|I think Brent and Mo are still on board for now with more gigs confirmed?|

|Anybody heard any news on the Hamish/Eliot/Klyde/A. N. Other, yet?|

|Klydes rejoined Hall and Oates. I do know Brent and Mo and their respective credentials (esp. Mo's) are second to none (Mo's CV includes Ray Charles, EW&F, Michael Jackson, Maxwell, Roberta Flack to name but a few). Not sure they are anything but a stop gap though - surely makes more sense for the band to find a single guy who can both sing and play bass/keys/gtrs... which shouldn't be that hard in this day and age, lets face it. I could name ten guys from London who could do a fine job (not that they will be looking for a Brit, of course)|

|Another great post Marc. And hey.....is it just me..or is Fred (sans the John Lennon glasses) looking more and more like Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs after all...was an artist (calligraphy)....he reimagined machines and tech...and forced them to be works of art instead. Demanded creativity and excellence. Just as Fred does. |

Thought I'd check out Brent Carter and Morris Pleasure, who Freddy mentioned above, as I'd not heard of these guys before, and they're really very good as you'll see from the clip below. I'm sure they'll fill the gap admirably, especially with the addition of the trumpet (after all, didn't AWB start out with Mike Rosen on trumpet?). Question for Freddy - will they be on a UK tour next year (hope so)?
Since the touring year is coming to an end, we will take time to consider and select who will be replacing our friend, and we'll be checking out a few talents whom people have brought to our attention. In the meantime, the Atlanta duo of Brent Carter on vocals and multi-instrumentalist Morris Pleasure will more than fill the gap, and we are looking forward to some exciting gigs with them in the band. We wish Klyde all the best with his career from here onwards and thank him for his great contributions to the Average White Band and its ever-growing legions of avid supporters.

|Sad news indeed.|
I Was there for Klydes first ever UK show!
A big thank you for coming to the UK and playing for us.
The two live albums will stand testament to your time in the band.
Wishing you all the best for the future.

|I love Klyde...seen him with AWB several times...a real stand up guy. I will miss you Klyde for sure!!|

|Klyde was great....and I hope he comes around every now and then with the band....and cameo's. Whatever album he is making....I hope gets promoted and sold here. The best of luck to him.|

|This is a huge loss. Klyde is a fine singer/performer and a real gent. It seems to me that AWB have been very fortunate to have replacements of the calibre of Eliot and Clyde. I hope Alan and Onnie take time to find a young buck with everything to prove rather than go for a safe option.|
Thanks for everything Klyde.

I am looking forward to seeing all of you next Saturday night at Jazz Alley. I hope there will be an opportunity to let Klyde know in person, how much I have enjoyed his music over the last eight years.
