Re: What if DG stayed with the KT
Of course it's all hypothetical but, I'd have liked to see them take a much needed hiatus in about 1961, "Re group" so to speak and give it another go after that. Us wannabees can only imagine the kind of pressure that had to have built up. Being somewhat egotistical myself, I can identify.
If we'll recall the "Eagles" did exactly what I'm suggesting here and...the rest is history. Just my humble guess of course....
What if Dave Guard didn't leave the KT in 1961 and even if Nick and Bob adopted some of his musical suggestions/demands. Would the Kingston Trio have lasted longer? My opinion is that they would have had as much or more popularity they had with John Stewart up to 1964 but that the Beatles and the British invasion still would have devastated folk in general and the KT.
