Re: Not so happy birthday, Bob

I doubt very much that George, Bill and Rick went into it with the best of intentions. They didn't even know about it until they were blindsided onstage after a sound check. Please don't keep trying to look like the good guys in this. You and Marvin and the other guy screwed over the then existing Kingston Trio and never looked back. And please don't say "If you all knew the whole story." If that's the answer you and Marvin keep giving, then friggin' tell the whole story!
Robert. Everyone went into it with the best intentions. There are and were outside forces who negated the plans the Shane’s and myself had set in lotion. Primarily lost was the transition and ongoing largesse of the KT family.
Tom Guard and I sat with Bob and Bobbie and laughed and talked. He was in really good spirits. And funny as ever. Was a wonderful day for Tom and I. Just wonderful.
While I am happy that you made it to another birthday but I am that way to all who reach that plateau.
I am fully aware that music is a business first and that you along with Nick and Dave started this group back in the 50s. So I guess, you have the right to killing the group in 2017. No matter what anyone thinks or says, it was YOU along with Bobbie's signature on the contract that brought the demise of the GREATEST SINGING GROUP of all time.
