Birthdate[edit]

Eric is another one of those musicians who have different years of birth, depending on where you get the info. Some sites list 1943 and some list 1944. Catbar (Brian Rock) 06:14, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)

For what it's worth, the "1943" I originally put in this article was straight from the liner notes of one of his albums. On the other hand, his web site says 1944... --Paul A 05:14, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC)
Yep, I've seen this before with Greg Lake, except that as far as I can determine, he doesn't discuss his age, so there's no official reckoning of the issue. It isn't uncommon for celebrities to fudge their ages. Catbar (Brian Rock) 05:37, 9 Jan 2005 (UTC)

The correct date of birth for Eric Is 1943

Do you have some documentation for this? -- Metahacker 15:05, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

John McDermott[edit]

The link to John McDermott (a Canadian singer) is to the wrong John McDermott (a US golfer). Unfortunately, there is no entry for the correct John McDermott in Wikipedia at this time (April 21, 2006)... (author: Erhan Berber; eberber@hotmail.com)

Weasel words[edit]

I believe that this page is tainted by , does anybody disagree, agree? --144.132.216.253 13:52, 28 May 2007 (UTC)
Completely untrue. Their are no weasel words here, although I do believe that "No Mans Land" is more widely known than "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda", although it is one of those two songs.
I see one "perhaps" and that's about it...otherwise it looks very declarative. We might work on digging up some references for things, but that's about it. -- Metahacker 13:20, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
As to which is more popular, my rewording of the section as dealing with two of his most prominent songs should allow for both possibilities. Grutness...wha? 07:45, 7 October 2008 (UTC)
