GUEST,Phil Cooper Obit: John Fahey is Dead R.I.P. (Feb 2001) (20) RE: John Fahey is Dead R.I.P. 23 Feb 01

I was very sorry to hear about John Fahey's passing. I first saw him on a public TV show called Guitar, Guitar. I had only been playing a little over a year myself at that point (so it must have been '70 or '71). Watching him talk about open tunings changed the direction of my playing. The first Fahey album I bought was Dance of Death and Other Plantation Favorites. Many other albums of his followed. I always admired his substance over flash approach to guitar playing.
