Some might argue that the band in question are indeed a torture device
;) Interestingly I noticed that a Dbpedia-Fbase sameAs link resulted in
one of the bands former guitarists being the sameAs the band....but as
you rightly say that's not your fault/problem but an issue with the
source RDF.

Yes and I think as you say it is certainly (more than) "good enough".
Very useful...and it will be very useful in some work I am about to
start. I can pick and choose the "sameAs" relationships I agree
with/want to use.

Oh dear am I that predictable :) How sad that it was the first URI I
looked up...

Anyway..keep up the great work!
