MERLE IS THE KIND OF ENTERTAINER YOU WANT YOUR SON TO GO AND SEE. I BOUGHT TICS FOR SEVERAL FRIENDS WHO HAD NEVER SEEN MERLE AND THEY CAME AWAY AWED. I REMEMBERED WHEN I WAS ONLY IN TO BLUES AND ROCK AND WALKED INTO A MERLE CONCERT IN AUGUSTA GA AND WAS CONVERTED AND SAW THE LIGHT. I GOT HOLD OF ALL MERLES ALBUMS, MEMORIZED HIS SONGS AND STILL ENJOY MERLE WHEN HE COMES AROUND. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER SEEN HIM JUST GO ONCE LIKE I DID TO SEE WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT AND YOU WILL BE SURPRISED. I JUST BOUGHT TICS FOR MY 15 YEAR OLD SON TO SEE HIM AND TO UNDERSTAND WHAT A REAL LEGEND IS AND WHY. THANKS MERLE FOR ALL THE CONCERTS AND GREAT SONGS, YOU HAVE MADE OUR LIFE BETTER AND RICHER. IT WILL BE A SAD DAY FOR AMERICA WHEN YOU NO LONGER WALK ACROSS THE STAGE-FOREVER-JUST ONE OF YOUR FANS.
