Thread Name: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
Subject: RE: Doc Watson: An appreciation.
What an inspiration Doc is. My first chance seeing him was at L.A.s long-time-gone Ash Grove, where he played with Merle. Last time I saw him was about a year ago when he toured with David Grisman. But I will have to agree, it is not the music (incredible and wonderful as it is) but it is the whole person. There is a peace that emanates from the man. (I would also like to recommend the video Doc and Dawg to anyone who has read this thread and felt the admiration for one of the few people who can be truly hailed as a hero.)
