: Some months ago, I broke the news about the
: breakup of the Kingston Trio...or at least
: the change of personnel.
: 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
: 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.
