GUEST,SirCoughsalot Musicians You've Met (or would like to) (62* d) Musicians You've Met (or would like to) 16 Oct 11


Pretty much what it says on the title. What folk or other musicians have you met, under what circumstances, what were they like, etc. And you can say who you'd really like to meet.

Personally, 'bout the only folks whose names anybody'd recognize have been at the bluegrass festivals. I met Bobby Osborne (great dude, but I don't think he knew what to make of me. I was shaking when I met him) Ralph Stanley (who was pretty cranky, but I figure he was just tired), Rhonda Vincent (friendly, but pressed for time), Melvin Goins (a very nice man), and probably a bunch of others I'm forgetting. Bluegrass festivals are a great place to meet your heroes. Only, I usually have a hard time approaching them without seeming like a silly starstruck kid.

An acquaintance of mine met Dock Boggs and John Hurt back in the coffehouse days of the 60s. He said Mr. Boggs was pretty cranky, but probably just tired, and that Mr. Hurt was the nicest man in the world, pretty much.

So, I'm curious to hear the stories.
