We have lost one of the icons of our genre with the passing of Stan Wilson. He influenced so many of the folk music artists in the 60's and 70's who made it and many of us who didn't !! A kind gentle man with a wonderful knack for a song, he wrote and sang some like one of Gabriels' choir and the rest like no body else could !! He played an old beat up guitar as if it were endowed and I shall miss him. I only saw him perform once - at the Purple Onion in San Francisco in 61-62 but I still remember him doing "I Am a Moonshiner" like it was yesterday. I often wonder why those of us who worship get to live longer than those worshipped - rest well Stan - we'll never forget you.
