The Johnny Cash Project: A Participatory Music Video That Sings One of the questions that comes up most frequently when I talk with folks about participation is: What should we do with their post-its and stories and drawings and poems? This question is a byproduct of the reality that most participatory projects have poorly articulated value.
Yet Rosanne Cash's page says she's 59, that would make Johnny 12 years old when Rosanne was born. Somewhere there is a mistake. Rosanne is either younger, or Johnny was older.
My mistake, He was 23 when Rosanne was born. I warned Opus not to remove sourced information without offering a sufficient reason, but he ignored me, and even encouraged me to report him for vandalism.
It does not matter if Opus regards the claim as exaggeration, in fact, it does not matter what Opus or any other editor thinks, referenced information cannot be removed simply because we disagree with it.
I encourage other editors to join in this discussion. The unnamed writer of the obituary in Eugene's The Register-Guard describes Cash as "one of the most influential pupular sic music stars — especially in the areas of country music and rock 'n' roll — of the 20th century.
Moreover, the principles outlined at WP: On balance, given the prominent position of this claim and the principle of "extraordinary claims need extraordinary sources", I agree with its removal. I have no opinion about the claim one way or the other, though there is also an NYT ref.
My point from the beginning, and what I said above, is that he offered no valid reason, never even attempted to do so, for his blanking the information. He is just as capable as you or I to come to the talk page and make his case for it's removal. I believe valid sources can be found for the claim, but that does not mean it belongs in the lede.
Opus should have engaged in discussion. BTW, I can't see how the NYT article supports this specific claim "most influential" ; the author, Stephen Holdenmentions JC's influence on rock 'n' roll and writes of his "incalculable influence on music", but I'm pretty sure he doesn't mean all of "the music of the 20th century".
The music of the 20th century link should never have been added, clearly. I have compiled several credible sources while doing this research that I would be glad to share to help improve Cash's Wikipedia page.
I do not, however, know how to cite articles on the Wikipedia page. If I supplied links to the sources, is there anyone who would be willing to create a properly cited "Humanitarianism and Activism" section to Cash's page?
There is certainly enough material to justify a section. Darth Septic talk How about "The book reportedly does not hold back any details about the darker side of Johnny Cash and includes details about his affair with June Carter's sister, which occurred while June Carter was pregnant.
His name was JR. His birth name is stated correctly in the background information section. His name was not, and has never been John.
His stage name was Johnny. One or other of these pieces of information is clearly wrong; I'm guessing the former but perhaps a Cash expert out there could set the record straight one way or the other.The project claims to have the participation of , people from countries around the world.
