Possibly useful ref re crowdfunding?
This article was published today (I have no connection, just a long-standing Marillion fan!)
The article not only hints that Marillion effectively invented crowdfunding, but that this will be one of their greatest legacies.
With that in mind, perhaps there should be a section of the article highlighting this important aspect of the band?

Does she really deserve the attention in this article? What's the point in including a sentence about a writer insulting a band's fans?
Also, I looked at the archives and it's funny to see somebody being torn down for comparing latter-day Marillion to Radiohead and Muse... Jules TH 16 (talk) 21:57, 23 March 2021 (UTC) 21:57, 23 March 2021 (UTC)
I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Marillion's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT⚡ 08:38, 9 January 2023 (UTC)
Original lead singer
Fish was not the original lead singer, Doug Irvine was. LeapUK (talk) 17:36, 15 April 2023 (UTC)
