In another post, I said that September 23rd, 2017 was the day that music died.
After listening to the interview (I finally got enough time to listen to it), my thoughts about the day music died have been re-enforced. While they do have a decent gift of gab, their musical talent is totally lacking. None can play an instrument to a professional level. The trio, until now, have had world class banjo players starting with Dave and ending with George. I did not hear any picking of banjo except on Tom Dooley and that was very bad. It sounded like all guitar playing was strumming. On the vocal side, all three are weak and none have any range. I have heard better from college groups and a lot better at Fantasy Camp.
I know that they are trying to play up the part of Nick, but if memory serves me correctly, Nick was the last to become a member and was never the lead person. It seems his favorite thing was staying drunk most of the time and he never made sound checks, etc.
Yes, I am sad...sad for the Legacy of the Trio and how it is not being taken into the future based upon the past.
