Wikipedia- Surfin by the Beach Boys
« on: July 10, 2017, 05:04:18 AM »
I added a line about Jan & Dean with a reference from Pig Gold. I'm just tired of Jan & Dean being ignored when it comes to the Beach Boy origins.

Wikipedia is an unreliable platform.

The statement is accurate on its own, but as it stands now you've incorrectly put the line within a direct quote from Brian Wilson, while referencing Gary Pig Gold.

You should move the line. For example, it would be better to put it just before the sentence that begins with, "Brian also incorporated . . ."

Got it done. Thank you Mark. That was a good point. I didn't catch that I was messing up a Brian Wilson quote.
