What's up? Connorflanagan (talk) 22:32, 9 May 2008 (UTC)


I have never suggested that it doesn't. But for all the other missing television programmes I have been involved with writing articles about on Wikipedia, we have always used past tense, because they do not exist, and nobody has ever made an issue of it before.

The Quarrymen[edit]

Thanks for clearing that up about the champagne/cider thing. Us poor folks can only dream about a Guinness with champagne. :))--andreasegde (talk) 19:32, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Skiffle page[edit]

Hello! I'm curious as to why you reverted my small edit to the Skiffle page, to the Viper's version of Don't You Rock Me Daddy-O. I changed the text from "original version" to "earlier version" (I admit I was not signed in at the time). This was because my reading of the first text implied that the Viper's record was the original version of the song, which is not the case. I suggest 'earlier version' is more accurate.Bmbmjs (talk) 14:23, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

It is the original version of "Don't You Rock Me Daddy-O", Wally Whyton wrote it– based it on "Sail Away Ladies" Best, 650 Norton (1951) (talk) 14:58, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

To my ears, they are the same song - Wally may have a songwriting credit for the Vipers version but the song had already been recorded in a virtually identical state before he was born. I suppose we do have to go by songwriting credits though! Bmbmjs (talk) 15:27, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

Now that's very interesting indeed. Which version have you heard that is virtually identical, I'd love to know. Best. 650 Norton (1951) (talk) 16:28, 30 June 2008 (UTC)

I was thinking of Uncle Dave Macon's 1927 version, titled Sail Away Ladies, which has the same melody and chorus as the Vipers' and Lonnie's, differing only in the floating stanzas used to make up the verses. Bmbmjs (talk) 08:56, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for that-I only know it as a Bluegrass fiddle/banjo tune. I'll have to track down a copy and give it a listen! Best, 650 Norton (1951) (talk) 15:10, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

dylan's birth date[edit]

no it's not. the birth date in his id is may 11. you can check his id in the booklet of the bootleg series, vol. 1-3. unless he uses a fake id. i looked for the picture on the net but haven't found it. if i had a scanner i would have scanned the picture. but i can describe it to you, it's very simple: his opened id covering the whole picture and in the lower right corner of the picture a pack of Reyno cigarettes. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexadamalex (talkcontribs) 22:04, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

how did you see the birth certificate? and how do you know the birth certificate you saw is not a fake? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexadamalex (talkcontribs) 22:21, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

the The[edit]

If you agree the The should be uppercase, could you sign your name here? Thanks, --andreasegde (talk) 19:29, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

A different straw poll on Talk:The Beatles[edit]

It would be easy to overlook because there are now two polls going at the same time. The newest one is here. Thanks. Ward3001 (talk) 22:14, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Dylan page number[edit]

Hi 650 Norton (1951), forgive this trivial query but... you've just added p. 33 as the page of Sounes that specifies time & place of Dylan birth. But in my copy of Sounes (hardback, first edition, Doubleday, London, 2001) this info appears on p. 14. regards Mick gold (talk) 18:33, 6 September 2008 (UTC)

John Birch[edit]

Hi Norton, I'm puzzled about 'John Birch'. You've gone through The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan article removing the word 'paranoid' from the title. But when The Bootleg Series Volumes 1–3 (Rare & Unreleased) 1961–1991 was issued, the track is called "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues" and that is how John Bauldie's booklet describes its history. In Bob Dylan's book of collected lyrics and on his website, it's also [[1]] "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues" best wishes Mick gold (talk) 07:03, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes, I agree now I've looked at cover. Mick gold (talk) 16:32, 12 September 2008 (UTC)
