Bill & List mates:

I guess he doesn't know Kenny G. ;-) VBG.

Bill and Larry Walton received the entire story of this tragic episode. It
was a previous article about 4 times as long as the one I posted. If anyone
wants a copy, write me off list. Put "Audubon Quartet" in the subject line
so I recognize it in my spam hold file. I will then send you the article.

It is heartbreaking . . . and a good lesson for "working" small group bands.
If you fire someone, do it carefully and correctly.
