The Good Brothers have today’s almost forgotten track

I have been a Good Brothers fan since the first time I saw them at Smale’s Pace in London Ontario way back in 1970…they had begun their recording career as James and the Good Brothers, working with such as The Grateful Dead, but when James left the twin brothers, Brian and Bruce Good, added younger brother Larry on banjo, and pursued a version of bluegrass that pre-dated what became Newgrass, albeit heavily influenced by LA’s The Dillards…almost immediately we became close friends, and that friendship, and my affection for their music, continues to this day and, likely, will continue forever…great musicians and great people, and what else can I say…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.

Agreed Randy, though if they’d been born the Fine Brothers, would we think they were related to the Three Stooges?
