This might require the expressed written consent..... It might be easier to paraphrase a text than avoid all possibilities of author's rights and eventual royalties.

although I could not even begin to picture a band suing another site for including a text from their site as a promotion tool on another site.

 
Unless somebody adds Metallica to the site. Wink LOL

Just to let everyone know that the Symphonic team is going all over it's bands and adding bio's where there are none and adding to incomplete bio's.
They have so far done many bio's (don't remember how much) and are now towards the end of the ABC.
 
The Zeuhl/Avant/RIO Team (ZART for short) is doing the same and we have an easier job since we have much less bands. We added 5-6 bio's and will don the rest in the coming while (personal obligations are holding us back a bit).
 
Any member wishing to write a bio, correct or improve an existing one which is not complete or informative enough (a few lines), may PM a member of the team assigned to the genre to which the band belongs to, or can post it here.

Noticed Steve Thorne hasn't got a biography yet.
 
I wrote a little something, needs improvements i think, but just for starters.
 
 

Prolific multi-instrumentalist Steve Thorne started his solo carreer after playing in the little known bands Colony Earth and the Salamander Poject, which supported Jadis on their European tour. The tour was well received, and Steve got signed to GEP, the IQ record compagny, which gave him a head start when he recorded his solo debut album. His connections with Jadis and IQ resulted in notable guest appearances of many well known progressive rock musicians, like John Jowitt (IQ-Arena), Gary Chandler (Jadis), Tony Levin (King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, etc.), Geoff Downes (Asia, Yes), Paul Cook (IQ) and many more. Which resulted in a very eclectic style, ranging from Folk to pop, with symphonic influences, often in the Jadis/IQ style. The main style of his music can be described as singer/songwriter, best comparable with the likes of Guy Manning.

I have e-mailed Chilean band Astralis to send me their biography because it's not on Internet. I hope to add Astralis soon to Prog Archives.

Eh, I know it's an old thread, but how many of the bands listed (including new bands) still lack a description?

Hi I'm not hugely into the band RPWL but I just read their biography page on here and to put it bluntly its rather terrible. I tried to find a button to edit it or something, in the same way you can album information but I couldn't find a button. Is it possible for me to improve the biography? If so I'd be up to the task.

I suggest you propose your updated bio by creating a new thread in the Errors & Ommision arena ( http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_topics.asp?FID=60 ) and the E&O team can liase with the specialist team to get approval for any changes.

Well this is for the Jazz Rock team:

Alejandro Herrera plays the electric bass since he was 12 years old.
From 1986 he has been leading his own groups where he develops his career as a composer and arranger (he has 3 CDs) and his present group is one of the most outstanding ones of jazz scene in Buenos Aires - Argentina.
On the other hand due to his versatility with the instrument, he is required by musicians of different styles to do recordings, and is also called to play with foreign musicians that tour around South America. Lately he has been part of several local groups like: "Ricardo Nole Trio", "Clase Unica" trio, Gustavo Bergalli quintet, "Robert Petinatto & Now", Alejandro Santos group, among others.

Catharsis done, as quoted from Malesch records site (citation provided) - http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=2626.
No pics found though. And no credit taken . too humble to claim work involved in copy & paste Tongue

I have recently added Svanfridur's bio, and now there is only one missing bio in Heavy Prog - Valinor's Tree, which will be taken care of by Jared.

Forgive me because I know it is here somewhere, but after almost five years on this forum I still find the ' Search' function on this site very non ' user friendly'. Maybe it will take me another five years to figure outConfused
 
That aside, is there an updated list of band's requiring bio's, and what would be even better.....split by genre?
