Not only is Bruce Broughton
a piece of crap article......
He has composed several highly acclaimed soundtracks over his extensive career, and he has won nine Emmy Awards and has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score
Silverado earned him an Academy Award nomination, though he lost the Oscar to Out of Africa. He has won nearly a dozen Emmy awards.
...it's got the remains of a weird editwar in its history. On 22 February 2007 this edit was the first of dozens of edits (until 2011, MORE THAN FOUR YEARS of history) to be rev-deleted.

This was the edit right after the last deleted one:

I would bet you Broughton paid someone to edit his article, didn't get what he wanted, and made legal threats to the WMF, so they deleted everything to cover it up/punish him/what-have-you.
This is a guy who was nominated for an Oscar and used his position as an Academy Awards executive committee member to spam himself to the rest of the Academy. So they yanked his nomination. A true Hollywood egomaniac. Of course he tried to heel Wikipedia; and of course he failed.
And as usual, it wasn't enough to remove his self-promotion, he had to be humiliated
by an insider via the total removal of all signs of his self-promotion. Leaving obvious traces, in the typical incompetent Wikipedia style (or was it intentional?)
I even know who tried to pull that "at his request" crap---the creator of his personal website, one Amy Stone:http://www.mowa.org/design/home.html
