Thanks, Bukka. I eagerly await. As for that SIDD fella, he is so full of contradictions. Didn't the Western World label Alexander of Macedonia as "Great"? Calyposnians' sobriquets are full of (self-proclaimed) superlatives: Lord, Mighty, etc.One of them the ENTIRE pan community sees as "THE GRANDMASTER"! I have no argument with that (Kitch is well-deserving of such), and George "Sonny" Goddard is also deserving of the title I bestowed on him. Some see him as the "FATHER OF THE STEELBAND MOVEMENT", and, on examining his legacy, I can understand why so. Once again, thank you for representing TRUTH, and not being willing to compromise pan history, as some other "Grands", "Mightys", "Lords", "Sirs", and (so-called) panists have opted to. Now if Kitch is the "Grandmaster", then read this article, and tell me why would such greatness be threatened by anything other than an equal or one with more power and "greatness"...
