A recent comment on your site asked if “Gerald was hard to get along with?” Gerald is a bit “quirky” but who amongst us isn’t? Ye who are without quirk stop taking your Prozac. Think about it. Just to take three or four mostly random examples: Legacy Five has had 4 tenors in 10 years. They have had 1 lead singer, 1 baritone 1 bass and had it not been for the death of Roger Bennett, 1 piano player. Sounds like a tenor problem to me. Greater Vision is about to announce their 4th tenor as well. They have had the same lead singer for 20 years and the same baritone singer for what….17 years? Sounds like a tenor problem to me. Take for instance, Gold City. Never mind. Now check out Ernie Haase. He has lost half a dozen or so members in 7 years. Ernie is a TENOR. Hello? This would be a great riddle of next month’s issue of Highlights magazine. “What is the common denominator in this scenario?” (Is there still a highlights magazine?) It would be interesting to do a bit of research and add up all the changes over the past 5 years and just see where each part lands. I bet tenors are WAY out front.
