Moon Taught Starkey the Drums[edit]

The page has this item in it, "Starkey had been taught to play drums by Moon..." but in the article in Modern Drummer about Starkey, linked to on the page about Starkey, he is quoted as saying the two never sat down at a drum set together. Is it possible for someone to learn the drums from a person without ever sitting down at a set with them? As a musician myself, I don't think it is. In the Modern Drummer article Starkey is asked about Moon and he says Moon gave him the drum set and they talked a lot about drumming but it does not mention anything about being taught by Moon. I think that statement should be removed from this page.

Apparently Moon's biographer claims that Moon did teach Starkey but I think he is wrong and Starkey's word on the subject should be taken on this matter.

BTW - I thought I would discuss this before changing the page because I don't want to start an editing war over it.

The Who influenced bands such as Rush[1] and Red Hot Chili Peppers[2] and Kiss[3], also kurt cobain from nirvana said he liked the band [4]

Discussion about use of flatlist in infobox[edit]

There is currently a discussion at Template talk:Infobox musical artist about whether some infobox parameters should be assigned to the hlist class. All this would do is remove the inconvenience of having to use {{hlist}}/{{flatlist}} on all artist pages.--Ilovetopaint (talk) 15:19, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

Now Qwertyyiopoiuytrewq has changed it to 4x. I can never remember which is right and going back and checking the source every time is laborious. Which is it? Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 23:05, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
