Fair use rationale for Image:Martyrobbins.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Martyrobbins.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 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 uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 04:51, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Country or Western[edit]

Wouldn't Marty Robbins be Western music (North America), not Country Music? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.17.140.153 (talk) 21:23, 6 January 2011 (UTC)

Unsourced information[edit]

The following information is unsourced:

  • The Grateful Dead performed "El Paso" live more than 385 times between 1969 and the group's 1995 disbandment. [1]
  • Elvis Presley performed "You Gave Me A Mountain" over 500 times between 1972 and 1977
  • The University of Texas at El Paso asked for and received permission from Robbins to use a fast-paced version of "El Paso" as the university's fight song.

Can anyone provide citations? - Tbsdy lives (talk) 10:28, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

First popular song with electric guitar distortion?[edit]

The article says that "'Don't Worry' has what is recognized as the first popular song with electric guitar distortion effects, played as a unique sound on a malfunctioning tube amplifier." Can anyone verify that this is true? - Tbsdy lives (talk) 10:32, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Yes it is true. Grady Martin was the guitar player as well. Grady Martin as Grady Martin & The Slew Foot Five. (Starman005 (talk) 11:48, 15 November 2009 (UTC))
Both the Link Wray and Ike Turner article contradict this, describing how damaged amp speakers were used prior to 1960 for distortion. "Don't Worry" perhaps was the first with electronically produced distortion, but certainly not the first with distortion of some sort. Wschart (talk) 02:52, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

What happened to the picture of Marty Robbins ?[edit]

It was there some time back and now it's gone. (Starman005 (talk) 11:49, 15 November 2009 (UTC))
