Insufficient Incomplete Information
There is a lot of information missing on this Gino Vanelli page. He was innovative and ahead of his time with his use of sythesizers. The facts on the page are very dry and not well conveyed. It doesn't go into any info on who he studied with as a singer, how he really got into music, etc. Anyone is welcome to add more pertinent info. I believe the section on the Boston Celtics is totally ridiculous and unnecessary. Gino Vanelli has been reduced to some mascot of a basketball team and that's truly groping for anything that puts the guy on the map.
Here are some ideas of what is needed to fill in the gaps:
Who did Gino date, and marry? Does he have children, is he a father? Who are his main influences? Are then any direct quotes that can be used to enhance this article?
This article reflects dry, boring facts that doesn't reflect on the artist's life.
Worth mentioning "I Just Wanna Stop" was written by his brother, Joe (according to liner notes I've seen, at least...)? Trekphiler 23:13, 5 January 2006 (UTC)
Chart Peak Positions
I'm going to try and go through the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and see how many of these I can nail down. Someone is going to have to find the other two categories, as I am mostly busy with WP:USRD and WP:CASH articles. (I'm doing this little bit because Gino is one of my all-time favs!)

- Eight so far, I need some sleep! I've bookmarked everything so I can pick this up again manyana. (All listed peaks are source-verifiable at www.billboard.com. It takes a bit of searching, but they're there!) Edit Centric (talk) 11:14, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
When we are adding source citations, it's important that we're citing reliable third-party sites and articles. I removed all references that cited the Tripod fansite, as fansites are not considered adequate under WP:NPOV. Each instance needs sourced to a news article or location website, such as if the Flamingo Club had it's own site... Edit Centric (talk) 19:27, 10 December 2007 (UTC)
