    Does anyone know how to separate these profiles? There should be a way to seperate them some how. Each of these men deserve their own pages and information. And yes, I already checked FAQ's.

    We seem to have two Charlie Walkers! This is a track by the Country singer born 1926, not the person whose biog is attached - hits include Pick Me Up On Your Way Down, Who Will Buy The Wine, Don't Squeeze My Charmin/Sharmon.
