CREW MEMBERS FOR NEW EDITION
& GUY BRAWL-RESULTING IN MURDER:
In 1989, the road security
manager (Anthony Bee) for the vocal trio, ‘Guy,’ was shot
to death and another man was critically wounded in a dispute involving the crew
members of the groups ‘Guy,’ and ‘New Edition.’ Ronald Byrd (New
Edition's former production manager) was arrested on criminal homicide
and firearms violation. The dispute allegedly began during a performance in
Greensboro, N.C., the night before and carried over to Pittsburg.
The argument began over a dispute
of stage time. Allegedly, New Edition was concerned about being upstaged
by Guy according to the Pittsburg police. The crewmen then got into a
fight that lasted an hour, before the shooting took place.
