Impossible to say. I was a huge Dave Guard fan and I was devastated when he left the Trio. But letís face it, the Trio hadnít had a hit in over a year, and thereís no question that John Stewart rejuvenated Shane and Reynolds and several monster hits followed: Where Have All the Flowers Gone, Greenback Dollar, etc.
What if Dave, Bob and Nick had worked it out and Dave stayed in the KT and they tried some of what Dave was suggesting and the "original" KT lasted the whole 10 years until 1967. Would the KT name have lasted in musical history better than it has. Like it seems Peter, Paul & Mary has. I think because of Bob Shane carrying it on it helped for the KT legacy. After all the "original only last from 1958-to early 1961 not that many years.
