Subject: RE: Obit: Doc Watson 1923 - 2012
Saw Doc live just once, in Chicago, approx 1980. I remember him getting a bit "cranky", momentarily about mike placement or something on that order, but promptly resetting the mood with a bit of humor and getting on with a fine performance. The world is out one virtuoso artist and "gentleman of the old school".
