What happened to drummer George Spanos? George and I played together in Detroit in the early 70s. I played bass. - 68.96.56.11

(Did mama sing tenor?)

Rebone had at least one vinyl 12-inch LP record in the quadraphonic SQ format. Though not super-rare you sure don't see the quad LPs every day. The incredibly lovely and talented Obbop told yah' this. 209.50.1.33 22:30, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Redbone.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Redbone.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 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 23:02, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Permissions[edit]

Since there's a problem with providing "fair use" validation for graphics here, I am searching out probably copyrighted but privately owned pictures of the band from sources easily reached for copyright permission. (Getting permissions from Sony et al. being nearly impossible; they claim to have purchased repro rights for the album graphics, and are not the rights owners). This has the additional benefit that such sources had contact with the band, and are being asked to provide recollections. Any results will be edited in as received. If anyone has any connections to previous members that I can follow up on, please forward any contact info (no matter how informal) and I'll do the reaching.

This is an encyclopedia.[edit]

This article gushes relentlessly, uses exclamations, reads like an advertisement for the band, and contains a lot of unsourced specific information. This is not a band mom's blog, but it sure looks like one.

I've taken the first steps to clean it up, but there remains a lot of work to be done. I tagged a lot of uncited content, and removed a lot more. The majority of the content I tagged as "citation needed" could probably stand to be deleted altogether, but I figured I would give someone a chance to back the facts up.

If we can't get some good citations and a solid encyclopedic tone going, this article will be due for a harsh pruning, and possibly a total rewrite. Matt S. (talk) 02:31, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

70's Image Of Lolly Vegas Misidentified As Brother Pat Vegas In History Section[edit]

In the History section of the article, the 70's image of the late Lolly Vegas has been misidentified as Pat Vegas in the caption beneath said image. The name caption should be changed to Lolly Vegas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Will Sipabitz (talkcontribs) 06:06, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

"Latin" and "Cajun" questioned[edit]

Does anyone proofread this stuff?!?! What makes them 'Latin'??? Why are they native American/Latin here and Native American/Mexican on the page for Tony Bellamy? The 'Almond' Brothers?!? Who are they? 'Redbone' is not a Cajun term by any stretch. Let's not even get into grammar, punctuation and structure. Really? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.22.255.178 (talk) 19:36, 8 May 2015 (UTC)

What!?!?[edit]

"Redbone achieved hits with their singles "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee", "The Witch Queen of New Orleans", "Wovoka", and "Maggie" in the United States, but predominantly overseas."

This sentence makes no logical sense as it stands right now. I think I know what the editor was going for, but I am not certain enough to make the edit. Is the point they enjoyed better reception overseas? Is the point the singles charted higher/better overseas? I'm leaving it in for now instead of just chopping it out. If I get a chance I will dig into this, but if someone else has the time and willingness to do so please proceed.THX1136 (talk) 21:02, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

The next sentence makes even less sense: "Redbone is known and accredited in the NY Smithsonian as the first Native American rock/Cajun group to have a No. 1 single in the United States and internationally." They weren't Cajuns at all: they were from California's Central Valley. Even if they were Cajuns, Fats Domino and Louis Armstrong (and others with roots in Louisiana's francophone community) had #1 singles long before "Come and Get Your Love." I suppose they could have been the first Native American band to chart a #1 single, however.Timothy Horrigan (talk) 01:25, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
Did the edit without a source for verification. I am assuming the source cited in the article covers this aspect, but did not have access to it to verify. THX1136 (talk) 21:33, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

Munsters Theme claim removal[edit]

I removed the claim of involvement with the Munsters TV show theme due to the information provided by this source: https://secondhandsongs.com/work/117434 - accessed on 2018/02/21. While I know this is just one source there is no mention of Pat Vegas being involved with the theme as implied by the original claim in the article. If a suitable source is found to back up the claim it can certainly be restored.THX1136 (talk) 03:01, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

Some more info at this url: https://books.google.com/books?id=LtU2rfMrhAIC&pg=PA90&lpg=PA90&dq=composer+of+the+Munsters+TV+show+theme&source=bl&ots=a6yVOYvZQV&sig=-fuvlZctU8-pasCTTEpJR1ipo_Y&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjU1ri2rbrZAhVEvlMKHcC1B9AQ6AEIwAEwEg#v=onepage&q=composer%20of%20the%20Munsters%20TV%20show%20theme&f=false

It is probable that Pat played bass in the "small studio ensemble" mentioned in the article, but he is not mentioned by name. I've looked at a few other articles without any mention of Vegas. I've also came across a couple of interviews where he claims to have helped with the theme.THX1136 (talk) 20:51, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

No1 or No5[edit]

In the first paragraph it is said they reached No 5 on Billboard Hot 100, yet a bit further it says it is the first native american band to reach No 1 single. I do not understand this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emilpop (talkcontribs) 15:38, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
