UntitledEdit

There are a few edits on wiki in which people failed to realize that David Berman (singer) and David Berman (writer) are one and the same. i've gone to certain measures to fix that (adding this to this page, fixing David Berman (disambiguation) and a broken link off the Open City article), but further help would be lovely. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.250.71.200 (talkcontribs)

Fair use rationale for Image:Amwater.jpgEdit

Image:Amwater.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Silver JewelryEdit

David Berman says in the documentary Silver Jew that he made up the story about naming the band after a misread Silver Jewelry sign. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 207.161.75.61 (talk) 18:02, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

That's awesome; we need a source that everyone can see, though, not just those who own the Silver Jew DVD. Shamrox (talk) 08:27, 27 January 2009 (UTC)

Berman in hospital in 1984?Edit

"In 1984, Berman was hospitalized for "Approaching Perfection." He was in Europe at the time and has claimed that a "correction" needed to be made."

These are in the lyrics for Random Rules, a song in which he refers to himself as "Steve." Is it fact that Berman was actually in hospital for some ailment in 1984? I think it's hilarious that someone added it, but perhaps it can be deleted unless it's verified?

Substance abuseEdit

In citation [2] it only says that he overdozed on Xanax. Perhaps we should have sources for the other drugs and alcohol that's mentoined? Modul8r (talk) 15:23, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

Need reliable source for thisEdit

In early 2003, The Houston, Tx.-based theater group Infernal Bridegroom Productions staged a theatrical interpretation of Actual Air, which featured selected poems from Berman's book, as well as three live covers of Silver Jews songs, with Berman's blessing.[citation needed]

Though he was a reluctant live performer as a musician, Berman occasionally did readings of his short stories and poems in both the US and the UK. His accomplished and trademark sardonic lyrics were compared by some to Bob Dylan, and his poetry was known to examine overlooked aspects of everyday life as well as chance and often hilarious juxtapositions.[citation needed]
