Dear wikipedia people who think you're important, you are annoying the hell out of me with this biography. If you believe it's infringed on a copyright, please show us what was written with the copyrighted page link. Just showing the link does nothing for us to improve it. Thanks. Also, please unlock it, the last time we checked this is an open site, not communist. Thanks. We need to get a bio up immediately, this is one of the most prominent musicians of Hollywood and you're annoying the hell out of us all. Thanks.

- Certainly, the following quote
Steve Schaeffer noted Hollywood recording musician started his career in New York City. At the age of 14, Steve was part of Marshall Brown’s Newport Youth Band, a band made up the best young Jazz players in the New York, and Tri-state areas. At 17 Steve joined the Al Cohn/Zoot Sims Quintet at the famed Half Note in NYC. At 19 Steve joined Doc Severinsons Quintet. At 20 Steve joined Sarah Vaughn and stayed for 2 1/2 years, this band also had Chick Corea featured as Sarah’s pianist. Steve also worked with jazz greats Joe Henderson, Eddie Daniels, Monty Alexander, Bob Sheppard, Terry Trotter, Pete Christlieb, Don Menza and Mike Maineri to name a few artists. Other positions followed with Herb Alpert and the TJB, and Dreams with Randy and Michael Brecker.

Okay, I didn't write that, that's from another user. Can you please put up what I did with the notable filmography? I will have that changed immediately, and I very much appreciate your attention to this matter. We want to follow your rules, not doing this to cause problems. However, with some of the other musicians you have on here, Schaeffer who has done over 1,000 movies and has several large endorsements should be on here. Can what was written and okayed before please be put back up, or must we do all that editing over again?
- Yes, I can revert it back to that and we'll see where we go from there. You'll still need to tidy the article up a little so it's clear why the subject is notable enough for Wikipedia though. Also, if you're logged into Wikipedia while you edit, you can automatically add your signature to your edits in talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~) or clicking on the signature button above the edit window. Thanks! --RedHillian (talk) 01:06, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
That would be great. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it. I'll definitely tidy up the article and explain how notable this very notable person is. However, with the thousands of musicians in Hollywood trying to make it and a short look at his biography and the fact he's done over 1,000 movies it seems pretty evident and reasonable he deserves a page on wikipedia. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Thank you again for your time.
- Thanks - I've also added an under construction notice at the top so the article doesn't get accidently deleted or marked up as a violation of anything again whilst you're working on it - when you're all done you can delete it yourself or let me know here and I'll take it off. --RedHillian (talk)
Thanks, I've put up the band to contest speedy deletion and will be working on the page tonight. I appreciate your help and patience, and we're on top of it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Adastraperaspera22 (talk • contribs) 02:29, 22 September 2008 (UTC)
This is another one that should be linked to my name. I work with Steve often. He is another brilliant musician that should be on here. Send this over to someone in the arts/entertainment department. Have them link it to my name. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Grinwald57 (talk • contribs) 10:14, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
Dave Black (musician) interviewEdit
I haven't had time to check this out and see if it has any relevance. It seems like it's all about which drums he uses (in 1989). I'm hoping there is mention of him in the encyclopedia of musicians and bands on film, but I am waiting for the copy to arrive. menaechmi (talk) 19:20, 11 July 2017 (UTC)
