Assumptions is all we have. I interviewed Richard West a few years ago in Estonia. He confirmed the rumour that Glynn Morgan did ask for an audition when Mac left Threshold in 2007. By coincidence and just few weeks before Mac left, Damian Wilson and Richard had had a conversation where Damian said that he actually missed singing in Threshold. Damian had also had been in stronger contact with the band than Glynn after he left, so according to West, they didn't consider bringing Glynn back to band at that point. Damian was the only option to replace Mac. Also, Richard said that they didn't even want to find a "new" singer since they felt that Threshold fans have certain expectations and they want to keep their fanbase happy. The point is that Glynn Morgan could have replaced Mac back in 2007 if the stars would have been aligned differently at that point.
I also met Damian in Estonia. We didn't talk much, but he seemed to be very open person. We know that he likes to hang out with the fans and obviously he also likes to party which might have had something to do with the band firing him. Then again, why let him do the vocals for the new album and then fire him? Maybe West and Groom weren't happy with his performance and decided to bring Glynn back. Tough decision but then again West had worked with Glynn in League of Lights and knows that Glynn is still as good as he was back in 1994.
I guess we'll know more when the dust settles a bit.
