Doc Watson was one of my greatest inspirations and not just me, he inspired countless others including Clarence White and Tony Rice. I was fortunate enough to get to meet him once and talk to him. I was pretty lame and didn’t have much to say. I really blew my chance. Another friend gave him a ride to the airport and he had just been listening to Steven Hawkings’ “Brief History of Time,” and was interested in black holes, quantum mechanics, and Hawkings’ Radiation. I am interested in that stuff too, I wish we had talked about that. So much for my stereotypes of hillbillies.
