Re: Rick Dougherty singing with The Limeliters for 3 shows
It's kind of like Washington D.C. New people in, some people out, but nothing gets done.
Josh was the only real connection to the founders, but this lying charlatan Marvin continues to bill himself as Nick's adopted son, which he is not. Someone should really call him on this. But as long as he's in charge of their website, I guess he'll keep living the lie.
Hmm...It's nothing new that "revival" editions of groups are often over-run by trademark complications (an extreme amount of examples are out there - The Guess Who, 4 Aces, The Platters, Drifters, Coasters, etc...), but this "sitcom" tops them all.
Rick Dougherty fills in for Don Marovich in the Limeliters so Don can fill in for the departed Bob Haworth (who Limelighter-Rick had replaced in the KT ten years earlier - I believe Haworth was just too good for the current "marriage" - I saw he mentioned on his own website that changes were in the wind, and that it was a challenge to be playing with "amateurs"); Bob H. filled in for the departed Josh Reynolds (the only REAL connection to the "Founders"), who took the spot Rick Dougherty vacated, who had taken the spot Bob Haworth vacated, who took the spot Nick Reynolds vacated.
In the long run, I can't see this chaos as being any good for the health of this trademark, or the group's legacy (and, I do believe this qualifies as an understatement).
