I've been midly amused by this Wendy woman's constant
lecturing about Arthur Lee, The Love Band etc.
She has not a clue about the situation. Yet
she blathers on and on,ad nasueam. She
falls into the trap of defending Arthur Lee. Oh poor
Arthur,whaaat a genuis. Actually, Bryan Mclean wrote
& shared vocals with Arthur on Love's most famous
song "Alone Again Or", besides great songs like
"Softly To Me", "Orange Skies", & "Old Man". This
is to take nothing away from Arthur, but when she
talks about The Love Band playing old songs as if
they were their own, what do you think Arthur did
for years with Bryan's songs?. Moreover he ripped off
Bryan for royalties for years. For Arthur to split
now (when he's made a tremendous comeback) fits the
pattern. He wouldn't tour or even do Monterey at
the band's peak in '67. Now Ken Forssi is gone,
as is Bryan. It's too late for him to make ammends
with those guys, Johnny Echols joins, and now
Arthur splits. I only hope that Arthur is well,
and at some time can once again perform with Johnny
& the band. It may be too late. But Arthur somehow
is set on self destruct.

hello there. welcome and it's nice to see something happening on the secret base of the board.

What I want to do is to hear those great songs ...
and also to hear arthur - whatever music he's making now. So far I've loved most of the songs he's been associated with whether as writer or singer.

I'm still so glad we had the 3 years of love with arthur lee from 2002 to 2005

Keep on shining

Agree with you Lizzy. Only thinking the other day, this time last year we were looking forward to seeing the band and their great music-there were some great performances.I miss seeing/hearing them live.

Well I agree. I went to a benefit to "Free Arthur Lee" in
Santa Monica back when he was still in prison, at that time
there was little hope that he would ever play again. Yet
once he's released he goes through his most prolific period
in touring since the 60's. I am sure he will have another
day.
