Roy Webb misses EHSS Live DVD Taping

Though I was aware of the fact that Ernie Haase and Signature Sound and the Gaither Vocal Band were taping a live joint DVD on Wednesday, I didn’t watch it online since I’m not a $65-a-year member of the website.

But I did just go over to the Signature Sound message boards to gauge fan reactions. It seems that the general feel over there is that it was a nice concert but more subdued than they expected.
The big news of the evening is that pianist Roy Webb was absent. There were several different rumors about health problems, but no official word as to what caused the absence.

Given the importance Signature Sound places on their live videos, the health issues (or whatever it was) must have been pretty serious for Roy to skip.

  1. There is reason as to “why” on EHSS’s Message Board. I would encourage you to check it out and pray for Roy Webb and his family.

  2. Roy Webb is such a vital part of Ernie Haase and Signature sound that the concert was just not the same without him. I lost my desire to own the DVD, after being so dissapointed that Roy was not there. He is very important to the program, and was greatly missed.I am praying he will soon be back, and I wondered if Gordon Mote having top billing made a difference.
