Apparently we're only quote adults unquote for voicing our anger. After reading Tony Lay's post, I was going to comment that it looked like the one man, Bert Williams pom pom waving fan club had doubled over night. But I now have to revisit the statistics. It looks like it's tripled over night.
And remember folks, we're now not only deplorables, but we're only "adults"!
: Just to be clear...
: I could care less who's on first, what's on
: second ya da ya da ya da. The anger that
: some of you "adults" show in
: posting on either board devoted to the TRIO
: or Folk Music is "nuts"
: "crude" or just plain
: "sad" regarding the scenario of
: who sued who, or who fired who. It's none of
: our business! So what, there are 3 new
: guys... who cares. Listen to Banks &
: Shane then.
: Life sucks at times. People get fired from
: jobs they love everyday.
: People are born... People die. It's the shit
: that happens in this plane of existence.
: I miss Roger Gambill. He left the group on
: the Lords terms.
: Bob did his best to keep the
: "brand" alive. He worked and
: traveled his ass off till his heart gave
: out. But a "TRIBUTE" group is just
: that, and that is what GBR was for 12 years.
: And who put the "spin" on the tale
: that Bob wanted Two (2) groups out on the
: road? Come on.... that story belongs on CNN.
: My "personal" view is the TRIO
: ended in '67 OR...more 12 years ago, when
: Bob retired. Without Bob, NO TRIO! Just a
: band playing homage to the group that laid
: the "GOLDEN EGG".
: I personally don't believe in
: "karma" either, so don't lay that
: one on me. I was simply laying out a scene
: of life portrayed as it happened. Man, you
: folks take everything so literally.
: So, if I offended anyone...as my old radio
: partner Bruce Cooley (RIP) would say during
: the 20 years we did our morning show...(3
: major markets)...."OH WELL"!
: --Previous Message--
: Interesting post, Tomm.
: I, too, wonder what the reaction would have
: been if certain unpleasant Trio events had
: occurred during the internet age. I imagine
: Dave's departure would have created a
: sensation especially if, as is likely, Dave
: had aired his gripes on the 'Net. I'm sure
: there would have been pro-Dave loyalists who
: would have wanted no part of Stewart. Also,
: there would have been some lively
: discussions when Shane fired Horine and Jim
: Connor (no relation) from the NKT.
: The internet giveth, and the internet
