Subject: RE: Obit: Doc Watson 1923 - 2012
Doc Watson was a giant. Saw him perform a few times and he was a wizard on guitar and more than able to drop into blues, country, Appalachian, bluegrass--well, his normal dozen genres, but he also knew how to rock. He wasn't precious about his place in music--the man plain and simple liked to play. The arts took a hit with his death, but his legacy is walking around all over the world of music, a world he enhanced by his participation and ability to "carry it on".
