Doc Watson was one of the most influential guitar pickers of our time, and he passed away 29 May 2012. Struck blind before the age of 1, he overcame his handicap with hard work and earned talent. Here he is with Chet Atkins (d.2001) and a young Leo Kottke. I’m guessing the vid is from the late 70s.
[Personal gripe: Folks who post these vids on the Utoobage should give some detail in the descriptions. Many do, but too many don’t.]
And speaking of personal gripes, it’s time for a big ‘ol honkin’ pickin’ & flickin’ Saturday Night edition of The Overnight Open Thread.
