Dates/ages wrong[edit]

  • The article says Pokey saw Bill Monroe at age sixteen. Bill Monroe suffered a stroke in April '96 (and didn't perform afterwards, until his death in September), so for Pokey to be sixteen his date of birth must be april 1981 at latest, not 1983 as the article states at the top. If he was born in '83, he was 13 at most in April '96. That, or "saw" must be interpreted here as "heard" (in which case "heard a recording of" or or "saw a recording of" would be better).
  • The article states that Pokey was 17 after graduating in 2001. That matches his year of birth being 1983, but again does not match with seeing Bill Munroe at age 16.
