Happy Birthday, Doc
Mar 3, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Daily Kos
I will leave it to other, more technically savvy Kossacks to post some video, but I wanted to salute one of our national treasures, the one and only Doc Watson, on the occasion of his 89th birthday.
Respected, but never a "star,"
Not many have played on his par.
He stayed in his prime
For such a long time,
This master of flat-picked guitar.
(The legend refers to himself as "just one of the people.")
