Just a session musician?[edit]

The article stresses he was 'strictly a session musician' in the 50s but singles under his name were released in the UK by London Records as early as 1954 (eg "Fancy pants", "Jolly Cholly", "Rag-A-Tag") so presumably these were issued first on another label in the US? I slightly reworded part of the article which seemed to suggest that his 1960 hit "Last Date" was his first release (this wasn't even his first for RCA - "Flip Flop and Bop" was a UK single in 1958) but the whole article probably needs changing with more solid facts. At the moment it looks as though he wasn't even a successful session musician until he moved to Nashville in 1955 but this was after his early solo singles.

Is it against Wikipedia policy/custom to say something like[edit]

/sadly, Floyd didn't live to see himself inducted into the Country Western Hall of Fame...etc.

It's so much better that way. It seems it should be okay to make wikipedia more interesting, as long as it's accurate. Many points of view are supposed to be welcome, etc.--Levalley (talk) 01:46, 25 April 2009 (UTC)
