: Hey Fellow Trio Fans & "Friends"
: of Bob Shane...
: This is just a "late night, out of my
: mind" thought. We know at least this
: much of what went down.
: 1. B&B needed $$, so they "leased the
: Kingston "Brand" to Josh Reynolds
: & one other party we know of.
: It gave the Shanes (in their "golden
: years") some $$ flow with no more
: bookkeeping and headaches. Can we at least
: agree on that small detail?
: 2. The transfer of employees was mishandled.
: Period. So sorry that even took place.
: Luckily, they were served at a sound check.
: 3. If "genetics" were a true
: factor here, then Josh Reynolds is truly the
: "leader", "lease
: holder", so why not pick someone like
: David Peel for "Shanes part. Younger,
: stronger musician, and had already worked
: with Bob in the past. Just makes sense. I
: know there's a sense of loyalty to a cousin,
: but if the person hasn't got the
: "chops"? (and I'm not picking on
: Mike M. here, it's only a wide open
: observation - could be anyone)...
: 4. As for the third member, pick a multi
: talented guy who can sing and pick like
: hell. Have fun and run with the plan and
: don't give a damn. Tim is great but needs to
: stand out more if he's doin' "Johnnie
: Stew"... just sayin.
: Not enough thought put into this because it
: was "family" perhaps, and not
: talent that was looked at that put this
: "new" Trio together.
: I don't know! This is all guess work on my
: part because I ate to much and can't sleep.
: It's Josh Reynolds baby. I like the guy. His
: Dad was OK to me.
: I read somewhere that John August Lee helped
: trained these cats into what they are. To
: bad there aren't more old films or video
: tapes of NBD & NBJ, because the could
: really use them for guidance. John Lee didi
: a good job, still... more time would be
: But personally, I still find the David Peel
: selection intriguing.
: Maybe, Tom Guard would be interested. If
: both Dave, Tom and Josh did this...
: Who knows?
: TR - out!
