Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar Doc and Merle Watson
From the moment I first saw him play at the Main Point, the Birchmere, Cul Pepper, Merle Fest - I've always loved Doc & Merle. His Memories album is one of my favorites and his humor and warmth on Tennessee Stud from the first Will The Circle Be Unbroken album is palatable. It's like loosing Mark Twain in my book - a true American treasure - he's with Merle now. Thank you Doc for making our time on Earth a richer, fuller, more enjoyable experience. You will be missed by millions.
