Micky Lee Soule[edit]

Member of a small number of bands, the best of which enjoyed "very minor fame". Radiant! 11:04, Mar 2, 2005 (UTC)

  • Keep, he's been in at least two bands containing members of Deep Purple, and The Elves apparently recorded 3 albums, meeting the Wikipedia:WikiProject Music/Notability and Music Guidelines . Kappa 13:27, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Notable musician with links to very notable bands. Cnwb 22:20, 2 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. Despite this article's claim, Rainbow and Deep Purple, though not mainstream pop bands by any means, certainly both had a more than ample amount of fame. Deep Purple released arguably the first real heavy metal song ever, "Smoke on the Water" in 1972, and Rainbow had at least two pretty big hits I can remember, and is well-regarded among 70s metal fans. As noted by Kappa, he meets the Notability and Music Guidelines. 23:43, Mar 2, 2005 (UTC)Tuf-Kat
  • Delete, Micky Lee Soule never played with Deep Purple and wasn't on "Smoke on the Water", he was a member of The Elves and the first incarnation of Rainbow on one album before Blackmore sacked him and then they broke it big. A minor thing, his name is Mickey Lee Soule not Micky Lee Soule. Megan1967 00:14, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Aah, I misread the article. No change in vote though, since I think being a member of Rainbow is enough, even if only for one album. Tuf-Kat 01:10, Mar 3, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep and Rename. One of the member of the Elves or ELF was Ronnie Dio and they made two albums before that band became the first lineup of Rainbow when Blackmore recruited them for the first album. Soule then played on a Roger Glover album and toured as part of the Ian Gillan band. See interview on Dio the early years for details. [1] Megan is correct when she notes that the article should be renamed Mickey Lee Soule. Capitalistroadster 10:24, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, no good reason to delete - David Gerard 01:10, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Weak keep. No entry, but he is listed as a member of Elf and Rainbow. Note that they list his name as Micky Lee Soule. Gamaliel 01:18, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
