Mark Rose is the front man for Chicago based rock band Spitalfield signed to Victory Records. Spitalfield have sold well over 100,000 albums world-wide to date. Mark Rose also writes and records music seperate from the group and has his own music available for stream and download on such sites as iTunes, Myspace & Purevolume.

Spitalfield is calling it quits at the end of 2007, and there will be more and more interest in what the band members are doing next. As the main songwriter for the group, Mark Rose will press forward with new endeavors and will have a high interest rate amongst the bands' fans and new listeners alike. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 08:35, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Ok. So what? You show nothing notable above and beyond his membership of a defunct band. You show no records released (if there is music available, list it (but myspace really isn't a good example as any muppet can pretend to be a singer on there), no 3rd party articles (something from the music press would be a start), you include "fun facts" when trivia is not encouraged on wikipedia, and you list influences with no citations or links to back it up. Please read WP:Note on what makes someone notable. Your article simply doesn't prove it. I'll remove the speedy delete, and switch it to a prod, which gives you a few days to back up your claims. --Blowdart 08:47, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

You can search both Spitalfield and Mark Rose on to see there are national dates scheduled. Also, Spitalfield has over 1.3 million plays on myspace and Mark has close to 50,000 on his personal page (

Ok so; put the photo in the template (there's room for it), classify him using categories, offer proof of his studies, look at WP:Cite in order to see how to cite "properly" rather than just shove links at the end and you're done *grin* --Blowdart 12:13, 3 October 2007 (UTC)

Hey- I am looking into all of the things you mentioned. Is there any way you could brief me on how to classify using the categories? Thanks. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:50, 5 October 2007 (UTC)
