Until recently, I always thought Dave played "Scotch and Soda" behind Bob's singing and strumming. Having read the Bush book several times, I now get the idea Buck Wheat played the more sophisticated technical guitar, replaced again by John Stewart. This later fell to George Grove. Did Bob pull back from playing the individual notes while he sang in front of one of the others?
How technically strong were Bob and Nick as guitarists during both the Guard and Stewart eras? My impression has been they fell back and relied on Buck, Dave, John, or George, to support their primary roles, which were to sing and harmonize. Thoughts?
After joining the Whiskey Hill group, was Buck Wheat ever reconsidered as Kingston support persona, or was he too close to Dave to be included?
