GUEST,Neil Comer Help: why did Planxty disband? (22) RE: Help: why did Planxty disband? 15 Feb 00

Unfortunately, my theory about Planxty's untimely demise is slightly more cynical. Paul Brady joined Planxty in the late Seventies, then several months later, the band split. They re-formed to make the Album ( minus Brady), After the Break, but then split again. When Christy Moore was honoured on the Late Late Show, neither Paul Brady nor Andy Irvine ( the latter being one of the original Planxties) were present. I sense a fall-out. Call me cynical if you want, but musicians are infamous for the temperment.
