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...

U TELL' EM ODW, the LEVEL OF PROFESSIONISM IS DISRESPECTFULL...

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..

Thanks ODW my brother, I've seen that portfolio before where the "Antiguians" were some what claiming to be the creators of the first steel band, where their dates are inaccurate, I had informed WST about it and that it needed correccting, they informed me that they would, as for "Art Jardine" I met him in 1963 when we Pan Am North Stars was  on our first TOUR through the Caribbean, very good pan player he was, an the photo in question IS, "Crossroads" from "Quamina Street St James", with Winston "wolf" King leader tuner arranger, this photo was in the 1950s 1955 to be accurate, the individual to the left is none other than my neighbour "Rannie Smith", who I've known since 1952 who was also playing in Cairo, but Crossroads  played "African" that year,  and I know it well because I was 7 years old at the time, he scared the sh... outa me when he came out of his yard, he was also responsable for me playing pan in Cairo in 1956, when I was at pratice he would "Leslie" look Yo "Gran Mother coming hide", so thanks for the info ODW, it just confirm my suspicion...

ODW; what band is that with the red and yellow painted pans? it seems like I know these two single strumming pan players, one who is now deceased...

ODW; I like Nestor Sullivan approach, but he lacked substance, he was somewhat incoherent, not in sequence, when he mentioned  "Sonny" Roach where Roach returned to Trinidad due to illness, let me clear something up while I'm on this issue, pan has 6 inventor and innovators, they R, Carlton "sonny" Roach the original inventor, the ping pong, the strummer or single strumming pan, and the tune boom, Williams the 4ths & 5ths technology, or spider web, the double pan, triple cellos, quad cellos, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,  and 6 bass sets, pan on stands, on wheels, the big tenor, double seconds, 3 cellos, quad cellos, and 6 basses all home made oversize drum, Neville Jules the Cuatro or Guitar pan, the double tenor Percy  "lizard" Thomas, and Herman "rock" Johnston the "Echophone and Seven Basses", the "Invaders" tenor pan with F# in the middle was by Herman La Careo / Gomez formaly of "Oval Boys", then there's  the James "bassman" Jackman modulated  Invaders tenor pan from D, in my book "The ORACLE" much more is disclosed...

ODW my brother, don't worry, I'm the St James North stars Steel orchestra Enterprise, Syndicate appointed PAN ACTIVIST, in the process of AWAKING the "PHOENIX" to start a STEEL PAN REVOLUTION, which has already began, with a United States Supreme Court INDICTMENT, of Brian R. Copeland, where he Patent an already U.S. Library of Congress COPYRIGHTED item, S.N.S.E's 4ths & 5ths Technology on the "TENOR PAN"...

Well said ODW, it's a pity that most people don't (define/know/ hear or see) things the way they R,  preferably to the way they think it should B, like US...

ODW; my brother that photo in the Botanical Gardens was taken in 1966 after the Music Festival, the photo with the Pan American plane in the background and member in the front is for the 1963 album with "Voices of Spring" et al, the one with the "PAN" on the cover is the 1965 recording with "Hold On To Your Man, etc etc, we have about 10 or more recording that has not been released, one with the Marrionettes Choir with Joycelyn Pierre conducting, other pieces like "Waltz of the Flowers," etc etc ...

ODW: it was Albert Gomes, who first protected  "Sonny" Roach and others 1936 in St James when the police was beating and arresting them for beating on dust bins in the streets, also it was Lennox Pierre, him being an attorney and Andrew "carlyle' Karr, who started the Steel Band Association in 1950 that evolve the TASPO, sending for Lt Joseph "nathanial" Griffith to arrange and conduct the ( Trinidad All Steel Percussion Orchestra ) with Mc Bernie and Farquhar supporting...

ODW my Brother; leah meh run this by U, after winning the second panorama in 1964, before the US tour Ed Sullivan Show and Carnegie Hall, at a PNM meeting St James Boy's School on George Cabreal St, Pan Am North Stars preformed, after the meeting the Honorable Prime Minister summon me as he had meet me at the first Independance Ball in 1962, we dialogue for about half an hour on "Pan" being a curriculm in the class room, my response was yes, our panyard is like a class room at night rehearsing, two weeks later he came to our yard to dialog farther on the subject, this time Anthony Williams were present, and the details was worked out, by 1973 thru 1977 Anthony Williams and "Bertie" Marshall was on the ( CARIRI ) projects UWI St Augustine, hard at work untill Mr Rudolph Charles showed up, Williams files of schematic diagrams and other documents started to disappear, and his work sabotage, he knew who it was when, a drum he was making for a piece by Johann Strauss called "Die Def ledmus" ? where a bat leave it's cave at night to feed, something like a "Vampire Bat" flapping it's wings sound came out of the drum with a cone shape end, the next thing Williams heard was that, Rudolph Charles had invented a "Rocket Bass", then Williams Quadrophonic diagram also disappeared, Williams went and told Dr Eric Williams what was happening and that he was leaving the project, that was when Dr Williams shut down the project, that was Y he shoot down "Bertie" Marshall idea of the Government funding another project, they had already done that... still havin problems with the forum thread.
