Thread Name: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
Subject: RE: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
I remember seeing and hearing Doc at Tanglewood playing inbetween Emerson Lake and Somebody and Steeley Span {right after they parted ways with Martin Carthy}I would have loved seeing Martin Carthy and Doc Watson on the same stage! He and his son were wanderfull that day and alittle confused about being set in that situation. Always the gentelman Doc showed clarity and craftsmanship in true art.A year or two before that I remember meeting the bass player from the Dillards up on Gold Hill Near Bolder and he talked of Doc WAtson getting a Packard car{I think,}at age 16 and he promptly taking the thing apart and putting it back together again.THat sounds like the same man who can take a good tune apart and put it back together again in better shape!>>>>>>>>>
