ODW my brother, I've surgested to the New Visionaries that, Keith Diaz has violated every one of the Constitutional By Laws of the Act No 5 of 1986, an IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE, which will remove him from office, via a Legislative Proposal to the Prime Minister and the President of T&T office, a FINANCIAL AUDIT will be warranted, a mandatory proceedure, that will do the TRICK...

ODW; do u really believe that 75th anniversary rubbish? the only thing that is accurate there in the Boysie Singh issue,  Invaders derived from "Oval Boy's" in 1949, who was a dust bin band untill 1946, Oval Boy's derived/came from "Green Eyes and Katsenjammers" dust bin bands  in 1945, how could they be celebrating there 75th anniversary, I personally heard Ellie Mannette on "Gayel" TV in T&T saying that HE, started Oval Boy's in 1938, when their was only ONE dust bin band with paint pan "ping pong, and bugle, playing melody, with bamboo tamboo sticks etc,  from St James that band was Harlem Nightingales, and in 1939 the "Alexander Rag Time band" arrived with fake music sheet's on the road, I question everything these people is saying, because it's not TRUE, for me, from the depth of truth, knowledge is free, the mind is without fear, and the head is held high, so ODW my friend, these people R LYING to U... my 87 year old "MOM" say's I should keep what I know to myself...

WELL SAID ODW, of course U R not emotionally blinded, that's because U can see the forrest AND the TREE"S, as for the Patent Right's, and as CEO of St James Northstars Steel orchestra Enterprise ( SNSE ), I can safely say that NO lawyer,is gonna/can litigate the patent right's, Reason's Y (1) the 4ths & 5ths techonology derived in 1949/50, and was Design Patent, Trademark, where Copyright is automatic as the Copyright Act has jurisdiction over all Design, Patent, Trademark, and Moral Rights etc, all are OWNER PROPERTY RIGHT'S, according to the Copyright Act ( Chapter 82:80 ) section (2) to (5), the Author/inventor of a work is the person who creates it and he, in this case "Anthony Williams", or his employer, in this case SNSE, is normally the first owner of the Copyright, which will last untill 70 years after author's death,   there are also Joint Author Ship and Collective works Right's, of this technology, as a Patent CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED, BUT a Copyright can, that is Y Brian R. Copeland et al/and others is owing SNSE $73 million in triplecate, when they failed to file a timely defense, and where they had THEIR JUDGE throw out / dismiss our claim, implementing OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE after SNSE had already file for JUDGMENT, so ODW I know what UR saying man...

ODW, I almost forgot that, I heard him saying on " Local TV", saying that he Ellie started "Oval Boys" in 1938 when there we no "Oval Boy's" as yet,  as it was his older brother Milton"ossie" Mannette and his nephew Herman Gomez who started the band in 1946, personally, I DO NOT LIKE LIERS, A LIER COULD THIEF, and A THIEF COULD KILL...

ODW, just got your response comment, what father of the modern day steel pan ??? Ellie did'nt invent anything either, the Invaders tenor pan with F# in the middle, was created by his nephew Herman La Carieo - Gomez his older sister's son born in San Soci Toco, the double second he copyed / forged from Anthony Williams while on tour with TASPO, U can see Ellie sitting in front of Williams in the TASPO photo, Williams said he/Ellie, was always looking back at his pan's, Andrew "pan" De Labastide confirmed in to me 1979 at his home in Inglewood CA, with Robbie Greenidge present, and "Theo" Stephens in Florida 1994 with Clive Chaman of Silver Strings Combo, and bass guitarist for the "Jeff Beck" rock band a witness to that conversation, you see ODW, I know alot about the men who actually did, men like Roach, Williams, "percy" Thomas, Jules, Gomez, Barquin, "cecli" Ward, even Lt Joseph " nathanial" Griffith from TASPO, but I know alot more about "Ellie" than even he think's, he doesn't even know that he and my "Mom" are first cousin's, both born in San Soci Toco the same year my Mom in March, and him in November of 1928, so I know exactly what U R saying ODW..
