Nor do I.
Quick thoughts on stuff mentioned:
Bobby & Jerry - we all know when off the road many bandmates don't hang plus each had their side band
Bobby & Hunter - seems his writing style was as unique as his progressions and yes it did frustrate Hunter who liked the traditional style like Jerry but I never read any bad blood out of it! In fact Barlow says it's hard to write with Bobby. However, it seems to me that Bobby get phrases or concepts but needs lyrics to really put a song together while I think Jerry came with more complete musical compositions.
Bobby & Band - all sources indicate trouble when the band was moving from R&B especially with Pig & Bobby. Seems like a normal band situation when considering "is this the best fit for them/band"
Bobby & business - if you really followed the Rhino/archive carefully you'd see that the band was in violation of their contract. Action needed to be taken. Phil was touring and others were otherwise absent. The band individually and as a whole were business fuckups. This followed suit. They all entered into a contract with Rhino and even before the ink dried they were in violation of it. I wouldn't read into this situation.
I guess when taking it all in I don't see anything really that makes me think - what an ass!
