk) 22:37, 14 July 2011 (UTC)

Clark biography missing[edit]

there is a huge chunk of biography missing, probably due to an edit made on June 3, 2013. Everything prior to late solo career is missing — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:04, 20 June 2013 (UTC)

Personal Life[edit]

This whole section seems to have nothing at all to do with Clark. Perhaps someone tried editing several pages at once and made a mistake? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:13, 19 October 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up about this. I've removed the section and tidied up the relevant sections. Don't know how that went unnoticed for so long. --Kohoutek1138 (talk) 22:33, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
