The Hamsters

Hi, thanks for not reverting the changes. I've removed Slim and Otis' real names on their request. Andy doesn't have any objection to his being used which is why he has his own article and the others don't. I've done so per WP:BLP#People who are relatively unknown. Actually, on this matter I'm on your side and I've tried to persuade them to let me write up more on them but they are intensely private people, especially Slim. He didn't even want me to create a Hamsters article, but as it wasn't me who did so I got away with that one :) --WebHamster 21:33, 12 December 2007 (UTC)

Dr. Feelgood

Thanks for adding the album covers to the articles - I hope the 'deletist police' do not try to remove them ! Regards,Derek R Bullamore (talk) 11:39, 29 October 2008 (UTC)

P.S. I did not realise, until recently, that the alternative vinyl colours of white and brown were meant to represent milk and alcohol. Fine song though.

  • I wasn't sure how the alternative vinyl colours fit into the Milk and Alcohol article, so I removed it. Please add it back in. Also, if you plan on seeing the band, take many photos since you can release them as free content to Wikipedia. It would be nice to have a photo of the Dr. Feelgood band while they play Milk and Alcohol to be used in the Milk and Alcohol article. Some info on what the lyrics of Milk and Alcohol are supposed to mean would help, too. -- Suntag 21:31, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
  • The lyrics say "They got him". Who is the "him" the song refers to? Also, what city did they get him and was he arrested and/or given a ticket? If so, I should be able to find the arrest report/ticket to give more info for the article. When you see the band, ask them when/where did they see John Lee Hooker that served the basis for the lyrics. -- Suntag 14:15, 30 October 2008 (UTC)
  • Thanks for note on my page. The cover image in the article looks like a single. I found it merely by doing a google image search for Milk and Alcohol. I don't know if the image is correct since I never heard of Dr. Feelgood before yesterday. Please feel free to replace the image cover with something more appropriate. If the alcohol was Kahlúa, that in itself taste like it has milk in it since it is a cream. Toasted Almond, White Russian, and Brown cow are/were popular Kahlúa/milk drinks. Also see Kahlúa/milk search. I didn't know there was a book on Dr. Feelgood. Using information from the book, you add to the Milk and Alcohol article. Also, you can bring the Dr. Feelgood article to FA status. You can find a copy of the book at a library using worldcat.org. -- Suntag 14:04, 30 October 2008 (UTC)

DYK for Milk and Alcohol

Updated DYK query On 4 November, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Milk and Alcohol, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Dr. Feelgood - again !

I received the following e-mail from Jose (whom I do not know at all), which you may find interesting.

My name is Jose, I write for a website called alterna2.com about concerts in Barcelona. Recently I attended Dr. Feelgood and I took some pictures.

The Dr. Feelgood article in the Wikipedia was very useful to write the review of the gig. We published all our content under the creative commons license, including the photos. So I through that maybe you find useful some of the photos I took of the band, you can find them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alterna2/sets/72157615558781757/

I like this one: http://www.flickr.com/photos/alterna2/3369126564/in/set-72157615558781757/

Best regards

Jose Cornide Coordinador de redactores E-mail: jose@alterna2.com http://www.alterna2.com

I think some of the images are decent enough to add to the Feelgood article; but I am no expert, and am rather relying on you to execute same - if you think they will escape the Wiki deletionists. I'm more than happy enough to thank said Jose profusely for his kind efforts. However, the eternal sceptic in me says - 'Is this too good to be true' ?!

Derek
At first glance, the creative commons licence looks good - but I cannot sort out until tomorrow Arjayay (talk) 09:00, 23 March 2009 (UTC)
Have uploaded 2 pictures - hope I got the right proceedure - it's different when loading from Flikr.
Please feel free to re-arrange (I've kept the old picture as a hidden comment so it can be reinstated if these are removed)
Unfortunately the Steve Walwyn shot is only 149 pixels wide, so I can't balance the width of Robert Kane's shot
The overall band picture is a bit dark, but I may try it above the info-box - if I haven't had my wrists slapped in the next day or so
Arjayay (talk) 19:05, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Yes - well done indeed. Let's wait for the deletion squad then. Many thanks,
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 19:39, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Further message from Jose - Thank you very much. We're very glad to contribute to Wikipedia in any way, we did it in the past and we will do it in the future if we are able to. Wikipedia it's one of the best things (if not the best) in the Internet :) I contacted you because you have your email in your user page, is there any way to contact people who don't? I'm not a wikipedia user. And one more thing, can you change the source of the pictures to our website [[1]] insted of flickr and the author from "alterna2" to "José Cornide"? Thank you!
With the deletion squad seemingly in slumber, and my aversion to images, could/can you oblige re 'source' and 'author' ?! Thanks, again
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 01:01, 11 April 2009 (UTC)

The Bachelors

Good work on the above article. I prefer not to edit any more (see talkpage for the reasons). Unfortunately, somebody from one of the camps will come along and undo your good work. Perhaps you would still like to have a quick look at the external links and add John Stoke's version as a matter of impartiality - as there is a link for one side's version of events, both should really be there. It must have been vandalised out at some point. --Richhoncho (talk) 18:24, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I realise this is a minefield
Ironically, my attention was drawn by an album position in the "Asda Value Chart" - not a chart normally recognised in WP.
I then noted that, nowhere in the article, did it say the original band had split up, so added the Allmusic "messy split" quote.
This left the article in limbo - what happened after the split? so I added the band names after the split.
I have now given both "official" web-sites, and links to both versions of the split and aftermath, without giving any comment thereon, so people can draw their own conclusions. IMO the article is evenly balanced, but I am sure one side, (hopefully both sides) will feel it is biased.
Arjayay (talk) 08:19, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Not sure you really care, but the ASDA chart was added by one of the principals, the "messy" was still messy at WP with disparagement to boot, anonymous IP deleted the whole "split" thing and I decided if it wasn't going to verifiable it was probably the best place for it. Oh well, it's on my watch list...--Richhoncho (talk) 09:59, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

Ronnie Scott

Me - again. Do you have any information (with your Man cap firmly on your head) for said Mr. Scott, particularly (or otherwise) in conjunction with Marty Wilde ? The whole Frere Manston and Jack Gellar pseudonym has me vaguely intrigued. Is Ronnie Scott still alive ? How / why did he link up with Mr. Wilde ? I know this may lead nowhere, but the Marty Wilde article has, somewhat naturally, a link to the 'other' Ronnie Scott. Actually, this may well be of my own making - but with Man, The Casuals, Status Quo and Wilde in the mix; what about Wolsey (sometimes part songwriting credit for "Ice in the Sun"), Or even, "Abergavenny" ?

So they write "Jesamine" or "When Jesamine Goes"; "Abergavenny"; and "Ice in the Sun" all in 1968 and say goodbye ? Not massive globally selling block busters, but all three sizable successes. I may be pissing in the wind here, but it might be worth a punt ?!

Best wishes.

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 23:00, 31 August 2009 (UTC)

Information on the Bystanders is thin on the ground. Most written material is by Deke Leonard, who joined the band just as it changed its name to Man, so has relatively little to say about what happened before.
According to the sleevenotes by Nigel Lees to Shapes and Sounds 2 - Shades of Deepest Purple from the BBC Archives 1967-1971 (Top Sounds TSSCD 003 (2008)) The Bystanders joined the George Cooper Agency "during the first half of 1966" and their fourth single "Royal Blue Summer Sunshine Day" "was penned by Ronnie Scott, not the famous jazz man, but a friend of Marty Wilde who worked for the Bystanders as their sort of liaison with the George Cooper Agency. Scott got them a lot of their BBC work and also wrote songs which the band occasionally recorded, both for their own releases and as demos intended for others."
Shades of Deepest Purple includes a Brian Matthews interview with Clive John of the Bystanders, who describes Ronnie Scott as "our manager".
The name "Wolsey" doesn't mean anything to me, but may be another pseudonym?
I'll see if I can dig anything else out
--Arjayay (talk) 08:26, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Another link is that George Cooper, became the Bystanders Manager in 1965 - having "handled major British pre-Beatles rock singers Joe Brown and Marty Wilde" Allmusic biography of The Bystanders, by Richie Unterberger
--Arjayay (talk) 08:37, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Wilde and Scott also wrote the words & music to "No Trams to Lime Street" an Alun Owen play, broadcast as the Wednesday play on 18 March 1970. Scott is described as "a young music publisher named Ronnie Scott. (No - not the Ronnie Scott)." [2] So the partnership obviously continued after 1968.
--Arjayay (talk) 12:57, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Another link appears to be John Schroeder
With regard to "Jesamine" Shades of Deepest Purple points out that the Casuals version "had the advantage of having the original to use as a blueprint, the production team at Decca proceeded to follow John Schroeder's arrangement ..."
Schroeder had signed the Bystanders to Pye, produced their singles and also produced Man's first 2 albums Revelation and 2 Ozs of Plastic with a Hole in the Middle
By mid 1969 Man's main income was "Ronnie Scott's demo sessions in RG Jones, Morden; they were doing three a week. At the time Ronnie was involved in discussions with Status Quo. They were unhappy ... ...Could Ronnie come up with anything?" Ronnie found the song "Down the Dustpipe" for which Man did the demo. "Status Quo liked the song and a meeting was arranged at RG Jones to teach them the arrangement." (Deke Leonard - Rhinos, Winos & Lunatics: The legend of Man a rock'n'roll band - Northdown Publishing Ltd - 1996 - Page 18) Quo recorded it with John Schroeder producing, as he had for "Ice in the Sun".
I am unclear exactly when Ronnie Scott stopped managing Man, but at David Most's suggestion, Barry Marshall took over about this time. (It may be pure coincidence, but David's brother Micky had produced Lulu's "I'm a Tiger")
--Arjayay (talk) 16:13, 1 September 2009 (UTC)
Lots of (most?) sites confuse the songwriting Ronnie Scott with the jazz saxophonist & club owner, but several sites e.g. [3] also credit the songwriting Ronnie Scott with "Lost in France" and "It's a Heartache", both co-written with Steve Wolfe. AllMusic list most early Bonnie Tyler songs as being by Scott & Wolfe [4] - No idea if that is the same RS - but Bonnie Tyler, The Bystanders and Man are all Welsh (sound of grabbed at straws slipping through fingers!)
--Arjayay (talk) 16:32, 7 September 2009 (UTC)

Wow, what a lot of research - for which I am both grateful and impressed ! Sorry for the delay in replying. A combination of a bout of sickness and watching cricket at Trent Bridge (no connection between the two - apart from me) has left me elsewhere recently. I am not too sure how to use the information you have proffered. An article on said Ronnie seems logical, but I bet it may be hard to find enough sources / details. At least it might help clear up the understandable confusion between the two namesakes. Thanks again,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 14:32, 12 September 2009 (UTC)

I think an article on "Ronnie Scott (songwriter)", or however it is titled, is a good idea. It gives something to point and link to, rather than just pointing away from the jazzman Ronnie Scott.
It would inevitably be a stub, but if we take[5] to be correct, (and WP:Verify requires verification, not truth) then there are 18 Bonnie Tyler related articles referring to Scott & Wolfe, plus the earlier singles with Marty Wilde - should be at least 25 internal links, so it is nowhere near "orphan" status, making it much easier to argue for.
It would be nice to know if he is still alive, and whether he wrote the music, or the lyrics, or collaborated on both - but that is the purpose of stubs - state what you know, and let others contribute what they know. Question is - who's going to start it?
--Arjayay (talk) 07:55, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Have started a draft at User:Arjayay/Ronnie Scott (songwriter) but it is very rough and unfinished.

Slade

Probably outside of your interest zone, but I am starting to try to beef up the Wiki article. No great effort needed to improve it slightly, as it was without a single reference. Anyhow, if the subject matter does not greatly upset your sensibilities, all help is appreciated. Best wishes,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 16:18, 3 November 2009 (UTC)

Man

I happened to blunder across this article (via The Bystanders), which I remembered you have worked hard on, and noticed that there seems to be regular usage of first rather than surnames throughout. I thought it only fair to let you have a look, before I tumbled in. Best wishes,

Dr Feelgood

Sparks or Sparkes ? I am in danger of over-running my editing quota on this one. Care to join the fray ?!

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 01:17, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Er - actually you are both right.
My copies of Down by the Jetty, Stupidity, Singles - The UA years etc. all have Sparks, which is what I've always thought it was.
However, as the anon IP states, the official website Dr Feelgood The Official Story - by Nic Clacy does indeed spell it Sparkes.
The UA press release, reproduced in the booklet to the Collectors Edition of Down by the Jetty, uses Sparkes (when quoting a Sounds review), Sparko and Sparks. I can't find my copy of Tony Moon (still in one of the boxes, if I didn't leave it behind).
Don't know how to resolve this. The album articles should be spelt as the sleeves, which for the ones I've checked, are all Sparks, and this appears to be the most common spelling, by far. Perhaps the article could have "Sparks (sometimes spelt Sparkes)"?
Ironically, I was watching them on stage in King's Lynn about two and a half hours before you posted your message.
Arjayay (talk) 17:00, 16 May 2010 (UTC)
I've changed the spelling back to Sparks and tried to cover it with a note. Let's see if this satisfies the Anon. As we both know, the criteria for Wikipedia is verifiability, not necessarily truth, and with the official website using an "e", the Anon has the verifiability card.
I've also added a timeline to the Personnel section, but it comes out rather long - I may remove it.
Arjayay (talk) 17:31, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I was a bit late out of the blocks on this one, but I see you have re-edited the article accordingly. Thanks - I too hope it sticks. I notice that you have found birth dates for the current band members - where did these come from ? The timeline is a good idea, but I share your misgivings over the size of it. I have never tried anything like that, but I see the Squeeze article has quite a good example, although how difficult it is to put together I would not know. Did you enjoy the Feelgoods the other evening ? Cheers,
Derek R Bullamore (talk) 18:03, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
Like the look of the Squeeze timeline - Looking at the edit code it looks easy (famous last words!).
The DoBs came from [6] The Feelgood's old web-site run from Germany by Gabbi. They have a few more DoBs there as well. I s'pose I should ref them in the article - tomorrow maybe.
King's Lynn was good - but an all-seated audience isn't their forte - they respond to a dancing crowd. One of the best recent Feelgood gigs I saw was at the little village of Blakeney in North Norfolk - locals out to have a good time, who are used to a lot of good RnB acts (Blues Band, 9 below 0, Ollie Brown have all played there recently).

Spacemen 3

I note your interest in Space rock. I recently did some work on this band's article, but felt that it needs a lot of work sorting facts from fancruft. You may be more interested than I in having a look, and seeing if anything is able to be rescued. You are probably busy elsewhere, but it was just a thought. Kind regards,

Derek R Bullamore (talk) 11:52, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Derek
Thanks for thinking of me.
I only know a little about Spacemen 3, although I know a bit more about Peter "Sonic Boom" Kember, but I am quite happy to learn. Many such bands have poor "official" documentation, but lots of fansites and blogs, which are sometimes taken as fact and copied by independent sites, so, as you say, it is difficult to "sort facts from fancruft".
I'm halfway through a couple of new articles (User:Arjayay/Byzantium (band) and one on Sean Tyla/The Tyla Gang, which hasn't yet reached User Space) and am about to go away, so it will be a couple of weeks before I can get to Spacemen 3.

Arjayay (talk) 12:36, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

Sean Tyla

I just wanted to say "good work" on the Sean Tyla article! It was about time one of Britain's finest got his name here. I added some info on his autobiography that will be published soon. Cheers, --95.209.50.97 (talk) 15:47, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

  1. When leaving messages on talk pages, please sign and date your message by leaving 4 tildes ~~~~ like this
  2. The word is Discussion not disscussion
  3. With regard to the changes made to the article, these were:-
  • Disambiguate link to direct to David Robinson (musician), rather than David Robinson
  • Correct the spelling of rythm to rhythm and remove blank lines
  • Correct spelling of useual to usual, correct English e.g. there to their, use of songs (should have been song's) and it's
  • Correct formatting e.g. link to album as opening of lede, rather than use of bold and add bullet points.
None of this needed any discussion whatsoever.

Orphaned non-free image File:Bowi.jpg

⚠

Thanks for uploading File:Bowi.jpg. The image description page currently specifies that the image is non-free and may only be used on Wikipedia under a claim of fair use. However, the image is currently orphaned, meaning that it is not used in any articles on Wikipedia. If the image was previously in an article, please go to the article and see why it was removed. You may add it back if you think that that will be useful. However, please note that images for which a replacement could be created are not acceptable for use on Wikipedia (see our policy for non-free media).

If you have uploaded other unlicensed media, please check whether they're used in any articles or not. You can find a list of "file" pages you have edited by clicking on the "my contributions" link (it is located at the very top of any Wikipedia page when you are logged in), and then selecting "File" from the dropdown box. Note that any non-free images not used in any articles will be deleted after seven days, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. Thank you. Skier Dude2 (talk) 04:04, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

I've restored the image; "Bowi" is a notable recording by a notable artist, and therefore deserves its own article. It could be better sourced, perhaps, but as part of late 1970s UK pop, it has its place, which deserves to be preserved. Rodhullandemu 04:19, 19 December 2010 (UTC)

Date vandalism

Hi. You undid this revert of mine on All by Myself. I admit that there wasn't much to go on in the edit summary, but could you have a look at my explanation at WikiProject Songs, and if you agree, do a self-revert. Thanks!  —SMALLJIM  09:58, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for your explanation.
The only date I can find for the release of Eric Carmen's version of All by Myself is 1 December 1975.
Arista Records do not have a list of release dates on their web-site, so all other references are "unofficial", but they are all either December (without a date) or 1 December.
I realise that, having been on Wikipedia for some time, these other sources may have copied the Wikipedia date, but that is speculation. 1 December 1975 was a Monday, the usual day of the week for records to be released in that era, whilst a release any later in December would miss the Christmas market. So the date looks highly likely as well.
If your vandal(s) added dates to months at random, there is a 1 in 30 chance they were accidentally right.
I therefore suggest we go with the other references and keep it as 1 December. - Arjayay (talk) 14:46, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
That's great, thanks for checking. In view of the IP's other edits I have no doubt that if it is correct, it's by luck. I don't see any problem with leaving the "1" in there—as long as you add a citation to it. After all, it's now a piece of challenged material, per WP:CHALLENGE. Cheers!  —SMALLJIM  19:25, 18 May 2011 (UTC)
No? I can't find anything that looks reliable for the 1st. The MTV article is dated 20 April 2011 which is after the 1 was added here. I also note that the same IP range (almost certainly the same person) had also added 4 and 12 Dec in earlier edits - [7] [8] etc. However, this interview looks OK, so I've replaced the "1" with "early" and cited it.  —SMALLJIM  13:33, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

Hi, do you know how you correctly upload an image for a music single on here? It's been ages since I've done it and everytime I try to find out, I find templates that don't look at all like the ones used for good profiles. Thanks Dollvalley (talk) 11:36, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi Dollvalley - I assume when you say "an image for a music single" you mean a picture-sleeve? It's ages since I've done it too, although I used to do quite a few
I keep crib notes as Word documents (including tips and hints for myself) and I have just pasted them in below, only changing the line break formats, so they work in Wikipedia.

Proposed deletion of Dick Campbell (singer-songwriter)

Arjayay, the Dick Campbell page has been put on Proposed deletion:

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article Dick Campbell (singer-songwriter) has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

The artist fails WP:SINGER and I have been unable to find any sources that are not self-published that discuss him.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. The speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion. Inks.LWC (talk) 21:17, 27 June 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the notability of the subject on its AfD page. I'm going to speedy close it because the group are notable. Would you care to add the information that you mentioned in the AfD to the article? Even though the band is notable, the article fails to demonstrate that it is. I couldn't find anything in a Google search either. That's why I tagged it in the first place. Cheers. Fly by Night (talk) 17:47, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

Hello Arjayay,

Thank you for changing the singles titles to the correct Wiki style on Simon's page. I am trying to learn Wiki house style as fast as I can and all help is much appreciated.

And can I ask where the use of bold type is appropriate? I see you unbolded "More recent". I just thought that might be of interest to readers.

Nine Below Zero (Editor with COI)

Since disclosing that I am an editor with COI - one of my professional responsibilities is to promote Nine Below Zero - I feel an apology is due to you, Arjayay. I am new to Wikipedia and was unaware of breaching this policy. I did not mean to flout any guidelines. I do not intend to bias the Nine Below Zero page in a promotional direction and I can promise you and all other editors that my intentions are to be neutral. My changes were merely intended to bring the page up-to-date, as I had a degree of knowledge I wished to share about the band's activities in recent years. I have left a similar message to this on the Nine Below Zero talk page to clarify and would like to make it clear to you that my motives were not sinister in the slightest and I only wanted to assist with the accuracy of the page. Do you think I should I refrain from making further edits? LukeEdwardsFC (talk) 20:41, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Apologies but I have re-submitted the Nine Below Zero page without the image but justified my reasons for doing so - it has just occurred to me through reading the policies on COI that I should have requested the image removal on the Talk page instead. Sorry, like I said, I'm a newcomer. Is it possible you can advise me on what I should do? LukeEdwardsFC (talk) 21:26, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

The Beatles poll

Hello — this message is to inform you that there is currently a public poll to determine whether to capitalize the definite article ("the") when mentioning the band "THE BEATLES" mid-sentence. As you've previously participated either here, here, or here, your input would be appreciated. Thank you for your time. Jburlinson (talk) 03:28, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Persondata answer

Hi Arjayay: thanks for catching the distinction and correcting it. I should have caught that. I think your instincts are fine. The more we can provide distinct information for people with the same name who work in the same or similar fields is always helpful.--FeanorStar7 18:38, 11 November 2012 (UTC)

Thanks - I have spent some time disambiguating frequently confused musicians - Pete Gage, Billy Rankin, Ronnie Scott etc. It is just that the "rules" in persondata are not particularly clear. Arjayay (talk) 19:01, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
