Jonathan Wilburn’s departure from Gold City several weeks ago got me thinking about key personnel. After Jason Waldroup’s departure yesterday, I revisited the topic. What group members, not part of the ownership / management of the group, are so identified with a group that their departure would be felt as much as Wilburn’s with Gold City, or Waldroup’s with Greater Vision?
Ironically, my initial top five draft included Jason Waldroup (as well as Rodney Griffin).
- Kim Hopper – Hoppers
- Mike Holcomb – Inspirations (I’m not sure if he’s technically part of the group management or not)
- Rodney Griffin – Greater Vision
- Eric Phillips – Mark Trammell Trio
- Arthur Rice – Kingdom Heirs
Try naming a top five or ten. It will be interesting to see who we come up with.
