Thread Name: 'Bonanza' guitarist
Subject: 'Bonanza' guitarist
Sometime in the sixties "Bonanza" had an episode that featured some actor (?) who played slide, or razor, or knifeblade acoustic guitar. I recall the song he'd return to as "Old Howard's dead and gone", etc.(not the melody used in the Doors'song, and I may be wrong about the old name, but I'm sure it wasn't Otis.) Does anyone know who the picker was? (He was a thief in the plot;perhaps he broke his leg and Hoss had to shoot him).
