The Walrus his nickname[edit]

Infobox update needed?[edit]

In the Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison articles the infobox is "Infobox musical artist", but in the John Lennon article it is the so called "Infobox person"... why is that ? I wanted to add the lines "spouse" and "children" to the infobox in the Ringo Starr article... and it simply didn't work. What must be done? to update the John Lennon article by replacing the infobox? to update the "Infobox musical artist" by adding "children" and "spouse" lines?

Please add a reference to Jihadi John in the hatnote, as that individual has also been called "John the Beatle". 209.211.131.181 (talk) 17:36, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done: I think this is WP:UNDUE on this article. The Lennon reference does not seem to be an intricate aspect of this terrorist's identity, the hostages just came up with the idea due to the accents of that particular cell and arbitrarily assigned names to members. If Jihadi John had been shown to have some sort of meaningful connection to the Beatles or Lennon (e.g. it was found that he had some sort of manifesto explaining that Yellow Submarine inspired him to become a terrorist), it would be another story, but I do not think this connection is worth mentioning on this article Cannolis (talk) 17:55, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
