ok help me out here. was george the lead singer with past the shoulder length hair, and was 59? i saw him and rest of the band along with charlie daniels and the outlaws a few weks ago in northern california. having cancer may explain why he did not show much interest while m t was on stage.

I think George left the band in 1983 or 1984.
