Guns N' Roses[edit]

This is a partial self-nomination. This has been considered as one of the best sources of information about Guns N roses in the internet by several fan sites. The article explains the whole history of the band as well as current information on the group. It has a lot of external links and references. User: Coburnpharr04 March 18, 2005 6:30 ET

  • Object. Numerous awkward phrasings in need of a copyedit. Though "dancing with Mr. Brownstone" appears in quotation marks, I can't tell who is being quoted. More detail is needed on the riots mentioned - casualties, legal ramifications, etc . It reads like a fan site (...the band's place as a heavily influential and permanent member of rock and roll history), and all of the external links appear to be either official or fan sites. A few more critical pieces would be great. Some concrete examples of their influence on other bands and music as a whole are needed to back up the claim of heavy influence. And the body text ends with "It has been heavily rumored thorugh the internet that the new album will be coming out on April, 2005.", which makes me wonder if it is not getting enough attention to fill in gaps. I would suggest Peer review. - BanyanTree 01:04, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Object. In need of a good copyedit - for instance the sentence "....Tobias left the band because of his frustrations with the slow way in which the recording of the new album was going." Also there are whole paragraphs that are essentially in bullets rather than in narrative form: "A riot ensued. Subsequent shows went on as planned. The tour was met with mixed results." Finally, it contains POV passages, and speculation. (see Banyan's commments). Fawcett5 15:36, 19 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Object lead section could be a bit longer (article could be too), but moreover a lack of a complete References section and a lack of photos (only 1 photo?) keep me from thinking this is a Featured Article type rather than an average moderately-evolved basic article. --Lan56 08:33, Mar 20, 2005 (UTC)
