User talk:BrianSchweitzer/Bandleader Position Relationship Type Proposal

From MusicBrainz Wiki


The proposed AR is fundamentally only artist-artist; the track-artist addition and related changes made by Hawke should be a separate "Bandleader Relationship Type" AR, of class Performance Relationship Class, not a Musical Association Relationship Class AR (akin to the Composer Relationship Type vs the proposed Composer Position Relationship Type). One can lead a band on a track (or release/RG) without being a bandleader; combining that performance concept into the artist-artist relational concept of this proposal only confuses the meaning of the actual "Bandleader" position. One can lead a band on a track without being a Bandleader. - BrianSchweitzer 07:16, 12 March 2011 (UTC)
