Rick Daly once recommended a movie (now available on DVD) entitled "TAKING CHANCE (starring Kevin Bacon).
Based on a true story and it dealt with the war in Vietnam and AMERICAN VETERANS.
=> I SALUTE ALL OF YOU !!!
Julie + I watched this movie 3 times.
Robert, I would love to get hold of George Grove's Vietnam Memorial album...
=> WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE?
Can you (or perhaps George himself) help me in this regard?
Thank you so much.
: As all on this site, my wife and I were
: Kinston Trio fan from the time of "Tom
: Dooley". However, we did not have the
: opportunity to see them until the early 70s
: with Bob, Bill, and Roger. The next time
: was Bob, George, and Bobby. Continuing with
: George, Bill, and Rick with Bob doing a
: couple of appearances. We were fortunate to
: see GBR approximately 100 times and never
: tired of it. all three are very
: accomplished musicians and singers.
: Probably second only to the original trio.
: Besides being so, they are true gentleman.
: Let me say this. Please remember George was
: a Vietnam era GI as was I. George has a

: While written for Vietnam Veterans, what it

: the Middle East and Afgan.

: >>> HAPPY + HEALTHY 2018 TO ALL
: THANK YOU, GEORGE GROVE
: Rick Daly knows this to be true. I am a
: hardcore original + semi-original KINGSTON
: TRIO fan. I have always worshipped...

: JOHN STEWART.
: Due to the recent fiasco which ended up with
: the betrayal and backstabbing and total
: discard for KT members GEORGE GROVE + BILL
: ZORN + RICK DOUGHERTY....I had a chance to
: revisit this "post-67" rendition

: All 3 guys are professional musicians who
: were gifted with loads of talent and they

: GEORGE + BILL + RICK were LOVED by KINGSTON
: TRIO FANS !!! This explains the pain and the
: suffering and the outbursts by Rick Daly,
: Sue, John Birchler, Sandy Greenberg, and so
: many of you.
: I just wanted to thank GEORGE GROVE for
: giving us KINGSTON TRIO FANS 40 years of his
: life to performing and

: You can teach somebody how to sing or how to

: But you can't teach somebody how to care or

: cares, he is reliable, he is a class act,
: he is a fantastic human being.
: Thank you George for your CD you sent me.
: Thank you for those kind words you wrote me.
: But most of all....
: THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU !!!
