No independent sources to establish notability. Rads more like a bio/self-promotion piece. Wkharrisjr (talk) 12:39, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep. The nominator has greatly overstated Rook's non-notability. The name "John Rook" isn't readily searchable because it combines a common first name with a regular English word. Try searching this way. This individual has appeared in memoirs by Tommy James and Rush Limbaugh, and has been cited by magazines (eg Billboard) and awarded by industry associations. IMHO, needs improvement but meets WP:CREATIVE. --→gab 24dot grab← 15:08, 14 June 2012 (UTC)
