Who is Editing ZZ Top’s Wikipedia Page?

INDIO, CA – APRIL 25: Musicians Dusty Hill (L) and Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top perform onstage during day two of 2015 Stagecoach, California’s Country Music Festival, at The Empire Polo Club on April 25, 2015 in Indio, California. (Photo by Frazer Harrison/Getty Images for Stagecoach).

There have been some changes to ZZ Top’s Wikipedia articles and it just maybe someone working at Apple. Valleyedits, a sleuthy account that follows changes to Wikipedia, found an article on a Best of ZZ Top article with changes. By tracking an IP address, the account was able to determine that someone working at Apple in Cupertino removed the band from the “southern rock” genre.

No word on whether this was something officially done by Apple or just an employee who believes ZZ Top only belongs in the boogie rock, hard rock, blues rock, and Texas blues genres. Have you ever made changes to Wikipedia articles?
