Official Members[edit]

Let's bear in mind that official members of Modern Talking are Thomas Anders, Dieter Bohlen and Eric Singleton. Therefore, we are to keep only these names.--Harout72 (talk) 00:45, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Please stop reverting my edits. You know they (you know who) worked with Modern Talking, so stop removing them of everywhere. --MisterWiki talk contribs 01:50, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I am going to ask you to be competent about this. Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz and Detlef Wiedeke among others are not official Modern Talking members, I have explained to you number of times that providing vocals on Modern Talking materials does not make them official members. Therefore, those names are not to appear on the template. --Harout72 (talk) 06:12, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

competent?? what are you after? Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz and Detlef Wiedeke are known to be the singers of Modern Talking, they are even credited on the second album. They are not members in the front but I'd recommend a Related musicians section.(E-Kartoffel (talk) 23:54, 11 February 2011 (UTC))

  • Note: They were never credited, they were only "thanked" in Let's Talk About Love for something unspecified, but never credited as vocalist. I reverted your change to the template. Diego Grez (talk) 17:16, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
E-Kartoffel, Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz and Detlef Wiedeke have never officially been considered as vocalist to Modern Talking, yes, they have been thanked on the second album, but there is no mention of any kind as to whether they have been thanked for producing vocals. We may see lot of musicians and record company personnel being thanked on the back of MT CDs, does that mean we have to include all those names in the related section?--Harout72 (talk) 17:46, 13 February 2011 (UTC)
Eric Singleton is not an official member, only a 1998 reunion guest appearance (!?), MT was always a duo, see front cover of that album. The singers have much more justification to be mentioned in the template as contributors as they sang on all the main productions, from the start. They even continued working with Bohlen in Blue System. But as you are posting here you know that, as it is common knowledge to anyone who bothers to start reading about Modern Talking history. The internet is full of that information.

I'm quite familiar with Modern Talking's history. While I agree that Singleton was not a permanent member of MT, it's worth putting him up there as one of the members as he was present during 95% of MT concerts as well as promotional performances. As for Rolf Köhler, Michael Scholz and Detlef Wiedeke who have supposedly produced vocals on MT recording throughout the years, they have never been officially regarded as part of the band and have only been present during their recording sessions; therefore, we are not to mention their names as members. By the way, E-Kartoffel, don't forget to sign after your messages.--Harout72 (talk) 22:40, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

Related Articles[edit]

Please do not promote cover bands here by sticking their names under the sub Modern Talking's related articles.--Harout72 (talk) 00:47, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

It is the only one famous cover band about Modern Talking. It have to stay here. --MisterWiki talk contribs 01:50, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

I have already explained to you once that cover bands of this kind that you keep mentioning do not play a significant role in order for us to link them in any way to the articles of Modern Talking. Also, the sources of the cover bands you seem to be fond of, are not reliable sources. --Harout72 (talk) 06:10, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

So what does Nora and Blue System do here?(E-Kartoffel (talk) 23:55, 11 February 2011 (UTC)).

  • Nora Balling is on the list for being the wife of Thomas Anders, but mostly because of her role in Modern Talking's break up of 1987. Blue System is listed because it was Bohlen's solo project. As Anders sang under his name and not under a "project name", he's not listed twice. Hope that clarifies the situation. :) --Diego Grez (talk) 01:00, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
