John Hammond is a very talented and diverse musician. I'd like to see this page expanded. For starters, I've added some information on his collaborations with other artists. --buck 22:04, 4 August 2005 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Johnhammonddobro.jpg
Image:Johnhammonddobro.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
Fair Use Photo
I added a photo of Steve Freund that is CC-BY-SA in accordance with the Wikipedia requirements. There shouldn't be a need for another photo for some time, at the slow rate this article is growing, but if there is a need, feel free to ask me to provide more photos. --Leahtwosaints (talk) 19:26, 25 October 2009 (UTC)
A previous editor rightfully removed "super" from "super wealthy famed Vanderbilt family" but also should have removed "famed", since the usage is awkward. So I looked up the article on Cornelius Vanderbilt, which described the family as "prominent". Then I looked up the citation to confirm that Hammond was a descendant of William Henry Vanderbilt. He was, but as the source also noted, William was the eldest son of the more notable Cornelius, the family's founder. So I substituted Cornelius for William, indicated who he was, changed "wealthy famed" to prominent and changed the url to display a preview that links to the supportive text.

This was added in the Marriages section; I've moved it here for discussion and sourcing.
- The information above appears incomplete. Based on longstanding personal knowledge, Hammond was married sometime during the seventies to Peggy Hammond, and has a lovely daughter from that marriage, Amy. I am far to lazy to find a citation for this, but trust me, it is true. Perhaps a more motivated wiki enthusiast can find the correct citation. ~RR~
