| Adding EVERY name with the Letter "V" |

      Long-term-project:   The indexing of every separate entry for every artist in every Music Reference Book I own. It would take several lifetimes for me to do it, or many other people working with me to help complete it, so there is no hope that I can, by myself, complete such a task. So I picked a letter at random, "V", and have started adding to the Artist Selection - V page, every artist and group starting with the letter V in the following books, also selected somewhat at random. As every V name in another book is complete, the book title will be added to this list. Those books where EVERY artist is listed in alphabetical order by their last name*, AND has specific birth/death date or group formation date information will be worked on first.
      * = in my opinion, any book or website that lists artists in order by their first name, e.g. all "Arthur last name" entries listed together, are pretty much useless as valid reference sources.
      This is NOT a new project. I have been indexing Music Reference Books since 1991. This is just a continuation of that 26 year project.

      Only books for which at least one alphabetic letter has been completely indexed are listed below. Several hundred other books listed in my bibliographies have had one or more artists or groups indexed, just not a complete letter.

      * Note: in some cases, just indexing a book takes less time than adding a full detailed main entry for an artist/group, so there are some artists/groups who have an indexing entry, e.g. in Musician's Birthdays/Bibliography (V), but with no "Index" link back to an Artist Selection - V main entry.

      A, G, A-G, V, etc. = Every biography/discography entry in this book for the letter(s) noted has(have) been added to the following Musician's Birthdays/Bibliography pages on this site.
     A-Z - link to where every profiled name in this book is listed in one place.
