Lee Denson[edit]

I have recently expanded this article and included several referenced sources. Do you think that the notability tag can now be removed ? I have some doubts about his notability, and another editor I asked (he who placed the original {notability} tag) is rather on the fence like me. I would welcome a third opinion. Thanks,

I've expanded the article a little. I think it demonstrates his notability, so I've removed the tag. Ghmyrtle (talk) 16:47, 27 July 2018 (UTC)
Well done, on both counts. Much appreciated. - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 17:38, 27 July 2018 (UTC)

Rodger Penzabene[edit]

Paragraph removed due to inaccuracy and no factual proof as shown by the third source. The existence of this paragraph is damaging. The quote in it is accurate, but the validity of that quote is widely discounted and thus makes the addition of it and any commentary about it damaging and not proven. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Keithcrime1965 (talkcontribs) 18:48, 30 July 2018 (UTC)

Felice Taylor[edit]

Hello Sir, In answer to your specific question referring to Felice Taylor's sister being in Love Unlimited I'm not sure but The Sweets which included Felice and her sisters Darlene & Norma certainly worked with Barry White in the mid sixties releasing two 45s. Felice Taylor's birth name was Florain Flanagan. Taylor was a stage name. Her brothers Jerry & Charles Flanagan wrote the Valiant single sides including the rather lovely 'Rich Girl'. She did not provide lead on The Sweets 45s.Dorkinglad (talk) 14:08, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

Quite possibly so..... - but we should make every effort to find a more reliable source. Ghmyrtle (talk) 20:38, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

Hello, There is a mention from her daughter on You Tube as to the fact she had passed but I realise that that is hearsay. I actually looked up her name on the Social Security records that are available on-line. Florain Weaver (her final married name) came up with a relative called Charlotte Lanee Taylor at the same address in LA. This corresponded with the name on the You Tube video. Ms Taylor gave her mother's passing as 6/12/2017 - assume that is 12th June. I double check using the name Florain Taylor and came up with Florain Corella Taylor and again Charlotte Lanee listed.

I confirmed that Johnny Taylor (not The JT) was her manager back in the day (and co-wrote her single on Kent) from the article in Soul Survivor magazine. She had also recorded first for Groovy label in 1966 (picked up by Cadet) as Florain Taylor. This being a very unusual Christian nomenclature I was able to find her under her various guises in Beaumont nr LA. She was also Brown and Andrews at one time.

You can also look up the BMI writing credits for song writers (as I'm sure you are aware). Her Kent single 'I can feel your love' was written by Jerry Flanagan & Johnny Taylor. Jerry Flanagan wrote The Sweets sides on Valiant label. The Sweets were Felice (Florain), her sisters Darlene (lead) & Norma. It's on You Tube and another brother Charles Flanagan has made an entry stating that they were his sisters and Jerry ws his brother. Unless Charles and Jerry were half brothers with different names it makes Felice's birth name Florain Corella Flanagan. However I did find one Social security record where the birth dates tallied for Florain Corella Taylor Taylor so it could be that a her first marriage was to someone with the same surname. I do hope you are following this. Anyway I didn't choose to put that in the article but referred to you as the originator of the article). I didn't think I had a definitive answer apart from her name being Florain (not Florian) so I highlighted to yourself.

I knew that the spelling for Florain had been transcribed incorrectly but as you know changing such errors takes time to gather evidence. Incidentally The Sweets cut a second 45 on Soul Town called 'Something about my baby' released in the late 60s but possibly earlier.Keep up the good work Dorkinglad (talk) 17:30, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Indeed you Gotcha' me! It seems you've splendidly reaffirmed the research I did this week. The Soul Survivor magazine article published in Autumn 1985 doesn't mention the Groovy / Cadet single but likely the journalist/article writer didn't have that information. I've asked the Soul Source site if anyone can confirm that Florain /Felice Taylor are one & the same.The Cadet 45 is on the internet at You Tube and aurally the singer sounds the same as the Felice Taylor releases. The flip side to Felice's 'I Can Feel Love Comin' is called 'Captured By Your Love' on President UK. It's written by Johnny Taylor and Jerry Flanagan (husband 7 brother of Florine/Florain). Would you say that was enough to show the link? Interesting that my early hunch that she was older than stated was true. This happens often in the 60s. She was only 16 when she married Taylor. I found two children from the marriage on the internet including Charlotte. Dorkinglad (talk) 22:53, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Well done to the both of you for your fine efforts in rooting around for information regarding this lady. I'm sorry to learn that she had died, but frankly with Florine/Florain/Florian/Felice and Flanagan/Taylor/Andrews to contend with, it is not surprising that the usual band of Wiki pixies missed her passing. I have polished up her article a bit, and will have a go at the affiliated articles, such as her songs in due course. Regards - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 23:40, 25 August 2018 (UTC)

Conflict of interest[edit]

Hi G There is no conflict of interest I can assure you. These guys past and present have all contributed to the success of The Equals and will let loose look favourably to Wikipedia for correct information. The Equals (talk) 10:48, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes, but the correct information needs to be added by independent editors with no connection to the band, based on what is said in independent reliable sources - not by band members or their associates. That is a conflict of interest, whatever your or their intentions might be. The way forward is to ask independent editors to correct any factual errors, by raising the issue on the article talk page. Again, please read WP:COI - and, if you want to discuss this further, the discussion forum is at WP:COIN. Ghmyrtle (talk) 10:55, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

A courtesy notice[edit]

Hello. Since I quoted you in this message here, you should be informed. Here's the culmination of a small exchange on the article itself here. I think this is a persistent problem with this editor, and given their past behaviour, it may well repeat and escalate if we want to try to stop having to watch out for it.  DDStretch  (talk) 16:25, 19 September 2018 (UTC)

Biased removal of Hope Not Hate criticism of not being apolitical charity, but motivated by Labour MPs directorships[edit]

Given sections on Jo Cox, it is relevant whether By-Election caused was manipulated. Notably, AJ' remover has hits that appear to correspond with comments from 'Centre for European Economic Research' (meaning this is EU meddling in English/UK politics). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2A02:C7F:DA28:3200:449:5F82:2407:2D20 (talk) 15:16, 15 October 2018 (UTC)

Art Greenhaw[edit]

A simple request it seems. Could you see if you can unearth a full date of birth for this individual. There is a fair amount of background information in the article, which I am presently trying to get up to scratch. Incidentally, I am now a honorary Light Crust Doughboy - it's true. I am seemingly only one step away from a Grammy. Beat that if you can ! Cheers,

How reliable is this? Ghmyrtle (talk) 13:40, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Looks good enough to me - many thanks, - Derek R Bullamore (talk) 13:53, 2 November 2018 (UTC)
Another request. Could you cast your eye over this, now updated, article and let me know what you think. I am well aware that there is a paragraph in the middle without a source - I do not doubt it's accuracy, but could not find a relevant reference(s). I have been tinkering with the article for about two months now (with prompts and pointers from Mr. Greenhaw). Frankly, I now feel too close to the damn thing to be truly objective, or is it subjective, as to its merits (or downfalls). Many thanks, I always seem to be asking some favour from you ! Cheers
