The "Last.fm" description of Ron Gonnella has been lifted from one of my sites without attribution. I guess that’s what they do for all their material.

Last.fm descriptions are a wiki, so it could’ve been added by a lot of people— the interesting thing, now that I look at the wiki source at http://www.last.fm/music/Ron+Gonnella/+wiki/edit , is that the person posting it did INCLUDE a link back to www.nigelgatherer.com/perf/fiddlers/gonel.html in their "source" field, but the site doesn’t display the source field. While it’s not entirely wrong, I’m going to edit it to add quotation marks and a citation.

Citation added — the artist bio displayed on theSession may take a couple of days to be fixed, since the API will need to refresh, I imagine.

Thanks for that, Ben!
