Rick, time constraints were the overriding deal here. So many questions, so little time....The Chuck Findley's flugelhorn solo that Chis May set up was torpedoed by the total lack of time... I personally put in a direct question to Randy Schmidt (before the event, at the request of the organizers) if he would do a "screenplay" to a big budget Karen biopic...nary a word!! This panel could've been adressing topics from now until Christmas...There just was not enough time.I'm disappointed in this ^^ I specifically asked if someone could at least give props to Paul Grein about how he championed for the Carpenters in all his articles in Billboard...many of which I posted here on the forum for everyone to read. I think it would have made him feel great that we were still reading these articles after all these years and more importantly that what he did made a difference in keeping the Carpenters in the spotlight in music magazines back then. It would have only taken a moment to mention since he was on the panel.
