Untitled[edit]

The article stated that Bishop grew up on a farm "without electricity or running water." My father knew Bishop in college; a good friend of his dated Bishop. He tells me "I do not believe the no running water part... I think I would have heard about it." Feel free to put it back in if it can be confirmed, obviously.68.84.128.134 18:04, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Paul Butterfield's Band[edit]

It says he joined Paul Butterfield's band in 1963, remained with them for 9 years and then went solo in 1968?? That is only 5 years later. Did he leave the band in 1968, or continue playing with them till 1972. If he was still in the band, maybe it needs rewording? 217.171.129.75 (talk) 21:21, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

References belong here, not the External links section. I moved them here which is where they belong. I didn't check these to see if they are appropriate- be careful what you use. Thanks! --Leahtwosaints (talk) 03:14, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Family murdered?[edit]

None of the three references about the murder of Mr Bishop's family members are usable. I know the story is true because I remember it (although I am British, my children went to High School in Concord California). Can anybody help by providing working links as references, please? By working, I mean not "404: Not found" HTML errors, or a complete rather than a partial book reference. ChrisJBenson (talk) 00:06, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
