Re: Kingston Trio The First 60 Years
Oh...Marleen, I think you meant Nikki Gary...I know the Marvinettes are vindictive but I don't think they'd sue Nikki Sherwin...
As for the rest of this whole thing....Several people have said what I wanted to say..I will say this...I have a bias against Haworth for reasons that date back to that fateful year of his firing.
Some actually think our interactions on Crossroads instigated his firing. I am not sure about that but I can say this, I recall reading on Haworth's OWN board that he felt BAD for what happened to Bill, George and Rick..so, I''m sure he's not doing a victory dance over their musical demise.
I don't recall anybody suing Bob H over any of it. THAT's what really irritates people, the lawsuit against GBR and Nikki Sherwin.
Yes Craig, Exactly, that is right. The other board went crazy when that happened. Shane came on the board, and asked, don't you think I know how run my business? Even Alex Hasaliv came on the board to complain about how unfair it was.
I mentioned this on Crossroads when all the commotion about the new group consumed the board for awhile. I said, this is just like the firing of Bob Haworth. Ken didn't like it. It's a ood ting I didn't say it reminds me of RIZ days.
Guys, I don't like what happened to George, Bill & Rick. Not one bit.
It was wrong as wrong can be!!!!!!!
BUT, if I remember correctly ----
Wasn't Bob Haworth also "blindsided" when Bob Shane fired him and suddenly replaced Haworth with Rick Dougherty?
George Grove & Bill Zorn wanted Bobby Haworth gone, yes?
(Karma, anyone?) :>((
Very true!!! Sadly The Kingston Trio became history as GBR exited that stage in Asheville last September!
They went out in style, to the thunderous applause and cheers of thier fans and friends!
TRUE THAT, Rick!.....Joe P
Supposedly, something like this was mentioned a year or more ago when the PBS special ran The Kingston Trio Celebration. It was said that there was going to be a second PBS Special. Maybe this is it. One can only hope. I don't agree with the title though. It's not the first 60 years. It's the only 60 years. It ended last September.
On Rick Dougherty's facebook there is a posting August 17 That there will be a TV special The Kingston Trio The First 60 Years, anybody know anything more about this?
