I'm very curious as to who those seven ex-members are.

Thanks for the info about the book and for posting the interview.
At least something cheering to be expected this year.

Thanks for sharing!

If that happens to be “Money for Nothing,” but he doesn’t want to sing that, there are days where we’d go, “You know what, man? You gotta do that. You gotta give the people what they’ve given you.” That’s just the way it goes.

I'd love to have footage of that discussion ;D

I think he serviced that as long as he could. I’m pretty far out of touch with Mark now. I don’t know what he’s doing with his recording and live performing. I can only relate to my time with him. I know that where we started on Golden Heart and where I dropped off at the end of my tenure with him, he had transitioned considerably in the direction of more of a folk songwriter kind of guy than a rock & roll guy.

I can't believe he isn't updated on Mark's doing. He probably still meets Glenn and Richard now and then in Nashville. And with all modern techniques, he probably gave some of the latest records a spin or looked up a performance on YouTube, although 2019 and 2005 are worlds apart.

After reading Pick's interview lately, I already suspected Chad's leaving wasn't directly related to Mark. Maybe except for the OES-tour, he does care about his band members.

I read it as there were professional issues as well as family issues, but the professional issues weren’t related to MK.

He says there was a professional problem, but not with MK so could be anything...

He actually says this:

That was personal things that were going on in my life that needed pretty intense attention. It was family-related. It wasn’t music-related. There were some professional issues that were unfortunate, but none of them would I ever direct to Mark


- Firstly, that he had family-related personal things, not music-related. I guess this is what he told MK to leave.
- Secondly, some proffesional issues he didn't direct to Mark. I guess here he means he got offers he had to reject, but not the reason he asked MK to leave.

Thanks for the Chad interview. Very strange, I guess we'll never know what happened.

Seems like he fell out with someone other than Mark? Great drummer anyway. And great that Danny stepped in at such short notice.

As Chad says in the interview, I recall from 2005 that Chad had to leave because of personal family problems and that Danny would take the drums until the RAH concerts, that Chad would be back, but Danny stayed, according to Guy because they felt he was doing it ok and wanting them to stay.

Could it be that back in Nashville Chad started to record and play with Neil Young so he told MK he wasn't to be back or maybe MK told Chad not to come back as everything was ok with Danny, and then Chad accepted to record and tour with Neil Young?

Apparently they are not in contact since that.

Thought this sealed 2-LP copy of Get Lucky (2009) might be of interest to some members. Thanks.
