Not Petty article[edit]

I have been asked to explain why I deleted certain information on the heartbreakers article. This was because it was information on Petty,s solo records. This is a band article and not intended for a tom petty article. --Feeling free (talk) 00:08, 11 October 2008 (UTC)Feeling Free

While the article is not about Petty by himself, a single sentance describing occassional side projects and works by other members of the band does not, IMHO, detract from the overall article, but it DOES help to provide context for how the band has worked together over time, especially since all of Tom Petty's "solo records" have featured some considerable contribution from the all of the other members of the Heartbreakers. If these albums had been recorded entirely independent of the rest of the band, then that would be one thing. Especially on Full Moon Fever, the decision to release the album as a "solo" record did not occur until late in the recording process, mainly based on the "sound" of the songs more than the amount of contributions from the individual Heartbreakers. While I would agree that we should not include tons of detail on these solo projects, it does not seem to be out of place to simply place their occurance within the chronology of the band. 00:45, 11 October 2008(UTC)
I see where your coming from. perhaps we should include a brief section on stuff members did without the heartbreakers --Feeling free (talk) 01:00, 11 October 2008 (UTC)User:Feeling free
That would be a cool idea. Perhaps a section titled "Band members other projects" or 19:53, 11 October 2008 (UTC)
Yeah that would be a good title. i like that. --Feeling free (talk) 20:13, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Band name spelling[edit]

It seems there's a bit of confusion about how to write the name of the band. Some use 'and' and some use '&'. So now I'm wondering which is the correct one. :-) -- (talk) 03:59, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

Timeline graph[edit]

I would like to see where consensus lies on the inclusion of the graph. This article has done fine without one, I oppose the inclusion. Mlpearc (open channel) 00:51, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Oppose inclusion. Pointless duplication of information already in the article. Piriczki (talk) 15:07, 12 November 2015 (UTC)
