I really don't think the the Young Mr. Reynolds, et al, would do anything to hinder the continuation of this fan site. He would probably have to bring suit against everyone who has ever posted on this site. I can darned well say anything I like, positive or negative, about anyone who has ever been or will become a part of "The Kingston Trio" as long as it does not threaten any said person with bodily harm. It's one of those 1st Amendment thingies.
The last thing that "The Post September 30, 2017 The Kingston Trio" would want to do is alienate "The Pre October 1, 2017 The Kingston Trio" fan base, especially those who were personal friends of the aforementioned members of said " Pre October 1, 2017 The Kingston Trio" who will henceforth be referred to, collectively. as "The Fans & Friends" (TF&F). The FT&F consisting of those individuals who buy "The Kingston Trio" albums, attend concerts and/or participate in "The Kingston Trio" Fan Camps, tributes, bowling tournaments, etc. It must be understood clearly by all parties involved that TF&F has absolute power over the success or failure of any past, present or future "The Kingston Trio" due to the fact that said TF&F PAY FOR THE ALBUMS, CONCERTS, CAMPS, etc. Simply put, if we DO NOT SPEND OUR MONEY, "The Kingston Trio" DOES NOT MAKE MONEY.
Unfortunately, "The Post September 30, 2017 The Kingston Trio" has not managed to win the hearts and minds of TF&F. You can probably figure out the rest yourselves.
To Quote Dennis Miller, "of course that's just my opinion and I could be wrong."
