When a band loses its lead singer, it can be difficult for the remaining members to continue creating the same sound. Many music fans, casual ones in particular, identify an artist or band by the dominant singing voice, and future iterations with a different lineup can struggle to retain their audience.

Summer, when I was a kid, meant weekend road-trips in our family Rambler to sites of historical interest. We'd pack up deviled-ham sandwiches and Cokes and make pilgrimages from our apartment in Queens to Teddy Roosevelt's house on Long Island or Washington Irving's house in Westchester. Sometimes there were longer expeditions to Valley Forge and, once, Williamsburg. I'm not sure how much history I absorbed; I mostly remember a lot of candle-making demonstrations.
