Got to thinking. Did anybody ask George, Bill or Rick if they wanted to retire? Probably not.
That means it was done in an underhanded and backstabbing way. The Marvinettes are no KT.
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....
