Blood is Blood Movement On 14 December 2015, Jordan Moll-Vigrass, Congressmen Brian Higgins and the Pride Center of Western New York held a community rally in Buffalo, New York to rally against the Food and Drug Administration policy that bans blood donations by gay and bisexual men. Moll-Vigrass, who is openly gay and had been in a committed relationship for four years, was refused as a blood donor after disclosing his sexual orientation during the questionnaire screening process. Outraged by the federal policy and disappointed by being refused as a blood donor, Moll-Vigrass started to advocate for change. "The government's unfounded policy is hurtful to the people being turned away solely based on sexual orientation and the millions of others who will be in need of a lifesaving blood donation," said Higgins. "Eligibility should be based on risk-based science rather than outdated, fear-based speculation. Blood is Blood" is dedicated to encouraging the FDA to seek and implement blood donation policies that are non-discriminatory towards the Gay & Bi-sexual community in an effort to save lives by holding annual blood drives and events to spark conversation and change. http://www.wkbw.com/news/gay-man-fighting-for-right-to-give-blood

Motiff producer, musician, songwriter, artist (Just like a Motif symbol, the artist, producer, dj and songwriter, Arbise Gonzalez aka Motiff is the unifying element between the artist and the music. His electronic-edgy sound with Latin influences shape the theme elaborated in his music.
Motiff, was born in Caracas, Venezuela on September 25, 1984. At the early age of 5 he began to play every instrument in sight. He grew up by his father's side, influenced by his contribution to music. His father was the percussionist for the Venezuela-based and internationally known big band "La Billo's Caracas Boys.” He began to integrate Motiff into the world of music and sound by taking him to recording sessions, rehearsals and shows. These close involvements led him to the acceptance into the Music Conservatory at the age of six where he later studied music theory and perfected performance of various instruments. In1996, Motiff brought his talent to the United States, assimilating to the culture while integrating his unique sound and rhythms to the diversity of the Miami music scene.
In 2004, Motiff was given the opportunity to apply his gift and work closely with Jose Miguel Velazquez, a popular music producer and vocal coach to the stars. One beat at a time, he co-produced for Latin music artists such as David Bisbal, Don Omar, David Bustamante, Shalim and Pimpinela.
In 2012, alongside music mogul, Emilio Estefan, Motiff co-produced superstar Gloria Estefan's hit dance song “Hotel Nacional.” “Hotel Nacional” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs Chart and placed #1 on the Billboard Dance Charts. He is the mastermind behind hits such as Jencarlos feat. Pitbull & Cata's "Baila Baila" and the Billboard chart topping hit "Pegate Mas" by Dyland and Lenny.
In 2013 he joined Pitbull's "Global Warming Tour" as part of the Artist's band 'The Agents’ while collaborating on Samo's Album ‘Invevitable’ , Jbalvin's freshman album ‘La Famila’ and his first single as an artist, "I'll Be Fine" released in spring of 2014 under Mr. 305 INC.
2014 and 2015 brought new challenges and opportunities as he produced “Que Suenen Los Tambores” for salsa singer Victor Manuelle. This was the only song to stay at #1 on the Billboard Tropical Chart for 9 consecutive weeks in 2014, Victors biggest hit since 2004. At the same time he produced the second single for Latin Artist Natalia Jimenez called “Quedate Con Ella.” This would be followed by another 6 songs on Jimenezs’ Album “Creo En Mi,” which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Latin Album Chart.
Well into 2015, Motiff is working on Chino y Nacho's album ‘Radio Universo’ producing the first single called “Me Voy Enamorando” Ft. Farruko currently climbing the charts. Followed by Gente De Zona's “La Gozadera” Ft. Marc Anthony, which earns the highest debut on Hot Latin Songs Billboard Chart. The song logged nearly 4,000 downloads sold its’ first week, according to Nielsen Music, enough for a No. 7 debut on Latin Digital Songs.
The list of upcoming projects continues for Motiff as he keeps pushing the boundaries with his signature sound, catchy melodies and lyrics.)

Musical act - as concept (like Band). Used in many articles
The Standard Repertoire - It's not unusual to hear this phrase used by people who play classical/baroque/etc. music. The idea of a standard repertoire appears to be used in many places in Wikipedia (List of Operas in the Standard Repertoire, for example). Now I wouldn't be surprised if this is a bit of a nebulous and genre-specific term, but it seems to me that even simply having an article that says so would be useful to those who are curious.
Scoring Stage - "Scoring Stage" appears to be a technical term for a place used to record movie scores. It appears in news articles and Google searches for the term used in this way. "Sound Stage" has an article, but this is a different concept. (, , )
Butterfly Messiah - Needs formatting. It appears as though the bulk of the page was directly copy+pasted from the official site. --Blu Aardvark 23:46, 10 July 2005 (UTC)

Dangerous Toys - Semi Disbanded is a made up section header (Current Projects seems more appropriate). Much of the Section content promotes upcoming commercial product releases - including some for other bands. Needs a shift in focus to actual (i.e., current or previous) Dangerous Toys releases.

Shattersphere - This page is very biased. Just look at the intro, "Imagine the ultimate combination of Rock and Metal, a genre of music that can dominate the Mainstream world and still have enough capacity to steamroll into the Underground. Now take a quintet of driven, talented, and professional musicians and the result is Shattersphere.".
Queens of the Stone Age - Just joined this WP ... QOTSA's page is full of good facts and is somewhat cited but it needs an overhaul. I am going to dive in head-first! Any and all suggestions are more than welcome -- I'm going to need some help along the way! AC (talk) 03:00, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Christian Death - Numerous problems...Mainly that NONE of the information is cited, and the references is full of unreliable sources that are mainly heresay. The article is also extremely biased, and most of the contributors have a biased either towards Rozz Williams or Valor Kand. The article needs a neutral person to come in and clean it up...I've tried and failed. rzrscm (talk) 23:10, 27 August 2010 (UTC)

Alright, his birthdate has been fixed per grove, I removed a broken external link from Sopranist (which he wasn't). Giambattista is just a common contraction of his given names, so I've left that alone. I think that's all. Makemi 00:19, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

Help! Anybody interested in taking a pop at Dream pop with me, this article is driving me nuts, people just fill it up with any old rubbish, see my comments on talk page, firstly it is a vaguely defined, almost non-existant genre, never heard of it before myself and it's mainly OR with comments like "the Velvets, Husker Du, the Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus" etc. were all influences on it.
None of the bands listed in the lede as the main proponents have any article, reference or bio referring to them as dream pop. CaptainScreeboParley! 19:53, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan - He was a major Qawwali singer. The article needs to be improved a lot. I would do it myself, but I have little knowledge of music. Anyone who studies music will find working on this article very interesting, as his music is uniqe and this man was famous the world over. Anyway, the lead needs expansion, better description of his music in technical terms needs to be given, and the article needs more references. --Zaindy٨٧ 12:21, 9 March 2008 (UTC)
Diana Ross's Diana Ross' Greatest Hits album article has a two questionable paragraphs: the one starting "Diana had no less than 4 albums on the charts at the time..." because it refers to albums and songs that came out years later and the grammar and meaning is questionable; and the one starting ""Diana Ross Greatest Hits" included one of the first mega-mixes created by a club dj" because the album contains no such mix. It would seem that these paragraphs were intended for a different article.--Pmarkush (talk) 13:40, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
Woodford Folk Festival - The woodford folk festival is a massive annual event that involves hundreds of thousands of people and has been around for almost 20 years in some form but the entry is absolutely tiny and does nothing more then acknowledge its existence.
Music of La Femme Nikita: the article lacks sources (documentation for verification) and appears to be the product of original research: WP:NOR. (See "Broadcasting" section above.) --NYScholar 22:51, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
This has the potential to be a very useful article, if only any information on its origins can be supplied. Even the identity of the recording would be a major step. Matthew Platts 02:22, 25 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Article is well written, heavily sourced, much too long, and incomplete. Organization is incoherent. Says more about Klezmer than Jazz. This has the makings of a featured article that went astray. Part of the Arts of the United States series. Durova 19:44, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
Article lacks coherence and import. The sections vary considerably in content and focus, with some amounting to little more than lists. Someone with a broad understanding of modern Italian music, including its influences, could really help this one along. Vineviz 15:08, 14 February 2006 (UTC)
Lacking enough source information, was only able to build up a basic bio of his life from a obituatry in the Chicago Sun-Times from 2000. Internet sources are very minimal, so other alternate source will have to be found with more information. Also, I was unable to find anything on his birth date, though in the obituary, his exact death is mentioned. Compuguy1088 19:33, 21 January 2007 (UTC)
For over one year now, Rhythmic mode has required someone who knows something about music to take a looks at it. Hyacinth has presented specifications of what is required on the article's talk page. It would be cool if someone could head over there and help out.--Commander Keane 21:23, 14 April 2006 (UTC)
I've translated Arioso from fr:Arioso. Being not a specialist in music, I thought I'd bring it to your attention, to see if it makes any sense at all! --Wonderfool 10:29, 22 April 2006 (UTC)
This article needs considerable attention. It makes some sense, but is very incomplete, and in some instances inaccurate. The French article as of today's date is certainly somewhat improved from the version translated two years ago - a new translation would be a good starting point.

Read it and weep. Almost non-existent article, I've heard they are quite popular. meltBanana 01:04, 20 November 2006 (UTC)
I've added it to Wikipedia:Requests for expansion and stubbed it, so hopefully it will get more attention now, especially considering it has well over 500 articles linking to it. Madder 19:09, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
Not referenced, and past versions have received complaints from professors and students in the field. -- Zanimum 17:27, 22 November 2006 (UTC)
This article mentions Reinhardt and Farkas. Both of these people have written books on the subject of embouchure, and permission to cite these texts could probably be easily attained. Another great reference is David Hickman's "Trumpet Pedagogy". This book retails for about $44. Being a trombonist, I would also recommend Ed Kleinhammer, Reginald Fink, and the Alessi/Bowman edition of the Arban Method. --Mdwilber (talk) 19:13, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
Sound production and choice of equipment (mouthpiece) is highly dependent on mouthpiece placement. What I mean is that a player with a 70/30 upper/lower embouchure is going to be able to play lower more easily, while the other way around enables the player to play higher more easily. For this reason, this fact should be given a greater amount of emphasis. --Mdwilber (talk) 19:23, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
I am currently trying to get this to GA status and eventually featured article status, but I am having major problems with the section on the band's music and its themes, after having done major work on the history section. Any help would be appreciated.-h i ss p a c er e s e a r c h 17:17, 23 June 2007 (UTC)
This article failed the WP:FLC due to the ongoing dispute of the format of the article. Please, we need to resolve this dispute ASAP, and the only to do it is by voting. Voting is occurring at the talk page. It would be nice to have your opinions on this. We need to have scope and opinion from other non-Carrie Underwood fans who can provide useful criticisms. Please contribute! Cheers. σмgнgσмg(talk) 08:58, 27 February 2008 (UTC)
Smacks of a promotional piece with inflated claims ("the Madonna of Russia"?). Could use some help on this, esp. from anyone conversant in the language; I've posted a similar request at WP:RUSSIA. I want to assume good faith but I've had little luck with Google; hopefully someone can help prove my instincts wrong this once. —Hello, ControlHello, Tony 16:32, 3 March 2008 (UTC)
Could somebody please take a look at Susan Hurley (composer)? I am in a bit of an edit war with a very stubborn newbie who refuses to follow Wikipedia style formatting. I've never heard of this composer, and I have no opinion as to anything about her, but the article reads like a resume, full of sentence fragments, and the newbie owner of the article is repeatedly attacking me for having the temerity to suggest that his prose is not deathless. Corvus cornixtalk 23:16, 14 April 2008 (UTC)
If this article is in any way useful it should be linked on the music portal.
Though, I don't think in its present state it is useful. It's not neutral. It should either be a mere link list of articles on the individual years in music or - if some events are pointed out there- someone should make sure that only really significant events are mentioned, not the birth of some musicians or the release of some albums. At least, if people think some event is important enough to be mentioned there they should make clear why. Could someone from the music project please have a look at this?--Sylvia Anna (talk) 21:56, 5 October 2008 (UTC)
The article on Sofia Rotaru features a claim of her having declared an income of $100 millions for 2007. This would make her the highest earning solo performer in the world in that year, compared to e.g. Madonna earnign 37 . The claim is based on a synthesis of two unlinked claims by the Deputy Chairman of the State Tax Administration of Ukraine. The annual incomes of similar Post-Soviet entertainers did not exceeded $9 millions (Alla Pugacheva, Filipp Kirkorov, Maxim Galkin). See all the evidence on Talk:Sofia Rotaru. --Jaan Pärn (talk) 12:38, 17 November 2009 (UTC)
The above mentioned problem is just one example out of many. The article features more outrageous claims (including Rotaru being the first ever rapper in the 1970s), weasel words (Rotaru is considered a Pop Queen etc) and unencyclopaedic content (info about her impersonators, friends etc). All of the issues have been raised on the respective talk page accompanied by a nasty edit war resulting in every possible improvement reverted by a raving fan of Rotaru. A 3O process was initiated which failed completely, mostly, because it is solely a content issue. The article in its current shape is a parody of what a wikiarticle on a musician should be and therefore in bad need of attention. --Jaan Pärn (talk) 13:48, 23 November 2009 (UTC)
Need someone more familiar with the subject to please visit Talk:Song#Edit_dispute and see if perhaps a third party can comment and help clarify the issue of whether or not a song must have words (as opposed to an instrumental). - SudoGhost (talk) 00:26, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
Someone is inserting wrong info regarding the Victor Talking Machine Company. A new unrelated entity calling itself the Victor Talking Machine Company was formed last year and a problem editor keeps treating the two companies as one and the same. Please monitor the Victor Talking Machine article and revert erroneous postings. Thank you. Steelbeard1 (talk) 22:30, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
I write article Dare Straits Tour and I create stubs on redlinks and in discussion there was a question on sources.
I lean against soundly worked site, on it is much posters and tickets.
The opponent doubts reliability, but it is not enough its arguments to overpersuade me.
This question somewhere was discussed?--Andrey! 09:22, 19 February 2010 (UTC)

Opinions needed. I've created a draft of an article in my sandbox for Jim Bacchi. Does it meet the criteria for WP:MUSICBIO? I'd like to know what others think before I publish it. Thanks!-- — Keithbob • Talk • 18:44, 13 November 2015 (UTC)

an editor deleted most of the article on experimental rock . As he says on the talk page, he aims to rewrite it, and could find three sources, including Allmusic and a book on the band Yes. 7 months later, his version doesn't include a single reference to most of the important developments, including psychedelia, post-punk and industrial, but gives major weight to something called "post-progressive". The version of the article from February was mostly unsourced, but comparatively long and detailed and looked competent enough. I suggested improving on it instead of writing from scratch, but the editor didn't express his will to cooperate, saying only that I should "go for it". I don't have enough time to see to all this, so I decided to notify you of this issue. Chilton (talk) 12:06, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
It should be noted that the original version of "experimental rock" had been tagged with issues since 2007, and that it contained only 6 refs. Virtually the entire 22KB article was OR.
@Chilton: In response to this comment: "I suggested improving on it instead of writing from scratch, but the editor didn't express his will to cooperate, saying only that I should "go for it". I don't have enough time to see to all this ...", please read WP:BURDEN:
All content must be verifiable. The burden to demonstrate verifiability lies with the editor who adds or restores material, and is satisfied by providing a citation to a reliable source that directly supports the contribution.
By "go for it", I mean you are welcome to provide citations – if you can find them. I have tried looking for sources that directly support most of the claims from the original article. I have not been successful.
