Subject: RE: Who influenced you to become a musician
When I was really young my grandfather,when in his cups,would sing "Casey Jones" to me. Then the Trio, Jimmy Dean, Marty Robbins, Johnny Horton. It was The Stones and the Yardbirds that made me pick up the guitar, tho. When I was about 20 I heard a local folksinger named Ed Hart flatpick " Coal Tatoo" and "Co'dine" and that was thirty five years ago,and I played BOTH of 'em this morning!Oh yea, Little Hawk, I'd put 'em Tyson, Sainte Marie,Dylan..............Baez. Mike. p.s. I play ALOT of John Stewart
