Centurion card[edit]

I have deleted "Hooper has the Centurion Card". I don't think we need to list all Nellee Hooper's possessions. I'm happy for others to restore it if they have a quote of him saying how pleased he is to have one. (Chorleypie 11:37, 26 November 2006 (UTC))

Plagiarism[edit]

Please note the brazen plagiarism from All Music Guide in this article. To name only the most obvious examples:
AMG: "Producer and remixer Nellee Hooper was behind some of the most successful and inventive dance-oriented pop music throughout the late '80s and on through the '90s."
Wikipedia: "He has been behind some of the most successful and inventive dance pop music throughout the late 1980s and on through the 1990s and to the present."

AMG: "Hooper came up as a DJ, as a member of the Wild Bunch -- the Bristol-based collective that would develop into Massive Attack."
Wikipedia: "Hooper began his career as a DJ and as a member of the Wild Bunch, the Bristol-based group that would turn into Massive Attack."

AMG: "Steady work continued into the early 2000s, and he received a Grammy nomination in 2003 for his work on No Doubt's Rock Steady and Lamya's Learning From Falling."
