Vandalism FYI[edit]

The vandalism that followed Beck's Grammy win has been mentioned in the media - see here. Tabercil (talk) 23:38, 10 February 2015 (UTC)

I've added this to the talk header. Snuggums (talk / edits) 19:00, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

New Vandalism[edit]

There is blatant vandalism in Beck's info box. As well as at the absolute top of his page where it says "Beck is not an alternative singer" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.226.8.21 (talk) 02:21, 25 March 2015 (UTC)

This was reverted 24 hours ago, perhaps caching issues at your side. Materialscientist (talk) 02:22, 25 March 2015 (UTC)
Still seeing it here, too. 68.113.105.70 (talk) 10:43, 26 March 2015 (UTC)

Misstated?[edit]

From the first paragraph of "Early Life," the article's first section:

Bibbe's maternal grandmother was Jewish, while Bibbe's father, Al Hansen, was partly of Norwegian descent

Is this stated correctly? Was the Jewish woman "Bibbe's maternal grandmother" or, instead, "Bibbe's mother," i.e., Beck's maternal grandmother? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.245.226.49 (talk) 23:54, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

"sonic genres"[edit]

What is a "palette of sonic genres" and why is he most known for it? This whole introduction sounds like something his publicists would write themselves. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.6.177.52 (talk) 05:22, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Came to the Talk page with similar thoughts. It's not that it sounds like something a publicists would write, though, but rather, it sounds like something a high school or freshman college student would write in an attempt to sound more sophisticated than they are. The lede should probably be redone without so many false-puffery/flowery adverbs and adjectives. — al-Shimoni (talk) 00:24, 14 November 2016 (UTC)

The complete absence of Cafe Troy...[edit]

I knew him during the period around 1990 to 1992. He used to serve me espresso at Cafe Troy on First Street near Alameda in Little Tokyo. The cafe was owned and operated by his mom Bibi Hansen and his step father Sean Carrillo. Cafe Troy is not mentioned at all in the Beck entry, and therefore there is no mention of its importance in Beck's story. He performed on Cafe Troy's stage...

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Beck (disambiguation) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 20:30, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
