This article was flagged for Conflict of Interest in February 2008 after its creation by someone with the same user name as the article's subject. Since then there has been a vast number of edits to the article, predominantly by unidentified IP users. Among the many edits by 18.104.22.168 on 21 July 2008, one was the unexplained removal of the COI notice. I've reinstated it in the absence of evidence that the concern has been addressed.

Further to the above, I've tagged the article for reference improvement. Currently, the article has some references, but with no indication of which verifies what text; and I suspect a good deal of it is unreferenced. I'd especially like to see citations for those zillions of claimed influences in the Technique and equipment section. Gordonofcartoon (talk) 22:13, 22 October 2008 (UTC)
