Jim Guyette played bass in one of the later touring Quicksilver lineups (am trying to find out exactly when). I added his name to the Past members section but someone deleted it. Why?
- Guyette doesn't appear in the detailed list of band line-ups, further down the page, and you have admitted you are "trying to find out exactly when".
I didn't remove it, so I'm just guessing, but as all material in Wikipedia should be referenced from a reliable source, whoever removed it possibly looked for a reference, couldn't find one, and removed it in accordance with Wikipedia policies. The simple rule is find your reliable source before adding information, so you can cite it. Unless you can come up with a source for Guyette, he is likely to be removed again. very shortly.

Was the complete removal of almost (if not all) wiki-links from this article realy neccesary? This article is in a very bad condition; it looks like a badly-written fan site, and lacks NPOV and even wikilinks.
I've done a fair bit of re-editing on this article and added more info and inline references. I'll try and expand this as time permits, and would be grateful for any feedback. Dunks (talk) 10:50, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Nicky Hopkins leaves the band in two places in this article. Also, Reyes is mentioned as replacing Hopkins, but does not appear in the later list of band members. GeneCallahan (talk) 20:06, 27 April 2009 (UTC)
Jam bands category?
Quicksilver Messenger Service was around decades before the modern day term "jam band" was coined so why are they in this category? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:47, 27 May 2011 (UTC) Does it matter that they were around before the term? They still exist today, at least in name. By the way, Dino Valenti in this article is called Valente for half of it. I don't get why, it can't be a dozen plus typos, so why?184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:53, 6 June 2011 (UTC) For what it may be worth, the argument for including Quicksilver as a "Jam band" rests on the idea that the "Jam band" category evolved out of the (San Francisco Bay Area) Psychedelic Rock category of music, and Quicksilver was certainly a part of the original (late 1960's) definition of Psychecdelic Rock.

"Overdubs " on Happy Trails
I have altered the sentence in the article which reads: "According to David Freiberg, at least one of the live tracks was augmented with studio overdubs and the tracks "Calvary" and "Lady of the Cancer Moon" were recorded in the studio just before Gary Duncan left the band."
I did an extensive revsion of the article "Happy_Trails_(album)" some time ago and I have listened to the original live sessions that were once available on the net. "Lady (sic) of the Cancer Moon" is indeed the same on the album and on the live recording. "Mona" has a comment "This here next one's rock and roll" that was added in the studio at the beginning of side 2 of the album, which is trivial. "Calvary", on the album, is completely different than the live version. Some studio effects were performed on the crowd "performance" part of the "Who Do You Love Suite" to reduce the volume of some shout-outs and eliminate feedback on Duncan's remark about "trying to stand still," and Duncan's solo is missing a minute or so in the middle, perhaps because the whole suite had to be fit on a vinyl side. There's no source for Freiberg's quote; I have taken out the reference to him. The sentence could be removed entirely with no real loss. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 19:57, 11 December 2013 (UTC) Eric
Apple Records Richard diLello Sundance Kid
So which QMS member is "the Sundance Kid" mentioned in DiLello's 'The Longest Cocktail Party' ? Or was he just another of the stream of phonies and bums and freaks that turned up at Apple Records? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:25, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
