Dear readers, I’ve got a bad case of it. Yes, lately the group appears to have become something of a serially mismanaged hot mess. Yes, abruptly canceling a concert and leaving a vacuum of no information for days, and then putting out a snarky press release whose headline demands that we Stop The Rumors and […]
Reader MM locates a handheld video of Josh Cobb and Gold City reprising Cobb’s signature tune during his debut with L5 ten years ago:

I mean, I know Wilburn and Ladd are trying to be funny and “just joshin with Ole Ernie … we love i’m.” But don’t you think some of the other guys […]
