Removed ProD[edit]

I have removed the proposed deletion from this page. While the current article isn't independently sourced, there are sufficient sources, even online, to show his importance. E.g. [1] (La Libre Belgique, a Walloon newspaper, discussing a Flemish artist): "une des principales figures de la scène rock belge" ("one of the major figures of the Belgian rock scene"), in the middle of a long article about him. He wa e.g. also interviewed at Radio 1 and Studio Brussel, two branches of the Flemish national radio[2][3], and by the Dutch radio VPRO[4]. Dutch magazine Oor also considers him an important figure in the Belgian popscene ("belangrijke figuren in de Belgische popscene")[5]. Fram (talk) 08:17, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Ref1 is good, ref3 is unreliable (per their FAQ page), and ref4 glows suspiciously because it's written by volunteer editors (though VPRO appears more reputable on the whole). And the quote from Oor (ref5) actually expands to "Als we denken aan belangrijke figuren in de Belgische popscene, denken we natuurlijk aan Tom Barman en Stef Kamil Carlens. Maar vergeet Rudy Trouvé niet." (the important Belgian pop figures are Barman and Carlens, Trouvé is usually forgotten). Some of these are good finds, but with the unreliable sources aside, the argument is that Trouvé is not independently notable with enough reliable sources to support an entire encyclopedia article. czar · · 15:07, 23 April 2013 (UTC)
Your translation of the Oor quote is wrong. It's not "Trouvé is usually forgotten" but "But don't forget Rudy Trouvé." This is of course nearly the opposite meaning of what you made of it. So even ignoring Ref 3 and 4, we have Refs 1, 2 and 5, plus his actual contributions to two notable bands and a split album with another very notable musician. Fram (talk) 07:26, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
Let's continue this at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Rudy Trouvé—easier to keep the discussion in one place. czar · · 15:13, 24 April 2013 (UTC)
