Fair use rationale for Image:Straight shooter.JPG[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Straight shooter.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

critical reception[edit]

this section is badly written, confusing as a result, and possibly inaccurate, esp. in ref to Christgau`s review. Fp cassini (talk) 14:57, 14 October 2012 (UTC)

                                                      *********

It's not just this section but the entire article that's poorly written. I am wondering if it was originally written in a different language and then put through some kind of web translation app because that is exactly how it reads. If I knew more about this band and this particular album I would rewrite the entire thing myself. The author's inattention to detail and logic is insulting to the reader. (talk) 9 June 2013

"Shooting Star" reference to Jim Morrison?[edit]

I know that the lyrics, "Johnny died one night/Died in his bed/Bottle of whiskey/Sleeping tablets by his head" may be a reference to the last hours of Jimi Hendrix (who was actually born "Johnny Allen Hendrix") in 1970 who may have accidentally overdosed on Vesparax sleeping tablets (he had complained of insomnia) within hours of consuming alcohol, but I think it should also be added that the title may come from a quote by Jim Morrison before he died/went MIA (depending on who you believe) being that "I see myself as a huge fiery comet, a shooting star. Everyone stops, points up and gasps 'Oh look at that!' Then — whoosh, and I'm gone... and they'll never see anything like it ever again... and they won't be able to forget me — ever."
