Recently there was a Grande Mothers thread, primarily listing upcoming shows, and it has seemingly vanished into the cyber void (maybe because of the listing, dunno)...in it I asked a question since it WAS a Grande Mothers thread.....apparently Bunk was ousted from the band and I have been unable to find out exactly why and I'm curious. If there was an answer I never got to see it. No guesses or opinions please....if you've read it or heard it lay it on me. All I know so far is...whatever the reason Bunk pleaded "for old times sake" to which Roy Estrada allegedly said "that was then, this is now." Soooooo, anyone know just what the fuck happened?

I think it's because he set up another "Grandemothers" group and their was promoter confusion and dropped shows. Don't quote me on this though. I believe details are in Greg Russo's fine, fine, superfine book Cosmik Debris (Son of Revised Edition).

How recent would this revised edition be? I ask because I got the impression (though it could be incorrect) that the ousting wasn't all that long ago...like maybe within the last year or so....but that's just a guess.
