Sources[edit]

I am very unhappy that I was unable to write a better article, but I'm having a hard time finding sources. The Tribune ran an excellent piece on him a while back, which covers material not covered (unsurprisingly) by his official website. In particular, he stopped playing music for several years before receiving the MacArthur grant, as he was unable to support himself. Also, I think he dropped out of high school...--DCo1 06:06, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

Heh, never mind, I found it.--DCo1 06:14, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

New Chicago Tribune article on Reginald Robinson[edit]

There's a new article in yesterday's Chicago Tribune on Robinson that could be the source for most of the material in this article: http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/ct-ae-0124-robinson-20100122,0,7137744,print.column mennonot (talk)

I've added the article as a reference, thanks. Mudwater (Talk) 02:15, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
