Re: Question on Mike Kirkland
Mike was going thru a very difficult time, I've been told, in 1967-68. He'd lost a child somehow (death) and he had also damaged his vocal chords. In 1969 the group's popularity was waning (as was that of other folk groups - The KT had disbanded in 1968) and I think Mike figured that he'd had a good ride. He later went into the field of substance abuse counseling.
