Thanks Sue. Yeah, they're a real piece of work. And this was all done on the Kingston Trio Facebook page. How classy is that on their part. These guys just can't take a hint. They've got nothing. They can't sing, play, harmonize. And now this. It just goes to show you how their grasping at straws to prove how great they are. And the sad thing is that they really think they're great. And as has happened in the past, I respond to Mike Marvin's posts and he doesn't have the balls to answer me himself, so he sends his little pit bull, more like a little ankle biter, his little toady, Joshy boy, to fight me on line. What a joke these jerks are. And I feel bad for those poor chumps who pay money to go see what they think is going to be the real Kingston Trio.
I was reading the FB thread where you were attacked by Marvin and Reynolds...and while I wouldn't have worded your post the way you did, you had every right to say what you did.
What appalls me is that these two are members of a folk group...they can be divas in their contracts..or even arrogant in their interviews but their attacking your line of work crossed the line.
They strike me as being way too insecure to handle the legacy they paid for. They are the Kingston Trio..and this is how they stand up to any criticism?
God knows, George, Bill and Rick had to deal with critics during their tenure...Roger Gambill too...and even Bob Haworth( from me I'll admit!)
I never saw them attack anyone the way these guys went after you and Al Hobbs today.
It read like some whiny 20 year olds trying to justify why they are much cooler than you....
Al is right, the KT did die in Sept 2017....anyone wanting to book these guys will check their social media profiles and see they aren't that mature to handle criticism and will assume they are difficult to work with....
