Subject: RE: 'Bonanza' guitarist
You are right, the character broke his leg, however Hoss did not shoot him. The leg wasn't set properly, and although the character recovered, he could not walk afterward without crutches, but using crutches he couldn't hold his guitar. Given a choice between the two, he chose his guitar as any good folksinger would do. Of course the character's name was Hop Sing. John
