I joined just to fix an error on one of the greatest banjo players I know. Someone posted in 2010 that Dale Whitcomb had died. He is very much alive and plays as well now as he did with Red, White & Blue(grass). He has been in several bands locally and is just a nice man. The one who died from the original group was Grant Boatwright, who passed away a few years ago. Grant had played some with Neal Young and is on the Prarie Wind album and was in the video. He is also in a video of Murdered By Love on YouTube. For many years he also did some work with Willie Nelson and got Independent Producer of the Year for an album he produced. Everyone else from the band is still alive and kickin'!!

Glad that you addressed this rumor about Dale. I had not heard the incorrect rumor that Dale had passed away.

About a year ago the same rumor was floating around about me. Who knows how these things begin.

Forever grateful for the kindness and encouragement that you, Grant, Dale and David gave me in the early 1970's when I was trying to learn to play.

Warm regards, Mike Mason
