Re: I Can Actually Laugh Now
Hello George, I posted those links to let everyone know that the fake news is alive and well courtesy of you know who. All of the articles are BS as far as I'm concerned. He must think the 100k allows him to rewrite history as well. The Kingston Trio ceased to exist after you, Bill and Rick performed together the final time. Your four decades of contributing to the Kingston Trio legacy will never be forgotten. Best Regards, MTABob
If there are any students of music, music history, or some people who are not steeped in the simple objectivity of the truth, let me correct at least one element of one of these articles: "...George Grove, who played with the band from 1977 to 1983." I performed as a principal member of The Kingston Trio from 1976-2017. That's forty-one years, not six. I am very proud of my years in and contributions to The Kingston Trio, all of which were done above board and honestly, the Hollywood Reporter notwithstanding. I mention this simply because once something is in print, especially including the sometimes-erroneous information on Wikipedia, it tends to be both believed and used in other printed materials. After that it becomes somebody's truth. I would like for my contributions to be honestly reflected, without ego or embellishment on my part but also without "marketing ploys" by others.
