Just as an addendum to my thought, if Dave offered to finish another album and concerts dates through the end of the year that was a bit of an opening for the Werber, Reynolds and Shane. It was somewhat of a leap to get to Dave saying "It is my way or the highway, I quit !" But I can understand probably Werber let's get rid of him now.
I seem to have read that Dave Guard offered to fill out the dates through the end of the year (1961) and do one more contractual album. This, of course was not done. But what if cooler heads said, "ok Dave let's do that and during that period remain in conversation about the musical future of the KT. Might they have calmed down and even consider some of Dave's suggestions and would Dave have not basically said "it's my way or I quit". Didn't Bob Shane say that in hind insight they might have tried some of Dave's suggestions if he had put it a different way??????
