Josh Cobb leaves Gold City
Gold City tenor Josh Cobb just announced on his Facebook page (log-in required) that Gold City has let him go for “‘logistical’ reasons”:
I got a call from Danny’s friend Jason Maise yesterday informing me that Gold City was going to let me go because of “logistical” reasons. As most of you know, I live in Oklahoma City and my wife has worked in the field of genetic research for the past decade. There is not much of that going on in Gadsden, AL so it was impossible for us to move there.
Via Brandon Coomer, the announcement of a replacement is expected today.
The Cobb/Webb/Riley/Riley/Taliaferro lineup struck us as “too good to be true,” and regrettably, it proved to be too good to last. But if Gold City can keep Tim Riley on the road and find a top-notch tenor, they could still rebuild back to greatness. Yet today’s news, on top of the other lineup changes over the last 5 years, puts them back to the starting line in that endurance race.
UPDATE (10/29/10): Gold City hires Brent Mitchell.
