Thread Name: Chad Mitchell Trio anecdotes?
Subject: RE: Chad Mitchell Trio anecdotes?
My anecdote is from a conversation with Roger McGuinn. My brother had met him in Bakersfield in the 60's, and when The Byrds came to do a concert in Edmonton, Alberta in the early 70's, he invited them over to my parents' house. I remember asking Roger about his experiences with the Chad Mitchell Trio, which, at the time, his memory wasn't particularly positive. He told a story about how Chad Mitchell punched him in the mouth once for using the F*** word.

At the time he also expressed some reservations about the group's integrity in doing those great political songs--but he didn't really give any examples (other than the story above), SO i suspected it had more to do with his own frame of mind at the time. (But then, being a great Chad Mitchell Trio fan, I was biased).
