Richard Long for the Wikipedia

This idea was prompted by a discussion on another forum where Richard Long's name came up and the the other guy hadnt heard of him... Doing a search I realized that there doesnt seem to be a reliable link to a good concise bio about Mr Long.

I checked in the Wikipedia online Encyclopedia, but he is not listed in there yet.

Based on the fact that what what I DO know about Richard Long was learnt primarily from this forum, I want to suggest that the board members here collectively write a short and authoritive bio for the Wikipedia.

It seems fitting that someone so hugely influential and almost the "Patron Saint" of this board needs a clear no-nonsense bio for all to read. And the
Wikipedia seems like the perfect place for it!

A democratically approved bio from the Tech Talk Forum!

Cheers, Nick

from Rane's Website

"Long, Richard (1933-1986) Founder of RLA (Richard Long and Associates), dance club sound designers during the disco heydays of the '70s and '80s. Richard's success grew out of his experience working as the sound engineer for the Paradise Garage in Greenwich Village during the mid-seventies. After developing his chops at the Paradise Garage, Richard designed many famous dance clubs including Studio 54, Annabel's (London), Regine's (a chain of 19 clubs scattered around the world from Paris and NY to Cairo) and many others that were the vanguard of the disco era. Indeed, continuing years beyond Richard's unfortunate death in 1986, his designs flourish today in such icons as the Ministry of Sound (London). Further information available at GSANY and see Richard and Alan Fierstein's seminal paper "State-of-the-Art Discotheque Sound Systems -- System Design and Acoustical Measurement," presented at the 67th Convention of the Audio Engineering Society, New York , 1980, preprint 1694.
