Ok, heres another chance for us to bitch and give the staff a hard time. But seriously, Bararey requested I make a thread discussing the mistakes on bands timelines to make the mistakes easier to hunt down.

My only problem at the moment is on Motorheads timeline, it shows Brian Robertson as playing on both Iron Fist and Another Perfect Day, even though he only appeared on APD, and Iron Fist was Fast Eddie Clarkes last album with the band, and it shows him as not being part of the band at that point.

Any others?

hi! i have a question about these timelines:
i saw them for the first time today, i find this a good idea! but i do not understand the colors... ok i kinda get the blue: band is well known (?)
but how do (other) color(s) reflect the albums ? or what's the main purpose of colors ?

I think its just a way of quickly telling the dividing line between certain periods.

Be patient with the lineup please - right now the problem is that lineup are not attached to albums, but rather to years, so there's no way to specify who exactly played on the album recorded in the year of lineup change. I'm working on a solution for that.

A bit off topic about time line, but the problem with lineup attached to years and not to album is particulary noticable for guest/session members for band that publish more than 1 release per year....

...annoying

I'm sure this has been suggested before. But it would be a cool idea to have a way of showing the final lineup of bands that are currently disbanded instead of just showing all members as previous.

Look the band Sylosis, their styles are Melodic Death and Thrash Metal
