Quote from: MamaKel on May 22, 2018, 11:29 amThis is why I put these ideas in the universe. I DO think Jim needs his pals around...and hopefully what they create with the tools they have will have way more access to the masses. And of course I want nothing but their happiness. I worry because I care...and I don't want the wizards to lose their magic...

It is in no way a personal indictment, or a critique of their character. I really think Kevin is one of the most gifted musicians I have ever seen, and as kind a person as you could ever meet. I wish him endless success. I just feel the loss (even if temporary) for Louisville.

If I'm onto something here, then perhaps this partially explains the loosely defined hiatus as well. All this being said, if his dearest and closest pals are circling the wagons and helping him get to a better place, then I suppose all is well in the world.

Seems like Jim is in a REALLY good place after seeing him last night. singing new stuff from a huge perspective of confidence and the music is otherworldly.And despite all the speculation the past few months about a "break up", I think I get it now. Jim and Kevin arranged this stuff almost a year ago and they tracked it late last year with Dave, Seth and the girls. I'm pretty sure the MMJ guys were blown away and told Jim to ride this thing as long as he can - I'm telling you all - this album is going to change everything.
