I didn't really know Doc. But I did know him and his wife well enough to speak to them when I saw them out. He seemed like such a gentle person on and off the stage. It is sad for us here but he is looking into the face of our Lord this morning!

I met and worked with Doc many times as a videographer. A kinder and gentler man I've never known.

Wrong attitude. Death is part of life. This man known to all as Doc Watson, live a long and satisfying life. His leaving his body should be celebrated. Let's share his legacy with joy for the gifts he gave to all us who loved him. Think of the miracle of a blind man becoming one of the premier folk singers and guitar pickers of all time. He lives on as an icon of American folk music, an icon of the power of love to transcend adversity.

There is an album called "Legacy" which includes a beautiful interview conducted by Doc's partner in song of 14 years, David Holt. We in Asheville were treated to David's tribute to Doc at the Diana Wortham theater on Sunday. It was a memorable occasion which can be enjoyed over and over again if you own "Legacy" (Doc_Watson_album)
