I recall reading a fascinating anecdote about how KWS met Stevie Ray Vaughan at a concert, which was a "life-changing" event for the young musician. If you know the details please add it here. -- Delsource(talk) 12:28, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I changed the stub class from "US Guitarists" to "Musician" in the hope that its audience will increase and someone with more information and experience than I will expand and improve the article. I'm not going to die in a ditch about it, (and if I have broken or bent any rules or protocols then please revert) but I think this gives it a better chance of being picked up more quickly. -- Delsource(talk) 12:31, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
I just cleaned up a lot of POV problems and unnecessary junk about the management company, (who worked there, how his dad became part of it, ect, ect.) Which leads me to wonder... and haven't got the time yet, since I'm trying to find more info on Derek Trucks and ESPECIALLY The Derek Trucks Band (a little shameless begging for help with another blues artist!).. but I gotta wonder if a lot of the stub wasn't sheer copyright violation. So, please somebody, check, make sure we aren't assuming at the beginning here that it's all O.K. I've seen whole articles built on the foundation of a stub or start article that was really copyrighted someplace else. Thanks for helping out here. --leahtwosaints (talk) 19:23, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
