It's incomplete (even insofar as the 'basics' are concerned), misleading, and practically pointless! A textbook example of the dangers of Wikipedia, writ large! :lol:

Although Wikipedia is useful, it is heavily censored. Whoever does this editing/censoring insures the whole site is biased towards their views. This may not affect subject matter such as rock stars, but it certainly affects other things. Basically anything slightly controversial is omitted, deleted or treated in a dismissive way. For example, a scientist with new theories found it impossible to even get a mention in Wikipedia despite having published many books, had his theories published abroad and having been interviewed on the BBC.

Many other people do get a mention on Wikipedia, but in such a biased way that if printed in a newspaper the publishers would be sued for libel.

Absolutely, Tony. Wikipedia is VERY biased (especially concerning politics and science) and there is all reason to be cautious.

Some articles on musicians are quite good though, but it is always a bit of a hit or miss.
