Hey Danielle, <BR> Just sent Jenny an e-mail with my answers....... 8-))<P>TomN

04-16-2000, 09:46 PM
<B>Hawk</B><P>Because this survey is being given to many Garth fans across the net in various places, and she's having trouble getting to them all. I asked her if she'd posted it here yet and offered to do so for her, if she wanted. She replied very gratefully saying that she couldn't get everywhere and really appreciated my help. :)<P>Thank you all!! It means A LOT.<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN

I explained to Jenny that we were curious, and she asked me to post this so here's her answer! Poor Jenny! She's swamped. LOL<P>"This idea was suggested to me by someone who works with GB Management. I jumped at the chance to maybe help persuade Garth to do<BR>another CG album. I am also doing interviews on a lot of Country and Rock stations in the US right now about my book, and I am telling them as much as possible how great the CG album was and getting them to play tracks. I am also trying to put down those DJs who are 'dissing' Garth :0)) Would you please be kind enough to post this on PG for me? I have another 150 e-mails to answer !! :0))<BR>Take care<BR>Jenny"<P>So anyone who hasn't answered her please do so. :)<P>Lori<P>N

04-17-2000, 06:24 AM

Lost 'n' Garth

She's "GOT MAIL"!! :)<P>CheriN

04-17-2000, 08:53 AM
I see;<P>The answer is no.<P>It is my position to do nothing to attempt to influence Garth about the decisions he has to make. I believe it is important that the decisions he makes be entirely his own free choices.<P>In addition I repeat I do not use the term "fan" about anyone or anything.<P><BR>HawkN

04-17-2000, 05:12 PM
Well, since she said that much, I can speak a little more freely now...<P><B>Hawk</B><BR>The way I understand it, it's just so Garth can have true, honest feedback from the fans to find out if they want any more Chris. Of course, he WANTS to know what his fans think! That's part of his wonderfulness. We're talking about what kind of CD he will release, not whether or not to move or retire or build a new house or go to the moon. Those things would, obviously, be totally up to him, but since this is the music, I think it's okay that we tell him our feelings on it. He's always wanted to know how we feel about the music. All artists need feedback to know if they're reaching their fans the way they want to.<P>Did that make sense?<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN

04-17-2000, 05:40 PM
Danielle -<P>I am only stating my positions on this not making a judgement about others.<P>I want only the very best for Garth and his family. I am unwilling to promote any type of dependency or confusion during a time when independent decisions sound crucial (given his press releases). It is easy for a star to focus too much on what others want which can be conflicting and based on varying motivations. It becomes too easy to lose their focus. I would want a man who is as strong, capable, and moving toward greater independence as is Garth to continue to find their own direction. So if I err I err on the side of independence, safety and silence.<P><BR>HawkN

04-17-2000, 10:45 PM
<B>Hawk</B><BR>I wasn't taking offense, and I didn't mean to cause any problem, I was just explaining my view, as you did yours. I see what you are saying. Peace. :)<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN

04-18-2000, 01:27 AM

04-18-2000, 01:50 AM
Just mailed - and included the other two questions from the GBox for good measure!<P>Angela xN

04-18-2000, 04:20 PM
Jenny just added two new questions, which (i assume) is what Angela was referring to...<P>Here they are.. please email her your answers to these ones too!<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Arial">quote:</font><HR><BR>1. Would you have liked the Chris Gaines stuff better if Garth hadn't dressed up?<P>a. Still wouldn't have liked the sound.<BR>b. Yes much better<BR>c. No I liked the look and the sound.<P>2. Did you think that Garth was abandoning Country?<P>a. Yes<BR>b. I wasn't sure<BR>c. Of course not.<P>Thank you very much<BR>Jenny<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Thanks, guys. :)<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN

I'm about to answer the next couple of questions now.<P>Hawk<BR>Understand your viewpoint but I did get to read some interesting/strange? background and facts about the book Jenny has written about Garth. She included the following address when she mailed back, maybe you have already visited it but anyway here it is.<BR> <A HREF="http://www.ripplesbooks.freeserve.co.uk" TARGET=_blank>http://www.ripplesbooks.freeserve.co.uk</A> N

Major,<P>I am well aware of the situation and the person. <P>I'm also well aware of how a survey is worded, organized,conducted, credits given, and used.<P>All the more reason to stay out of this as I have chosen to do - I have no ponies in this race.<P><BR>HawkN

04-20-2000, 11:10 AM
This was certainly never intended to be an argument-evoking thread. :(<P>If Hawk or anyone else chooses not to do the survey it is completely their choice.<P>I don't see what Jenny's book has to do with this survey. They are two completely separate things.<P>No one is trying to attack anyone else. Peace, guys.<P>Garth Always,<BR>DanielleN
