Emin calls Violet Cold as his project in the interview. Not sure about calling himself “its member” though.
Turns out, we already have an entry for Emin Guliyev (Violet Cold original member) and it’s connected as “legal name” to Violet Cold (@Mr.FREAKS created this entry recently and I didn’t notice). Isn’t it a solution? Or we still should transform Violet Cold to a person? Or maybe “Emin Guliyev” should be an alias for Violet Cold?
If we transform Violet Cold to a person then how do we specify its begin date? For a person it is a birth date (Emin Guliyev’s?), but we have a group begin date - 2013. What’s with that?
Another couple of fun facts. On his personal page Violet Cold is specified as a “workplace”. And on the official Facebook page Emin is specified as “band member”.
Okay, I’ll add some examples on my own, if you are interested in discussion.
- Example of a person with a music material for me - Antti Martikainen - he is a Finnish composer, writes music on his own and under his name, doesn’t pretend to be a band or a project.
- Blaze Bayley is a person (a real human). He created a group Blaze - entered as a group in our database. Then he renamed his group under his own name - Blaze Bayley - entered as a person in our database. An interesting moment that he has live members and even had permanent ones (check metal-archives page). So, is Blaze Bayley a person type artist? Or a group? Or there should be two entries: Blaze Bayley as a group and Blaze Bayley as a person and original member of that group?
Burzum is a well-known group - a solo project of Varg Vikernes, entered in our database as a group. It has begin and end dates (Varg is alive but decided to end the project). Should it be a person? What with dates then? This situation seems to be similar to Violet Cold for me.
