Heard on the radio, this morning, tomorrow is his 78th birthday. Here's a little bit he wrote about earlier birthdays and his first instrument:

My very first instrument was a little harmonica," he recalls. "It was like the one I was playing Milk Cow Blues on out there (at the concert that evening) --- the same type. I got one every Christmas as far back as I can remember. And sometimes if I was a good boy, I got one for my birthday, because I usually wore them out pretty quick as a kid or lost them somewhere! "The first stringed instrument I had was a little homemade banjo that Dad made for me when I was 11. Then my first guitar came along when I was about 13. Though it was my second (stringed instrument), it was my first love as an instrument."

Happy Birthday, Doc!

It would be really cool if Jack Lawrence happened by to read this thread to him. If not, we can let this thread fill all day tomorrow, and then somebody can print this out and mail it to Doc.

Imagine... a world without Doc having entered it. Too awful.

Happy Birthday!

You can try emailing birthday greetings to Jack Lawrence and maybe he could pass along our birthday wishes and thanks to Doc. (His email address is publicly accessible on a couple of other forums, so it's not like I'm giving out confidential information.)
